Excerpt
Introduction: The Dolliver Romance. In ?The Dolliver Romance,? only three chapters of which the author lived to complete, we get an intimation as to what would have been the ultimate form given to that romance founded on the Elixir of Life, for which ?Septimius Felton? was the preliminary study. Having abandoned this study, and apparently forsaken the whole scheme in 1862, Hawthorne was moved to renew his meditation upon it in the following year; and as the plan of the romance had now seemingly developed to his satisfaction, he listened to the publisher?s proposal that it should begin its course as a serial story in the ?Atlantic Monthly? for January, 1864--the first instance in which he had attempted such a mode of publication.
