About the Book

Nathaniel Hawthorne, a writer from the United States, published The Blithedale Romance in 1852. It is the third significant "romance," as he described the genre. The setting is a utopian farming commune modeled after Brook Farm, where Hawthorne lived in 1841 and was a founder member. The clash between the principles of the commune and the members' personal desires and sexual rivalries is dramatized in the book. She promises Coverdale that she will finally get over it but that she has to leave Blithedale right away when she is feeling well. She wants Coverdale to tell Hollingsworth that he has "murdered" her and declares that she will become a nun. Coverdale dozes off under the rock when she departs. He goes to Hollingsworth's cottage when he wakes up at midnight and asks for help; when Silas Foster awakens, he is also asked to assist. Coverdale conveys his suspicion that Zenobia had committed herself by drowning after leading them to a familiar location by the river and considering her comments. Silas Foster notices that Hollingsworth physically injured her close to her heart when he hooked her body with a rod.

About Author

Nathaniel Hawthorne

American author Nathaniel Hawthorne (July 4, 1804, to May 19, 1864) wrote both novels and short stories. His works typically touch on history, religion, and morality. His family had a lengthy history in Salem, Massachusetts, where he was born in 1804. Hawthorne enrolled at Bowdoin College in 1821, was chosen for membership in Phi Beta Kappa in 1824, and received his diploma in 1825. Fanshawe, his debut novel, was published in 1828; he later tried to suppress it because he believed it fell short of the caliber of his later works. In magazines, he produced a number of short stories, which he later compiled as Twice-Told Tales in 1837. He proposed to Sophia Peabody the next year. Before getting married to Peabody in 1842, he joined the transcendentalist community of Brook Farm and worked at the Boston Custom House. The pair first settled in Concord, Massachusetts' The Old Manse before relocating to Salem, the Berkshires, and finally The Wayside. Following the release of The Scarlet Letter in 1850, a number of other novels followed. Prior to their 1860 return to Concord, Hawthorne and his family traveled to Europe as part of a political appointment as a consul. He passed away on May 19, 1864.
