In a sleepy little New England village stands a dark weather beaten many gabled house This brooding mansion is haunted by a centuries old curse that casts the shadow of ancestral sin upon the last four members of the distinctive Pyncheon family of Salem The greed and haughty pride of the Pyncheon family through the generations is mirrored in the gloomy decay of their seven gabled mansion where the family s enfeebled and impoverished relations now live Mysterious deaths threaten the living Musty documents nestle behind hidden panels carrying the secret of the family s salvation or its downfall A brilliant intertwining of the popular the symbolic and the historical Hawthorne s Gothic Romance is a powerful exploration of personal and national guilt a work that Henry James declared the closest approach we are likely to have to the Great American Novel, The text of The Scarlet Letter is based on the third edition the first set in stereotype plates and the basis of subsequent printings in Hawthorne s lifetime An invaluable selection of contextual material includes five Hawthorne stories that are closely related to The Scarlet Letter along with relevant letters and notebook entries A substantial excerpt from Hawthorne s campaign biography of Franklin Pierce offers a revealing glimpse at Hawthorne s political thought especially regarding slavery and abolition Criticism provides a comprehensive overview of early and modern commentary on The Scarlet Letter and the stories in this edition including nineteenth century reviews of the novel and critical essays by Robert S Levine Nina Baym Larry J Reynolds and Jean Fagan Yellin A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included, Part fairy tale part Gothic horror story Rappaccini s Daughter is an inspired tale of creation and control Giovanni Guasconti a student at the University of Padua is enchanted to discover a nearby garden of the most exquisite beauty In it abides a young woman perhaps the most beautiful Giovanni has ever seen yet as he looks out from an upstairs window he soon learns that the garden and the matchless Beatrice are not the work of Mother Nature but rather the result of a monstrous abomination of creativity, The sexton stood in the porch of Milford meeting house pulling busily at the bell rope The old people of the village came stooping along the street Children with bright faces tripped merrily beside their parents or mimicked a graver gait in the conscious dignity of their Sunday clothes Spruce bachelors looked sidelong at the pretty maidens and fancied that the Sabbath sunshine made them prettier than on week days When the throng had mostly streamed into the porch the sexton began to toll the bell keeping his eye on the Reverend Mr Hoopers door The first glimpse of the clergymans figure was the signal for the bell to cease its summons
