Nathaniel Hawthorne

1804 — 1864

Nathaniel Hawthorne was an American novelist and short story writer. Much of Hawthorne’s writing centres around New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often centre on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity.
