Sobre El Autor

Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts. When he was four years old, his father died. Years later, with financial help from his maternal relatives who recognized his literary talent, Hawthorne was able to enroll in Bowdoin College. Among his classmates were the mostrar más important literary and political figures Horatio Bridge, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Franklin Pierce. These friends supplied Hawthorne with employment during the early years after graduation while Hawthorne was still establishing himself as a legitimate author. Hawthorne's first novel, Fanshawe, which he self-published in 1828, wasn't quite the success that he had hoped it would be. Not willing to give up, he began writing stories for Twice-Told Tales. These stories established Hawthorne as a leading writer. In 1842, Hawthorne moved to Concord, Massachusetts, where he wrote a number of tales, including "Rappaccini's Daughter" and "Young Goodman Brown," that were later published as Mosses from an Old Manse. The overall theme of Hawthorne's novels was a deep concern with ethical problems of sin, punishment, and atonement. No one novel demonstrated that more vividly than The Scarlet Letter. This tale about the adulterous Puritan Hester Prynne is regarded as Hawthorne's best work and is a classic of American literature. Other famous novels written by Hawthorne include The House of Seven Gables and The Blithedale Romance. In 1852, Hawthorne wrote a campaign biography of his college friend Franklin Pierce. After Pierce was elected as President of the United States, he rewarded Hawthorne with the Consulship at Liverpool, England. Hawthorne died in his sleep on May 19, 1864, while on a trip with Franklin Pierce. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos
Nota de desambiguación:

(eng) Hawthorne added the 'w' to his last name out of guilt and shame due to the fact that his ancestor was Judge Hathorne at the famous Salem Witch Trials.

Biografía breve
Nathaniel Hawthorne (July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist, dark romantic, and short story writer. His works often focus on history, morality, and religion.

He was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts, to Nathaniel Hathorne and the former Elizabeth Clarke Manning. His ancestors include John Hathorne, the only judge involved in the Salem witch trials who never repented of his actions. He entered Bowdoin College in 1821, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in 1824, and graduated in 1825. He published his first work in 1828, the novel Fanshawe; he later tried to suppress it, feeling that it was not equal to the standard of his later work. He published several short stories in periodicals, which he collected in 1837 as Twice-Told Tales. The next year, he became engaged to Sophia Peabody. He worked at the Boston Custom House and joined Brook Farm, a transcendentalist community, before marrying Peabody in 1842. The couple moved to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, later moving to Salem, the Berkshires, then to The Wayside in Concord. The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. A political appointment as consul took Hawthorne and family to Europe before their return to Concord in 1860. Hawthorne died on May 19, 1864, and was survived by his wife and their three children.

Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral metaphors with an anti-Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his college friend Franklin Pierce, the 14th President of the United States.
Aviso de desambiguación
Hawthorne added the 'w' to his last name out of guilt and shame due to the fact that his ancestor was Judge Hathorne at the famous Salem Witch Trials.

Reseñas

Las historias reunidas en estas Leyendas del Bosque Frondoso evocan un tiempo que la fantasía mantendrá eterno: el de los hermosos mitos de la Grecia clásica, con sus dioses antropomórficos, sus dragones, gigantes, minotauros, sus extraños amores y traiciones, sus palacios encantados y héroes de epopeya y ficción.
Continuando el objetivo que Nathaniel Hawthorne se marcara con El Libro de las Maravillas para Chicos y Chicas (nº 18 de La Cuna de Ulises), nos ofrece nuevamente la oportunidad de seguir disfrutando con la primera infancia del mundo, cuando “el mal aún no existía; y el dolor, la desgracia y el crimen no eran sino sombras que la imaginación desbocada inventaba a fin de paliar un poco el exceso luminoso de la realidad”.
Se trata, en suma, de un clásico de la literatura juvenil de todos los tiempos, presentado por primera vez en castellano gracias a la bellísima versión de José Kozer.

Wakefield. Este cuento de Hawthorne pertenece a la segunda serie de Twice-Told Tales, publicada en Boston en 1842. Fuera de un parmonioso elogio de Poe y de alguna ocasional interpretación de índole biográfica -Wakefield sería un símbolo de Hawthrone- la crítica parece haber ignorado esta composición admirable. Hawthorne, en otras páginas, se apoya en un pasado romántico; en esta, la materia es contemporánea y el interés procede a la singular psicología del protagonista. Wakefild, como fantasía de la conducta, como estudio patético de las posibilidades humanas, anticipa el Bartleby (1856) de Melville y las invenciones de Kafka.

En la ciudad puritana de Boston, una multitud se reúne en junio de 1642 para presenciar el castigo de Hester Prynne, una joven declarada culpable de adulterio y condenada a llevar una "A" escarlata de adúltera en su vestido para su vergüenza. La sentencia le obliga a permanecer durante tres horas en la picota expuesta a la humillación pública. A pesar de las presiones para que confiese el nombre del padre de su hija, Hester se niega.

El esposo de Hester, que llevaba tiempo desaparecido en el mar, aparece a tiempo para presenciar el castigo y enterarse del adulterio de su esposa. Encolerizado, se hace pasar por el médico Roger Chillingworth para intentar descubrir al amante de su esposa.

Chillingworth visita a Hester en la cárcel y la obliga a ocultar su identidad. Tras su liberación, Hester se instala en las afueras y se gana la vida como costurera. A medida que crece, su hija Pearl se convierte en una chica caprichosa y rebelde, y los miembros de la iglesia sugieren que Pearl sea apartada de su madre. Hester apela al reverendo Dimmesdale en la desesperación, y el ministro convence al gobernador para que Pearl permanezca bajo su cuidado.

Dimmesdale enferma y Chillingworth se instala en su casa. Chillingworth sospecha que la enfermedad del ministro se debe a un sentimiento de culpabilidad, y mientras lo trata, descubre una marca de nacimiento que confirma sus sospechas.

Tras un inspirado sermón, Dimmesdale sube a la picota, confiesa públicamente su pecado y muere en brazos de Hester. Chillingworth, que ha perdido el objeto de su venganza, fallece poco después, dejando a Pearl una herencia considerable.

Años después, Hester regresa a casa y vuelve a usar la letra escarlata. Al morir, la entierran junto a Dimmesdale y sobre la tumba de ambos se coloca una sencilla lápida de pizarra grabada con un escudo: en campo de sable, una letra A de gules (en un campo negro una letra A roja).
