Hester Prynne as Role Model: Pro & Con.
McWalters, John B.; DeSalvo, Louise
Media and Methods, v16 n8 p36-37 Apr 1980
McWalters denies DeSalvo's previous claim (see EJ 209 302) that "The Scarlet Letter" harms students through its message of repressed sexuality; he suggests that the book does not condemn sexuality. DeSalvo replies that "The Scarlet Letter" is presented to students in a harmful way; she again calls for the use of literature that celebrates sexuality. (TJ)
