In a lengthy paragraph describing her “preparations for their evening repast,” he writes an apostrophe to domestic ideals – a veritable fairy tale of domesticity transported to the heart of the wilderness. ” Dorcas even sings while she works. Her “voice danced through the gloomy forest” (10: 357), while Hawthorne emphasizes that “four continually-recurring lines shone out from the rest, like the blaze of the hearth whose joys they celebrated. Into them, working magic with a few simple words, the poet had instilled the very essence of domestic love and household happiness, and they were poetry and picture joined in one” (10: 358).

11 Recent scholarship on Hawthorne’s writing in a context formed by women, women’s issues, and women’s writing, has come a long way from the character typology approaches of earlier periods. 12 Cooper’s Alice and Cora Munro in The Last of the Mohicans (1826) and Hetty and Judith Hutter in The Deerslayer (1841), Poe’s Rowena and Ligeia in “Ligeia” (1838), Melville’s Yilla and Hautia in Mardi (1849) and Lucy Tartan and Isabel Banford in Pierre; or, The Ambiguities (1852) compare with Hawthorne’s Priscilla and Zenobia in The Blithedale Romance (1852) and Hilda and Miriam in The Marble Faun (1860).

But Hawthorne concludes the story with the observation that, “when the artist rose high enough to achieve the Beautiful, the symbol by which he made it perceptible to mortal senses became of little value in his eyes, while his spirit possessed itself in the enjoyment of the Reality” (10: 475).
