The Scarlet Letter
Nathaniel Hawthorne
68 Installments

Widowed Hester Prynne, isolated in a new country, seeks comfort in the arms of a lover. When she gives birth to a child, her shame is made public and in the unforgiving moral atmosphere of colonial Massachusetts she is made to suffer for her desires. At once a highly readable tale and a penetrating portrayal of sin, guilt, and redemption.

I'd read this in High School, but hadn't thought about it until my BF assigned it to his high school AP English class. My comprehension level this time was a lot higher, and I actually really enjoyed reading it. Also a surprizingly quick read, thanks to Daily Lit.

I understand that the overly-heavy and purple prose was the way things were written back then but it kind of loses kick for a modern audience. I liked how the story built towards the climax and the character of Pearl. I think in general The Scarlet Letter was filled with some beautiful passages but the the long-windedness really took away from the emotional kick of the story.
