Fugitive periodical printings of Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Listed below are reprintings of Nathaniel Hawthorne's work in newspapers and periodicals during his lifetime and in the first decades of the twentieth century. Combined with the information on printings and reprintings provided in C. E. Frazer Clark, Jr.'s Nathaniel Hawthorne: A Descriptive Bibliography (Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 1978), they offer useful data on Hawthorne's literary reputation beginning in the early 1830s. Items are listed under four rubrics: "Stories, Tales, Sketches," "Non-fiction," "Abridgements, Condensations," and "Quotations." Besides the main lists of stories, sketches, essays and poems reprinted, two final lists include: (1) published condensations of Hawthorne's novels (usually no longer than a page), and (2) self-standing quotations or excerpts. Several search engines, namely "America's Historical Newspapers," "American Periodical Series,"" and "ProQuest"s Historical Newspapers," were used in compiling this information.

Although it would be unwise to make too much of the tabulations for each story or sketch, it is interesting that some of the tales that have long been considered to be among Hawthorne's most important were rather infrequently reprinted--"Young Goodman Brown" (1 reprint), "Egotism; or, The Bosom-Serpent" (3), "Drowne's Wooden Image" (3), "The Birthmark" (3), and "The Minister's Black Veil" (5). The most frequently reprinted tales, on the other hand, give some indication of the taste of Hawthorne's contemporary readers. The list includes, in ascending order, "Ethan Brand" (10), "A Rill from the Town-Pump" (13), "John Inglefield's Thanksgiving" (published pseudonymously) and "The Pine-Tree Shillings" (both at 14), "The Shaker Burial" (attributed at first to "Mrs. Sedgwick") (15), "David Swan" (18), and "The Wives of the Dead" (20). Such vintage Hawthorne tales as "The Artist of the Beautiful," "Roger Malvin's Burial," "Wakefield," and "Rappaccini's Daughter" do not make the list at all. The novelty of discovering a new tale by Hawthorne as late as 1900 accounts for the 7 reprints of "The Ghost of Dr. Harris." Five of the reprints of "The Celestial Rail-road"" were by religious publications.

Quotations or Excerpts

["Little as we know of our life to come, we may be very sure, for one thing, that the good we aim at will not be attained. People never do get just the good they seek. If it come at all, it is something else, which they never dreamed of, and did not particularly want."]

Country Gentleman (Albany, New York) (Oct. 6, 1853), p. 228.

"Today"

["Happy boys! Enjoy your play time now and come again to study and to feel the birch rod and ferule tomorrow. Sport, boys, while you may, for the morrow cometh with the birch rod and the ferule, and after than another morrow with troubles of its own."]

"Christian Faith"

["Christian faith is a grand cathedral, with divinely pictured windows. Standing without, you see no glory, nor can possibly imagine any. Standing within, every ray of light reveals a harmony of unspeakable splendor."]

"The Delightful Lure of the Confectioner"

["How delightful to let the fancy revel on the dainties of a confectioner: those pies, with such white and laky paste, their contents being a mystery, whether rich mince, with whole plums intermixed, or piquant apple, delicately rose flavored: those cakes, heart-shaped or round, piled in a lofty pyramid; those sweet little circles, sweetly named kisses; those dark majestic masses, fit to be bridal loaves at the wedding of an heiress, mountains in size, their summits deeply snow-covered with sugar! Then the mighty treasures of sugar plums, white and crimson and yellow, in large glass vases; and candy of all varieties; and those little cookies, or whatever they are called, much prized by children for their sweetness, and more for the mottoes which they inclose, by love-sick maids and bachelors! Oh, my mouth waters!"]

"The Original 'Old-fashioned' Query (Nathaniel Hawthorne) in 'The House of the Seven Gables'"

["What has become of the old-fashioned square-top chaises, with wings sticking out on either side, that used to be drawn by a plow horse, and driven by a farmer's wife and daughter peddling whortleberries and blackberries about the town?"]

["There is nothing more awful in happiness than in sorrow, the latter being earthly and finite, the former composed of the substance and texture of Eternity, so that spirits still embodied may well tremble at it."] Dallas Morning News (Texas) (June 27, 1916), p. 10.

"The Spoils System (Nathaniel Hawthorne)"

["It is essential, in order to a complete estimate of the advantages of official life, to view the incumbent at the in-coming of a hostile administration. His position is then one of the most singularly irksome, and, in every contingency, disagreeable, that a wretched mortal can possibly occupy; with seldom an alternative of good on either hand, although what presents itself to him as the worst event may very probably be the best."]

The Evening News (San Jose, California) (Jan. 15, 1920), p. 6. "In October"

["October 17 [1835]-Some of the oaks are now a deep brown red; others are changed to a light green, which at a little distance, especially in the sunshine, looks like the green of early spring. In some trees, different masses of the foliage show lack of these hues. Some of the walnut trees have a yet more delicate green. Others are of a bright sunny yellow--Nathaniel Hawthorne, 'American NoteBook'."]
