The Scarlet Letter

by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Publicly disgraced and ostracized, Hester Prynne draws on her inner strength and certainty of spirit to emerge as the first true heroine of American fiction.

Sin and Punishment in Puritan Boston, Jun 22, 2015
by FanOfTimeLifeBooks

"Written in 1850 and set in Puritan Boston in the 1600s, The Scarlet Letter tells the story of Hester Prynne and her punishment for committing adultery. The novel develops the themes of sin, punishment, isolation, and redemption. The letter A worn by Hester Prynne means adultery but could also mean able or afflicted depending on how one interprets the book. I liked this story very much but I found the writing style a bit ponderous at times. Still, this is a good historical novel dealing with sin and suffering in a historical context."

Women's Rights in Puritan Times, Dec 3, 2009
by sarab

"I am not done with the book - I am about half-way through. But I am enjoying this book even though the book is a realistic view of women's rights set during the 1600's America. It is not easy reading but the book has given me topics to review and contemplate."

Great, Oct 9, 2007
by Selina

"I really loved this book in college. Hester really is a hero readers can admire. She shows more courage and dignity than any of the male characters in the book. Certainly she has flaws, but her strength over shadows them. This story of love and redemption is a classic tale that should be read by everyone."
