The illustrious Pyncheon family had uite a useful reign but that was long ago its founder ColPyncheon a stout merciless Puritan and able soldier helped wipe out the scourge the evil threat of the abominable witches in the honorable Salem trials of 1692 For his just reward he happened by pure accident to take over the property of old Matthew Maule Still a splendid beautiful area the perfect place to set his building the magnificent Seven Gablesthe Colonel s new mansion for his noble effortsThe wicked Wizard Maule met his proper end at Gallows Hill Things do not stay the same unfortunately the family and House of the Seven Gables have seen better days In fact truthfully at one time few would argue against it being ranked among the best edifices in colonial Massachusetts That was than 150 years ago this building shall we reiterate is a little run down a dump in reality Hepzibah Pyncheon an old maid with nevertheless a wonderful name is now all alone the only exception a young boarder MrHolgrave A daguerreotypist as a resident the poor Hepzibah has to open a cent store also to make a living what a humiliating situation for an upper class woman from a formerly prominent family Also visiting a relative Phoebe Pyncheon a penniless country cousin with all that implies the girl has no idea why the brother of Miss Pyncheon Clifford returns home after 30 years was it for some crime Nobody is talking and the 17 year old girl doesn t ask too many uestions she is a guest after all and very grateful Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon a rich distinguished man once a member of Congress and his son traveling around Europe somewhere are the last male Pyncheons not counting the unfortunate and sick Clifford nobody does People stay away from the strange house rumors about ghosts and unexplained deaths are a constant source of gossip for the dull town The bored Clifford likes to blow soap bubbles from the second story of the mansion one hits his haughty cousin the distinguished gentleman on the noseThe prosperous relative now has an excuse to visit wanting to talk to Clifford about a vague proposition but the nervous ex inmate blames the aloof magistrate for his troubles refuses A dark strange thick atmosphere engulfs the premises the ancient crumbling House of the Seven Gables will some sunshine ever brighten it A classic novel not as exciting as when it was first published yet worth reading still Over a century and a half after being first written many events have shocked the world making this rather mild in comparison Did Hawthorne s author of The Scarlet Letter a monumental work evil ancestors involvement in the notorious Salem kangaroo trials gullible adults fooled by emotional delusional bad children with no consciousDid these killings of innocent people haunt the great author

The House of the Seven Gables Free read ✓ 6 Free download ¹ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ã Nathaniel Hawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorne ã 6 Summary Try breathes new air into mouldering lives and rooms Written shortly after The Scarlet Letter The House of the Seven Gables re addres. This narrative published in 1850 starts with a preface by Hawthone explaining his concept of the Romance which is to be distinguished from the Novel because it provides the writer with greater latitude to takes risks The Novel is somehow straightforward conservative less flexible as a vehicle for experimentationThe first chapter gives us the backstory in a kind of lump sum Most contemporary novelists probably write such a backstory but often cut it since lacking action and character it can seem too schematic and impersonal Hawthorne s backstory is perhaps no exception But it has the virtue of being 160 years old and that combined with its antiuated vocabulary deftly wielded combines to hook the reader The backstory spills all the beans of this fantastic narrative including the heinous crime the resulting curse the astonishing event at the housewarming and the collective guilt that is said to course through each suceeding generation of the Pyncheon familyWhen we reach the action of the present day it s a particularly low moment in the Pyncheon family s fortunes Hepzibah the permanently scowling seemingly sole survivor of the line is forced to open what was at the time known as a cent shop in a corner of the grand though decaying house There s nerve wracking suspense here Hawthorne seems to wring it from every word His mode of storytelling is simultaneously achingly and beautifully slow There s one scene for example in which he lingers over a simple breakfast Each item seems lovingly revealed there s a sumptuousness to the language that seems to belie the meal s simplicity The gaze throughout smacks of the voyeuristic as if the dead who are no longer permitted such pleasures were narratingThe narrative is marked by a number of oppositions in terms of imagery gloom and sunshine animal and spiritual age and youth ugliness and beauty exhaustion and vitality Clifford embodies many of these He is put forth as the spoiled and decadent figure and symbol of the family s fortunes He is obviously homosexual something Hawthorne working in the era he did could only vaguely touch upon Yet in the end he is mindful enough to turn this clich on its head For Clifford it turns out is not the symbol of the decaying family but an individual just one from whose shoulders at the end of the book all unfair connotation seems justly liftedClifford has an artist s sensibility without the artistry He is a dilettante The Daguerrotypist who lives beneath one of the House s gables is referred to as the artist The contrast is intentional The fellow with the so called artistic sensibilities is not an artist at all but one who makes his living from a simple mechanical process Clifford by contrast lives for beauty It infuses his every happy moment Without it he is corpse like almost inert

