Children's Roles In The Scarlet Letter And Literature

70 Words1 Page
Children’s roles in the scarlet letter and literature are portrayed as perceptive, honest and neutral in society opposed to the hypocritical puritan adults. Children act as judges of character and tend to be more perceptive and honest due to the loose limits of acceptable behaviour in society as children and ability to see the truth not gossip, free to express themselves more than adults in the 17th century Puritan society.
