      The Scarlet Letter

      Level B2

      Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, set in 17th century Puritan Boston, tells the dramatic tale of Hester Prynne, the young mother of an illegitimate child, condemned to wear a scarlet letter A, the humiliating symbol that identifies her as an adulteress. In this volume, the story is written in a more simplified language with the use of modern English.

      The text includes an introduction to Hawthorne’s life and works; a variety of activities for the four skills; Pet-style level B1 tests; and dossiers to explore and expand the cultural and historical aspects associated with the story.

      The volume ends with an exit test and provides a recording of some parts of the text.
