Signet
An ardent young woman, her cowardly lover, and her aging vengeful husband—these are the central characters in this stark drama of the conflict between passion and convention in the harsh world of seventeenth-century Boston. Tremendously moving and rich in psychological insight, this dramatic depiction of the struggle between mind and heart illuminates Hawthorne's concern with our Puritan past and its influence on American life.

"I have thought of death,” said she,—“have wished for it,—would even have prayed for it, were it fit that such as I should pray for any thing.
The reason is not far to seek. It was my folly, and thy(your) weakness. I,—a man of thought,—the book-worm of great libraries, —a man already in decay, having given my best years to feed the hungry dream of knowledge,—what had I to do with youth and beauty like thine own!
To-morrow would bring its own trial with it; so would the next day, and so would the next; each its own trial...
...under the leaden infliction which it was her doom to endure, she felt, at moments, as if she must needs shriek out with the full power of her lungs, and cast herself from the scaffold down upon the ground, or else go mad at once.
...up to that epoch of my life, I had lived in vain. The world had been so cheerless! My heart was a habitation large enough for many guests, but lonely and chill, and without a household fire.
