美国浪漫主义的权威之作,美国心理分析小说的开山之篇。

本书讲述了发生在北美殖民时期的恋爱悲剧。女主人公海丝特·白兰嫁给了医生奇灵渥斯,他们之间却没有爱情。在孤独中白兰与牧师丁梅斯代尔相恋并生下女儿珠儿。白兰被当众惩罚,戴上标志“通奸”的红色A字示众。然而白兰坚贞不屈,拒不说出孩子的父亲。小说惯用象征手法,人物、情节和语言都颇具主观想象色彩,在描写中又常把人的心理活动和直觉放在首位。作品揭露了社会的残酷、宗教的欺骗和道德的虚伪。

The Scarlet Letter is an 1850 work of fiction in a historical setting, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The book is considered to be his "masterwork". Set in 17th-century Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony, during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism, sin, and guilt.

霍桑,19世纪前半期美国伟大的小说家,其小说在思想内容和艺术手法上都独具一格,他力图借助想象去挖掘历史素材,以表面温和而实质犀利的笔锋暴露黑暗、讽刺邪恶、揭示真理。他是一位真正富有个性与创造力的作家,因而一直享誉英美和世界文坛,至今盛名不衰。

Nathaniel Hawthorne (born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist, dark romantic, and short story writer. Much of Hawthorne's writing centers on New England, many works featuring moral allegories with a Puritan inspiration. His fiction works are considered part of the Romantic movement and, more specifically, dark romanticism. His themes often center on the inherent evil and sin of humanity, and his works often have moral messages and deep psychological complexity. His published works include novels, short stories, and a biography of his college friend Franklin Pierce.

塞勒姆,我的家乡,是一个平静的地方,没有太多的船只在这里的港口停靠,但在上个世纪我们和英国开战之前,这个港口还挺繁忙的。如今,船只都沿着海岸南下,驶向波士顿或纽约的大港口了。塞勒姆旧港口建筑物周围的街道上蔓生着野草。

Salem, my home town, is a quiet place, and not many ships call at the port here, though in the last century, before the war within Britain, the port was often busy. Now the ships go down the coast to the great seaports of Boston or New York, and grass grows in the streets around the old port buildings in Salem.
