Title: Nathaniel Hawthorne's Tales

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s best-loved tales are now available in a revised Norton Critical Edition.

This revised Norton Critical Edition brings together twenty-three of Hawthorne’s tales in all their psychological and moral complexity. The Second Edition adds the early biographical sketch “Mrs. Hutchinson” as well as two tales, “The Wives of the Dead” and “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment.” Each tale is accompanied by explanatory annotations.

“The Author on His Work” contains the prefaces Hawthorne wrote for the three collections of tales published during his lifetime—The Old Manse, Twice-Told Tales, and The Snow Image. Also included are pertinent selections from his American Notebooks and relevant letters to, among others, Sophia Peabody, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Margaret Fuller.

“Criticism” offers important contemporary assessments of Hawthorne’s tales by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, Margaret Fuller (new to the Second Edition), James Russell Lowell, Herman Melville, and Henry James. Modern criticism is well represented by twelve essays—four of them new to the Second Edition—on the tales’ central issues. Contributors include Jorge Louis Borges, J. Hillis Miller, Judith Fetterley, Nina Baym, Leo Marx, and Martin Bidney, among others.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.

Title: Selected Tales and Sketches

With a determined commitment to the history of his native land, Nathaniel Hawthorne revealed, more incisively than any writer of his generation, the nature of a distinctly American consciousness. The pieces collected here deal with essential American matters: the Puritan past, the Indians, the Revolution. But Hawthorne was highly-often wickedly-unorthodox in his account of life in early America, and his precisely constructed plots quickly engage the reader's imagination. Written in the 1820s, '30s, and '40s, these works are informed by themes that reappear in Hawthorne's longer works: The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables, and The Blithedale Romance. And, as Michael J. Colacurcio points out in his excellent introduction, they are themes that are now deeply embedded in the American literary tradition.
