Jonathan A. The friendship of Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne has long fascinated critics and biographers of both authors, as well as anyone interested in the history of American literature and the genesis of one of its supreme masterworks, Moby-Dick , dedicated to Hawthorne as a token of Melville's admiration for the older writer's "genius. After Shakespeare and the Bible , Hawthorne as man and artist had perhaps the greatest influence on Melville's writing, leaving a distinctive imprint on his plots, themes, characterizations, symbols, and images from Moby-Dick through Clarel and beyond.

Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, in Salem, Massachusetts. When he was four years old, his father died. Years later, with financial help from his maternal relatives who recognized his literary talent, Hawthorne was able to enroll in Bowdoin College. Among his classmates were the important literary and political figures Horatio Bridge, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Franklin Pierce. These friends supplied Hawthorne with employment during the early years after graduation while Hawthorne was still establishing himself as a legitimate author. Hawthorne's first novel, Fanshawe, which he self-published in , wasn't quite the success that he had hoped it would be.

Mosses from an Old Manse and Other Stories
In the latter part of the last century there lived a man of science, an eminent proficient in every branch of natural philosophy, who not long before our story opens had made experience of a spiritual affinity more attractive than any chemical one. He had left his laboratory to the care of an assistant, cleared his fine countenance from the furnace smoke, washed the stain of acids from his fingers, and persuaded a beautiful woman to become his wife. In those days when the comparatively recent discovery of electricity and other kindred mysteries of Nature seemed to open paths into the region of miracle, it was not unusual for the love of science to rival the love of woman in its depth and absorbing energy. The higher intellect, the imagination, the spirit, and even the heart might all find their congenial aliment in pursuits which, as some of their ardent votaries believed, would ascend from one step of powerful intelligence to another, until the philosopher should lay his hand on the secret of creative force and perhaps make new worlds for himself. We know not whether Aylmer possessed this degree of faith in man's ultimate control over Nature. He had devoted himself, however, too unreservedly to scientific studies ever to be weaned from them by any second passion. His love for his young wife might prove the stronger of the two; but it could only be by intertwining itself with his love of science, and uniting the strength of the latter to his own.

Каким рейсом она летит. - Она сказала, колымагой. - Колымагой. - Ну да, это ночной рейс в выходные - Севилья, Мадрид, Ла-Гуардиа. Его так все называют. Им пользуются студенты, потому что билет стоит гроши.
У него было больное сердце, - сказал Фонтейн. Смит поднял брови. - Выходит, выбор оружия был идеальным. Сьюзан смотрела, как Танкадо повалился на бок и, наконец, на спину. Он лежал, устремив глаза к небу и продолжая прижимать руку к груди. Внезапно камера отъехала в сторону, под деревья. В кадре возник мужчина в очках в тонкой металлической оправе, в руке он держал большой портфель.
- Но на этот раз, - он вытянул левую руку так, чтобы она попала в камеру, и показал золотой ободок на безымянном пальце, - на этот раз у меня есть кольцо. ГЛАВА 116 - Читайте, мистер Беккер! - скомандовал Фонтейн. Джабба сидел весь потный, положив руки на клавиатуру. - Да, да, - сказал он, - читайте эту благословенную надпись. Сьюзан стояла рядом, у нее подгибались колени и пылали щеки. Все в комнате оставили свои занятия и смотрели на огромный экран и на Дэвида Беккера. Профессор вертел кольцо в пальцах и изучал надпись.
ГЛАВА 49 Беккер с трудом поднялся и рухнул на пустое сиденье. - Ну и полет, придурок, - издевательски хмыкнул парень с тремя косичками. Беккер прищурился от внезапной вспышки яркого света.
