Riassunto: Hatters Castle was written in 1930 but contains an essential truth which is just as relevant today. Its main theme is the hubris of one man and the tragic path it leads him and members of his family down. James Brodie dominates the book as he did his family and, blind to the physical and mental destruction he causes, the tragedies he generates are inevitable. The book was a huge bestseller on its release and it is not difficult to see why. Not only did it address subjects not often dealt with by literature at the time but it created a cast of characters so vivid that the reader becomes part of the world that Cronin creates. Cronin's books are perhaps not as popular as they were when first published. This may be because of their deceptively simple narrative structure, but great novels give us insights into humanity which are not limited to the time they are written. Hatters Castle is a great novel and the reader is changed by reading it.
L'autore: Archibald Joseph Cronin was born in 1896 in Cardross, in the West of Scotland. He was born into a family of mixed Scottish and Irish ancestry and religion. He studied medicine at Glasgow University and practiced in Glasgow, Ireland, Wales and London. He gave up his medical career after the success of his first book and never needed to practice again. He was an immensely successful and influential author. Always maintaining a strong narrative, he addressed issues relating to social welfare, inequalities in health, religion and the changing role of doctors in society. He died in 1981 leaving a legacy of books and films enjoyed by millions all over the world. Much of his work can be seen to contain elements of autobiography. Hatters Castle is no different. It is set in a part of Scotland he knew intimately and with family resonances that are clear to discern, not least perhaps the fact that Cronin?s grandfather was a hatter.
