The House of Seven Gables

Lovers of gothic horror stories would be remiss in passing by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of the Seven Gables, whose titular setting is based upon a real house in Salem. The novel contains traces of Hawthorne’s own family history, of which he felt deep shame and remorse for their part in the Salem Witch Hunt of the late 17th century. A dark and unjust past informs of the plot of this sometimes-ghost story, and Hawthorne masterfully brings about a redemptive ending which is, for a novel as foreboding and sinister as this, quite happy.
