However, Hawthorne's style was typical of the literary style of the time. Nevertheless, Hawthorne addressed modern themes and expressed his own view on human nature and religion. In addition, Hawthorne's symbolism was an essential tool in addressing topics, which were too radical to be publicly addressed in the

nineteenth century. Therefore, Hawthorne's symbolism an astute way to express his own beliefs. Hawthorne also achieved a unique form of allegory by placing characters in unusual situations. Hawthorne used various symbols to imply themes of adultery, sins, and human morality. All in all, Hawthorne deeply examined every facet of human nature and drew conclusions from the experiences of  the characters in his work. WORKS CITED Hawthorne, Nathaniel. The Scarlet Letter.

Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote novels under the Dark Romantic genre. His stories are

mostly allegories (stories told on two levels: literal and figurative). He uses many

symbols in his works as well as metaphores and allusions. There tends to be a lack of 

character confrontations and prolonged descriptions of characters, settings, and such.

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Hawthorne did not like or approve of the Transcendental movement that most of his

contemporaries were a part of, so he tended to write a little more old-fashioned than other 19th century American authors. Not noticeably more long-winded than other writers, but with such repeated emphasis on his point that at times he kind of wandered away from the plot of  the story. A consistent theme in his work (both short stories and novels) has to do with how people misinterpret symbolism--often depicting people who believe the worst about someone. He also frequently used symbolism from nature to reveal evil, rather than good or innocence like the majority of his contemporaries. He tended to avoid dialogue. Not that people didn't speak much in his work, but that any fragment of a conversation was merely a vehicle for his narrative instead of a revelation of a character's soul. Hawthorne could do that for his

characters, thank you very much. :) His tendency to get philosophical in a story (especially in longer stories and books) would today be better suited to essay writing than fiction, I think.

19th Century Literature/The Scarlet Letter

(4)

[edit ] The Scarlet Letter

Hawthorne's tale revolves around the life of Hester Prynee after having been forced to

wear the mark of an A on her blouse; the A originally stood for Adultery, the crime

which Hester committed, yet was later taken to stand for able. Hawthorne is critical of 

the Puritan morality that he thought was preoccupied with punishing other's sins.

[edit ] Extract One

In this extract, Hawthorne shows us a crowd that waits for Hester Prynne to leave the

prison and to make her way to the place where she will be publicly humiliated.

"Goodwives," said a hard-featured dame of fifty, "I'll tell ye a piece of my mind. It

would be greatly for the public behoof, if we women, being of mature age and

church-members in good repute, should have the handling of such malefactresses as this Hester

Prynne. What think ye, gossips? If the hussy stood up for judgment before us five, that

are now here in a knot together, would she come off with such a sentence as the

worshipful magistrates have awarded? Marry, I trow not!"

"People say," said another, "that the Reverend Master Dimmesdale, her godly pastor,

takes it very grievously to heart that such a scandal should have come upon his

congregation."

"The magistrates are God-fearing gentlemen, but merciful overmuch,

 — 

that is a truth,"

added a third autumnal matron. "At the very least, they should have put the brand of a

hot iron on Hester Prynne's forehead. Madame Hester would have winced at that, I

warrant me. But she,

 — 

the naughty baggage,

 — 

little will she care what they put upon the

bodice of her gown! Why, look you, she may cover it with a brooch, or such like,

heathenish adornment, and so walk the streets as brave as ever!"

"Ah, but," interposed, more softly, a young wife, holding a child by the hand, "let her

cover the mark as she will, the pang of it will be always in her heart."

"What do we talk of marks and brands, whether on the bodice of her gown, or the flesh

of her forehead?" cried another female, the ugliest as well as the most pitiless of these

self-constituted judges. "This woman has brought shame upon us all, and ought to die.

Is there not law for it? Truly there is, both in the Scripture and the statute-book. Then let

the magistrates, who have made it of no effect, thank themselves if their own wives and

daughters go astray!"

"Mercy on us, goodwife," exclaimed a man in the crowd, "is there no virtue in woman, save what springs from a wholesome fear of the gallows? That is the hardest word yet! Hush, now, gossips; for the lock is turning in the prison-door, and here comes Mistress Prynne herself."

