A Wonder Book For Girls And Boys Summary
Hawthorne expressed his idea to rewrite Greek myths as early as 1846 when he outlined a book to Eve rt Augustus Duckling of stories “taken out of the cold moonshine of classical mythology, and modernized, or perhaps Gothicism, so that they may be felt by children of these days.” In 1851, just after the birth of his daughter Rose he proposed the idea again in the form of a collection of six tales. His aim would be, he wrote, “substituting a tone in some degree Gothic or romantic, or any such tone as may please myself, instead of the classic coldness, which is as repellent as the touch of marble… and, of course, I shall purge out all the old heathen wickedness, and put in a moral wherever practicable.”
