Nathaniel Hawthorne

Look! It’s Salem, Massachusetts native, author, and part-time transcendentalist Nathaniel Hawthorne!

Hawthorne was an omega f*ckin’ level author. You should read his works. You should read them right now.

My favorite story is Young Goodman Brown.

Transcendentalists protested against the general state of culture and the state of intellectualism at Harvard during the 183os. One of the groups’s core beliefs was that the spiritual state can only be realized through intuiton, rather than through the doctrines of established religions. Hawthorne hung with them on their commune for awhile, but eventually got sick of f*ckin’ farming and left.

Trivia: Nathaniel Hawthorne’s grandpa was one of the judges at the Salem Witch Trials.
Prduction Note: I said “f*ck you” to the sh*tty Paper Mate pens and kicked it strait Sharpie today baby!
