Hawthorne’s stories hinge on a heavy use of allegory; they’re fable-like stories, moral stories, leaving it up to you (the reader) to interpret them, and they’re darkly seasoned with an overriding sense of guilt, dread, and sin. They often have a nightmarish quality about them, as he (indirectly) probes the dark depths of humanity. It’s a more sophisticated approach to horror, an oblique way to expose the horrible things we do, or are capable of doing. Personally, I leave his stories feeling very uncomfortable. I recommend these tales especially: “My Kinsman, Major Molinuex,” “Young Goodman Brown,” “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” and “The Minister’s Black Veil.”
