Description

Hester Prynne is a beautiful young woman. She is also an outcast. In the eyes of her neighbours she has committed an unforgivable sin. Everyone knows that her little daughter Pearl is the product of an illicit affair but no one knows the identity of Pearl’s father. Hester’s refusal to name him brings more condemnation upon her. But she stands strong in the face of public scorn, even when she is forced to wear the sign of her shame sewn onto her clothes: the scarlet letter “A” for “Adulteress.”The story of Hester Prynne–found out in adultery, pilloried by her Puritan community, and abandoned, in different ways, by both her partner in sin and her vengeance-seeking husband–possesses a reality heightened by Hawthorne’s pure human sympathy and his unmixed devotion to his supposedly fallen but fundamentally innocent heroine. In its moral force and the beauty of its conciliations, The Scarlet Letter rightly deserves its stature as the first great novel written by an American, the novel that announced an American literature equal to any in the world.

display_descriptionPart of the Legend Classics series No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true. The Scarlet Letter is a literary landmark, chronicling Hester Prynne's affair and the punishment she receives from the Puritan Colony in which she resides. One of the first mass-produced books in America, Nathaniel Hawthorne's masterpiece is a chilling exploration of shame, social stigma, and society's unquenchable thirst for revenge. This cautionary tale, drenched in symbolism and psychological complexity, forces the reader to consider if guilt, sin, and evil are inherent in all of us. A testament to the novels staying power, it is revered and referenced across the artistic spectrum; from film, literature, and television to music, opera, and the theatre; from D. H. Lawrence and Henry James to Childish Gambino and Taylor Swift.
