Family History His great-great- grandfather, William Hathorne, ordered the whipping 5 people in the streets of Salem. His great-grandfather, John Hathorne, was the magistrate presiding over the trial of the accused witches of Salem (1692). Added the “w” to his name
Influences His early childhood in Salem and work in the Salem Custom House. Puritan Heritage He believed in the existence of the devil. He believed in determinism, a theory of predestination
Important Works The Minister’s Black Veil (1836) and Young Goodman Brown (1846) The Scarlet Letter (1850) Inspired by a scarlet ‘A’ he found in his mom’s house Became one of the first mass-produced books in the US.

Thematic Elements Good vs. Evil Puritan Hypocrisy Family Shame Moral Judgment Sin and Repentance The dark side of human nature Crime and Punishment Spirits and the supernatural Personification of the Devil
Inspiration Just another form of Romanticism Opposed the optimistic view of life the Transc. Felt that spiritual facts lie in the appearance of nature BUT that these are not necessarily good or harmless. Although they had opposing views, some Transcendentalist and Dark Romanticists were good friends (Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne) Essentially, take Romanticism and make it less inspirational and more demented.
Elements of Dark Romanticism Wanted to explore the psychological wanderings of the human mind Revealed the darkness in human nature Explored conflict between good and evil The psychological effects of guilt and sin Used characters who personified the devil, as opposed to characters who were the devil Also known as Gothic Literature Criticized society
Famous Writers Edgar Allan Poe The Raven Fall of the House of Usher (YEAH!) Wrote dark, Gothic stories and poems. Pretty twisted dude. Hated Transcendentalist more than other dark romantic writers Influenced by Washington Irving

Annotation Tips/Strategies: Make brief notes to mark important plot events. Use check marks, asterisks (*), stars, arrow, etc. to mark important items or details. Circle or highlight words that are unfamiliar and define them. Highlight phrases that describe or characterize important characters. Highlight words, images, and details that seem to form a pattern throughout the text. These patterns usually lead to theme. Mark passages that you think might be symbolic. Highlight the use of figurative language. If you get an idea, write it down. It could be good starting point for discussion. DON’T mark everything! If you mark too much, nothing will stand out and you’ll just be re-reading again.
