MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines Hawthorne’s novel The Scarlet Letter (1850) and Stendhal’s Le Rouge et Le Noir (1830). To achieve this aim, we have used the IMRAD method. This work starts with an introduction that highlights our main ideas and reviews some of the literature written on the novels and the novelists. After that, we have stated our problematic and our working hypothesis. In the method section, we have explored Northrop Frye’s theory of Tragedy. The material section has provided the summary of the two novels. Then, we have pointed out the results we have reached from the study of materials. The discussion section embodied our study of the themes of love and tragic fate as represented by the main characters in the light of Frye’s theory of Tragedy. At last, we have supplied a conclusion that summarized the steps we have followed in our work, and restated the issue we have worked on.
