Nathaniel Hawthorne

Synopsis
Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in the New England seaport of Salem, Massachusetts. Steeped in the history of his Puritan forebears and at the same time a part of the astonishing development of the new American society, Hawthorne reflected powerfully in his novels the divisions and contradictions which drove the world about him and gave it its strength. The programme examines his life and ends with a summary of his work.
