      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.
