How Nathaniel Hawthorne's Narratives Are Shaped by Sin

His Use of Biblical Typology in His Four Major Works

eBook - 2008
Rate this:
This work examines the influence of Puritan thought and typology and the persecutorial actions of the ancestors of Nathanial Hawthorne on his literature. Typological allusions and typological layering, in which fictional characters are portrayed as recurrent types found throughout the Bible, myth, and history, require readers to perform an hermeneutical exercise of interpretation in order to gain insight into the nature of sin.
