Seven Lectures at Seven Gables:
Michael and Elizabeth Judd
Hawthorne’s Children’s Stories

6-8PM
Members: FREE
Non-members: $7.00

When American readers think of Nathaniel Hawthorne, what comes to
mind are works like The House of the Seven Gables and The Scarlet
Letter. These serious novels are grounded in New England’s Puritan
past and are characterized by a dark, pessimistic view of human
nature. However, there is another side to his genius, a much more
lighthearted and positive Hawthorne, revealed in the creation of his
remarkable works for children. The most famous of these are his
re-tellings of classical Greek and Roman myths in A Wonder Book
for Girls and Boys and Tanglewood Tales. In these books he
pioneered a new type of children’s literature that embodied fresh ideas
about the nature of childhood and children, the education and pastimes
appropriate to them, and how they should be raised. Michael and
Elizabeth Judd will discuss the books and the familial, cultural, and
historical contexts that influenced their creation, in an illustrated lecture.
