1: "But the point which drew all eyes... was that | SCARLET | LETTER, | so fantastically embroidered and illuminated upon her bosom. | ~ The Scarlet Letter
2: The Letter A: | The novel begins with the letter A as a punishment for Hester Prynne, who has committed the sin of adultery. The letter is to give Hester shame and embarrassment the rest of her days.
3: A | "On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth, surrounded with an elaborate embroidery and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter A."
4: Pearl is Hester's human form of her scarlet letter; both she and the scarlet letter constantly remind Hester of her sin of adultery. Pearl is the result of Hester's adultery; therefore she has a strong connection with the scarlet letter.
5: Mother,” said little Pearl, “the sunshine does not love you. It runs away and hides itself, because it is afraid of something on your bosom. . . . It will not flee from me, for I wear nothing on my bosom yet!”
6: In "The Scarlet Letter" Nathaniel Hawthorne creates the symbolism of the letter "A" to have different meanings. As the novel unfolds, the meanings of the letter "A" on Hester Prynne's bosom changes, from adultery to able to able.
