Nathaniel Hawthorne Short Story Project Life is made

Nathaniel Hawthorne Short Story Project Life is made up of marble and mud. Nathaniel Hawthorne Although both are considered Romantics, Poe described conflict between the two sides of the intellect,

but Hawthorne described conflict between intellect and heart. What did Poe think of Hawthorne? "Mr. Hawthorne's distinctive trait is invention, creation, imagination, originalitya trait which, in the literature of fiction, is positively worth all the rest," wrote a literary critic named Edgar Allan Poe in a review of Nathaniel

Hawthorne's 1846 story collection, Twice Told Tales. "The style is purity itself. Force abounds. High imagination gleams from every page. Mr. Hawthorne is a man of the truest genius." A few more things we may not remember about Hawthorne . . . Hawthorne did not have a rosy view of human nature. Perhaps because of this, Hawthorne kept mostly to himself. He was painfully shy and rarely invited anyone to

the home he shared with his wife and three children. A friend of his said at the time, "I love Hawthorne, I admire him; but I do not know him. He lives in a mysterious world of thought and imagination which he never permits me to enter. If Hawthorne was alive today, he probably wouldn't even be on Facebook. Maybe it's easier to know him 150 years after his death, now that we have access to the journals and personal papers he fiercely guarded during his lifetime.

He did have some pretty famous friends and other writers who thought very highly of him . . . For example . . . For Hawthorne, who for years wrote in obscurity, penning stories and novels in the hours after his boring desk job (at The Custom House), the praise must have been welcome. Yet despite his success as a writer, friends and acquaintances noticed a brooding side to his character, as

though he was haunted by something darker. "In his conversation, as in his books, you feel that there is some bitter fairy, which is biting him all the time, and which he is unable to conceal, his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson said of him. Herman Melville was writing a novel and suffering from serious writer's block when he read Hawthorne's short story

collection Mosses From an Old Manse. He was inspired, and eventually dedicated his finished novel, Moby Dick, to Hawthorne. And, you should also know Henry David Thoreau planted a vegetable garden for newlyweds Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne as a wedding present! Not too shabby!
