The Scarlet Letter

4.99

For over 150 years, Nathaniel Hawthorne's masterpiece The Scarlet Letter has captivated critics and readers alike.

 Published in 1850, it is considered a masterpiece of American literature and a classic moral study of Puritanism with its twisted gender politics and hypocrisy, and a woman’s strength of character in the face of public condemnation.

 One of the finest early American novels, its themes of sin, guilt, and redemption, revealed through a story of adultery in the early days of the Massachusetts Colony, are woven with remarkable psychological penetration and understanding of the human heart.

NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE (1804-1864), one of the greatest authors of the nineteenth century, transformed the art of fiction. The author of numerous novels and short stories, including The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables, he was an acknowledged master of the form, and admired for his explorations of ancestral sin, guilt, and the concept of justice.
