Scarlet Letter

Quote & page number ​ ​ Responses 
“...It would be greatly for the public behoof, 
if we women, being mature of age and 
church members in good repute, should 
have handling of such malefactresses as this 
Hester Prynne. What think ye, gossips? If the 
hussy stood up for judgement before us five, 
that are now here in knot together, would 
she come off with such a sentence…” 
Pg.59 
These girls have been talking bad about 
Hester Prynne with these gossips and it 
reminds me of some girls at school who likes 
to hear rumors or spread rumors in a gossip. 
A lot of them tend to do that here which 
creates a lot of drama  
“Had a roar of laughter burst from the 
multitude-- each man, each woman, each 
little, shrill voiced child, contributing their 
individual parts-- Hester Prynne might have 
repaid them all with a bitter and disdainful 
smile” 
Pg. 64 
If I were in Hester Prynne’s shoes, with all 
that humiliation and laughter everyone is 
giving me, I would have done the same thing, 
that contempted smile, keeping you cooled 
down while everyone is shaming you...the 
best thing and the most similar thing I would 
do is such smile 
“Reminisces...intermingled with 
recollections of whatever was gravest in her 
subsequent life….Possible it was an 
instinctive device of her spirit to relieve 
itself, by exhibition of these phantasmagoric 
forms, from the cruel weight and hardness 
of the reality 
Pg.65 
Perhaps her thoughts is trying to relieve 
itself and readying her, or in other words, 
replaying itself in the olden days so that 
reality won’t seem as harsh since this isn’t 
the only weight that have put her down 
before 
“...the stranger bent his eyes on Hester 
Prynne. It was carelessly, at first….Very 
soon, writhing horror twisted itself across 
his features….His face darkened with some 
powerful emotion...he so instantly controlled 
by an effort of his will..” 
Pg. 67 
This person seems to be somehow she knows 
or have some kind of important relationship 
with in the past. The man seems to recognize 
her and is angered somehow as she stands 
there in the scaffold. It might be the aged 
man she has married in England 
“​She could no longer borrow from the future 
to help her through the present grief” 
Pg. 82 
This quote speaks to me in a way that it says 
she can’t foresee the future anymore and 
give herself hope to this day she is now 
forced to live by 
​ Quote & page number ​ ​ Responses 
“​God, as a direct consequence of the sin 
which man thus punished, had given her a 
lovely child, whose place was on the same 
dishonored bosom…” 
Pg. 92 
Although she was punished by a child which 
will forever remind her of her sin, the child 
has grew into a intelligent and sweet child 
that she will both cherish and look upon to 
for her sins..This seems like a mother who 
truly loves her child...
