Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64). Although his friends included a number of noted transcendentalists--such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Bronson Alcott--Nathaniel Hawthorne's works show little of the optimism and self-confidence that marked transcendentalism. Instead, he preferred themes drawn more from a Puritan preoccupation with guilt and the natural depravity of humans.
