Descriptions du produit

Thou and thine, Hester Prynne, belong to me.' With these chilling words a husband claims his wife after a two-year absence. But the child she clutches is not his, and Hester must wear a scarlet 'A' upon her breast, the sin of adultery visible to all. Under an assumed name her husband begins his search for her lover, determined to expose what Hester is equally determined to protect. Defiant and proud, Hester witnesses the degradation of two very different men, as moral codes and legal imperatives painfully collide. Set in the Puritan community of seventeenth-century Boston, The Scarlet Letter also sheds light on the nineteenth-century in which it was written, as Hawthorne explores his ambivalent relations with his Puritan forebears. The text of this edition is taken from the Centenary Edition of Hawthorne's works, the most authoritative critical edition. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Got me through American Lit with ease 15 février 2013
Par Terri Lynne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I tend to get scared when reading classic literature. I fear I will not understand the language, what makes the characters, and the subtle undertones that make these books so immortal.
The Dover Thrift Study Edition makes everything so easy to understand while still giving the reader a chance to find their own way through the text.
The book itself is in the front, but the back holds character descriptions as they come in, chapter (or chapters) summaries and then an analysis of what has happened and what it means in the bigger picture.
Whenever I must read a classic my go to is to see if they have it in a Dover Thrift Study Edition. It makes my life so much easier and I also get so much more out of the book than if I had just read it alone.

It's the book, proper text end everything. Maybe a little flimsy but I was not particularly bothered by it. The notes in the back are thorough and informative.

Best assist for high school students 28 janvier 2014
Par GEN - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I teach a literary unit like "The Scarlet Letter" to high school students, they have a very difficult time following the nuances of the story. Hawthorne's love of metaphor, creative adjectives, large vocabulary, and lengthy 19th century sentences obscure rather thoroughly the content. Some study guides I have used are aimed at college level adults, but the Dover Thrift Editions that I have used are written for the high school level.

This study edition provides the complete text of the book, followed by a study guide that offers section-by-section synopses, analyses, study questions with answers, and essay topics. I can recommend this book without reservation to anyone who wants to understand as well as read "The Scarlet Letter."

Puritanism on Fire 29 août 2013
Par Be Well - Publié sur Amazon.com

This truly is a classic. The Thrift Study Edition helps the reader figure out what is going on at the more subtle (read symbolic, allegorical, etc...) levels. The early American English is hard to read at first, but once one gives it the time and thought it deserves, one is blown away by the descriptions and observations the author makes. The Scarlett Letter really is a tribute to Anne Hutchinson as well as the author's attempt to exonerate his Puritan past, whereby one of his ancestors condemned a couple of Puritans to death for the charge of practicing with craft. Yes, this stuff really did happen. Anne Hutchinson is a free thinker who challenged harsh Puritan practices and was expelled from her Boston Puritan home for it. Hester Prynne, the protagonist, too becomes a free thinker through the ordeal of atoning for the sin of adultery -- hence the Scarlet Letter. A great book -- totally worthwhile. P.S. There are three adult figures of note -- who is the real sinner among them according to Hawthorne?
