The Neurosis Of Nathaniel Hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne
"Nathaniel Hawthorne's work is typically fraught with symbolism, much of it deriving from his Puritan ancestry; a great-great uncle was actually a judge in the Salem witchcraft trials" (Roth 76). Not surprisingly, Hawthorne was obsessed with the twin themes of sin and guilt. Author John Roth notes that "A number of recurring thematic patterns and character types appear in Hawthorne's novels and tales. These repetitions show Hawthorne's emphasis on the effects of events on the human heart rather ...

English 101
In comparing and contrasting the stories “Worn Path” and “Young GoodMann Brown”. Several things come to mind . We see that both authors use a lot of symbolism as well as foreshadowing. Also, Both stories take place in the forest or along a path. In the story “Worn Path” the author makes use of symbolism in diffident ways. The most obvious example is that the path, itself , symbolizes the old women. She is desc- ribed as bent , crooked, old and wore out. This description would al...

Evil Of Man
Evil. Morally reprehensible acts according to Webster's Dictionary. Evil. It is a characteristic that is endowed only to man here on Earth, for only man is intelligent enough to make decisions and know of their consequences. This, however, is where a question lays; why does man commit evil if he knows of its consequences? Many author's works are bound by similarities of the same wrestling with this question. According to Mark Twain's depiction of evil through the protagonist named story of The ...

The Bondage Of Sin (The Scarlet Letter)
The Bondage of Sin After reading three stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter, The Minister’s Black Veil, and Young Goodman Brown, a topic of Hawthorne’s viewpoint on the bondage of sin arises, as the subject is so intently tied into each of the above stories. Hawthorne insinuates that within every human soul there lurks a dark evil side: a side that can’t resist the temptations that come to pass in every man’s life, which lead to a decline in health. However, he sele...

Young Good Man Brown
"Young Goodman Brown", by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is an allegorical story just like Hawthorne's another allegorical novel, the Scarlet Letter. Hawthorne's writing style appears to be the same in both "Young Goodman Brown" and the Scarlet Letter. For instance, Hawthorne leaves us ambiguity in the end for both stories. For "Young Goodman Brown", he does not let us know if Brown's whole trip with the Devil is a dream or reality. Scarlet Letter, at the same time, does not explain which interpretati...

Patriotism
On July 4, 1776, the fathers of the United States of America formally declared our independence from British rule. Lacking a stable government and financial resources, our predecessors marched on an endless grid of bloody battle fields with the vision of a new nation---a nation in which they shared a love not for what it was, but for what it had the potential to be. This was an era of absolute allegiance, when little boys paid homage to our politicians and hoped to one day be a leader in a fre...

Hawthorne's Bartelby the Scrivener
I began my Hawthorne reading task with The Birth-Mark. I picked this story because I am familiar with the Maypole of Merrymount and Young Goodman Brown, and I wanted to try something different. I was pleasantly surprised with The Birth-Mark, in my mind it far surpasses the latter two stories. I think one of the most admirable traits of Hawthorne is his ability to write as though actions are taking place somewhere in the present. Aylmer could very well live today, somewhere in the worl...
