The Scarlet Letter (sh. Skrletno slovo) je roman američkog književnika Nathaniela Hawthornea objavljen 1850. Radnja mu je smještena u kolonijalni Massachusetts u 17. vijeku, kojim su tada dominirali puritanski engleski doseljenici. Protagonistica je Hester Prynne, udovica koja je u preljubničkoj aferi dobila dijete, te zbog toga kažnjena tako da mora nositi haljinu sa grimiznim slovom "A" (adultereess, na engleskom "preljubnica"); usprkos svega, ona odbija razotkriti ime muškarca s kojim je zgriješila. The Scarlet Letter je, usprkos protesta iz strane pojedinih vjerskih krugova, doživio veliki uspjeh i postao jedan od prvih bestselera u historiji američke književnosti. S obzirom na njegovu popularnost, ali i uticaj koji je imao na buduće američke književnike, često ga se naziva i prvim velikim američkim romanom. Kasnije je postao predmetom brojnih filmskih adaptacija.
