A Letra Escarlate

A Letra Escarlate

Na rígida comunidade puritana de Boston do século XVII, a jovem Hester Prynne tem uma relação adúltera que termina com o nascimento de uma criança ilegítima. Desonrada e renegada publicamente, ela é obrigada a levar sempre a letra “A” de adúltera bordada em seu peito. Hester, primeira autêntica heroína da literatura norte-americana, se vale de sua força interior e de sua convicção de espírito para criar a filha sozinha, lidar com a volta do marido e proteger o segredo acerca da identidade de seu amante.
Aclamado desde seu lançamento como um clássico, A letra escarlate é um retrato dramático e comovente da submissão e da resistência às normas sociais, da paixão e da fragilidade humanas, e uma das obras-primas da literatura mundial.
