Publisher Description

The House of the Seven Gables is a Gothic novel written in 1851 by American author Nathaniel Hawthorne and published the same year by Ticknor and Fields of Boston. Hawthorne explores themes of guilt, retribution, and atonement in a New England family and colors the tale with suggestions of the supernatural and witchcraft. The story was inspired by a gabled house in Salem belonging to Hawthorne's cousin Susanna Ingersoll and by those of Hawthorne's ancestors who played a part in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. The book was well received upon publication and later had a strong influence on the work of H. P. Lovecraft. The House of the Seven Gables has been adapted several times to film and television.

House of Seven Gables

I think this novel goes under the category of gothic fiction, however, I found it very hard to classify it as that. It’s good, requires some focuse when read and has pretty entertianing parts that made me giggle (not sure if it was the author’s intention)… The chickens stole the show.
