La apasionante historia de una mujer condenada a llevar sobre su ropa una A escarlata, por haber cometido adulterio, no solo era un agudo analisis de la sociedad seudo-moralista en que vivia el autor sino ademas una obra de argumento interesante, con un profundo retrato de personajes y cuya grandeza nadie ha discutido.

Set in Puritan Boston, The Scarlet Letter tells the disturbing tale of Hester Prynne, a woman caught in the conflict between the Puritan ethics of her community and the higher law of her own love. In this tragic tale, we see the struggle between the laws of scripture and those of a different moral authority.

    " For some reason I will always love this book. Maybe it's the Scandal! "

    " I read this twice: once in high school and once in college. It is a cornerstone of U.S. literature; if you've not read it yet, you should, simply because it is used so much in other writing. It is interesting to see the hypocrisy in a "puritanical" society. There is much of that in this country still, though subtler in many ways, in my opinion, but I do believe that as a society overall we are becoming more accepting of our own foibles and learning to relax some mores while beginning to concentrate on what really matters--how we interact with each other everyday: respectfully, with appreciation and gratitude. "

    " Nathaniel Hawthorne was a very interesting style on the Scarlet Letter. His imagery was used very nicely. However I did not like the storyline and the larger vocabulary that he used. It was sometimes hard to follow the book because of the deep storyline. I would not read this book on my own but I enjoyed the symbolism and messages that it delivered. "

    " The story deals with adultery and sin, a subject that isn't that popular these days. This book is very challenging. "

About the Author
Author Nathaniel Hawthorne

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864) was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and made his ambition to be a writer while still a teenager. He graduated from Bowdoin College in Maine, where the poet Longfellow was also a student, and spent several years traveling in New England and writing short stories before his best known novel, The Scarlet Letter, was published in 1850. His writing was not at first financially rewarding, and he worked as measurer and surveyor in the Boston and Salem Custom Houses. In 1853 he was sent to Liverpool as American consul and then lived in Italy before returning to the United States in 1860, where he died in his sleep four years later.
