David Diamond lecture: “Nathaniel Hawthorne”
June 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In commemorating the 150th anniversary of the death of novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne, we examine a different part of his writings. Hawthorne’s tales and romances exert intense psychological force. Driven by desire, Hawthorne’s characters face painful conflicts with each other, their community and an inescapable conscience. Their troubled past is always threatening to overtake them. Anticipating Freud by a half a century, Hawthorne exposes the intricate workings of the haunted mind.
