商品説明

In this prequel to The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne travels unaccompanied from England to Puritan Boston. She is sixteen and has been forced into marriage with a much older man. He has sent her ahead while he finishes business in Europe. Having few expectations of what her new life will bring, Hester quickly finds herself at odds with the harsh Puritan society and longs for someone who shares her intellectual curiosity and love of reading. She struggles to find meaning in the chores and simple-minded conversations with women of the colony and finds herself the object of leering stares from supposedly pious men. When her talent as a seamstress presents the opportunity to make robes for the ministers, Hester becomes acquainted with the young, handsome, and Oxford-educated Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale in whom she finds a kindred spirit. Soon the embers of first love are ignited in Hester’s heart. A tragic event involving two young girls draws Hester and Arthur into a conspiracy that intensifies their emotional connection. When Hester receives news that her aging husband, Roger, is most likely dead, she believes she is free to give her heart to Arthur. Hester Prynne and the minister confess their love to each other, but this relationship can never be revealed to the town, whose strict Puritan beliefs demand that such a union is not allowed. Readers who enjoyed The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne will be intrigued by this novel’s reimagined portrayal of Hester Prynne. For those who have always wondered how the relationship between Hester and Arthur emerged, their curiosity will be satisfied. The backstory of the inception of one of the most famous literary romances is written to honor the characterization that Hawthorne created of Hester as a strong woman who is in conflict with her society and to present the character of Arthur as a man who is desirable to a beautiful woman like Hester. Those familiar with Hawthorne’s masterpiece will notice many allusions to people, events, and symbols from the book, while those who have never read The Scarlet Letter will enjoy this story of a strong female character who seeks to assert her individuality and find love amid a strange and intimidating environment.
