Part of Alma Classics Evergreen series, The Scarlet Letter is here presented with an extensive section on Hawthorne`s life and works. Having been found guilty of adultery, Hester Prynne is forced to wear an embroidered scarlet letter `A` as a punishment for her sin. While her vengeful husband embarks on a quest to discover the identity of her lover, she is left to face the consequences of her infidelity and find a place for herself and her illegitimate child in the hostile environment of seventeenth-century Puritan Boston. Nathaniel Hawthorne`s tense narrative astonished readers with its unparalleled psychological depth when it first appeared, and the novel now stands as one of America`s literary landmarks.
