- In the novel O Pioneers! the author Willa Cather’s vision of Alexandra Bergson is consistent in character treatment with other authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne (Scarlet Letter), and Stephan Crane (Maggie: A Girl of the Streets). In each novel, all authors possess a central character that has an obvious tension between themselves and their community.
- 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.
- The achievement of simplicity in life never occurs because things are not simple, but manifold, being viewed differently, and speaking more than one purpose. Nathaniel Hawthorne journeys to seventeenth century Boston and introduces Hester Prynne as he makes his awareness of this idea evident.
- Nathaniel Hawthorne’s background influenced him to write the bold novel The Scarlet Letter. One important influence on the story is money. Hawthorne had never made much money as an author and the birth of his first daughter added to the money problems.
- I. I did not make a very clear connection with the text at all during my reading of it. Rosenblat said “The readers attention to the text activates certain elements in his past experience-external reference, internal response-that have become linked with the verbal symbols.
- “The very ideal of ignominy was embodied and made manifest in this contrivance of wood and iron”(64). This quote from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlet Letter, described the well-known scaffold in Boston where confessions were made, punishments were given, and sins were revealed, such as Hester Prynne’s sinful scarlet “A.
- 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 Influence of GOD In The Characters of The Scarlet Letter The scenes and characters in The Scarlet Letter amplify the Biblical Significance in that God s place is not only in the church but in the government as well. This creates a closed society based on strict principles and morals.
- In the novel The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne displays his view of sin through various characters. Through Hester Prynne, Hawthorne portrays sin and how it strengthens her character. On the other hand, Hawthorne shows Reverend Dimmesdale’s sin of adultery and how it makes him ill.
- That is, she was convicted of adultery, a horrible sin of the time, but maybe not even seen as criminal today. As for punishment, a sentence to wear a scarlet “A” upon her chest, it would hardly be considered a burden or extreme sentence in present day.
- When you compare The Scarlet Letter to The Minister s Black Veil they are quitealike in many ways yet different in many ways. Nathaniel Hawthorne uses the followingthemes in his stories: Alienation, Initiation, Problem of Guilt, Pride, Puritan New England, and Allegory.
- The forest was seen to be a dark and mysterious place, one where most did not venture. The forest was thought to be home of the black man and his corrupt followers. A meeting spot where they held immoral ceremonies and participated in unrighteous acts.
- The Wapshot Chronicle written by John Cheever is a book based on the lives of the Wapshot family, who live in a town in the New England district. The Story involved many characters and told many things about the family s past. However, the format Cheever takes is both boring and confusing.
- The years between 1640 and 1660 witnessed in England a greater outpouring of printed material than the country had seen since the first printing press had begun operating in the 1470s.1 The breakdown of government and Church censorship in the early 1640s was almost total until the mid-1650s when Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector reimposed some controls.
- One of the most complex and elaborate characters in The Scarlet Letter is Pearl, the daughter of Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale. Pearl, throughout the story, develops into a dynamic individual, as well as an extremely important symbol- one who is constantly changing.
- After he graduated from Bowdoin College in 18 5, Hawthorne returned to his home in Salem were he began to write in semi-seclusion. Hawthorne published his first novel, Fanshawe in 18 8. In 1839, Hawthorne was appointed weigher and gauger at the Boston Custom House.
- Mother dear, what does this scarlet letter mean? -and why dost thou wear it on thy bosom? -and why does the minister keep his hand over his heart?? She took her mother?s hand in both her own, and gazed into her eyes with an earnestness that was seldom seen in her wild and capricious character” This dialogue does not seem to be the words of a demon, but a child who is utterly curious about what the letter on her mother?s bosom means.
- Literature is bound by threads of themes that transcend all barriers of race, religion, epoch, and culture. Archetypal ideas of death, freedom, self-realization, good, and evil are utilized throughout most literary text. It is especially evident in The Song of Solomon and Beloved By Morrison, The Woman Warrior by Kingston, The Scarlet Letter by Hawthorne and The Awakening by Chopin, that religion and culture are an imperative part of society.
- The most obvious symbol in the novel is the actual scarlet “A” which both the criticism and I agree upon. This “A” is the literal symbol of the sin of adultery. The letter A then appears in many different forms throughout the novel. The gold-embroidered A on Hester Prynne’s fascinates Pearl Prynne.
- In the Scarlet Letter, the author uses many different types of symbols. The different settings of the story are ways in which he describes his environment and how it has treated him as a child. One symbol he uses a lot was the scarlet letter. The scarlet letter takes on different meanings as the course of the story progresses.
