    Introduction to Hawthorne?

    I'm interested in Hawthorne's work, but don't know where to start, so I'm seeking advice here. Novels, short story collections, I'm not picky! That said, if at all possible I would like...

    I agree with most of this, but you have to keep in mind that religious beliefs often influence political beliefs. The battle we're having over the right to abortion and gay marriage (or gay soldiers...

    Religions, whether they speak of God or gods or whatever do generally have some rules involved, which is what constitutes a restriction; a religion isn't merely 'I believe in deity X, Y, Z' or 'I...

    Thank you.

    Faulkner strikes me as the kind of author whose influence is subtle and harder to detect than others. Whenever I take a crack at Kerouac my first thought is to wonder whether he ever...
