Another factor is that her old husband was healing Dimmsdale, her ‘illegitimate’ lover. Hester and her daughter Pearl lived with mistrust, the townspeople were disgusted by her, and would never trust her even after her sentence was lifted.

This was shown throughout both The Scarlett Letter and Ethan Frome in a variety of ways, including the lack of true companionship in both novels and also the complete lack of trust held by some characters in both
Just like in his earlier life, Paul D feels humiliated by his fundamental lack of power or control, and he is unable to appear strong or masculine even to the woman he loves. Paul D also recognizes that it is not Beloved’s sexual allure in itself that is so devastating, but the oppressive institution of her power as a whole. Furthermore, he brings up the idea that her superficial image of a “sweet young girl” is deceptive, and that it hides something more sinister (149).

And they live in a gross and dirty world.” Good intentions cannot always lead to a good outcome. Very often the path a person may be stuck on simply does not have a good end, and it may be impossible to swerve off into a different path. In George’s and Lennie’s case, they were limited by a society which would not cooperate with many people, there would be people who would be looking for trouble. This quote plays a theme during the entire novella, especially in Lennie’s character. After
Not having a mouth represents many thing such as : “At times, dreaming of a faceless person can be a reflection of how confused you are about yourself and your direction in life. You might also have this feeling that other people fail to appreciate you.” This could mean as his confusion rises about what it is zelda thinks he has done, as she would claim he was a common customer at the house of infidelity.
