Synopsis

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter by Prof. Harold Bloom

An allegorical tale of passion, adultery, guilt, and social repression, Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter introduces readers to Hester Prynne, America's first fictional heroine. Hawthorne's story is a masterpiece of American fiction, and this updated volume from the Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations series explores how the author powerfully conveys its theme of the puritanical influence on societal attitudes.

Reviews

Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work.
