FC: Hester Prynne Maquelah, Kaitlyn, Lainie, & Jazmine

1: Hester does not really get affected by the society. She lives on the edge of the village with Pearl. She does not let what the townspeople say bug her that much. | How Hester is Affected.

2: Significance: Hester is saying that he can be trusted with her secret, and taunts her to give up the truth. | “I will keep thy secret, as I have his” | Chapter 4, Page 29 | Hester speaking to Chillingworth

3: “Art thou like the black man that haunts this forest round about us? Hast thou enticed me into a bond that will prove the ruin of my soul?” | Significance: Hester describes Chillingworth’s actions as something by the dark black man (the devil). The devil symbolizes how dark and black her life will be from now on, and also symbolizes all of the obstacles she will have to overcome. | Hester speaking to Chillingworth | Chapter 4, Page 29

4: “Thou wast my pastor, and hadst charge of my soul, and knowest me better than these men can. I will not lose the child! Speak for me! Thous knowest-for thou hast sympathies which these men lack-thou knowest what is in my heart, and what are a mothers rights, and how much the stronger they are when that mother has but her child and the scarlet letter! Look thou to it! I will not lose the child! Look to it!” | Significance: By Hester pleading with Dimmesdale, shes proving that she desparately wanted to keep Pearl. Her saying her heart is strgoner than the scarlet letter symbolizes how strong of a person she really is. | Chapter 7, Page 62 | Hester spoken to Dimmesdale

5: “But the child, unaccustomed to the touch or familiarity of any but her mother, escaped through the open window, and stood on the upper step, looking like a wild, tropical bird of rich plumage, ready to take flight into the upper air." | Significance: Pearl is described as a bird, but in the beginning of the quote it says that she is accustomed to the touch and familiarity of any but her mother. Since Pearl is described as a wild animal, its symbolizing that her mother has raised her this way. Or at least this is how the townspeople see it. It can also symbolize her wanting to be free and fly away from her problems. | Hawthorne spoken to reader | Chapter 8, Page 62

6: “Children have always a sympathy in the agitations of those connected with them; always, especially, a sense of any trouble or impending revolution, of whatever kind, in domestic circumstances; and therefore Pearl, who was the gem on her mother's unquiet bosom, betrayed, by the very dance of her spirits, the emotions which none could detect in the marble passiveness of Hester's brow” | Significance: This quote is significant because it explains how Pearl really acts and the impact it has on Hester who has to single-handedly raise her. | Hawthorne spoken to reader | Chapter 4, Page 21

7: Chapter 5, Page 31 | “Throughout them all, giving up her individuality, she would become the general symbol at which the preacher and moralist might point, and in which they might vivify and embody their images of woman's frailty and sinful passion.” | Significance: The quote explains how Hester was really impacted by the whole ‘sin’ and what people could aim not to be. | Hawthorne spoken to reader

8: Physical Description of Hester Prynne: | “The young woman was tall with a figure of perfect elegance on a large scale. She had dark and abundant hair so glossy that it threw off the sunshine with a gleam, and a face which, besides from being beautiful from regularity of feature and richness of complexion, had the impressiveness belonging to a marked brow and deep black eyes” | chapter 2, Page 7
