The Scarlet Letter
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
Hailed by Henry James as the, "finest piece of imaginative writing yet put forth in the country," Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter reaches to our nation's historical and moral roots for the material of a great tragedy. Set in an early New England colony, the novel shows the terrible impact a single, passionate act has on the lives of three members of the community: the defiant Hester Prynne; the fiery, tortured Reverand Dimmesdale; and the obsessed, vengeful Chillingworth. With The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne became the first American novelist to forge from our Puritan heritage a universal classic, a masterful exploration of humanity's unending struggle with sin, guilt, and pride.
