Forbidden Passport: Rediscovering Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter

MPL’s popular Zoominar series returns with this fresh, three-part look at the desire, deceit, shame, and agency lurking in Puritanical town squares and gothic outskirts of 1600s Boston. With the help of navigator David Gilcrest, we’ll explore the classic novel’s infamous love/hate triangle, and consider Hawthorne’s takes on women and society, religious fanaticism, and the colonial project to both foster and repress difference on the edge of a wilderness. To register, email Karl at . Please plan to attend all three sessions (11/2, 11/9, 11/16). The program is open to mature readers of all ages and robust group discussion will be encouraged. Grab a copy of the book today!

 

David Gilcrest attended Dartmouth, the University of Utah, and earned his MFA in Poetry from the University of Montana and PhD in English from the University of Oregon. He is the author of Greening the Lyre: Environmental Poetics and Ethics. Dr. Gilcrest is an expert in Ecopoetics and advocate for the Environmental Humanities.
