  • "Novel with an Italian setting whose moral allegory continues to interest students of Hawthorne's thought."@en
  • "In Hawthorne's masterpiece, four protagonists find themselves in the corrupted setting of Italy--a place where their faith, love, and innocence are challenged. A Puritan American, Hilda, is admired by Kenyon, an American sculptor. While not far away, Donatello follows a young woman, Miriam, into her dark ways. The Marble Faun leaves the reader with more questions than answers."@en
  • ""Set in Rome, Hawthorne's tale of the influence of European culture on American morality echoes 'The Scarlet Letter' in its concern with the nature of transgression and guilt.""
  • "Philosophical novel asks if sin is merely an element of human education. A tale of tragedy and mystery in an Italian setting, first published in 1860."@en
  • "Nathaniel Hawthorne's romance concerns a group of American expatriates in mid-nineteenth century Italy, and their tragic encounter with the faun-like Italian count, Donatello. It is both a murder story and a parable of the Fall of Man, dominated by the fragility and durability of human life and art. - ;'any narrative of human action and adventure - whether we call it history or Romance - is certain to be a fragile handiwork, more easily rent than mended'The fragility - and the durability - of human life and art dominate this story of American expatriates in Italy in the mid-nineteenth century."@en
  • "The last of Hawthorne's completed romances showcases the durability of life and art, chronicling the adventures of a group of American expatriates in Italy. Befriended by the handsome Donatello, who possesses all the grace of a marble statue of a faun, the Americans find themselves swept up in events beyond their reason and expectations. Italy and Rone become characters in this witty and symbolic romance, drawing on art, literature, and the Fall from Grace as its themes."@en
  • "Befriended by Donatello, a young Italian with the classical grace of the 'Marble Faun', Miriam, Hilda, and Kenyon, three American expatriates, find their pursuit of art taking a sinister turn as Miriam's unhappy past threatens to lead them into tragedy."

Befriended by Donatello, a young Italian with the classical grace of the 'Marble Faun', Miriam, Hilda, and Kenyon find their pursuit of art taking a sinister turn as Miriam's unhappy past precipitates the present into tragedy. Hawthorne's 'International Novel' dramatizes the confrontation of the Old World and the New and the uncertain relationship between the 'authentic' and the 'fake', in life as in art. The author's evocative descriptions of classic sites made The Marble Faun a favourite guidebook to Rome for Victorian tourists, but this richly ambiguous symbolic romance is also the story of a murder, and a parable of the Fall of Man. As the characters find their civilized existence disrupted by the awful consequences of impulse, Hawthorne leads his readers to question the value of Art and Culture and addresses the great evolutionary debate which was beginning to shake Victorian society."
  • "The fragility of human life and art dominate this story of American expatriates in Italy in the mid-19th century. Befriended by Donatello, a young Italian with the classical grace of the "Marble Faun", Miriam, Hilda, and Kenyon find their pursuit of art taking a sinister turn."
  • "Though Nathaniel Hawthorne is best remembered as the author of the quintessential American parable The Scarlet Letter, some of the New England writer's work was much less formal and traditional than that novel. In fact, some critics regard The Marble Faun, rife with impressionistic and fantastical elements, as downright experimental by comparison. It's a fascinating read that will please fans of Lovecraft and other uncanny horror."@en
