Summary, etc.: Featuring an appendix of discussion questions, the Diversion Classics edition is ideal for use in book groups and classrooms. After Hester Prynne confesses to the crime of adultery, she dons the scarlet letter A that marks her as a sinner. But also guilty in this story are Reverend Dimmesdale, the minister who sinfully fathered Hester's child, and Chillingworth, Hester's estranged husband who is bent on revenge. A tale of morality, religion, and redemption, THE SCARLET LETTER is one of Nathaniel Hawthorne's most brilliant and controversial works.
