9780486280486: The Scarlet Letter (Dover Thrift Editions)

First published in 1850, The Scarlet Letter is Nathaniel Hawthorne's masterpiece and one of the greatest American novels. Its themes of sin, guilt, and redemption, woven through a story of adultery in the early days of the Massachusetts Colony, are revealed with remarkable psychological penetration and understanding of the human heart.
Hester Prynne is the adulteress, forced by the Puritan community to wear a scarlet letter A on the breast of her gown. Arthur Dimmesdale, the minister and the secret father of her child, Pearl, struggles with the agony of conscience and his own weakness. Roger Chillingworth, Hester's husband, revenges himself on Dimmesdale by calculating assaults on the frail mental state of the conscience-stricken cleric. The result is an American tragedy of stark power and emotional depth that has mesmerized critics and readers for nearly a century and a half.
A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.

Book Description Dover Publications Inc., United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
