The Scarlet Letter (Dramatized)

Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic masterpiece The Scarlet Letter is set in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts, and concerns the public condemnation of Hester Prynne, who bears an illegitimate child. However, the story is not about adultery, nor is it specifically about sin. Rather it traces the effect of actual and symbolic sin on the mind and spirit of each character.

    If you could sum up The Scarlet Letter (Dramatized) in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid
    Straight to the point
    Keeps one's attention


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Scarlet Letter (Dramatized)?

    When after seven hard, lonely years had passed Hester was still in love with Dimmesdale and was willing to sail away with him and make a new life.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Hester Prynne was by far for me the most liked character. She rose from this sin and became stronger and wiser. She in the story became almost a noble woman and a caregiver to all. After time her noble actions and notable character traits became legendary. Yet her positive society status all stemmed from a sin. Not to say that sin is approved of, however in this particular story God turned the sin into something positive and good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Having gone through different situations in my life I almost related to Hester.
    I also at times felt pity for Dimmesdale. The story defiantly struck a chord with me.
