Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) 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. Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, 1804, in Salem, Massachusetts, where his birthplace is now a museum. William Hathorne, who emigrated from England in 1630, was the first of Hawthorne's ancestors to arrive in the colonies. Hawthorne attended Bowdoin College at the expense of an uncle from 1821 to 1824, befriending classmates Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and future president Franklin Pierce. Hawthorne is best-known today for his many short stories (he called them "tales") and his four major romances written between 1850 and 1860: The Scarlet Letter (1850), The House of the Seven Gables (1851), The Blithedale Romance (1852) and The Marble Faun (1860). Another novel-length romance, Fanshawe was published anonymously in 1828. Hawthorne's work belongs to Romanticism, an artistic and intellectual movement characterized by an emphasis on individual freedom from social conventions or political restraints, on human imagination, and on nature in a typically idealized form.

It was not at all what I thought it was. I am not sure what it is supposed to be.

This thoroughly engaging and very human memoir of Hawthorne's days in England (and Scotland) during his time as American consul in Liverpool is one of those hidden gems of American literature that deserves to be far more widely known and read than it is. Hawthorne truly is one of America's great writers, and for those who only know his dark side (eg., "The Scarlet Letter" and "Goodman Brown"), this book will be a revelation. As we join Hawthorne on his leisurely ramble through the various corners of Britain (which, for Americans such as Hawthorne, was indeed "our old home"), he shares his many observations, insights and reflections, not only on the places and people he encounters along the way but on life in general. This is not a book to speed read; it is a book to savor, one page at a time. It contains more wisdom than many of the great works of philosophy and more gentle humor than you will find in all of our modern humorists combined, but it is Hawthorne's basic decency and humanity that is ultimately the book's greatest strength. When I finally read the last page (which, by the way, is hilarious), I felt as if I were taking leave of an old friend.
