The Marble Faun

By Hawthorne, Nathaniel




Hawthorne's novel of Americans abroad, the first novel to explore the influence of European cultural ideas on American morality. Although it is set in Rome, the fictive world of The Marble Faun depends not on Italy's social or historical significance, but rather on its aesthetic importance as a definer of 'civilization'. As in The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne is concerned here with the nature of transgression and guilt. A murder, motivated by love, affects not only Donatello, the murderer, but his beloved Miriam and their friends Hilda and Kenyon. As he explores the reactions of each to the crime, Hawthorne dramatizes both the freedoms a new cultural model inspires and the self-censoring conformities it requires. His examination of the influence of European culture on American travellers lay the groundwork for such later works of American fiction as Mark Twain's The Innocents Abroad and Henry James' The Portrait of a Lady.

First U.S. edition, second printing. This copy agrees with Clark's points for his second printing. Published simultaneously (or nearly so) with the UK edition, which was titled THE TRANSFORMATION ... Hawthorne's last major work of fiction, making use of his travels in Europe, especially Italy, in the late 1850s. As in most of his work, the weird and fantastic smolders underneath mundane events. "THE MARBLE FAUN, though it is severely flawed in other ways, is a good example of fairy tale and novel moving in opposite directions to good effect. As a fantasy, the story tells of a young man's journey to maturity. Donatello leaves home, meets the princess, slays the evil magician, flees, and ultimately, one hopes, gains both kingdom and bride. In the real world, however, Donatello's act is a crime, and his story is not a fairy tale but tempered tragedy." - Attebery, The Fantasy Tradition in American Literature, p. 51. Bleiler (1978), p. 96. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992). BAL 7621 (noted printing 1). Clark A23.3.a (plate variant B).

Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1860. 2nd edition (BAL 7622). Original publisher's brown cloth binding with gilt stamped title lettering to spine & boards stamped in blind. Bindings worn. A pulled gathering in Vol I. In each volume, Vidor's inscription "Library of King Vidor" [blue ink] to preliminary blank & Vidor's blindstamp to title leaf right margin. Period pos to half-title page ["D E Gill"]. Vol II lacks lower corner of rfep. A Good set.. 2 volumes (xi, [3], [15] - 283, [5 (blank)], 16; 288, [2 (blank)] pp). May 1860 catalogue concludes Volume I. 12mo. 7-3/8" x 4-3/4" Vidor "an American film director, film producer, and screenwriter whose career spanned nearly seven decades. In 1979 he was awarded an Honorary Academy Award for his 'incomparable achievements as a cinematic creator and innovator.' He was nominated five times for a Best Director Oscar, and won eight international film awards during his career." [Wiki]. One "... of Vidor's unproduced projects, a quite faithful adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Marble Faun, reminds us of their affinities. Hawthorne too, was a melodramatic moralist ... American optimism made the concept of sin very touchy and reproachful. But for both artists, 'sin' is usually redemptive. Vidor's script (first drafted, with Harry Behn, in 1954, and at one time titled The Sinner) centers on Hawthorne's Miriam and thus would have extended Vidor's postwar line of perhpaps-justified murderesses -- Pearl in Duel in the Sun, Rosa in Beyond the Forest, and Ruby in Ruby Gentry." [Durgnat & Simmon. King Vidor American. 1988]. A nice bibliophilic memento, which connects the 19th C American literary giant Hawthorne, with the 20th C film giant, the renowned Hollywood director, King Vidor.
