Reviewer: Julian Hawthorne, (Atlantic Monthly)"THE SCARLET LETTER has the charm of unconsciousness; the author did not realize while he worked, that this 'most prolix among tales' was alive with the miraculous vitality of genius. It combines the strength and substance of an oak with the subtle organization of a rose, and is great, not of malice aforethought, but inevitably."

Reviewer: Edwin Percy Whipple, (Graham's Magazine)"The error in 'The Scarlet Letter' proceeded from the divorce of its humor from its pathos--the introduction being as genial as Goldsmith or Lamb, and the story which followed being tragic even to ghastliness."
