O knihe

Nathaniel Hawthorne`s gripping psychological drama concerns the Pyncheon family, a dynasty founded on pious theft, who live for generations under a dead man`s curse until their house is finally exorcised by love. Hawthorne, by birth and education, was instilled with the Puritan belief in America`s limitless promise. Yet-in part because of blemishes on his own family history-he also saw the darker side of the young nation. Like his twentieth-century heirs William Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hawthorne peered behind propriety`s facade and exposed the true human condition.
