It's been years since I last read The House of the Seven Gables, and even longer since I've read The Scarlet Letter, so this was a pleasant reintroduction to Hawthorne. The collection is pretty uniformly great, but there are a few standouts that are even better than their fellow stories: "The Artist of the Beautiful, "Ethan Brand," and "Rappacini's Daughter" are my favorites. Definitely worth reading if you're interested in American literature, and it made me want to reread his novels.
