by Prof. Harold Bloom

Part of the Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations Series

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter Synopsis

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.

Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter Press Reviews

Students preparing research papers and students boning up for class will reach eagerly for these well-designed additions to accessible literary criticism... 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.
