The cap and the letter resemble her shame showing through and how she is struggling to deal with her crime of adultery. In Chapter 13, we see her become the radiant beauty she was several years earlier when she frantically removes her cap that is covering her beautiful hair and the scarlet letter sewn to her bosom. In this action, we can see Hester light up as she tears the letter away from her bosom and we see her really happy for the first time in the book, this shows the physical and psychological torment that the letter causes her. Hester only has a brief feeling of freedom and empowerment though, as Pearl ballistically demands she returns the letter back to her bosom. While the punishment over her sin effects her physical beauty, it has a much more massive effect on her internal identity.

Media Influence on Body Image Outline Preface: The old adage says that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, however, in recent times the obsession of a signified perfect body has been escalated by media greatly. While most communities teach young individuals that physical beauty does not matter as compared to the inner beauty, this seems to contradict the same as depicted by media through reality shows, billboards, magazines, and a myriad of other platforms. In recent studies, body image perceptions have thus resulted to eating disorders amongst both females and males alike more likely affecting the teenagers and the young adults.
