Was it essential to the success of his communication? Hester is the principle character in the story line.
She is branded and adulteress and must wear a scarlet A on her dress. As Hawthorne develops his story, she goes through difficult times.
I think in this book nothing shown about human nature would have been undermined if it had ended well.
Life is filled with suffering caused by human nature, yet it is also softened with times of love, laughter and joy.
Throughout the novel, Pearl is what we today would call a “rebel,” a “wild child” who was seemingly beyond the reaches of affection.
Unlike Hester, who demonstrated a remarkable dignity despite her being humiliated by her peers, Pearl even got the attention of the governor of Boston, who doubted she could ever be any kind of Christian.Nathaniel Hawthorne’s famous novel, , depicts the shame of Hester Prynne, who has had a baby named Pearl by the local minister, Arthur Dimmesdale.In Puritanical New England, she was branded an adulteress and subjected to scorn and embarrassment by others in her town.They would be no less so if Hawthorne had allowed them to get to England.There they would have been able to be free of the stigma of the scarlet letter, giving hope to people trapped in bigoted communities that there are other places and other people with different views.In my view I would have seen their escape as evidence that no matter how dark the night there is at least the moon, if not noonday sun.Hester’s self-image and Dimmsdales conflicting behavior and desires are tremendously insightful and they are interesting subjects.Later she comes back and lives on her own until she dies.Had Dimmsdale lived and taken her to live in England, would it have damaged Hawthorne’s communication? The story was about Hester’s nature, the human paradox, and the “human condition.” Hawthorne is showing that suffering, tragedy is the essence of man’s being, and human nature will always find that is so.They would have shed light on their experiences and feelings, and given insight into a more realistic picture of life.The result is that Hawthorne admirably explored a part of live and the human nature.
