Edgar Allan Poe reviewed this collection of short stories and said: "The style of Hawthorne is purity itself. His tone is singularly effective -- wild, plaintive, thoughtful, and in full accordance with his themes." He concluded that, "we look upon him as one of the few men of indisputable genius to whom our country has as yet given birth."
