The House of the Seven Gables, a fixture in Hawthorne's Salem, serves as the ancestral home of the fictional Pyncheon family;whose distinguished legacy is tainted by pious thievery. When country cousin Phoebe arrives at the house, she is like a cool breeze, refreshing a room that has been sealed for too long. The resulting mixture of dark and light imagery, illustrated by Hawthorne's rich prose, makes this romance an important American classic.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Nathaniel Hawthorne's great-grandfather never repented his involvement in the Salem witch trials. Hawthrone added a "W" to "Hathorne" to further distance himself from his family's disgraceful past as he himself was a resident of Salem.

'Haunted'? 'Cursed'? Good grief. Remember that it was written in 1850 and don't go looking for a thrilling Hallowe'en read here! Quite verbose, as novels of that time were, it takes awhile - a long while, to develop. Not one of my favourites.
