Nathaniel Hawthorne. Retold by Claire Moore. Illustrated by Riccardo Renzi.
Hester Prynne must wear a scarlet letter “A” because she is an adulteress. She lives a simple life with her daughter, Pearl but the evil, old Roger Chillingworth and the tormented Arthur Dimmesdale soon change things.
Set in 17th century Puritan Boston, this is the story of Hester Prynne and her illegitimate daughter Pearl. She is condemned to wear a scarlet letter “A” as punishment for her adultery, but she refuses to reveal the identity of Pearl’s father and they live a solitary life in a small cottage. We meet many characters, including her husband Roger Chillingworth, the young priest Arthur Dimmesdale and Mistress Hibbins. The Scarlet Letter is one of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s most famous novels.
