A story which Hawthorne describes as "a tale of human frailty and sorrow," The Scarlet Letter, published in 1850, recounts the life of Hester Prynne, a woman who lives in the Puritan settlement of Boston in the seventeenth century. Through Hester's story, Hawthorne explores questions of sin, identity, and the human condition. A classic of the American Romantic period, Hawthorne's novel and the issues about which he writes, remain poignant and relevant to modern readers.
