Abstract
  • "In his style Hawthorne early developed that maturity of dignified composure, free from constraint or affectation, and that lucid expression, which are among its most characteristic traits. With little faculties for the harmony of verse he had a singular command over the musical qualities of prose, enabling him to produce periods remarkable for their sonorous richness and delicate cadences, that sometimes raised them almost to the plane of poetry, yet never destroyed their character as prose by interjecting the actual rhythmic movement of verse. Although exceptionally fitted far conveying subtleties of thought and fantasy, his style is equally adapted to the comprehension of children, being invariably clear, and, strongly marked by common sense. Another noticeable peculiarity is that, in the entire range of his writings, quotation is airiest never resorted to; the author's mind being apparently so self-centered that its originality felt no need of aid or illustration from other writers. The superlative merits of Hawthorne's style were but slowly recognized in his own country; but his fame has rapidly and steadily increased since his death. Several of his works have been translated into foreign languages; and he is now generally esteemed as one of the greatest imaginative minds of the country, holding a place in the first rank among masters of modern English prose."--Conclusion
