  • "In a sleepy little New England village stands a dark, weather-beaten, many-gabled house. This brooding mansion is haunted by a centuries-old curse that casts the shadow of ancestral sin upon the last four members of the distinctive Pyncheon family of Salem. The greed and haughty pride of the Pyncheon family through the generations is mirrored in the gloomy decay of their seven-gabled mansion, where the family's enfeebled and impoverished relations now live. Mysterious deaths threaten the living. Musty documents nestle behind hidden panels carrying the secret of the family's salvation--or its downfall. A brilliant intertwining of the popular, the symbolic, and the historical, Hawthorne's gothic romance is a powerful exploration of personal and national guilt, a work that Henry James declared "the closest approach we are likely to have to the Great American Novel.""@en
  • "A mysterious New England house, built on the scene of a wizard's hanging, seems to bring about an unusual number of unexplained deaths in the family who owns it."

  • "In the House of the Seven Gables, Nathanial Hawthorne explores themes of guilt, retribution, and atonement in a New England family and colors the tale with suggestions of the supernatural and witchcraft. An evil house, cursed through the centuries by a man who was hanged for witchcraft, is haunted by the ghosts of its sinful dead and wracked by the fear of its frightened living..."

  • "These words, from Nathaniel Hawthorne's notebook, neatly encapsulate the theme of "The house of the seven gables"--That a family whose fortunes are poisoned by its past misdeeds. The sins of the Pyncheon father are visited upon his children over a period of several generations, until such time as one of his descendants unites with a member of the family he has wronged. Love conquers hate, and new blood washes away the original crime. This intriguing and insightful novel truly deserves its significant place in the canon of American literature."@en
  • "The curse of Mathew Maule descends on seven generations of the inhabitants of an old New England house."@en
  • "In the mid 1800s, Pyncheon is still a revered namesake in Salem, with the gloomy Pyncheon mansion serving as a stark reminder of the family's upper class history. However, the house, unique for its seven gables, has a dark and deadly past. Its current occupant, the older and unmarried Hepzibah Pyncheon, is all but destitute and unwilling to accept any assistance from her wealthy but unrelenting cousin, Judge Jaffrey Pyncheon."@en
  • "When it was first erected, the House of Seven Gables typified the mechanical Colonel Pyncheon; but it developed through the years until, by Hepzibah's time, it has become humanized and almost organic. The history of the house is thus a record of continuity and change. Hawthorne's "The House of the Seven Gables" is a study of guilt and renewal from generation to generation. At the time of the Salem witch trials, the patriarch of the Pyncheons covets the property of a tradesman and manipulates public opinion so as to get Matthew Maule hanged for witchcraft and acquire the land. The dying man's curse on the Pyncheon family comes true generation upon generation and relationships between the families are colored forever by this "original sin." That is, until six generations later when the long-hidden truth is revealed."@en
  • "The great seven-gabled Pyncheon house is blighted by a curse given when old Colonel Pyncheon of early Salem obtained the property by convicting the rightful owner of witchcraft."@en
  • "In this classic tale of life in Salem, the nineteenth century generation living in a great house is burdened by a curse inherited from an ancestor."
  • "A victim of Salem's witchcraft hysteria curses the House of the Seven Gables."@en
  • "Nathaniel Hawthorne's The house of the seven gables is dramatized as a story about the effects of the past upon the present, of retribution and reconciliation, with Colonel Pyncheon and the Maul family as protagonists."@en
  • "The Pyncheons, having lived for generations under the curse of a supposed witch who once occupied the land on which the family mansion was built, gain a new lease on life with the arrival of young Phoebe Pyncheon from the country."

  • "The House of Seven Gables, a fixture in Hawthorne's Salem, serves as the ancestral home of the fictional Pyncheon family--whose distinguished legacy is tainted by pious thievery. When country cousin Phoebe arrives at the house, she is like a cool breeze, refreshing a room that has been sealed for too long."@en
  • "After a condemned man cursed Colonel Pyncheon from the scaffold during an execution for witchcraft, the Colonel's fate seemed to affect all of his descendants in the crumbling mansion until "young Phoebe Pyncheon from the country breathed fresh air and sunshine into the mouldering lives and rooms.""@en

Hawthorne call The house of the seven gables a "romance" drawing on the Gothic tradition of exploiting the supernatural. A powerful exploration of personal and national guilt, Henry James called this work "the closet approach we are likely to have to the Great American Novel.""@en
