dude, * is in your own words, not mine.
* = the answer
i don't know sorry i cannot read a novel in 30 min.
but just in case i think the answer is b.
the correct answer option for this is: false.
we are given the following statement 'hawthorne thought of himself as a novelist' which is false.
the truth is that nathaniel hawthorne thought of himself as a romancer, rather than a novelist.
though it is ironic of him of him to consider himself a romancer rather than a novelist despite of the innocent women killings in the salem witch trials which occurred in colonial massachusetts between 1692 and 1693 .
so you can tailor your resumé to the position
would be the answer. hope this .
