Summary:
"Part fairy tale, part Gothic horror story, Hawthorne's 'Rappaccini's Daughter' is an inspired tale of creation and control, and an ingenious biblical parody. Its fantastical element is brilliantly echoed in the two other short stories contained in this volume: 'Young Goodman Brown' sees one of Salem's townsmen introduced to a dark ceremony of diabolical intent, whilst 'A Select Party' tells of a magical party, set in a castle in the sky, and attended by a host of glittering guests." "Read together, these three short stories exemplify Hawthorne's key thematic concerns, and display all his art as a storyteller."--Jacket.
