Twice-Told Tales / 0-89577-332-5

I like Hawthorne well enough as a writer, and I love Hawthorne compared to his contemporaries, and this collection is a good example of his evolution as a writer. There are a lot of classics here, including "The Minister's Black Veil" and "Lady Eleanor's Mantle". This collection includes:

The Minister's Black Veil
The Maypole of Merry Mount
The Gentle Boy
Mr. Higginbotham's Catastrophe
The Great Carbuncle
The Prophetic Pictures
David Swan
The Hollow of the Three Hills
Fancy's Show Box
Dr. Heidegger's Experiment
Howe's Masquerade
Edward Randolph's Portrait
Lady Eleanor's Mantle
Old Esther DUdley
The Village Uncle
The Wedding Knell
The Ambitious Guest
The Sister Years
The White Old Maid
The Seven Vagabonds
Peter Goldthwaite's Treasure
Chippings with a Chisel
The Shaker Bridal
Endicott and the Red Cross
