Title: Nathaniel Hawthorne


1
Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • No man, for any considerable period, can wear
    one face to himself and another to the multitude,
    without finally getting bewildered as to which
    may be true.

2
  • Consumed with original sin, evil as a corrupting
    presence and human isolation
  • Evil leaves its mark generation after generation
  • Human isolation (spiritual)--- twelve dark
    years

3
Not always so anti-transcendental(or perhaps he
was)
  • Did join Brook Farm and the transcendental
    experiment
  • Problems here no balance between physical and
    intellectual labor
  • Never truly believed this idealistic group would
    change a wicked world to a good one
  • Left Brook Farm, married, toiled, wrote, toiled,
    became more depressed, toiled, etc

4
  • Died 1864 after taking a walk to restore his
    health (physically and spiritually)
  • Emerson and Thoreau would be disappointed to
    learn of such demise at natures hands
  • Or perhaps he died from solitude
  • the painful solitude of manhe died from
    it.---Emerson

5
  • burrowing into the depths of our common nature
    there is an inner world in which every human
    being is alone in the saddest of all prisons,
    his own heart---Hawthorne

  • 4 people
  • Mr. Medbourne

  • Mirror
  • Rose

8
Allegorical Elements
  • Consider what the 4 people lost/represented/tried
    to get back

9
  • What characteristics of writing does this
    allegory use?
  • In what ways is this writing style similar to
    other authors we have studied? (specific lines?)
  • In what ways is this story anti-transcendental?
  • How does this story illustrate Hawthornes views
    on humanity?

10
Project Options???

  • of such (essence of human nature)
