It can be proved and confirmed in many points that Updike`s Roger`s Version is a parody of Hawthorne`s The Scarlet Letter. In the first place, the title of the novel Roger`s Version is connected with Roger Chillingworth in The Scarlet Letter. In addition, Esther, Dale, and Paula are certainly parodies of Nester, Dimmesdale and Pearl. Not only the similarity of the names, but also their relationships are based on those of the protagonists in The Scarlet Letter. The most remarkable similarity is the adultery between Esther whose husband is much older and Dale who has a cold intellect and weak will-power though he is much younger. Connected with the sin of adultery, the psychological influence on the characters is also regarded as a similarity in the themes of the two novels. While The Scarlet Letter`s pivot is adultery as a secret sin, Roger`s Version deals with the problem of incest as well. This is due to the fact that adultery in present society is by no means one of the test serious sins because we live in an age of the depravity of human nature owing to social corruption. In the problem of religion, as Hawthorne satirizes Puritan`s hypocrisy, so Updike satirizes Roger`s sin of pride as a traditional theologian. Updike, however, should be regarded as a sturdier The Scarlet Getter activist than Hawthorne. In The Scarlet Letter, Hester, Dimmesdale and Pearl reach salvation after a series of sufferings, but Roger Chillingworth is isolated from the worlds of those three to the last. Contrary to this, Updike`s Roger takes part in the concrete sin of incest, understands other persons` sins related to sexuality and recovers a truly humane life by forgiving others. Both Hawthorne and Updike scrutinize humanity from the viewpoints of sin and religious faith, emphasizing the sexual relationship as a concrete contribution for this purpose. The means of reconciliation between man and God and between man and man which these two writers aim to consider is certainly love, as most writers conclude in their novels.

A modern American writer, Flannery O`Connor once said that one of her literary ancestors is Nathaniel Hawthorne. Indeed, The Violent Bear It Away, O`Connor`s short novel, and My Kinsman, Manor Molineux,$quot; Hawthorne`s short story, show same interesting similarities. Each story is an initiation story in which a teen-age boy is presented as its hero. These two boys, Hawthorne`s Robin and O`Connor`s Francis Marion Tarwater, show some conspicuous similarities. However, closer examination of the two boys reveals some significant differences on deeper level. The Comparison and Contrast of these two boys will help readers to understand the affinities and differences between the two great American writers. Both Robin and Tarwater are innocent country boys at the beginning of each story. However, Robin is far more fortunate than Tarwater in family background. Robin has been raised in a respectable family: he has been taken good care of and much loved by his parents, brothers and sisters, In contrast, Tarwater has been raised in poverty and isolation by his eccentric, fanatical Great Uncle, Mason Tarwater. He was kidnapped as a baby by Mason Tarwater after his mother was killed in a traffic accident and his father committed suicide in despair. Tarwater has been denied even the opportunities of school education. Moreover, Mason Tarwater would insult the boy`s dead parents and Rayber, the boy`s uncle, when referring to them. So, it is not surprising that Tarwater shows emotional unstability and rebellious spirit: Robin and Tarwater go to a strange city with the same aim - to visit their kins, father-figures for them. The boys have similiar experiences in their encounter with their kins: they become disillusioned or shocked, and they give up their hope of depending on their kins to rise in the world. However, the emphasis placed on Major Molineux (Robin`s kin) cannot be compared with that placed on Rayber (Tarwater`s uncle). Major Molineux appears only once in the story - in the climactic confrontation scene in front of the church near the end of the story. In good contrast, nearly half of the whole story is alloted for describing Rayber or his thought. This fact implies that Rayber is one of the very important characters in O`Connor`s novel. In fact, Rayber as well as Mason Tarwater and Bishop is a double figure of Francis Marion Tarwater. Robin and Tarwater are also similiar in that each meets $quot;strangers$quot; in a strange city. These strangers are evil figures. However. the most sinister strangers show some differences. In Robin`s case, all the strangers, so-called devil figures, are embodied in other human beings. But in Tarwater`s case, the most sinister stranger appears as $quot;`the voice$quot; lurking in his consciousness. This voice continues to tempt him to revolt against Mason Tarwater`s orders and to drown Bishop to evade his lot as a chosen prophet. Nevertheless, Tarwater suceeds in destroying this stranger by building a wall of fire between the stranger and himself Nathaniel Hawthorne Robin. Flannery O`Connor near the end of the novel. One more important similarity between Robin and Tarwater is that they see $quot;vision.$quot; But the nature of Robin`s vision is not the same as that of Tarwater`s. Robin$quot;s vision is based on his past life in his home town, yet his vision does not help him to decide his future. In Tarwater`s case, visions appear several times and in divers forms. For example, $quot;the stranger$quot; appears many times in his vision. Even after Bishop`s death, Tarwater looks at the stranger`s violet eyes and Bishop`s grey eyes in vision. But the most significant vision for Tarwater is the evangelical vision he has after he learns that Mason Tarwater had a decent Christian burial thanks to Buford. This vision, unrelated with any of Tarwater`s past experiences, exerts tremendous influence on Tarwater in deciding his future, He humbly accepts a thorny life as a self-appointed prophet and returns

The purpose of this paper is to identify the nature of Hawthorne`s earlier dilemma as a writer by observing his autobiographic works generally known as $quot;Oberon stories,$quot; which were written until 1837. They include $quot;The Seven Vagabonds,$quot; $quot;Passages from a Relinquished Work,$quot; $quot;The Devil in Manuscript,$quot; and `$quot;Fragments from the Journal of a Solitary Man.$quot; To strengthen the argument, same other works of this period such as `$quot;The Canterbury Pilgrims,$quot; $quot;My Kinsman, Major Molineux,$quot; $quot;`Alice Doane`s Appeal,$quot; and $quot;My Visit to Niagara$quot; are studied, which deal with the relevant issues like $quot;initiation,$quot; artist-audience relationship or the importance of artistic sensitivity. During the early nineteenth century when Hawthorne started his literary career, America underwent a drastic transition from an agricultural to an industrialized country, in which literary circle was no exception. When he resolved to be a writer after graduation from Bowdoin College in 1825, he wanted to support himself only through writing. But, as he involuntarily restricted his readers only to a few intellectuals who could understand his artistic beauty and purpose with sensitivity, he failed in securing both literary fame and popularity which will provide him with decent income. This means that he felt difficulty in adapting himself to a changed literary circle: while he wanted to remain a $quot;lazy$quot; romantist in a pragmatic community of New England, the reading public, as it increased rapidly including women and laborers due to

The purpose of this paper is to search for the substance of human nature depicted in the short tale $quot;Young Goodman Brown$quot; by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne shows how sin influences on the psychological changes of the dark and melancholy depth of human mind. The protagonist is a young Puritan who is being changed into a skeptic by assigning his devilish desire to others. His ego is hardly restricted by his super-ego because his id is likely to fall into a wicked desire. The Ego tends to be overcome by the id in the spite of the super-ego`s serious resistance. What is buried in the tomb of Brown`s mind is a wicked sexual desire in the oppressed unconsciousness. Thus Howthorne describes the process of psychological changes until the desire is buried in the tomb of Goodman Brown`s mind. The writer of this essay aims at studying $quot;Young Goodman Brown$quot; by Freudian interpretation. Goodman Brown is liable to be thought of as a good but frail man, but actually he is a sinful man. All men are sinners. Goodman Brown`s experiences show the universality of sins and the self-justification of a diseased mind. Sins always seem to be concealed, but clearly visible in the wicked human nature. These are symbolically shown by means of allegory and beautiful art of romance.
