Read full description of the books Racconti raccontati due volte:I Racconti raccontati due volte sono così intitolati perché si richiamano a tradizionali orali elaborate dall'autore: ora in una visione nostalgica del mondo arcaico e primitivo della "nuova frontiera", ora proiettate nel futuro della nuova società americana, dov'è preminente la figura dell'uomo nella folla delle nascenti metropoli, ora volte a riflettere sul ruolo delle scienze e delle arti, quasi a prefigurare allegoricamente la loro non facile coesistenza nella nascita di una nazione sorta dalla Guerra d'Indipendenza contro il colonialismo britannico.
Read information about the authorNathaniel Hawthorne was a 19th century American novelist and short story writer. He is seen as a key figure in the development of American literature for his tales of the nation's colonial history.
Shortly after graduating from Bowdoin College, Hathorne changed his name to Hawthorne. Hawthorne anonymously published his first work, a novel titled Fanshawe, in 1828. In 1837, he published Twice-Told Tales and became engaged to Sophia Peabody the next year. He worked at a Custom House and joined a Transcendentalist Utopian community, before marrying Peabody in 1842. The couple moved to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts, later moving to Salem, the Berkshires, then to The Wayside in Concord. The Scarlet Letter was published in 1850, followed by a succession of other novels. A political appointment took Hawthorne and family to Europe before returning to The Wayside in 1860. Hawthorne died on May 19, 1864, leaving behind his wife and their three children.
Much of Hawthorne's writing centers around New England and many feature moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His work is considered part of the Romantic movement and includes novels, short stories, and a biography of his friend, the United States President Franklin Pierce.
