An ardent young woman, her cowardly lover, and her aging, vengeful husband—these are the central characters in this stark drama of the conflict between passion and convention in the harsh, Puritan world of seventeenth-century Boston. Tremendously moving and rich in psychological insight, this tragic novel of shame and redemption reveals Hawthorne's concern with New England's past and its influence on American attitudes. From his dramatic illumination of the struggle between mind and heart, dogma and self-reliance, he fashioned one of the masterpieces of fiction.

This edition includes an Introduction by Brenda Wineapple, an early Hawthorne story which contains the germ of The Scarlet Letter, a new afterword by Regina Barreca, and a bibliography. This is part of Hewitt's Lightning Literature & Composition curriculum. See Related Items below.
