Summary Literary criticism and interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's work: The House of the Seven Gables. "The four Pyncheons live inside the blighted house: Hepzibah, an elderly recluse, Clifford, her feeble-minded brother, Phoebe, their young country cousin ... and Jaffrey, a devil incarnate whose greedy quest for secret wealth is marked by murder and terrible vengeance from a restless grave."
