Publisher's Description

"Whatever Nathaniel Hawthorne may hereafter write, Mosses from an Old Manse will ultimately be accounted his masterpiece." —Herman Melville
 
Aylmer is an inventor, the greatest of his age. But his heart is torn between his devotion to science and his love for his beautiful wife, Georgiana, whose appearance would be perfect were it not for the small red birthmark on her cheek. Unnaturally obsessed with the blemish, Aylmer sets out to erase it from his beloved’s face—and discovers that his heedless quest to master Nature has disastrous consequences.
 
A Gothic romance both chilling and tragic, "The Birthmark" is just one of the masterworks of short fiction in this classic collection, which also includes "Young Goodman Brown," "Rappaccini’s Daughter," and the pioneering work of alternative history, "P.’s Correspondence." First published in 1846, Mosses from an Old Manse reveals Nathaniel Hawthorne to be a visionary far ahead of his time, and one of the most haunting voices in American literature.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Nathaniel Hawthorne
"The element of simple genius, the quality of imagination. This is the real charm of Hawthorne’s writing—this purity and spontaneity and naturalness of fancy." —Henry James
 
 "The heritage of American weirdness was [Hawthorne’s] to a most intense degree. . . . He saw a dismal throng of vague specters behind the common phenomena of life." —H. P. Lovecraft
