"(Hawthorne 3) The townspeople were curious why he wore a veil while he was going down the stairs. Which made him mysterious to the people because they did not know what he had done to wear that "crape". It seems that they never truly understood or apologized for their actions, towards the end, it closes with the frightful thought that the minister’s face still lays behind the veil even when dead. Other insights believe the veil acted as a mirror, making the townspeople more apprehensive of their own sins.

When the minister wears the veil throughout the day, a mirror would show him the image of himself from other people’s point of view. He seems to dislike himself for his decision to wear the veil, but takes the burden.

Reacting the way that he did caused the room to feel overall awkward and to judge Michael’s actions.
