Hawthorne - Henry James


By Henry James

  • Release Date: 1916-01-01
  • Genre: Biographies & Memoirs


In this critique of one literary genius by another, James not only considers Hawthorne as a man and a writer, but he uses his subject as a vantage point from which to present his views on American culture. James assesses the place of the writer in 19th-century America as well as the disparate values of the Old World and the New.
