message 1: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Nathaniel Hawthorne's Young Goodman Brown (33) is a single story from the collection Twice-Told Tales (17). I think the former should be removed.


message 2: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Correction: Young Goodman Brown is from Mosses From an Old Manse (1846), which is on the 1840s list.


message 3: by Paul (new)

Paul Bowes Faust: First Part was published in 1808 and is #1 on the 1800s decade list. Faust Part Two was published in 1832. I have deleted the former and added the latter.


message 4: by Tristrom (new)

Tristrom Cooke I don't think "Frankenstein" should be on this list. It is already on the 1810s list, as it was first published in 1818. According to Wikipedia, a single volume, heavily revised version (the most frequently read today) was released in 1831 though.

Also, "Lost Illusions" is on the 1840s list. It was originally released as three successive volumes in 1837, 1839 and 1843. However, the third volume (and hence the complete work) was not available until the 1840s.

This is also true of the sequel, "Scenes of a Courtesan's Life" (aka "A Harlot High and Low"). Wikipedia says the first volume was released in 1838, with the other four volumes in the 1840s.
