Publisher Comments:

Hailed by Henry James as " the finest piece    of imaginative writing yet put forth in the    country, " Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet    Letter reaches to our nation's    historical and moral roots for the material of 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    Reverend 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.

Synopsis:

The familiar characters of Hawthorne's dark tale of pride and guilt in colonial New England are given new and added immediacy in the 24 wood engravings by master illustrator Barry Moser.

About the Author

Hawthorne was a novelist and short-story writer, born in Salem, MA. Educated at Bowdon College, he shut himself away for 12 years to learn to write fiction. His first major success was the novel The Scarlet Letter (1850), still the best known of his works. Other books include The House of the Seven Gables (1851), The Snow Image (1852), and a campaign biography of his old schoolfriend, President Franklin Pierce, on whose inauguration Hawthorne became consul at Liverpool (1853--7). Only belatedly recognized in his own country, he continued to write articles and stories, notably those for the Atlantic Monthly, collected as Our Old Home

Do Not dismiss this book because it is "old." This enthralling book captures the realities of the 21st century in the actions during the 1600's. The dynamic, symbolic characters become a part of you and you are a part of them. Symbolically, one of the greatest novels ever written. Nathaniel Hawthorne takes the reader on a dig- inching us along clue by clue, word by word...how fantastic to see foreshadowing, symbolism, and character development displayed so artistically.
