Short

Richard Jacobson examines and delineates the processes of mind that Hawthorne conceived of as underlying the creative act. Taking issue with previous studies that have presented the novelist as an adherent of one or another of the particular schools of thought representative of his time, the author demonstrates that Hawthorne’s views were, in fact, eclectically formed and were a fusion of classical and romantic attitudes. His intense preoccupation with the relationship between art and morality, and the validation of imaginative insights are central elements, Jacobson maintains, in Hawthorne’s theory of the creative process.
