Ethan Brand

In the chapter from which these excerpts from Salem Is My Dwelling Place are drawn, Edwin Haviland Miller puts the writing of "Ethan Brand" in the context of Hawthorne's life at the time. In this excerpt, the reader can find parallels between the theme of alienation in the story and in Hawthorne's life:

"Except for the local newspapers, the press treated Hawthorne sympathetically, as an Owen Warland battling against the philistines" (270). (courtesy of University of Iowa Press)
