The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathaniel_Hawthorne) and published in 1850, explores sin, guilt, hypocrisy, religion and the individual's relationship to society. Set in 17th-century Salem, Massachusetts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salem,_Massachusetts), it tells the story of Hester Prynne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hester_Prynne), who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair and struggles to create a new life of dignity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dignity) while being ostracized by her community.
