About this product
- DescriptionThis booktakes issue with the tendency in twentieth-century Hawthorne-criticism to blur the distinction between symbolism and allegory. Rejecting the long-standing tion that Hawthorne is a symbolist in allegorical disguise, Ullen argues that allegory is the key to understanding how religion, sexuality, aesthetics and politics are interwoven in Hawthorne s writings. The study presents a model for allegorical interpretation of general applicability, which is brought to bear on each of Hawthorne s mature romances, and on the oft-neglected Wonder Books written for children. An unparalleled analysis of the formal intricacies of Hawthorne s writings, this book is an eloquent plea for the necessity of grounding ideological analysis in aesthetical considerations.
