Notes

Abstract: This presentation discusses research on Nathaniel Hawthorne's political aims and divided audience. In the prefaces of his novels and short stories, Hawthorne explores conflicts that surface when factional tyranny occurs in a democratic state. His prefaces introduce these conflicts and act as guides on how to read what follows. Despite the settings of his stories - often in the years of America's infancy - Hawthorne uses allegorical connections to comment on the dilemmas of his present. In this way he is, perhaps, advocating a revision of the sociopolitical state of antebellum New England and indirectly promoting an agenda that will be capable of bringing the faults of his country to light.
