summary The Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne ï 3 download free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ï Nathaniel Hawthorne Ntity of the child’s father a man who suffers intense guilt over his cowardice a vengeful husband and a town without pity This annotated American Classics edition contains student helps including • Main Character List • Author Biography • Study uestions • History in the Making 1850 • Summar Behold verily there is the women of the Scarlet Letter and of a truth over there is the likeness of the scarlet letter running alongside her Let s talk a little bit about self fulfilling prophecy If an entire community and religious sect brand a girl s mother as a sinner whether justly or unjustly then surely the girl will take some of this to heart If the only world she has ever known is one when he only parent is considered ungodly blasphemous and full of sin then surely she will begin to reflect some of these ideals When the Puritans branded Hester with the Scarlet Letter they also branded her daughter metaphorically speaking of courseThis novel is a political message directly pointed at the Puritans of early America In their blind devoutness they almost cause the very thing they are actually preaching against Ultimately Hawthorne portrays the religious sect as hypocrites who are completely self defeating in their actions What s the point in preaching a religion if you don t fully adhere to its doctrine There s none Actions have conseuences so does unjustified damnation Indeed in this the author establishes how some extreme piety can almost cause impiety Religion can be taken too far Christianity is built upon the principals of forgiveness and repentance not punishment and the shaming of the guilty Well what the Puritans perceive as guilty Then there is the entire separate issue of the fact that those men of the cloth can be guilty too Nobody is completely pure despite what they think Hester s biggest sin is getting pregnant outside of marriage In their persecution of her they don t consider how she could be the victim in all this I m not saying that she is in this regard but to the best of their knowledge she could well be She could have been raped They re also unforgivingly sexist they again consider Hester to be the guilty party without recognising that it takes two to do the deed Their ignorance knows no bounds to the realities of life they shield themselves with their religious virtue and do not consider that there is a harsh world out there Men like this are dangerous and in this Hawthorne establishes his message I have laughed in bitterness and agony of heart at the contrast between what I seem and what I am This is a very accomplished novel it provides an interesting perspective on a crucial part of American history It was an enlightening read but toward the middle it s focus did begin to dwindle I felt like there were a few passages of convoluted and unnecessary narration I mean this was short though it could have been a little shorter The middle was drawn out with some irrelevant events thrown in I m not entirely sure of their point The language combination was also a little odd at times it felt like the author had lifted certain expressions straight from Shakespeare s vocabulary and infused it with his own The result was a very disjointed and hard to read combination The overall message of this piece of literature is what makes it a worthy read even if its delivery was a little pedantic at times Overall though I do attest that this is a rather undervalued novel The socio historical context it provides is tremendous This is a classic I m very glad I read The overall message of this piece of literature is what makes it a worthy read even if its delivery was a little pedantic at times
