About the Author
Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1804. He was educated at the Bowdoin College in Maine (1821-25). Between the years 1825 and 1836, Hawthorne worked as a writer and contributor to periodicals. His first novel, Fanshawe, appeared anonymously, published at his own expense, in 1828. In 1842 he married Sophia Peabody, an active participant in the Transcendentalist movement. His marriage to Sophia provided the inspiration for the noble character of Hester Prynne. He died in 1864.
