    The House of the Sev

    by Hawthorne, Nathaniel

    Download Rank: 20

    The House of the Seven Gables begins with a preface that identifies the work as a romance, not a novel.

The preface also conveys the major theme of the book, which Hawthorne refers to as a moral: “the wrong-doing of one generation lives into the successive ones, and . . . becomes a pure and uncontrollable mischief.”
