of Hawthorne Most of the major figures in American literature is “lost people”. Every American democratic individual had to discover himself, as ever happened in reality. A true American novelist must also invent new forms of expression – from which came the whimsical, bizarre silhouette of Melville’s Moby-Dick novel and Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym. Mr. Arthur Gordon Pym) Poe’s dreamy, wander. Few American novels have achieved exemplary perfection, even today. Instead of borrowing literary tactics that have been tested over time, Americans tend to explore new creative methods. In America, something that has been recognized and followed by society is not enough, because old age and orthodoxy are left behind, only new strength, creativity is the center of attention.
The type of romance novel is gloomy and uncertain, showing how difficult it is to create a unique appearance in an unstable society. Most of the romance novel characters die at the end, all the crew are sunk in the ocean floor in Moby-Dick except for Ishmael; the faulty pastor, Arthur Dimmesdale, also died at the end of The Scarlet Letter. The tragic, dissociated tone in American literature became prominent in the genre of fiction, even before the Civil War in the 1960s, manifesting a greater tragedy of a war-declared society. with myself.
Nathaniel Hawthorne(1804 – 1864)
Nathaniel Hawthorne belongs to the fifth generation of English immigrants. He was born in Salem Massachusetts, a prosperous seaport located north of Boston specializing in trade with East India  . One of his ancestors was a judge who specialized in trials of women accused of witchcraft in Salem, a century ago. Hawthorne used the idea of a curse for an evil judge’s family in his novel The House of the Seven Gables.
Many of Hawthorne’s stories are set in Puritan New England, and his greatest novel The Scarlet Letter (1850), has become a classic portrait of Puritan America. The book tells about the passionate, forbidden love affair between a young, confident, very sensitive young man – pastor Arthur Dimmesdale, and a beautiful, downright seductive woman, Hester Prymn. Set in Boston around 1650 in the early Puritan period, the novel highlights the Calvinists’ obsession with morality, sexual suppression, sin, confession, and save the soul.
At that time, The Scarlet Letter was a very blasphemous book. The gentle writing of Hawthorne, the backdrop of ancient and vague history has softened his fierce subject and satisfied the public, while discerning authors like Ralph Waldo Emerson and Herman Melville acknowledge its “demonic” power. The book touched on taboo areas in 19th-century America such as the impact of free, democratic and innovation activities on the conduct of each individual, especially on sexuality and self-reliance. due to religion.
The book is very well written with great layout. Metaphor, a tactic used by early Puritan colonists, is also used in this work logically.
Other Hawthorne novels and stories also contributed to his reputation. In The House of the Seven Gables (1854), he returns to New England history again. The collapse of the “house” implies a family in Salem as well as its true structure. The theme of the story is about an eternal curse and how to lift it with love. As one reviewer noted, the idealistic protagonist Holgrave spoke up about his democratic distrust of old aristocratic families: “The truth is, each half a century, at least one family will integrate into the obscure, great crowd of humanity, and forget all the glorious past of the ancestors. ”
Hawthorne’s last two novels were less successful. Both use a modern setting and thus lose the magic power in his pen. The Blithedale Romance (1852) is very attractive by the picture depicting the Brook Farm community in utopian socialism. In this book, Hawthorne criticizes selfish social reformers, craves for power, and is deeply undemocratic by nature. The Marble Faun (1860), though set in Rome, focuses heavily on Puritan topics on sin, isolation, penance, and salvation.
These topics, and the specific contexts of Puritan New England colonialism, are the hallmark of many of Hawthorne’s famous shorter works: The Minister’s Black Veil. professor), Young Goodman Brown (Brown young kind person), and My Kinsman, Major Molineux (My cousin, Mayor of Molineux). This story is about a young man from the countryside to the province – a common model in the US during the urbanization of the 19th century – seeking the help of a powerful relative, a career man, a brother. never met. Robin goes through a lot of hard work to find the Mayor and eventually engages in a strange night rebellion, in which a man who seems to be a rogue “achievement” criminal is fired. out of town both ridiculous and barbaric. Robin laughed out loudly than anyone until he discovered that this “criminal” was no one else but the one he was trying to find – a representative of the British colonialists who had just been pants. they revolutionized overthrow. The story affirms the bonds of sin and suffering that all humanity has to share. It also praised the self-made man: Robin must study, like every democratic American, to become rich through hard work, not special favors from rich relatives. have.
My Kinsman, Major Molineux shed light on one of the most prominent elements in Hawthorne’s novel: the absence of a fully functional family element in his work. Although Cooper’s Leather-Stocking Tales (Cooper’s Tales of Leather Socks) takes family models to the least-wild locations, Hawthorne’s stories and novels replicate the owner. deals with broken, cursed or broken families and isolated individual suffering.
The revolutionary ideology also ‘probably had a role in radiating this sense of this unfamiliar, proud pride. The American Revolution, from a historical psychological perspective, is compatible with an impulsive rebellion that wants to escape from the giant shadow of the Motherland, and a larger British imperial family. Americans gained independence and were again faced with a bewildering dilemma in discovering their own identity separate from old ties. This scene has happened so many times in the frontier that the escape, in fiction, seems to be the basic living condition in America. Puritans and their Protestant descendants may have undermined the foundation of the family by preaching that each individual’s first responsibility is the salvation of his soul.
