    From the beginning of his writing career, Nathaniel Hawthorne has made several references to Anne Hutchinson. In fact, he even wrote a sketch called 'Mrs. Hutchinson'; . Because of Hawthorne's apparent interest in Mrs. Hutchinson, it is entirely possible that he would use her as a template for one of the characters in his many books. Hawthorne's character, Hester Prynne, is similar in many ways to Anne Hutchinson. One likeness between the two women is they were both respected members of society....

    To Characterize a Character Character is the combination of qualities and features that distinguish a person, group, or thing from others. The wise Benjamin Disraeli once said, "Characters do no change. Opinions alter, but characters are only developed". This statement is worth acknowledging, however, I disagree. Characters are an essential part of any literary piece, and in the novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, I have observed several characters alter and change. Of course, Disra...

    + ENGLISH AP: Scarlett Letter + The Scarlet Letter A Reading Log by Brandon Moeller English AP Fisher-7 8/7/96 CHAPTER 1- The Prison-Door- I found this one page introductory chapter to be very dramatic as it explained the history of the colony by telling the history of the prison-door. From the looks of this chapter, this story will probably be dragged out as much as possible. At first I thought the way Nathaniel Hawthorne approached the latter half of the last paragraph was annoying, but when I...
  • Father Of Hester's Child

    Is The Scarlet Letter Relevant to Modern Teenage Pregnancies: YES believe The Scarlet Letter is relevant to teenage parents because many events and emotions expressed in Hawthorne's story parallel those in modern times.

But with these feelings there still resonates the morality of past generations. The first parallel between the reality and the fiction is t...
