A Study Of Hawthorne, by George Parsons Lathrop3  POINT OF VIEW.This book was not designed as a biography, but is rather a portrait. And, tospeak more carefully still, it is not so much this, as my conception of what aportrait of Hawthorne should be. For I cannot write with the authority of one who had known him and had been formally intrusted with the task of describing his life. On the other hand, I do not enter upon this attempt as amere literary performance, but have been assisted in it by an inwardimpulse, a consciousness of sympathy with the subject, which I mayperhaps consider a sort of inspiration. My guide has been intuition,confirmed and seldom confuted by research. Perhaps it is even a favoringfact that I should never have seen Mr. Hawthorne; a personality so elusiveas his may possibly yield its traits more readily to one who can neverobtrude actual intercourse between himself and the mind he is meditatingupon. An honest report upon personal contact always has a value denied tothe reviews of after- comers, yet the best criticism and biography is notalways that of contemporaries.Our first studies will have a biographical scope, because a certain groupingof facts is essential, to give point to the view which I am endeavoring topresent; and as Hawthorne's early life has hitherto been but little explored,much of the material used in the earlier chapters is now for the first timemade public. The latter portion of the career may be treated more sketchily,being already better known; though passages will be found throughout theessay which have been developed with some fulness, in order to maintain acorrect atmosphere, compensating any errors which mere opinions mightlead to. Special emphasis, then, must not be held to show neglect of pointswhich my space and scope prevent my commenting on. But the first outlinerequiring our attention involves a distant retrospect.The history of Hawthorne's genius is in some sense a summary of all NewEngland history.From amid a simple, practical, energetic community, remarkable for itsactivity in affairs of state and religion, but by no means given to dreaming,this fair flower of American genius rose up unexpectedly enough, breaking A Study Of Hawthorne, by George Parsons Lathrop4
