Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement
Nathaniel Hawthorne has typically been understood as an anti-Puritan. However, much of his work suggests that he was not rejecting Puritanism. Rather, Hawthorne was using narrative to deconstruct the doctrinal dichotomies of Puritanism and Unitarianism, which were prevalent during his lifetime.
