Nazywana pierwsza wielką amerykańską powieścią psychologiczną. Opowiada historię cudzołożnicy, która w purytańskiej Nowej Anglii w XVII wieku zostaje skazana na noszenie znaku hańby: szkarłatnej litery A.
Pozostałe osoby tego dramatu to zrodzona z nieślubnego związku córeczka Pearl oraz dwaj mężczyźni: zdradzony stary mąż i kochanek - młody bogobojny pastor.
Autor z niezwykła przenikliwością ukazał w niej dylematy moralne i religijne, ułomność, a zarazem sile ludzkiego ducha. Książka od 150 lat cieszy się nieprzemijającym powodzeniem - tak jak nieprzemijające są gniew i chęć zemsty, grzech i potrzeba jego odkupienia, miłość i nienawiść.

3.0 Toni FGMAMTC's Reviews > The Scarlet Letter

I like the ...

1.5 The Scarlet Letter
Gah. Quite simply, while this was an semi-appreciable look at the sin and guilt of the characters, it was stunningly dull and I would never voluntarily pick it up again. I did not care a bit about anyone or anything, was minorly concerned by how a lot of things were worded concerning the affair of H...
