Publisher's Summary

The Marble Faun (1860) was the last of the four major romances by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Writing on the eve of the American Civil War, Hawthorne set his story in a fantastical Italy. The romance mixes elements of a fable, pastoral, gothic novel, and travel guide. The climax comes less than halfway through the story, and Hawthorne intentionally fails to answer many of the reader's questions about the characters and the plot.

Charm but no substance

I've a soft spot for these old American radio plays but this is a lousy tale and the music between scenes is deafening. I know it says abridged but it misses out huge swathes of the novel.
