Â Â Â Â Â The man Nathaniel http://essay-writing-help841.mystrikingly.com Hawthorne, an author of the nineteenth century, was born in 1804, in Salem, Massachusetts. It was there that he lived a poverty-stricken childhood without the financial support of a father, because he had passed away in 1808. Hawthorne was raised strictly Puritan, his great-grandfather had even been one of the judges in the Puritan witchcraft trials during the 1600s. This and Hawthorneâ€™s destitute upbringing advanced his understanding of human nature and distress felt by social, religious, and economic inequities. Hawthorne was a private individual who fancied solitude with family friends. He was also very devoted to his craft of writing. Hawthorne observed the decay of Puritanism with opposition; believing that is was a manâ€™s responsibility to pursue the highest truth and possessed a strong moral sense. These aspects of Hawthorneâ€™s philosophy are what drove him to write about and even become a part of an experiment in social reform, in a utopian colony at Brook Farm.
