The stunning collection of short fiction that established Nathaniel Hawthorne as one of the most powerful and provocative artists in nineteenth-century America Dr. Heidegger invites four friends to witness an experiment. As the impoverished merchant Mr. Medbourne, the gout-ridden sinner Colonel Killigrew, the ruined politician Mr. Gascoigne, and the aged widow Wycherly watch, Heidegger places an old rose in a vase filled with water drawn from the Fountain of Youth. When the rose blooms again, the elderly guests clamor to drink the water and relive their early years more soberly than they did the first time around. But wisdom rarely graces the young, and Heidegger&́#x80;™s test subjects soon discover that miracles won&́#x80;™t prevent them from behaving like fools all over again. &́#x80;œDr. Heidegger&́#x80;™s Experiment&́#x80; is just one of the classic short stories collected in this indispensable volume. From &́#x80;œThe Minister&́#x80;™s Black Veil&́#x80; to &́#x80;œThe Great Carbuncle&́#x80; to &́#x80;œThe May-Pole of Merry Mount,&́#x80; Twice-Told Tales shines a brilliant light on the mysteries of the human heart. Its profound influence on American literature is a testament to the scope of Nathaniel Hawthorne&́#x80;™s vision and the genius of his craft. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
