Description


This perennially popular Norton Critical Edition has been revised to reflect the most current scholarly approaches to The Scarlet Letter—Hawthorne’s most widely read novel—as well as to the five short prose works—“Mrs. Hutchinson,” “Endicott and the Red Cross,” “Young Goodman Brown,” “The Minister’s Black Veil,” and “The Birth-mark”—that closely relate to the 1850 novel.


This Second Norton Critical Edition also includes:

· Revised and expanded explanatory footnotes, a new preface, and a note on the text by Leland S. Person.

· Key passages from Hawthorne’s notebooks and letters that suggest the close relationship between his private and public writings

· Seven new critical essays by Brook Thomas, Michael Ryan, Thomas R. Mitchell, Jay Grossman, Jamie Barlowe, John Ronan, and John F. Birk.

· A Chronology and revised and expanded Selected Bibliography.
