The Scarlet Letter (Roads Classics)

Nathaniel Hawthorne

PAPERBACK

November 20, 2014

This powerful gothic drama, set in Puritan Boston, tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair with an unnamed man. Branded with a scarlet A, and isolated in a strict conformist community intent on pushing her to the fringes of this wild and emerging country, Hester struggles to forge a new, dignified exis­tence with her daughter. Then a mysterious individual arrives, intent on unmasking her companion. The Scarlet Letters themes of hypocrisy, womens role in society and the destructive power of guilt are as relevant as ever, making Hester Prynne a classic heroine with a great deal to say to the twenty-first- century reader.

About the Cover: Under the scrutinising gaze of the uniform crowd around her, Hester and her daughter stand out as marked individuals.
