URL :  Ethan Brand
Author : Nathaniel Hawthorne
Detail : Date of publication: 1850

"Ethan Brand—A Chapter from an Abortive Romance" (originally, "The Unpardonable Sin") is a short story written by Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1850 and first published by Ticknor, Reed, and Fields in 1852 in The Snow-Image, and Other Twice-Told Tales, the author's final collection of short stories. Hawthorne originally planned a lengthy work about Brand, but completed only this piecer. Hawthorne's inspiration was a lime kiln he saw burning while climbing Mount Greylock. It has been suggested that Brand was based on Herman Melville, but the two writers had yet to meet when the story was published.

A lime-burner named Bartram and his son hear a disturbing roar of laughter echo through the twilight in the hills. Soon thereafter, Ethan Brand arrives at the lime kiln and is questioned by Bartram. Brand says that he used to keep the very same kiln before he went off in search of the "unpardonable sin", which he claims to have found.
