About this Recording

HAWTHORNE, N.: Scarlet Letter (The) (Abridged)

The Scarlet Letter is one of the great classics of American literature, Set in the harsh Puritan environment of seventeenth century Boston, it describes the plight of Hester Prynne, an independent-minded woman who stands alone against society. Having given birth to a child after an illicit affair, she refuses to name the father and is forced to wear the letter ‘A’ for Adulteress embroidered on her dress.
