The Scarlet Letter (Monarch Notes) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The Scarlet Letter is an excellent book, but help is often needed to point out or explain the countless symbols used throughout the book. Monarch Notes is wonderful and helps unpack all of Hawthorne's meanings in a way that is easy to understand and will make The Scarlet Letter more enjoyable. Very useful as a reference source for essays and papers.
This is a classic view of now a days. It is written about the Puritans but has all the prejudices of today. I think Hester is a model for womens writes. She stands up for what she believes in. I love the way Hawthorne describes everything so perfectly, but also leaves you to be able to read between the lines and draw your own conclustions. I have read this book more then once and it gets better each time I read it. If you ask me I didn't think it was long enough.
