The Marble Faun: Or, The Romance of Monte Beni is a Gothic novel written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and originally published in 1860.

The story is set in a fantastical Italy, shortly before the outbreak of the American Civil War, and follows a group of young American bohemians and artists living in Europe where they fight, fall in love and have a series of adventures.

The group meet a count, Donatello, in the city of Rome, who falls in love with the beautiful Miriam. However, she has had a tortuous relationship in the past and he follows her wherever she goes.

One night Donatello surprises Miriam's stalker and throws him off a cliff... and Hilda, Miriam's friend, witnesses the incident...

With a gothic atmosphere, full of mystery and even supernatural events, this is a beautiful, romantic and somewhat bizarre story.

"Four individuals, in whose fortunes we should be glad to interest the reader, happened to be standing in one of the saloons of the sculpture-gallery in the Capitol at Rome."
