Hester is accused of being unfaithful to her husband, Roger Chillingworth, despite his absence from her life for a long period of time. During one of Roger’s extended absences, Hester conceives a child born out of sin with Arthur Dimmesdale. Arthur Dimmesdale is a local holy man and is never exposed for his sin, while Hester is frequently mistreated, and eternally punished with a scarlet “A” marked on her clothing to represent Adulterer. Hester talks about wearing the “A”, and resents the fact that it may be pointed at as a sign of weakness. Hester says, “giving up her individuality, she would become the general symbol at which the preacher and moralist might point, and in which they might vivify and embody their images of woman's frailty and sinful passion” (91 Hawthorne).
People later realize that Hester has changed and become a wonderful woman who loves to help. The citizens do not even recognize the letter as its old significance, which is adulterer. Even the people who do not know Hester think that the letter on her breast symbolizes importance. In the article, Symbols: The Scarlet Letter, “...the Native Americans who come to watch the Election day pageant thank it marks her as a person of importance and status” (Sparknotes). The Native Americans who did not know Hester thought she was of great status because of her hard working abilities and the letter on her chest.

The word ¨paint¨ helps emphasize that they are hiding their true feelings and the word ¨innocence¨ shows their naivete of what is basically a different world. Despite wanting to help the poor, they are afraid of what they see and will turn a blind eye to it in favor of their wealthy lives. The supposed ¨lovers of the poor¨ are ignorant to the harshness of poverty due to lack of experience which causes them to be unable to
Hale then goes against his practice to convince the accused to confess to save to their lives: Hale goes to Rebecca Nurse and Martha Corey and begs them to confess to witchcraft even though he knows they are not guilty of it. Hale knows if they confess they will serve jail time but at least they will not be hung (1222). Hale explains to them that if they lie and confess, God would not be as upset with them as he would if they gave up their lives for being honest. Hale’s doubt of witchcraft is present because he knows the women are not guilty but wants them to confess. He feels very guilty for being apart of the deaths of so many people and will do anything to save anyone he can.
I didn't enjoy how Shakespeare wrote this family because it isn't doesn't seems right that Jessica is leaving her father and religion because of the way he acts and does business. There should be another reason behind her leaving beside his relationship with others. I understand that she is leaving her father for her freedom, but he is doing this to protect her and to not lose her in a way he did with his
We will forget Him!” uses not only the words but the punctuation to comment upon the effect of emotion and logic, alluding to Dickinson’s own struggle with anger and love. The narrator expresses her anger through the use of exclamation points, demanding “Heart! We will forget him!”(1). There is a clear indication that the narrator is wanting intellect to win over her emotions, but that is almost never the case. The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him.
The narrator seems to be sane at the beginning of the story, but her husband’s attempts to cure her actually made the condition far worse. He confined her to a room and took away the one thing she loved to do; using her imagination as a writer. He stated that she should not be socially active, as it will worsen her condition, but being in isolation actually made things worse. She disagreed with his actions, but was unwilling to go against him. One example is when Charlotte said, “I sometimes fancy that in my condition if I had less opposition and more society and stimulus -- but John says the very worst thing that I can do is think about my condition and I confess it always makes me feel bad, so I will let it alone and talk about the house.”
