Biographies and Portraits

As one of America’s must famous authors, numerous biographies of Nathaniel Hawthorne have been published over the past two centuries. These range from the accounts of friends to research written well after his death. Each work offers new insight into Hawthorne’s life and legacy.

Our biography collection spans decades of work and contains several out-of-print books and rare copies.
