The scarlet letter: In the early days of Puritan Boston Hester Prynne braves the stigma of adultery by wearing the embroidered scarlet "A" on her clothing. Hester resists oppression and unearths new temptations at the margins of society, where the primeval forests hang their evil influence pendulously over the evil flourishing within the community itself.
The house of the seven gables: This novel of crime and retribution reflects the social and moral values of New England in the 1840s. It is the story of the Pyncheon family, a dynasty founded on pious theft who lived for generations under a dead man's curse until their house was finally exorcised by love.
Blithedale romance: Based on Hawthorne's own experience of a Utopian socialist community outside Boston, this novel tells of the attempts of a like-minded group to begin reforming a dissipated America. However, rather than dropping bad habits and changing the world, they find themselves pursuing egotistical paths.
Marble faun: The fragility of human life and art dominate this story of American expatriates in Italy in the mid-19th century. Befriended by Donatello, a young Italian with the classical grace of the "Marble Faun", Miriam, Hilda, and Kenyon find their pursuit of art taking a sinister turn.
