Today, Nathaniel Hawthorne, former United States consul to Great Britain, is remembered more for his literary masterpieces like The Scarlet Letter and The House of Seven Gables, less for his contribution to children’s literature. First published in 1853, this story is a sequel to a popular book called A Wonder Book. In both books Hawthorne retells Greek myths and covers the tales of the Minotaur, Pgymies, dragon’s teeth, Circe’s palace, pomegranate seeds, and Golden Fleece in this narrative.

Nathaniel Hawthorne (/ˈhɔːθɔːrn/; né Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist, dark romantic, and short story writer. His works often focus on history, morality, and religion. He was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts, to Nathaniel Hathorne and the former Elizabeth Clarke Manning.

A STUDY OF HAWTHORNE by George Parsons Lathrop. Version 2. The complete works of. Nathaniel hawthorne. Afterwards, when he had struck into the vein of fiction that came to be known as distinctively his own, he attempted to suppress this youthful work, and was so successful that he obtained and destroyed all but a few of the copies then extant. Some twelve years after his death it was resolved, in view of the interest manifested in tracing the growth of his genius from the beginning of his activity as an author, to revive this youthful romance; and the reissue of Fanshawe was then made.

Hawthorne's first Wonder Book was so well received that he was induced to undertake another within eighteen months from the time of finishing the first. To this new volume, made up in the same way of Greek myths retold with a modern, free, half-realistic and half-fanciful tone, he gave the name Tanglewood Tales. The previous series having been ostensibly narrated by one Eustace Bright, among the hills of Berkshire, these additional stories in the like vein were represented as having been brought by Eustace Bright to Hawthorne. -- from George Parsons Lathrop's Introduction

  • This is another of the many classic tales that the famed author Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote for children. This is the tale called "The Midas Touch," which children should know because it is part of world culture.
    King Midas was obsessed by his love of gold which he horded in his basement dungeon. Once when he was in his dungeon, which he had locked so that no one could come and see and take his gold, a smiling stranger appeared. The stranger noticed that he had much gold but was not satisfied. He asked Midas what he wanted. After lengthy thought, Midas said he was tired of searching for gold and wanted that everything he touched would turn into gold. The stranger said he would grant the wish which would begin in the morning.
    The next morning, the wish materialized. Everything the king touched turned into gold. When he put on his gasses, it turned to gold and he could not see through them. When he dressed in his clothes, they turned to gold and were heavy. He touched his much-admired rose garden and all the roses became gold and lost their color and smell. He tried to eat, but his food and drink turned to gold and he could consume nothing.
    But then something excitingly worse occurred.
    Children will enjoy the adventure, learn much about greed and about appreciating what one has, and they will look forward to discovering what happens in this classic tale. I think they will enjoy it so much they will want to hear other classics.

  • I was very disappointed by the complete lack of ANY illustrations in this book. Other older copies are illustrated. Some reviews said there were illustrations in this book, but perhaps they have been removed. Other elements are very low quality as well. This book is just a notch above a photocopy of a printout.

  • Six Greek Myths/Tales are told to a group of children by their cousin, Eustace Bright so before and after each story you are reading of the interactions and activities of the children. The six stories are:

    Gorgons * Midas * The Paradise of Children (Pandora's Box) * Three Golden Apples (Hercules) * The Miraculous Pitcher * The Chimaera

    The Kindle version is not formatted properly in two ways. The "U's" in the titles are shown as "V's" and the first letter of the chapter is on the end of the chapter's title. HOWEVER as this version is FREE, one cannot really complain. I am reading this aloud to our children and older children should be able to work through the errors without any problems. The rest of the text is great and the stories are retold very well.

  • These are classic stories from Greek mythology. The easy way to introduce young people to Perseus, Mercury, the Minotaur,. Medusa and other tales which afe referred to in films and literature. Long introductions may be skipped to get directly to the stories.

  • Tanglewood Tales was an old childhood favorite (beaten up hard-cover edition, with color Maxfield Parrish illustrations). I was so looking forward to sharing this version of the Greek classics with my own kids.

    Okay...a literary critic I'm not. I just wanted to drop in and say that this version SUCKS. There were quite a few missing pages, and the illustrations were mostly black globs.

    A total rip off.

  • I read these books when I was a child. I started reading these stories to the kiddo's. It's very nice to have a quiet time in the evening reading these wondrous stories to the children. The discussions that invariably present themselves are worth their weight in gold, then add to that the spark of imagination that results is truly amazing. No amount of video games or TV & movies can replace one hour of Nathaniel Hawthorne!

    Even though this book does not include the wonderful lithographs the original books did, the stories stand by themselves. Of course, the seriously low price of the books would negate the pictures. The book itself is high quality. The paper cover is very thick & glossy. The pages of the book are bound to the spine for longevity. I can predict this book will disappear and miraculously reappear in one of the childrens bookshelves when they strike out on their own, to seek their fame & fortune, defeating hideous monsters they meet along the way.

  • This book was printed from an e-book. How do I know? The e-book terms and conditions are printed on the second page. Not surprisingly, the illustrations and text are of poor quality as a result. I am returning this book and will be buying a more professionally printed copy for my children.
