The Scarlet Letter from the Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne. Considered a masterpiece of American literature and a classic moral study, The Scarlet Letter is set in Puritan Boston. Hester Prynne, a young woman married to a much older man, has arrived in New England before him and has not heard from him for many months. He is presumed lost at sea. She bears an illegitimate child and is sentenced to wear a red A as a badge of shame. By the end of the ensuing drama, it is her husband who is morally degraded, and her lover who is broken by his own sense of guilt. A time-worn mansion in Salem is the setting of The House of the Seven Gables, the story of a distinguished but troubled New England family -- the Pyncheons. A haunting, centuries-old curse, a forceful probing of national and personal guilt, a romance between the young heroine and an attractive stranger -- all intertwine in this work that Henry James declared "the closest approach we are likely to have to the Great American Novel." The text of The Toby Press edition is based on the first editions of these works, published in 1850 and 1851 respectively, and includes Hawthorne's preface to the second edition of The Scarlet Letter. It also features an introductory essay and chronology by Professor Michael J. Kramer, chair of the English department at Bar Ilan University. Book jacket.

A Wonder Book from the Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne. 1852. Hawthorne, who, like Edgar Allan Poe, took a dark view of human nature, was a central figure in the American Renaissance. His best-known works include The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. Hawthorne adapted these fanciful tales for children from classical mythology. Contained within are such memorable stories as The Gorgon's Head, The Chimaera and The Golden Touch, which proved to be quite popular. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty or faded. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
