Summary

Summary

Introduces and sets in context the enormous range of critical arguments that have been generated by this enduring work. From the comments and reviews of Hawthorne's contemporaries through discussions of the novel by fellow artists such as Henry James and D.H. Lawrence, to radical re-readings of the postwar decades, the reader is given an invaluable guide to the critical progress of this key American text.
