The Scarlet Letter Book Summary

The story begins in seventeenth - century Salem, Massachusetts, then a Puritan settlement. A young woman, Hester Prynne, is led from the town prison with her infant daughter, Pearl, in her arms and the scarlet letter “A” on her breast. The scarlet letter “A” represents the act of adultery that she has committed; it is to be a symbol of her sin for all to see. She will not reveal her lover’s identity, however, and the scarlet letter, along with her public shaming, is her punishment for her sin and her secrecy.

  • Before you read this, don’t. (Tatorgator7)

    I had to read this book for my advanced English class and I can honestly say it is the worst book I have ever read. The archaic writing style and the confusing sentence structure made it very difficult to comprehend. The vocabulary used and the way Hawthorne incorporated symbolism into almost all aspects of the book detracted from the main idea. Would not recommend.
  • I hate this dumb book (Dan gangsta bish lova)

    I bought this book thinking "hey, I could use a god read on the crapper". So I bought it. As soon as I opened this book poop could not stop flying out my crack.

    Slow. Boring, absurd stream on consciousness sections, hyper-symbolism detracts from simply reading. Painful at times.

    Sad but intriguing story. It was long yet the actual events were not that many. And very sad. I am not a book person, this is my 1st book since 5 or 8years of not reading one out of pleasure. I think it was a book that will try to teach you a lesson. I won't read it again. But will talk about it w joy :)

    Brilliant. You can easily lose yourself reading this book for hours once you get past the first few chapters, and has an ending so magnificent that it would encourage you to write a good review about it, and it is free, and my dog is barking in her sleep. I highly recommend it.

    Very good book!. Anyone who enjoys the classics and good writing will like this book. It is very moving for those who can discern the deeper meanings. A bit overly descriptive, but then again you have to look at the time it was written. Over all a very good book!
