Title: Nathaniel Hawthorne and The Minister


1
Nathaniel Hawthorne and The Ministers Black Veil
  • 1804-1864

2
The Ministers Black Veil
  • Symbol is a person, place or thing that has
    meaning in itself but also stands for something
    more than itself

3
The Ministers Black Veil
  • Parable a short, usually simple story, based on
    events from ordinary life, from which a moral
    lesson can be drawn

4
Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • By midlife he had won recognition for his writing
  • It was as if his dark insights into the human
    heart had cast gloom into his own

5
Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • His writing is more admired today then it was
    then
  • In it there is an awareness of guilt that
    accompanies Puritan conscience

6
Prisoner of the Dismal Chamber
  • His family life was filled with loss
  • Attended Bowdoin College in Maine
  • He chewed tobacco, played cards, drank wine at
    the taverns and avoided intellectual life

7
Prisoner of the Dismal Chamber
  • In Salem he lived in the dismal chamber
  • Room in the 3rd floor of his family house
  • He was prisoner there for 12 years and when he
    emerged he published great works of fiction
  • Hawthorne moved to Concord and lived with his wife

8
A Novel with No Cheering Light
  • Masterpiece The Scarlet Letter
  • positively a hell-fired story, into which I
    found it almost impossible to throw any cheering
    light
  • A story of sin and redemption and the
    consequences of hypocrisy and concealed guilt

9
Out of Harmony with His Times
  • Moved to Europe for 7 years and after his return
    he felt out of place in America
  • He died in a New Hampshire Hotel
  • This path is the only remembrance of me that
    will remain.

10
The Ministers Black Veil
  • Think and Respond
  • Do people still carry guilt for secret sins
    committed in the past? Can those secrets isolate
    a person from others and themselves?
  • Think of something sinful that you are not so
    proud of doing and imagine if you had to tell
    everyone you met about that one thing or you had
    to wear a reminder (symbol) of it all the time.
