An ardent young woman, her cowardly lover, and her aging, vengeful husband-- these are the central characters in this stark drama of the conflict between passion and convention in the harsh Puritan world of seventeenth-century Boston. Tremendously moving and rich in psychological insight, this tragic novel of shame and redemption reveals Hathorne's concern with New England's past and its influence on American attitudes. From the dramatic illuminations of the struggle between mind and heart, dogman and self-reliance, he fashioned one of the masterpieces of American fiction.
