Publisher's Summary

The Scarlet Letter
By Nathaniel Hawthorne  

Presented by The Online Stage  

Scorned by her 17th century New England Puritan village, Hester Prynne struggles to raise her precocious daughter, Pearl, who is the result of an affair and whose father is unknown. Despite being forced to wear a scarlet letter A as a brand for her adultery, Hester tries to live a life of repentance and dignity. Pearl's father comes forward as he is struggling under the weight of his own shame and sin. 

The Scarlet Letter is often thought to be Hawthorne's most famous work.
