Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter
An allegorical tale of passion, adultery, guilt, and social repression, Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter introduces readers to Hester Prynne, America's first fictional heroine. Hawthorne's story is a masterpiece of American literature, and this updated volume from the Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations series explores how the author powerfully conveys its theme of the influence of Puritanism on societal attitudes.
