How does Hawthrone utilize romanticism to achieve purpose?

The Custom House is the definition of romanticism, as we see and experience Hawthorne's vision of Hester's story in its metamophosis from historical documentation into a personal account. Hawthorne cites that the setting and the inividuals in question can become so much more through an author's imagination. He says that a writer of romance can "dream strange things and make them look like truth."
