Literary Parlor – The Scarlet Letter and Adam Bede
February 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm$6
Hawthorne’s compelling work The Scarlet Letter published in 1850 shows the ripple effect that two characters’ actions have on their insular New England Colony. Elliot’s novel, Adam Bede was published in 1859. It is a response to The Scarlet Letter and what she observed as the double standards for the behavior of men versus women.
