- Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of The Scarlet Letter, felt that the Puritans were people who believed that the world was a place where the battle between good and evil was a never-ending one.

She alone suffers from sin that is not her own, but rather that of her mother. From the day she is conceived, Pearl is portrayed as an offspring of vice.
- Through out the Scarlet Letter I believe that Hester and Dimmesdale do redeem themselves. I am led to think this for Three major reasons. The first being that the sin is between man and God. In my beliefs they do not have to repent to the people for they have not sinned against them.

- Nathaniel Hawthorne was a great American writer in his time. He saw problems in the government and the ways people lived their lives that were beyond his years.

- In “The Scarlet Letter” , Nathaniel Hawthorne presents this novel in a dramatic point of view, starting with the scene of the prison. Hester is displayed as an adulterous woman in a Puritan society, where sin is harshly accounted for. She is forced to wear her badge of shame throughout life along side her daughter Pearl, yet the irony of it all is that she becomes one of the most helpful, phenomenal, virtuous people in her society.
- Roger Chillingworth was once a good man; capable and skilled in the work he did, and sound, in regards to his state of mind. Sadly, however, as time progressed, the latter of these two aspects changed. Throughout literary works, a villain’s evil intentions often change the character himself.
- The use of corporal punishment has been declining in U.S. schools. Losing public acceptance, increased awareness against school boards and educators regarding its use and legislative bans have led to the decline. More than half of the states ban its use.
- This is done by using positive natural images and metaphors to the natural world. Describing Pearl as a “…lovely and immortal flower, out of the rank luxuriance of a guilty passion” (pg. 81), begins this image. This “rank luxuriance” is based on the strict Puritan morals.
- He then dies on the scaffold, after kissing Pearl and whispering a few words to Hester.
- People waste their lives all the time by making bad decisions, focusing their lives on destroying others, and wallowing in self pity and regret. Nathaniel Hawthorne shows in his novel, The Scarlet Letter, that people go through their lives casting off their true potential.

The problem that surrounds them is that Dimmsedale have a sexual relationship with Hester Prynne resulting in a baby girl, what is weird is that Chillingsworth comes into town the day that Hester is sentenced for public humiliation.
- That pink highlighted section in my book convinced me that even though having students read a book over a very short summer vacation is a bad, misguided idea, the book you?re making us read isn?t as bad.
- Chapter 1: Hester Prynne has committed adultery. Two years ago her husband in Europe sent her on ahead to America while he settled some business affairs. Alone in the small town of Boston, Hester has shocked and angered her neighbors by secretly taking a lover and bringing forth a girl child.
- Hawthorne’s novel describes the life of an adulteress, Hester Prynne, who is shunned by her judgmental community. She gave birth to her daughter Pearl out of wedlock, while her partner of iniquity, (Hawthorne 59) a minister named Arthur Dimmesdale, never revealed his black secret of their affair.
- Adultery, betrayal, promiscuity, subterfuge, and intrigue, all of which would make an excellent coming attraction on the Hollywood scene and probably a pretty good book. Add narration, mass-hysteria and witch trials and the end result would be The Crucible, but if you added Puritan ideals and writing styles, making it long, drawn out, tedious, wearisome, sleep inducing, insipidly asinine, and the end result is The Scarlet Letter.
- The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, contains many profound characters. The townspeople intrigue the reader because they gradually evolve throughout the book, as would any solitary character. In the beginning of the novel, they are generally rigid and judgmental towards Hester, because she has committed adultery.
- “What is one man?s poison?is another?s meat or drink,” Beaumont and Fletcher wrote in one of their plays. Almost everything in the world is interpretable in at least two conflicting ways. In The Scarlet Letter, the Puritan society shuns a character named Pearl, yet the author, who lived in the Romantic period, views her with awe and reverence.
- With his precise diction Nathaniel Hawthorne displays an interesting conflict based on a disagreement between the protagonist, Hester Prynne, and the strict Puritan society around her in his novel The Scarlet Letter. This disagreement is brought to the readers attention as Hester displays pride in a symbol, the letter A, which society has branded her with as a mark of shame.
