“She had not known the weight until she felt the freedom. Nathaniel Hawthorne?s masterpiece, The Scarlet Letter, set in 17th-century Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony, is the tale of Hester Prynne?s ?shame? following the birth of a child whose father remains unidentified for the larger part of the narrative. Hester?s defiance in the face of expulsion and repudiation makes her a heroine ahead of her time. Pearl, the illegitimate daughter, Arthur Dimmesdale, the ?cheating? Minister of Church, Reverend John Wilson, and the malicious Roger Chillingworth are Hawthorne?s characters whose lives, premised on guilt and pride, take a tumultuous turn as the cataclysmic outcome of an act of passion. The embroidered scarlet ?A??that she is required to wear on her dress on the day of her punishment? becomes a manifestation of Hester?s ?adultery?, her erratic past and ignominious present. Will she break her vow of silence?”
