"On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth, surrounded with an elaborate embroidery and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter "A". It was so artisti�cally done, and with so much fertility and gorgeous luxuriance of fancy, that it had all the effect of a last and fitting decoration to the apparel which she wore; and which was of a splendor in ac�cordance with the taste of the age, but greatly beyond what was allowed by the sumptuary regulations of the colony ..."

THE SCARLET LETTER is an 1850 work of fiction in a historical setting, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and is considered to be his best work. Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston, Massachusetts, during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism, sin, and guilt. 20th-century writer D. H. Lawrence said that there could not be a more perfect work of the American imagination than The Scarlet Letter. Henry James once said of the novel, "It is beautiful, admirable, extraordinary; it has in the highest degree that merit which I have spoken of as the mark of Hawthorne's best things-an indefinable purity and lightness of conception...One can often return to it; it supports familiarity and has the inexhaustible charm and mystery of great works of art." The book's immediate and lasting success are due to the way it addresses spiritual and moral issues from a uniquely American standpoint. In 1850, adultery was an extremely risque subject, but because Hawthorne had the support of the New England literary establishment, it passed easily into the realm of appropriate reading. It has been said that this work represents the height of Hawthorne's literary genius, dense with terse descriptions. It remains relevant for its philosophical and psychological depth, and continues to be read as a classic tale on a universal theme.

D. H. Lawrence said that there could be no more perfect work of the American imagination than Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, which makes it ideal material for CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED. Adapted by award-winning graphic novelists P. Craig Russell and Jill Thompson. In addition to his incredible graphic adaptations of operas, the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde, and Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, P. Craig Russell is known for both his collaborations with best-selling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman story "Ramadan") and adaptations of Gaiman's works, such as "Coraline" and "Sandman: The Endless," all of which makes Russell an inspired choice to adapt The Scarlet Letter. Russell broke down the novel into comic book script form as well as page layouts, providing artist Jill Thompson, also a well-know Neil Gaiman collaborator ("Sandman: Brief Lives"), the foundation for her beautifully painted comics pages.

Hawthorne’s story of the disgraced Hester Prynne (who must wear a scarlet “A” as the mark of her adultery), of her illegitimate child, Pearl, and of the righteous minister Arthur Dimmesdale continues to resonate with modern readers. Set in mid-seventeenth-century Boston, this powerful tale of passion, Puritanism, and revenge is one of the foremost classics of American literature. This Broadview edition contains a selection of historical documents that include Hawthorne’s writings on Puritanism, the historical sources of the story, and contemporary reviews of the novel. New to the second edition are an updated critical introduction and bibliography and, in the appendices, additional writings by Margaret Fuller, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Henry James, and William Dean Howells.
