A propos de l'auteur

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 afficher plus 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) afficher moins
Notice de désambiguation :

(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.

Courte biographie
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.
Notice de désambigüisation
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.

Qui achèterait, si le prix devait en être payé comptant ? »

> « Il me semble que c'est une caractéristique de la vie américaine que ces étudiants frustes, au teint hâlé et aux mains calleuses, que leur éducation préparait à devenir fermiers. Dans neuf cas sur dix ils sont incapables d'acquérir quelque culture que ce soit, car des hommes d'âge mûr, ayant en eux tant soit peu de substantifique moelle, auraient depuis longtemps dépassé le cap du lycée ou des premières années d'université. Je crains qu'on ne reçoive, au mieux, que quelques misérables connaissances superficielles, dans ces collèges de campagne. »

> Voici un beau livre avec une belle écriture du siècle passé. j'ai trouvé la référence de cet écrivain en lisant Stephen King. Il relatait avoir été fortement impressionné par cette lecture, et venant de lui, dans le genre, ce n'est pas rien. J'ai bien aimé.

J’avais beaucoup aimé ce court roman lorsque je l’ai découvert il y a à peu près un an et j’ai depuis continué à m’intéresser à cet auteur bien qu’il soit très éloigné de mes préoccupations habituelles de lectrice.
J’étais donc contente de trouver cette version audio pour faire découvrir ce texte à M’sieur Raton. Mais me voilà bien déçue car il s’agit d’une adaptation un peu trop adaptée à mon goût, et qui met l’emphase sur la partie qui m’a paru la moins intéressante du roman (l’espèce de triangle amoureux de la seconde partie du roman), en oubliant presque complètement la complexité de la réaction de la femme adultère, Hester Prynne, prise entre repentir et fierté. Mieux vaut donc lire le livre directement et ne pas s’attarder sur cette adaptation trop tronquée à mon goût.… (plus d'informations)
