Who is the intended audience for the novel The Scarlet Letter?


That is a good question. He wrote of historical times, of sin, guilt, and repentance. He wrote of social mores, social pressure, and the pain of reconciling this with personal morals.

I think the gist of his thrust was to call for repentance, that we are all sinners. This makes for a very wide audience. Sin is in the hearts of man, as is the hope of goodness.

Reading other works by Hawthorne probably is a good idea to answer this question also.


when say cat toe is like ah cut ca uh toe





Another good approach to this question would be to look at the time in which Hawthorne lived. Who was his audience? Most writers are trying to talk to the people of their time and space. What were the problems of his time?
