Written in the winter of 1849, The Scarlet Letter unfolds the story of Hester Prynne, a young woman branded as an adulteress in the harsh Puritan world of 17th-century New England. As Hester calls on her inner strength to transcend her shame, the scarlet letter ceases to be a stigma and finally becomes Hester's symbol of self-affirmation. This dramatic reading heightens the sense of lyric poetry that permeates every line of Nathaniel Hawthorne's great novel. Download and start listening now!

    " Hester was the first female heroin and I enjoyed reading the book, though the language was hard to understand at times. "

    " Loved it! The trascendental writing was a bit tough to get through at times but the recurring themes about people and society give the reader so much to think about. "

    " While the Scarlet Letter had an interesting plot, I just could not get into the book. The ways that Hawthorne wrote every detail in a round about way was anoying, and it was hard for me to stay interested in the book when more than half of every chapter was about describing one simple thing that could be exxplained in less than a paragraph. Despite that it did have a few nice points. These were mainly about a the interesting plot. However, overall, I did not like this book. "

    " I have read this book probably 4-5 times since high school. Each time I read it, I find more and more. So many ways to analyze this piece of literature, and so much symbolism! "
