The scarlet, red letter on Hester’s chest melts with her unbreakable and iron individuality. “On a field sable, the letter A gules”, or “On a black background, the scarlet letter burns”, means that even surrounded with all the darkness and not accepted by the society, Hester’s pride sparkles and is not unseen.

But by embroidering the scarlet letter in gold, Hester gives it holiness and purity, showing them that the child in her is a product of love and is pure and nothing to be ashamed

The fourth and fifth stanzas consist of single lines.

I the passage it says, “...Tall and young and handsome, my dear, just exactly like you...Seventeen! she cried. Oh, it’s the perfect age.

Some nights I would hear the voice again, leaving me with the choice of either ignoring it or tracing it once more.
When my mom saw my grandpa get better and see how he recovered her whole mindset changed on donating your organs because she saw that you can give someone a second chance, that you can help someone’s family and you wouldn’t even know it.

Was it her tiny office, that was a closet that had been converted for her since she was just starting out and there was no space for her yet? Was it how young she was?
