CommentsA handsome edition of Hawthorne's clever story set in Italy about a "poisonous" young woman, written under the guise of a translation from the French of M. de l'Aubépine. The tale is accompanied by three contemporary appraisals of Hawthorne's work by Edgar Allan Poe, Anthony Trollope and Henry James.
