The Scarlet Letter

Written by Nathaniel Hawthorne | Narrated by Donada Peters
This American classic follows the unforgettable story of Hester Prynne as she overcomes social repression in her Puritan society to become a heroine for her time. The captivating performance from an Audie Award–winning narrator makes this a must-listen!


Introduction by Kathryn Harrison Commentary by Nathaniel Hawthorne, W. D. Howells, and Carl Van Doren

A stark tale of adultery, guilt, and social repression in Puritan New England, The Scarlet Letter is a foundational work of American literature. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s exploration of the dichotomy between the public and private self, internal passion and external convention, gives us the unforgettable Hester Prynne, who discovers strength in the face of ostracism and emerges as a heroine ahead of her time. As Kathryn Harrison points out in her Introduction, Hester is “the herald of the modern heroine.”
