The Marble Faun; or, The Romance of Monte Beni, novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne, published in 1860. It is one of the works Hawthorne called romances-"unrealistic" stories in exotic settings. The novel's central metaphor is a statue of a faun by Praxiteles that Hawthorne had seen in Rome. In the faun's fusing of animal and human characteristics, Hawthorne found an allegory of the fall of man from amoral innocence to the knowledge of good and evil, a theme that often had been assumed in his earlier works but that here received direct and philosophic treatment
