Overview

Set within the richly imagined confines of Puritan Boston, here is Hawthorne’s classic allegory of shame and sexuality, introduced by the acclaimed critic Harold Bloom: "If we have a national heroine of our version of the Protestant will in America," Bloom writes, "then it must be Hester Prynne, Hawthorne’s triumph."

Praise

"[Nathaniel Hawthorne] recaptured, for his New England, the essence of Greek tragedy." –Malcolm Cowley
