"The Scarlet Letter, first published in 1850 and the author's first work of any length, established Hawthorne's reputation. Henry James, then a child living in New York City, was to remember dimly the sensation the book produced, and the little shudder with which people alluded to it, as if a peculiar horror was mixed with its attractions."
