Hawthorne was one of the great masters of American fiction.
Hawthorne a fost unul din cei mai mari maeştri ai ficţiunii americane.
His novels and tales are penetrating explorations of moral and spiritual conflicts, and his masterpiece, The Scarlet Letter, is often considered the first American psychological novel.
Romanele şi povestirile sale sunt patrunse de conflicte morale şi spirituale, şi capodopera sa, Litera Stacojie, este adesea considerată primul roman psihologic american.
Hawthorne also helped to establish the American short story as a significant art form with his haunting tales of human loneliness, frustration, hypocrisy, eccentricity, and frailty.
Hawthorne a contribuit de asemenea la dezvoltarea nuvelei americane ca unei forme de artă semnificative, scriind povestiri psihologice despre singurătatea umană, frustrare, ipocrizie, ecscentrism şi fragilitate.



Question: What future US president did Hawthorne befriend in college?

Hawthorne attended Bowdoin College from 1821 to 1825, befriending classmate future president Franklin Pierce.
In 1852, he wrote the campaign biography of his old friend Franklin Pierce.
With Pierce’s election as President, Hawthorne was rewarded in 1853 with the position of United States consul in Liverpool.
