Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne, Nina Baym, Thomas E. Connolly

Our exchange student from Denmark had his first day of school today. His junior English class is going start reading The Scarlet Letter. Way to kill a teen's desire to read, local High School! We feel sorry for the kid and recommended the Cliff notes.

 

On the other hand, we had a lively dinner table discussion on misogyny and if this was the worst book ever written and what other contenders for that title also claimed to be great literature.
