This is the reading for part 4 of the four part series on Nathaniel Hawthorne and the Birth of Sci Fi.
I have decided to record the commentary separately. For now, enjoy the reading of the Artist of the Beautiful.
Here is one question to ask yourself before entering the world of Hawthorne's artist. Does the artist solve a problem that Hawthorne established was the flaw of the scientist in his former stories, Dr. Heidegger's Experiment, The Birthmark, Rappaccini's Daughter?
Most importantly, what does Hawthorne's answer to this ambitious individual who wishes to discover and master the creative essence of the universe mean for us today?
