Hawthorne's famous novel. In the final years of the seventeenth century in a small New England town, the venerable Colonel Pyncheon decides to erect a ponderously oak-framed and spacious family mansion. It occupies the spot where Matthew Maule, "an obscure man," had lived in a log hut until his execution for witchcraft. From the scafford, Maule points his finger at the Colonel and cries, "God will give him blood to drink!" The Colonel's fate exerts a heavy influence on his descendants in the crumbling mansion for the next century and a half.
Oxford World's Classics, 2009. Paperback, 319 pp.
