renewed) reputation; his interest in the beginnings of things (biblical,
historical, personal); his new friends; his sense of the "new" vs.
the "old" world; his definition of the "new" woman--and new man ("New
Adam and Eve"); Hawthorne and the New Romanticism; Hawthorne and the New
Classroom; Hawthorne and the (new) State of Maine; Hawthorne and the
(new) structure of allegory; and Hawthorne in the new (21st) Century.
