Nathaniel Hawthorne (born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer.

His most famous novel, The Scarlet Letter, was published in 1850. Much of Hawthorne's writing centers around his home state of Massachusetts, and many feature moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration.

Nathaniel Hawthorne in Atlantis[]

Young Mr. Hawthorne of Atlantis.

Mr. Hawthorne was a 19th century Atlantean novelist. In 1843, he completed a work that he believed would be the great Atlantean novel. His publisher, Gordon Coates, agreed that the work was good, but changed his title The Shores of a Different Sea to the more exciting The Crimson Brand.[1]
