    The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, magnum opus, tells the story of Hester Prynne, who gives birth two years after separation from her husband and is condemned to wear the scarlet letter A on her breast as punishment for her adultery. She resists all attempts of the 17th century Boston clergy to make her reveal the name of her child’s father while she struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity.

    Story

    I felt required to read this because it is a part of history. I don't like the repressive-ness of the described society. Found it hard to take. If that sticks in your craw avoid this. But in it's defense it is historically a significant piece of literature that paints a portrait of human nature seeking free air. In that way I guess it is inspiring. On the other hand (no pun intended) I do not find it necessary to read explicit description of knife cuts to the fingers while cooking to process food safely. This is a bit obtuse but I did not find it an uplifting story. Sorry Nate.
