Lord Feathertop

About the Story

Lord Feathertop Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, MA, and is a descendant of John Hathorne, a judge in the Salem witchcraft trials of 1692. Much of Hawthorne’s writing centers on Puritan hypocrisy, intolerance, guilt, and obsession with sin. Hawthorne is best known for his short stories and his novels The Scarlet Letter (1850) and The House of the Seven Gables (1851). “Feathertop” (1852) was first published in two parts in The International Magazine and was later included in Hawthorne’s short story collection Mosses from an Old Manse (1854).
