[...] The stigma gone, […] the burden of shame and anguish departed from her spirit”(185) . Away from society and its beliefs, Hester is finally able to take off the scarlet letter and be a person not burdened by the stigma society places upon her. At the surface, the forest seems to be a magical place where one can shed the appearance that society forces them to assume and be their true self.
