    • Twice Told Tales is a two-volume collection of thirty-nine Hawthorne’s pieces, consisting of short fiction, allegories and narrative essays. Originally issued in 1837 and 1841 (nine years before the publication of his "breakout" work The Scarlet Letter), these volumes take their name from the fact that all the tales contained herein are “twice-told” in the sense that each had been published before, almost all anonymously, in journals of the time (many in The Token and Atlantic Souvenir.Alt [...]

    • "Es la negrura en Hawthorne lo que tanto me atrae y me fascina. Los grandes genios son parte de los tiempos" - Herman Melville"Los rasgos distintivos de Hawthorne son la invención, la creación, la imaginación y la originalidad y Hawthorne es original en todos los sentidos. Resultaría difícil señalar el mejor de todos estos cuentos; repetimos que son bellos sin excepción." - Edgar Allan Poe "El hombre de letras más oscuro de América". Esta es la descripción más exacta que uno pueda enc [...]

    • Hawthorne has always freaked me out a bit. I say that with respect, but he and Washington Irving remind me of chilly October nights, full moons, rustling leaves, and scarecrows. In other words, New England. In this collection of tales, Hawthorne lures the reader in with parables of good versus, well you know what. Very Puritan-ish.It was old Esther Dudley, who had dwelt almost immemorial years in this mansion, until her presence seemed as inseparable from it as the recollections of its history.T [...]

    • I remember adoring Hawthorne in my graduate school days - especially The House of the Seven Gables - so I decided to revisit the author and read this collection of his short stories and essays, Twice Told Tales. It is November, and I think Hawthorne is best read in the fall, for there is something autumnal in his romantic musings.There are 36 stories in this collection, ranging from fiction to what I would call short essays, since they express the author's reflections on an observation, be it a [...]

    • Hablar de Nathaniel Hawthorne es hablar de los orígenes mismos de la literatura estadounidense. Nuestro autor nació en Nueva Inglaterra cinco años antes que Edgar Allan Poe y treinta y un años antes que Mark Twain. Su literatura es por tanto, fundadora de una escuela nacional que culmina un siglo después con los maestros del gótico sureño. Una frase de Shakespeare dice: "La vida es tan tediosa como un cuento contado dos veces" y de ahi proviene el irónico titulo de esta colección de rel [...]


    • As precious a book to me as there is. Each story gently folds back layer by layer revealing a hidden truth or fear or hope or love at it's heart. Though written in the early 1800's, the sense and perspective is not strictly masculine. Hawthorne inhabits and coveys both genders with equal delicacy and strength. Can be read as simple entertainment or left on the tounge to discern deeper flavors than readily apparent. Such a master of the short story form that to write anything longer seems a waste [...]

    • Hawthorne is a master storyteller and excells in the short story form, much like Poe. In fact, Poe fans would appreciate Hawthorne's stories more than other folks due to their similarities. Poe, as a critic, despised most literature he reviewed, but was a fan of Hawthorne because of the way he used words. As Poe stated in his literary theory, he believed every word in a story is important because each word should move the story forward. Hawthorne's works do just that, especially the short storie [...]

    • OMG, Hawthorne is really the writer who can cut in deeply. His writing is so emotional. I loved his Twice-Told Tales. He's become my "go to" author when I want to sink into another world. Many of his stories are set in Massachusetts or Boston in 19th century, of course. A real escape to the past in imagery and style. Love it.

    • I loved these short stories. This was the type of read that has stayed with me for a long time. The whole tone of the book is very New Englandy and as usual with Hawthorne his focus is on the moral struggle of early Americans, with a strange gothic twist - one of my favorite books ever.

    • Very rarely does one pick up a book at the exact time they’re supposed to read it. When this happens the reader is elevated to more than a mere reader, they share a spiritual life with the characters on paper. This was the case as I read “Twice-Told Tales” by Nathaniel Hawthorne. All the stories in this book are catches for the untrained juggler of my present catastrophes. You see, I have been dealing mentally and emotionally as best I can with the reality of being male in such an anti-mal [...]

    • I wanted to like this, I really did.But say it hasn't aged well is an understatement. 'The minister's black veil' was the only one I could finish without struggling and pushing myself, or just skipping whole pages. And this is the only book in my entire library that I didn't have the willpower or determination to finish. It will likely remain unfinished.It's not bad. None of it was bad. They were probably amazing short stories in their time, but for meEch. Reading this book was the literal equiv [...]

    • I've generally liked Hawthorne's short stories and novels, so I picked this up at a used bookstore hoping it would be similar. Unfortunately, this collection is heavy on the "sketch" and light on the "story." Hawthorne admits this in his introduction, so I feel somewhat guilty rating it so low. The slices of early American life are interesting and valuable, but I would recommend a very slow reading, maybe one story every other week while you read something more substantial.

