This book demonstrates how Nathaniel Hawthorne's lifelong friendship with Franklin Pierce influenced the author's literary imagination, often prompting him to transform Pierce from his historical personage into a romanticized figure of distinctly Jacksonian qualities. The book also examines how Hawthorne's friendship with Pierce profoundly influenced a wide range of his work, from his first novel, "Fanshawe" (1828) to the "Life of Franklin Pierce" (1852) and later works.
