Curlys wife is being nosy and she doesn’t need to put her nose into everything. She pokes around everywhere. She has a husband looking for her 24/7 and yet she still is looking around for a guy to get with . if she would stay where she is needed it would have been fine. So that’s why I think she is at fault of her death.
And that is just great. But so many other people would disagree so strongly with her sunny disposition, after being robbed, by fate, of the life they had worked so hard to make for themselves.

Due to this, Hester feels as though her punishment isn’t rightful as she never tried to corrupt society or hurt others with her sin.

Even when the poor citizens of Boston reject her aid, Hester still provides the unfortunate with clothing and food.

Not only did the reaction of Kitty 's neighbors demonstrate how gruesome this era was, but they also displayed a recurring theme in American history. Nobody that noticed Kitty 's altercation attempted to aid the helpless woman. When interviewed, most replied, "I didn 't want to get involved" (122) or some form of that response, such as, "I didn 't want my husband to get involved" (122).
