Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Hawthorne's complex approach to the human condition.Arguably Nathaniel Hawthorne's most famous novel, The Scarlet Letter probes the very root of the age-old question, "What is good?" Can there be redemption in a society where the only good is the avoidance of sin? Through the characters of the beautiful and independent Hester Prynne, the pious yet guilt-ridden Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, and the vengeance-obsessed Roger Chillingworth, Hawthorne explores the range of human response to sin and the deadly consequences of the inability to forgive oneself and others. In The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne peers into the shadows of the soul to reveal the doubt, fear, and guilt that, try as we might to deny them, form the foundations of our existence.

Book The Office of The Scarlet Letter

Download or read book The Office of The Scarlet Letter written by Sacvan Bercovitch and published by Transaction Publishers. This book was released on 2013-04-30 with total page 212 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The Scarlet Letter has proved our most enduring classic," writes Sacvan Bercovitch, "because it is the liberal example par excellence of art as ideological mimesis. To understand the office of the A is to see how culture empowers symbolic form, including forms of dissent, and how symbols participate in the dynamics of culture, including the dynamics of constraint." With an approach that both reflects and contests developments in literary studies, Bercovitch explores these connections from two perspectives: first, he examines a historical reading of the novel’s unities; and then, a rhetorical analysis of key mid-nineteenth-century issues, at home and abroad. In order to highlight the relation between rhetoric and history, he focuses on the point at which the scarlet letter does its office at last, the moment when Hester decides to come home to America. In The Office of "The Scarlet Letter," Bercovitch argues that the process by which the United States usurped "America" for itself, symbolically, is also the process by which liberalism established political and economic dominance. In the course of his study, he offers sustained discussions of Hawthorne’s irony and ambiguity, of aesthetic and social strategies of cohesion, and of the conundrums of liberal dissent. Winner of the Modern Language Association’s James Russell Lowe prize, The Office of "The Scarlet Letter" provides a theoretical redefinition of the function of symbolism in culture and an exemplary literary-ideological reading of a major text.

  • Publisher : Wordsworth Editions
  • Release : 1992
  • ISBN : 9781853260292
  • Pages : 234 pages

Download or read book The Scarlet Letter written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and published by Wordsworth Editions. This book was released on 1992 with total page 234 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "'Thou and thine, Hester Prynne, belong to me.' With these chilling words a husband claims his wife after a two-year absence. But the child she clutches is not his, and Hester must wear a scarlet 'A' upon her breast, the sin of adultery visible to all. Under an assumed name her husband begins his search for her lover, determined to expose what Hester is equally determined to protect. Defiant and proud, Hester witnesses the degradation of two very different men, as moral codes and legal imperatives painfully collide." "Set in the Puritan community of seventeenth-century Boston, The Scarlet Letter also sheds light on the nineteenth century in which it was written, as Hawthorne explores his ambivalent relations with his Puritan forebears. The text of this edition is taken from the Centenary Edition of Hawthorne's works, the most authoritative critical edition."--BOOK JACKET.

Book Surviving the Scarlet Letter

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Surviving the Scarlet Letter is a first-hand account of an affair. With honesty, Karen Melville Thacker invites you to peek into the rarely publicized emotions, thoughts, and actions of a woman as she walks through an adulterous encounter. The experience not only changes her life forever, but imprints upon her heart the realization that we are all incredibly fragile and in desperate need of both understanding and God’s healing grace.

This book is not reserved solely for those affected by an affair, but anyone who feels shame as the result of choices made. This is a narrative that details the realities of life bathed in the grace of God.
