Overview

In seventeenth-century Boston, Hester Prynne shoulders the scorn of her fellow Puritan townsfolk for bearing a child out of wedlock. For her refusal to name the father of her daughter Pearl, Hester is made to wear a scarlet "A" stitched conspicuously upon her dress. But though she bears the stigma of the shame her peers would confer upon her, others feel the guilt for her transgression more acutely--notably the pious Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, the confessor with whom Hester and Pearl's destinies are intimately bound up.
 
First published in 1850, Nathaniel Hawthorne's historical study of guilt and sin has since been lauded as the most important work of fiction by its distinguished author, and a landmark of American literature. This exquisite collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, distinctive stained edging, and decorative marbled endpapers. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers and an artful addition to any home library.

    This book may have been printed on endangered and illegally logg

    This book may have been printed on endangered and illegally logged tree fiber from the Indonesian rainforest. This forest is home to the last 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild, and their habitat is quickly disappearing because of the logging practices of companies like Asia Pulp and Paper. Barnes and Noble publications needs to cut deforestation out of their supply chain by stopping all trade with APP and other forest destroyers!

    First of all, I loved reading The Scarlet Letter. This book was

    First of all, I loved reading The Scarlet Letter. This book was all about a women who committed adultery and had to deal with the consequences of that action. The book starts off describing the prison, and the big heavy wooden doors. It didn't explain anything about a crime that was committed. Then it explained a woman named Hester Prynne who walked out of the jail with a baby girl, Pearl, in her arms and headed toward the scaffold. A scaffold is a raised platform that’s in front of the whole town. There was a large scarlet and gold "A" that was on her chest. Everybody was staring at her, even the children were taunting her. From the "A" on her chest and the harsh words from others, it's obvious that the "A" must mean that she has committed adultery.
    It says that Hester had married a doctor, but he hadn't been to the town yet and no one believed that she was telling the truth. This stranger named Roger Chillingworth comes into town while Hester is on the scaffold. Later we find out that the guy is Hester Prynne's husband, but he changed his name so that no one would know. He becomes the physician of Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, who was gradually getting very ill. No one could figure out why he was sick, but many people thought that Satan was attacking him. Continuing in the book, we find out the real reason for Dimmesdale being ill. He was the man that had committed adultery with Hester. God was convicting him of his sin, because he didn't own up to what he did. Near the end of the book Hester plans to go on a ship with Dimmesdale to get away from the town. The minister finally goes on the scaffold with Pearl and Hester and admits his crime to the whole town. After that, he told Hester and Pearl goodbye and died.
    One huge theme in The Scarlet Letter is the difference between night and day. The events in the book are organized into things that are socially acceptable and those things that must happen secretly. Daylight exposes a person’s actions and makes them vulnerable to punishment. Night, however, hides activities that might not be accepted during the day. One good example for this is when Dimmesdale, Hester and Pearl all stood on the scaffold together. They would have never been able to do that in the daylight, because then everyone would know what Dimmesdale had done.
    Throughout the book, I got more into the book because I wanted to figure out what would happen next. I really liked that the book was suspenseful. Also, I could really feel how Hester was feeling, and how hard it would be to go through everything that she had too.
    With those things, I would definitely recommend someone to read this! This has changed my views on different topics in a good way. Some other books that I liked are all of the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling and the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.
