Summary
Literary criticism and interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's work: The House of the Seven Gables. "The four Pyncheons live inside the blighted house: Hepzibah, an elderly recluse, Clifford, her feeble-minded brother, Phoebe, their young country cousin...and Jaffrey, a devil incarnate whose greedy quest for secret wealth is marked by murder and terrible vengeance from a restless grave."

Summary
The sins of the Pyncheon father are visited upon his children over a period of several generations, until such time as one of his descendants unites with a member of the family he has wronged. Love conquers hate, and new blood washes away the original crime. This intriguing and insightful novel truly deserves its significant place in the canon of American literature
