    EBOOK DOWNLOAD The Scarlet Letter It's great to finally get back to the classics It's been far too long since I read a book with careful intensity noting throwaway lines that are likely to show up on a multiple choice or short answer test that misses the main themes of a book entirely while managing to ask lots of uestions like In the fourth chapter what kind of shoes was character you don't even remember wearing?I was thinking maybe it would be nice to read a bo

The Scarlet Letter review ✓ 3 The Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne A Classic Work of Romantic Fiction The Scarlet Letter is an 1850 romantic work of fiction in a historical setting written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and is considered to be his magnum opus Set in 17th century Puritan Boston Massachusetts during the years 1642 to 1649 it tells the story of Hester Prynne who conceives a daughter through an affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity Throughout the book Hawthorne explores themes of legalism sin and guilt It was long thought that Hawthorne originally planned The Scarlet Letter to be a shorter novelette which was part of a collection to be named Old Time Legends and that his publisher James Thomas Fields convinced him to expand the work to a full length novel This is not true Fields persuaded Hawthorne to publish The Scarlet Letter alone along with the earlier completed Custom House essay but he had nothing to do with the length of the. I found my old high school review of this book Here s a little bit of my assessment Apologiese in advance If there is a hell Hawthorne is the devil s sidekick and the first thing you re given after the stark realization that you re in hell on fire and this is going to last forever is this book And you have to do a 10 page paper praising the wondrous virtues of this massive waste of time And after you ve finished writing in your own blood mind you your stupid paper you are given another essay topic dealing with this same insipid book Congratulations this is what you ll be doing for eternityHaha I really DID NOT LIKE this book in HS and it s part of the reason why I have always been apprehensive about US literature especially the classicsNow I m a TEACHER and I m going to revisit this monolith of high school trauma and I ll go into it with as much of an open mind as possible I did the same thing with Old Man and the Sea I remember loathing that book when I read it my freshmen year and the second time around I LIKED ITI did not like either book because my teachers did not do a good job of selling it to me There was little to no background no setup no explanation as to why we should read this other than ED Hirsch said you have to so go read itTeaching 101 never have your students read a book that you yourself do not enjoy I think my teachers disliked both books and it rubbed off on their students

The Scarlet Letter review ✓ 3 Story Hawthorne's wife Sophia later challenged Fields' claims a little inexactly he has made the absurd boast that he was the sole cause of the Scarlet Letter being published She noted that her husband's friend Edwin Percy Whipple a critic approached Fields to consider its publication The manuscript was written at the Peter Edgerley House in Salem Massachusetts still standing as a private residence at 14 Mall Street It was the last Salem home where the Hawthorne family lived The Scarlet Letter was published as a novel in the spring of 1850 by Ticknor Fields beginning Hawthorne's most lucrative period When he delivered the final pages to Fields in February 1850 Hawthorne said that some portions of the book are powerfully written but doubted it would be popular In fact the book was an instant best seller though over fourteen years it brought its author only 1500 Its initial publication brought wide protest from natives of Salem who did not a.

The Scarlet Letter review ✓ 3 Pprove of how Hawthorne had depicted them in his introduction The Custom House A 2500 copy second edition of The Scarlet Letter included a preface by Hawthorne dated March 30 1850 that stated he had decided to reprint his introduction without the change of a word The only remarkable features of the sketch are its frank and genuine good humor As to enmity or ill feeling of any kind personal or political he utterly disclaims such motives The Scarlet Letter was also one of the first mass produced books in America In the mid nineteenth century bookbinders of home grown literature typically hand made their books and sold them in small uantities The first mechanized printing of The Scarlet Letter 2500 volumes sold out within ten days and was widely read and discussed to an extent not much experienced in the young country up until that time Copies of the first edition are often sought by collectors as rare books and may fetch up to around 18000 U. Maybe 25 stars if I were just rating this on how much I actually enjoyed reading it The 40 page Custom House introduction was pure pain to plow through no lie and there are a lot of slow spots where Hawthorne gets hung up in the details But 5 stars for the richness of Hawthorne s language the intriguing symbolism and the way he delves into the human heart So I ll compromise at 4 starsThe Custom House part which is just a framing device seriously I ll skip it if I ever read this again tells of a man who finds the fateful scrap of red cloth a scarlet A beautifully embroidered with gold thread along with a 200 year old manuscript telling the story of Hester Prynne This man then retells her story In the mid 1600s Boston is a Puritan settlement so adultery was a huge scandal Hester Prynne is led out of jail in front of a crowd her baby daughter Pearl in her arms and with the scarlet A on her dress standing for Adultress She s put in a scaffold and publicly shamed Her elderly husband has been missing for years so it s clear he s not the father of Pearl But Hester resolutely refuses to name the actual father What she doesn t realize at first is that her long lost husband is in the crowd hiding his identity from everyone Going by the name of Roger Chillingworth shivers he settles in and patiently waits for his chance for revengeBoston officials try to take Pearl away from Hester but a young minister Arthur Dimmesdale pleads her case The popular Dimmesdale has his own problems a mysterious wasting disease and heart trouble Maybe just maybe his problems are mostly psychological And then the secretly suspicious Chillingworth decides to befriend Dimmesdale The use of a scarlet letter on clothing to publicly brand adulterers is a historic fact but Hawthorne turns it into a potent symbol I loved this take on it from an excellent critical review and analysis in The AtlanticWe may realize its value in the present case by imagining the book with the scarlet letter omitted It is not practically essential to the plot But the scarlet letter uplifts the theme from the material to the spiritual level It is the concentration and type of the whole argument It transmutes the prose into poetry It serves as a formula for the conveyance of ideas otherwise too subtle for words as well as to enhance the gloomy picturesueness of the moral scenery It burns upon its wearer s breast it casts a lurid glow along her pathway it isolates her among mankind and is at the same time the mystic talisman to reveal to her the guilt hidden in other heartsThe entire story each character each event people s appearances even objects is filled with symbolism Light and darkness sin and secrecy suffering and redemption all have a role It can be a little or a lot hard to wade through the old fashioned language and viewpoint of The Scarlet Letter but it really rewards the reader who s willing to look deeper
