Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume presents the authoritative Centenary Edition text of Hawthorne's classic 1851 novel, along with critical essays that read The Scarlet Letter from contemporary reader-response, psychoanalytic, feminist, and new historicist perspectives. Three brief additional essays demonstrate how several critical perspectives can be combined. As in the first edition, the text and essays are complemented by biographical and critical introductions, bibliographies, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms. Five of the seven essays are new to the second edition, as is a selection of cultural documents and illustrations.
