Scarlet Letter, The Manga Edition
John Wiley & Sons, Incorporated, Feb 23, 2009 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 192 pages
The Scarlet Letter: The Manga Edition will be a hit with both manga readers and in the classroom. A four-page essay at the beginning ties the novel and manga together; the rest of the book is taken up with the manga novel itself. So, there should be strong carryover between those people who are manga readers and those teachers/students who want a new and unique way to read the plays.
Our The Scarlet Letter manga is true to the original context of the play--we don't take Hester and Pearl and set them in a setting/time that's not relevant to Hawthorne's original and intended time/setting. You could say that ours is "true" to the novel.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. I really enjoyed this Manga. It stuck closely to the original but made it more accessible to reality anyone. The illustrations are superb and detailed. Recommended. Read full review
