Description
Hawthorne's tale about the brooding hold of the past over the present is a complex one, twisting and turning its way back through many generations of a venerable New England family, one of whose members was accused of witchcraft in 17th century Salem. More than 200 years later, we meet the family in its decaying, gabled mansion, still haunted by the presence of dead ancestors: Hepzibah, an elderly gentlewoman fallen on had times; her ineffectual brother, Clifford; and young Phoebe, a country maiden who cheerfully takes it upon herself to care for her two doddering relations.

Berneis, Susie.
In a sleepy little New England village stands a dark, weather-beaten, many-gabled house. This brooding mansion is haunted by a centuries-old curse that casts the shadow of ancestral sin upon the last four members of the distinctive Pyncheon family. Mysterious deaths threaten the living. Musty documents nestle behind hidden panels carrying the secret of the family’s salvation—or its downfall. Hawthorne called The House of the Seven Gables “a Romance,” and freely bestowed upon it many fascinating gothic touches. A brilliant intertwining of the popular, the symbolic, and the historical, the novel is a powerful exploration of personal and national guilt, a work that Henry James declared “the closest approach we are likely to have to the Great American Novel.”

Two hundred years ago, their ancestor seized the property from a man sentenced to death for practicing witchcraft. At his execution, the man placed a curse on the Pyncheons, and the family has been plagued by tragedy ever since.   Enlivened by the arrival of Phoebe, a pretty young relative who begins a tentative romance with Holgrave, their mysterious attic lodger, Hepzibah and Clifford hope that the curse has finally lifted. But before a new day can dawn, they must first contend with Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon, whose greed and treachery threaten to doom the family forevermore.   Inspired by the role his ancestors played in the Salem witch trials, Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote The House of the Seven Gables to explore the complicated legacy of the Puritans. First published in 1851, his savage indictment of the darkness at the heart of the American dream is more powerful than ever.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.  , Berneis, Susie., Brothers and sisters, Centenary ed. of The Works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Children, Conduct of life, Cousins, Davenport, Basil,1905-1966.|Author of introduction, etc., Digital content provided by hoopla., Domestic fiction., Electronic books., FIC HAWTHORN, FIC004000, FICTION / Classics, Families, Feedbooks1851, FicH, General Fiction, General Fiction; Literary, Ghost stories., Great illustrated classics, Great illustrated classics., Haunted houses, Haunted houses -- Fiction., Hawthorne's tale about the brooding hold of the past over the present is a complex one, twisting and turning its way back through many generations of a venerable New England family, one of whose members was accused of witchcraft in 17th century Salem.

However, the house, unique for its seven gables, has a dark and deadly past. Its current occupant, the older and unmarried Hepzibah Pyncheon, is all but destitute and unwilling to accept any assistance from her wealthy but unrelenting cousin, Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon., Includes bibliographical references (p. xxxv-xxxvii)., Interpersonal conflict, Literary, MWT11078117, MWT11273085, Made available through hoopla, Massachusetts, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Murderers, New York :Penguin Books,1981., Occult fiction, Occult fiction., Open Road Media2016, PS1861.A2S76 1981b, Penguin classics, Penguin classics., Poor, old Hepzibah Pyncheon and her brother Clifford have nowhere to live but in the family's decaying mansion, which once was cursed.

It is the story of a curse. Moreover, it is based on the tradition of a curse pronounced on author's own family. In mid-19th century Salem, Massachusetts, Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon is determined to find the property deeds of his rich uncle, seemingly murdered by his cousin Clifford. His machinations and their effect on the rest of the family, together with the consequences of past misdeeds that come back to haunt the action, make this great novel comparable to The Scarlet Letter. , hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/dsa_9781629233536_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/lpg_9781467775526_180.jpeg, n-us-ma, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt, xl, 326 p. ;20 cm.