Nathaniel Hawthorne ã 6 Summary

The House of the Seven Gables Free read ✓ 6 Free download ¹ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ã Nathaniel Hawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorne ã 6 Summary Ses the theme of human guilt in a style remarkable in both its descriptive virtuosity and its truly modern mix of fantasy and realism. A clueless group here in goodreadscom made this this its book of the month read under the Horror genre when there is no horror in it The author called it instead a Romance but there is no romance in it either except a brief declaration of love for each other of two protagonists towards the end with all its unmistakable phoniness How can you love a simple girl like me Duh all men profess to love simple girlsThis is actually a sex book written under the atmosphere of sexual repression during the mid 19th centuryThere is this big old house with seven gables of course which has a dark past that can be traced back to a hundred or so years Displayed inside is a portrait of the house s builder and original owner Colonel Pyncheon Its present occupants are a brother and a sister both Pyncheons too descendants of the Colonel both decrepit and poor The brother Clifford had apparently lost his marbles and acts at times like a childThey have a border occupying one of the house s seven gables a young good looking artist Later comes for a visit and she eventually became a occupant another Pyncheon a cousin of the brother and sister She s young and pretty And what would a story be without a villain So we have Judge Pyncheon another cousin rich powerful and a look alike of Colonel Pyncheon in the portrait and said to be as evil as the originalEverything needed for gothic sex is here a big old gloomy housewhich in the dictionary can mean a brothel reminiscent of the castle in Maruis de Sade s 120 Days of Sodom an unattractive sex starved character the sister a spinster with a permanent scowl on her face and with a sado masochistic name Hepzibah one with an infantile taste for sex the brother named Clifford off in the head the stud the artistborder Holgrave a permanent fixture in all porn films a nubile object of delectation and ready for corruption the young lady from the country who first came for a visit and with the eually nubile name Phoebe and a villain Judge PyncheonThe first sex scene symbolically only remember this was in the 19th century when the Philippines was still firmly under Spanish rule is where Hepzibah opened up her small store to earn her upkeep like she is opening her legs for the first time in her life after she is forced to earn money by prostitution Her first customer is the studartist He asks her if he can assist her any further in her preparation When Hepzibah saw the young man s smile looking so much the brighter on a thoughtful face and heard his kindly tone she broke first into a hysteric giggle and then began to sob Ah Mr Holgrave cried she as soon as she could speak I never can go through with it Never never never I wish I were dead and in the old family tomb with all my forefathers With my father and my mother and my sister Yes and with my brother who had far better find me there than here The world is too chill and hard and I am too old and too feeble and too hopeless The stud Holgrave however gives her words of encouragement Oh believe me Miss Hepzibah these feelings will not trouble you any longer after you are once fairly in the midst of your enterprise They are unavoidable at this moment standing as you do on the outer verge of your long seclusion and peopling the world with ugly shapes which you will soon find to be as unreal as the giants and ogres of a child s storybook I find nothing so singular in life as that everything appears to lose its substance the instant one actually grapples with it So it will be with what you think so terrible The exchange then continues But I am a woman said Hepzibah piteously I was going to say a lady but I consider that as past Well no matter if it be past answered the artist a strange gleam of half hidden sarcasm flashing through the kindliness of his manner Let it go You are the better without it For Clifford the retard nothing is beautiful than Phoebe He took unfailing note of every charm that appertained to her sex and saw the ripeness of her lips and the virginal development of her bosomBut since he is such a child all he can do is to touch her flower and smell it His feeling for flowers was very exuisite and seemed not so much a taste as an emotion he was fond of sitting with one in his hand intently observing it and looking from its petals into Phoebe s face as if the garden flower were the sister of the household maiden Not merely was there a delight in the flower s perfume or pleasure in its beautiful form and the delicacy or brightness of his hueWith Phoebe by his side his little weapon comes alive now with the lesson thoroughly by heart he could with difficulty comprehend his little airy happiness Freuently there was a dim shadow of doubt in his eyes Take my hand Phoebe he would say and pinch it hard with your little fingers Give me a rose that I may press it thorns and prove myself awake by the sharp touch of pain Evidently he desired this PRICK of a trifling anguishWhat about the villain Judge Pyncheon Here he is compared with the long dead Colonel Pyncheon and the clear implication is that both were as debauch and cruel as any of Maruis de Sade s sick heroesThe Puritan Colonel Pyncheon again an autocrat in his own household had worn out three wives and merely by remorseless weight and hardness of his character in the conjugal relation had sent them one after another brokenhearted to their graves The Judge had wedded but a single wife and lost her in the third or fourth year of their marriage There was a fable however for such we choose to consider it though not impossibly typical of Judge Pynchon s marital deportment that the lady got her death blow in the honeymoon and never smiled again because her husband compelled her to serve him with coffee every morning at his bedside in token of fealty to her liege lord and masterWhat is this what is this serving him WITH coffee every morning at his bedside like he was her liege lord and master and which was so gross as to be the euivalent of a DEATH BLOW My lascivious readers your guess is absolutely correct What could be debasing than forcing your wife to give you a blowjob in the morning while she drinks her coffee
