Description
1853 The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne Puritan Adultery Feminism Literature Americana



The Scarlet Letter "has come to be considered among the most important works in American literature, and indeed among the most important novels written in English."

Literary Encyclopedia



‘The Scarlet Letter’, one of the most famous novels ever written, was first printed in 1850 sold out in only ten days after the first release, and immediately vaulted Nathaniel Hawthorne’s fame. According to Allibone,

“[a novel that] glows with the fire of a suppressed secret, feverish excitement, a fire that neither wanes nor lessens, but keeps at its original scorching heat!”

Hawthorne depicts a woman, a true heroine, who has become an icon in American literature. “She becomes the archetype of the free-thinking American woman grappling with herself and her sexuality in a cold, patriarchal society" (The Guardian).



This 1853 edition is bound with a decorative embossed cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine.