    • Had a hardcover with a cloth cover, years ago. My mom accidentally gave it away when we moved. Damn, I really must get a new copy. Love Hawthorne. The subtle scare is the hardest to pull off, but when done right, its effectiveness lasts much longer in the reader's mind, in my opinion.

    • Hawthorne is wonderful with short stories. While I've definitely hurried through some of the stories to get to others, most of the stories are delightful. Some personal favorites would be Wakefield, David Swan, and The Minister's Black Veil.

    • These stories are a great read--strange, wierd but great-Hawthorne uses language so well -the words can have many meanings

    • These are really interesting stories. They all seem to be dark and full of unanswerable questions. I haven't read them all, but I intend to through the years.

    • American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864) and Edgar Allan Poe are credited with creating the short story genre. "Twice-Told Tales" is Hawthorne's first collection of short stories, published in two parts, in 1837 and 1842, and elicited the first attempt (by Poe) to define the short story in a review published in 1842. These thirty-two tales, generally situated in Hawthorne's native New England, are penned in the flowery prose that was popular in the mid-19th century; the embellished style [...]

    • Not sure what my review was the last time I read it, but I'm giving it 4 stars. I enjoyed the short stories, some more than others. This is the third time I've read it, this time for the 2018 reading challenge (A book I saw someone reading in public - waiting room at a doctor's office). It is of course, dated, so it reads more like a collection of folktales, but in a way, that is rather a good description.

    • Truly a Classic can live forever. I love his stories of the Puritians of morals of questioning man's place in this world. It is a real good read for a moody day. I started reading this because I was in a dark mood. Surprisingly though there was some humor in his stories. You will find a whole range of the human emotional stage in this collection. Enjoy!

    • This is an excellent collection of short stories; however, being short stories, there can be no real character or plot development. I wish the author had chosen to turn a few of these into novels. Nevertheless, there are some absolutely fascinating glimpses of colonial America.

    • From early on Hawthorne has had this mesmerizing affect on me. As a youngster my first introduction to NH was Young Goodman Brown, and I confess I had problems understanding the various themes throughout. Twice Told Tales is a collection of Hawthorne's short stories, and trust me when I say, not so short stories. There is no doubt that Hawthorne could be long winded, but he had such mastery of the language it's like reading poetry sometimes. I can honestly say that there is something to be learn [...]

    • "Where all things fade, how miserable to be one that could not fade!" Before I started to type out this review: "Oh boy, I haven't managed to get around to this review yet. I hope I still remember enough about the book to fill out this review!"After I finished: "Oh wow. Um, disaster avoided, I guess?"Why do I even worry? Twice-Told Talesis a compilation of short stories by 19th century author Nathaniel Hawthorne. While most of the tales are perhaps not as exciting or gripping as many modern nove [...]

    • Hawthorne is surely one of the masters of the American short story, as evidenced in these stories from his first collection. They range from dark to whimsical, from ambiguous to didactic, from conventional to almost experimental, and from essay-like sketches to probing psychological studies. He has a striking ability to craft memorable stories. Even the ones that fail (very few!) do so in unforgettable fashion. It's also easy to see why Hawthorne remains popular in American high schools. His sto [...]

    • The two contemporary reviews included as an afterward were interesting. One was by Longfellow and the other by Poe. Both literary giants deemed Hawthorne a genius and these tales works of the highest order. Contrasting their opinions with my own, I guess it's all in what you're used to. To the modern sensibility, the tales have far too much narrative (some of which barely pertains to the story) and are in several instances missing a plot. Very little happens in many of them, and so many are depr [...]

    • One of the things people tend to miss when thinking about 19th century American literature is that the greatest works of narrative fiction of the time were largely not novels but short stories. It's not surprising, nobody really read short stories then and they don't really read them seriously now. And Hawthorne might well have been the preeminent short story writer of his era (with all due respect to Poe and Melville). "Twice-Told Tales" was Hawthorne's first collection and doesn't always see h [...]

    • I'll come back and add more later, but for now I want to compare the two versions of the book. I borrowed a really lovely special version (George Macy Companies, Inc.) from the library and then found out that another version (thus pictured in this review) had a post-script by E.A. Poe. Amazing! Bought the second and found out that the different versions have different stories. So the lists below cover stories that are found in each version, in addition to stories that are in the individual versi [...]

    • It is time to start reading the Church Book Sale books before the next Book Sale I enjoyed Twice-Told Tales. There were some stories that I didn't think stood the test of time, but there were others I found really enjoyable. I remembered reading Doctor Heidegger's Experiment and The Minister's Black Veil back in junior high and high school. I found there were stories that I enjoyed much more in the anthology. The short story, "Snowflakes," captures the first snowfall perfectly - just change out [...]
