Throwback Thursday: The Scarlet Letter is Published March 16, 1850

On this day in 1850, The Scarlet Letter was published by American Author Nathaniel Hawthorne. The book was an immediate hit and is considered Hawthorne’s “masterwork.”

The Scarlet Letter at a Glance (Cliff Notes): “Adulteress Hester Prynne must wear a scarlet A to mark her shame. Her lover, Arthur Dimmesdale, remains unidentified and is wracked with guilt, while her husband, Roger Chillingworth, seeks revenge. The Scarlet Letter’s symbolism helps create a powerful drama in Puritan Boston: a kiss, evil, sin, nature, the scarlet letter, and the punishing scaffold. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s masterpiece is a classic example of the human conflict between emotion and intellect.”
