Hawthorne and His Mosses
By resorting to a large collection of characters in charge of elaborate narratives and seemingly abstract dialogues, the author succeeds in creating multiple narratives, somehow compelling his public to actively engage in the very act of reading if they want to read beyond words. The novel becomes a real test of confidence for anyone committed to deciphering textual clues and establishing the final meaning. Depicting an American society mostly driven by money, The Confidence-Man has baffled reviewers as well as readers because it constantly challenges conventions and established genres — refusing specific categories and definite closure — and manipulated truth through masks and disguise, digressions or irony, therefore compelling the public to engage actively in the very act of reading. It appears then that by being able to identify the satirical vein of a narrative fraught with deluded characters whose confidence is being tested to obtain money, readers may feel more confident too in their attempt to search for a meaningful and stable interpretation. Yes, there was a depression. But how came it? The message obviously suggests that a business only operates on a cash-only basis and, by extension, so does the test on confidence.

Both writers were then living in the Berkshire Mountains—Melville in Pittsfield, Hawthorne in a small cottage in Lenox—but had not yet encountered one another. They did, however, share a friendship with the editor, publisher, and bibliophile Evert Augustus Duyckinck — , who indirectly brought the two men together. Exercising the literary arm of the Young America movement, Duyckinck had issued Melville's Typee as one of Wiley and Putnam's Library of American Books, a series that intended to promote national authors in affordable editions and thereby compete with the cheap British books flooding the American market. That there was no international copyright law vexed the literary members of the Young America movement, who made copyright reform one of their chief issues. First in the series was Hawthorne's edition of the Journal of an African Cruiser , written by his college friend Horatio Bridge, and soon after Duyckinck published Hawthorne's second collection of stories, Mosses from an Old Manse Four years later, while Duyckinck and the essayist Cornelius Mathews c.
