The Scarlet Letter (Modern Library Classics) by Nathaniel Hawthorne

A stark and allegorical tale of adultery, guilt, and social repression in Puritan New England,The Scarlet Letteris a foundational work of American literature. Nathaniel Hawthornes exploration of the dichotomy between the public and private self, internal passion and external convention, gives us the unforgettable Hester Prynne, who discovers strength in the face of ostracism and emerges as a heroine ahead of her time. As Kathryn Harrison points out in her Introduction, Hester is the herald of the modern American heroine, a mother of such strength and stature that she towers over her progeny much as she does the citizens of Salem.
