The A Word

On this day in 1850  The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne was published.

Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston,  during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of sin, and guilt.
