The persecution of a certain group of people has been prevalent throughout history. Some novels are capable of capturing this type of treatment and turning it into something true special. This is exactly how The Scarlet Letter has obtained its success. The novel, which was originally written in 1850, tells the story of a woman by the name of Hester Prynne. This 17th female is cursed to wear the scarlet letter A, because she has been persecuted for adultery. Her struggle and attempt to reclaim her dignity is a tale, which is uplifting and timeless.
