Hawthorne's ability to express himself so very well in our language is a delight to read. I recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
“A preternatural horror” was born when Mr. Hooper effortlessly placed a black veil over his face and created a frenzy in an entire town (Hawthorne 6). In the twisted short story, “The Minister’s Black Veil,” Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays the idea of American Romanticism through a man’s, Mr. Hooper’s, fascination with proving a point to society. Mr. Hooper struggles with loneliness, fear, and sacrifices while achieving his mission. The story begins with the minister Mr. Hooper wearing a black veil as he walks to church. This unusual addition startles the people. He proceeds with an efficient, yet mysterious, sermon as the people quietly mumble in the pews below him. The day passes with much discussion as to the reason for the veil. It continues during a funeral and a wedding later that day. The only reasonable theory is that it is for the funeral. By the end of the story, the people come to realize that the veil is much more than a costume for a ceremony.

I feel heartbroken for Mr. Hooper who doesn’t mean to frighten the people of the village. It is an accident that he ends up shunning civilization and society. His lover, Elizabeth, wants to know the truth behind his madness, but Mr. Hooper won’t allow the truth to escape. Mr. Hooper says to Elizabeth, “…this veil is a type and a symbol, and I am bound to wear it ever, both in light and darkness…No mortal eye will see it withdrawn…even you, Elizabeth,” (Hawthorne 5). He would not tell her the reason for the veil even though it caused Elizabeth to leave him. Mr. Hooper may have not intended to push his woman and others away; he believed that wearing the veil was the right thing to do. He wanted to test the villagers to see if they would accept him if they thought he had sinned.

Engagingly written stories---many of which you probably know already from fairy tales and mythology, but told so well that you enjoy reading them again---or reading them aloud to someone else. Highly recommended.

I haven't read these in many years, Am preparing myself for granddaughter's education when they get old enough to appreciate them. This is good clean scan. Have not seen the errors that frequent some of the other ebook versions.
