This three-part selection of horror stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne explores the psyches of convention-bound characters and the bizarre means they use to elude the restrictions of society. “Dr Heidegger’s Experiment tells the tale of an elderly physician who develops an elixir of life and uses it to resurrect the woman he was to have married. He also rejuvenates himself and his best friend only to discover with tragic consequences that he is the odd man out in a lover’s triangle. “Rappacini’s Daughter” is also about love and... jealousy. Rappacini is a disillusioned botanist who rears his daughter in a garden of poisonous plants and goes so far as to innoculate her with their juices until anyone who touches her dies. “The House of the Seven Gables” concerns a rumour of treasure hidden within a haunted house and the effect of an ancient curse on the young man who tries to find the fortune.
