Sinopse

In an extended Introduction, Hawthorne describes his employment in the Salem Customhouse, and how he purportedly found an old document and a piece of cloth embroidered with the letter "A" in pile of old papers. This fictitious document being the germ of the story that Hawthorne writes, as follows. In June 1642, in the Puritan town of Boston, a crowd gathers to witness the punishment of Hester Prynne, a young woman who has given birth to a baby of unknown parentage. She is required to wear a scarlet "A" on her dress to shame her. "A" stands for adulteress, although this is never said explicitly in the novel. She must stand on the scaffold for three hours, to be exposed to public humiliation, and must wear the scarlet "A" for the rest of her life. As Hester approaches the scaffold, many of the women in the crowd are angered by her beauty and quiet dignity. When demanded and cajoled to name the father of her child, Hester refuses.
