    Reportedly, Ingersoll inspired Hawthorne to write the novel, though Hawthorne also stated that the book was a work of complete fiction, based on no particular house. The house, which belongs to the Pyncheon family, has a long and controversial history. As he wrote in a letter, "The expression was new and struck me forcibly However, neither the general reading public nor the literary critics, it has turned out, agreed with him. The Pyncheon family actually existed and were ancestors of American novelist Thomas Pynchon.

    Inspiration for Hawthorne[ edit ] Nathaniel Hawthornea relative of the Ingersolls, was infamous for being reclusive during his time living in Salem, in part because Hawthorne himself exaggerated his reputation. The lattice fence surrounding it is in ruin. Its seven-gabled state was known to Hawthorne only through childhood stories from his cousin; at the time of his visits, he would have seen just three gables due to architectural renovations. This poor, aging man seems to have the intellect of a child.

    Hawthorne is adamant that The House of the Seven Gables be understood as a work of fiction. If we have any objections to the hypnosis and spontaneous hemorrhages that will occur later in the novel, we can no longer hold Hawthorne accountable for our inability to suspend our disbelief. The "truth" which he hoped to conceive is of a different order from the truth conveyed by ordinary didactic fiction, by philosophy, or by the symbolism of the exact sciences. Ceilings in this new wing are higher than the very low ceilings in older parts of the house.
