    Dover Publications 2012; US$ 3.50

    Murder and romance, innocence and experience dominate this sinister novel set in mid-19th-century Rome. Three young American artists and their friend, an Italian count, find their lives irrevocably linked when one of them commits a violent crime of passion.

  • The Blithedale Romanceby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2010; US$ 3.99

    The residents of the Blithedale farm wish to make it into a modern Arcadia, free from the pollution of society. But they form such a varied, self-interested group, that their efforts are in vain. The misogynistic Hollingsworth wants to turn it into a sanctuary for reformed criminals; the exotic feminist Zenobia is helplessly attracted to Hollingsworth;... more...

  • Fanshaweby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    Hawthorne's first published novel, Fanshawe combines romantic themes with an engaging look at college life in the early nineteenth century.

  • The Great Stone Faceby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 2.99

    This collection of tales is an engaging compendium of Hawthorne's short stories, including many set in and around the writer's native New England. The title story is a charming fable-like tale that takes as its focus a long-famous geological feature in the New Hampshire mountains (the face-like granite protrusion collapsed in 2003). more...

  • The House of the Seven Gablesby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2010; US$ 4.99

    In an old, gloomy New England mansion, a woman opens a shop to support her brother, recently returned from prison.

The fragile bond between this group is shaken by the secret history of the house and their wealthy cousin who wants to take... more...

  • The Marble Faunby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    Though Nathaniel Hawthorne is best remembered as the author of the quintessential American parable The Scarlet Letter, some of the New England writer's work was much less formal and traditional than that novel. In fact, some critics regard The Marble Faun, rife with impressionistic and fantastical elements, as downright experimental by comparison.... more...

  • Mosses From an Old Manseby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    Nathaniel Hawthorne is regarded as one of the masters of early American short fiction. Long-time fans and curious newcomers will appreciate this collection of Hawthorne's short stories, which brings together some of his most important early work and was praised by a chorus of illustrious contemporaries such as Melville, Poe, and Whitman. more...

  • The Scarlet Letterby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2008; US$ 3.95

    In the puritanical Boston of the 17th Century, a woman gives birth after committing adultery. That woman, Hester Prynne, choses to create a new life for herself in the face of adversity rather than succumb to what is expected of her. She will not name the father. Her decision opens up the tension between religious life and the true grace of God, and... more...

  • Septimius Feltonby Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    One of Nathaniel Hawthorne's later works, Septimius Felton is a beguiling and thought-provoking tale of murder most foul. One of a series of the author's works that grapple with themes of immortality, Septimius Felton was written shortly before Hawthorne himself succumbed to a mysterious illness, a fact that lends a dimension of profound poignancy... more...
