Edgar Allan Poe was a great friend of Nathaniel Hawthorne. . New Answer: Well, Poe was not really a friend of Hawthorne. You might be thinking of Franklin Pierce, a college buddy and drinking partner, who had Hawthorne write a very flattering biography of him while he was running for President. Pie…rce was elected, some say primarily on the strength of Hawthorne's endorsement of him. Nate was a big literary star during the 1840s to 1860s, and his big boost to Franklin Pierce, an otherwise completely undistinguished politician, would be like having Tom Clancy recommend Dennis Kuchinich for President and write a book about him.

Throughout the novel, the Scarlet Letter , Hawthorne criticized the Puritans' moral upstanding. He criticized their moral upstanding because it was kind of messed up. They were expected to be 'perfect' and not sin; in reality, nobody can go without sinning their whole life-everybody sins at least o…nce in their life. However, Puritans were expected not to. If the Puritans were to sin, they would either get in trouble or live with the guilt of their sin eating them from the inside, out. The mess up part about their religion is that it lacked confession. So, if they were to have a big secret or sin, they would have to keep it to themselves. ~Tajza Hodges (MORE)
So you could get a life Ambitious Guest is the name of a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The theme of the story is the importance of getting out of your comfort zone and embracing a life of danger. Lots of people criticized it for being reckless. The theme or purpose is to convey the importance,… security and sanctity of the home, while warning of the perrils of ambition and of the desire for fame/immortality. When you look at the ambitious guest, he has traveled far and wide, but has done nothing, stayed in no place long enough to do anything, established no roots, ingratiated himself to no one, no community, no family, nothing. When the rockslide occurs, and both he and the family he was staying with perish, the family is at least remembered throughout the land in which the family resided, the ambitious guest is not. The theme is further emphasized by the fact that the family and guest left the home when they heard the slide, assuming it would be safer elsewhere. The house was untouched by the slide, strong enough to endure, whereas the family and guest outside the home perished. All the ambitions the family had dreamed up since the guest arrived required leaving their home, the one enduring thing in the family's life. ... (MORE)
