Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic novel, The Scarlet Letter, has become an American favorite since it was first published in 1850. This "tale of human frailty and sorrow" set in early New England shows the effect of sin on three people—Hester Prynne, Arthur Dimmesdale, and Roger Chillingworth—and deals skillfully with such issues as guilt and redemption, hypocrisy, and shame.
The book also includes a 68-page study guide for those who wish to examine this classic in greater depth.
