About the author (2007)

Born in 1804, Nathaniel Hawthorne is known for his historical tales and novels about American colonial society. After publishing "The Scarlet Letter" in 1850, its status as an instant bestseller allowed him to earn a living as a novelist.

He has earned a place in history as one of the most distinguished American writers of the nineteenth century.