[edit] Explanation and Analysis

Hawthorne's commentary is revealed in this extract through the characterization of the

members of the crowd. Consider how the first woman to speak is described - 'a

(5)

hard-featured dame of fifty'. This is certainly not a flattering description. She asks the crowd

to let her 'tell ye a piece of my mind'. Her dialogue is coarse and unforgiving - 'if the

hussy stood up for judgement'. She is not only 'hard-featured' but also very judgemental

and moralistic. Also notice that the only one to sympathize with young Hester was the

young female holding a child by the hand, thus re-emphasizing the rosebush

representing a new era and hope for the future compared to the rusting iron door.

La letra escarlata

Nathaniel Hawthorne

Introducción

Nathaniel Hawthorne nació en Massachusetts en 1804. Su padre era el capitán Nathaniel

Hathorne (sin la "w") y tenía una hermana llamada Elizabeth. Hawthorne se graduó de

la universidad Bowdin en Boston en 1925. Luego se mudó a casa de Maine, donde vivía

con su madre y publicó su primer libro de Fanshaw: un cuento a sus propias expensas.

Más tarde se quemaron todas las copias que pudo encontrar de ese libro. Él consiguió

un trabajo en una casa personalizada para mantener a su familia. Allí, un montón de

información para su novela La letra escarlata. En 1851, Hawthorne se convirtió en buen

amigo de Herman Melville que escribió Moby Dick en el momento. Otros libros de

Hawthorne son la casa de los siete tejados y los Cuentos de Tanglewood. Hawthorne

murió en 1864.

Este libro trata mucho con el pecado y el romance y las consecuencias del pecado y el

romance (es decir, Pearl). Otro libro que trata un tema similar fue Las uvas de la ira.

Resumen

El libro comienza con un ensayo titulado "La Aduana". Sirve para nada más que un

prólogo.

El libro comienza explicando que Hester ha cometido adulterio y tiene un hijo con un

hombre que no es su marido. Hester no le dirá quién es el padre de este niño (Pearl) es.

Como castigo por su pecado, ella debe estar en un andamio y recibir los insultos de la

gente durante tres horas y se debe usar un color escarlata "A" en su seno para el resto de

su vida como un símbolo de su pecado.

Hester fue enviado antes al marido de Massachusetts. Su marido, sin embargo, nunca

llegó a Massachusetts y se suponía perdidos o muertos en el Pacífico. Hester se enteró

que no era verdad cuando ella vio a su marido de pie entre la multitud observaba en el

cadalso. Más tarde, el marido de Hester (Roger Chillingworth) sus visitas en la cárcel.

Roger se disculpa de que era tarde, pero explica que fue capturado por los indios y

cautivos. Él convence a Hester no revelar que él es su esposo perdido hace mucho

tiempo, pero te juro que va a encontrar y vengarse de el padre de este bebé.

El reverendo Arthur Dimmesdale y su amigo John Wilson se introducen en el andamio

Hester pidiendo a revelar el padre del bebé para que él pueda sufrir al igual que Hester

lo hace. Irónicamente, resulta que Dimmesdale era el padre del bebé y que él y Hester lo

sabía. Roger Chillingworth que era médico, así como el marido de Hester, se muda con

el reverendo Dimmesdale porque Dimmesdale estaba creciendo enfermos

Mientras vivía con Dimmesdale, él empieza a sospechar que Dimmesdale es el padre de

Perla y busca vengarse de él por hacerle daño a más de curarlo de su enfermedad. Pero

esto era sólo una sospecha hasta que una noche, Chillingworth abrió la camisa

(6)

Dimmesdale. Chillingworth siguen torturando Dimmesdale.

Hester y Pearl fue liberado de la cárcel cuando su mandato había terminado. En este

punto, la perla era una niña. Ella fue, sin embargo, señaló a la A en el pecho de Hester,

un recordatorio constante de su pecado. Dimmesdale, sentimiento de culpabilidad

visitas Hester y Pearl. Entonces, una noche del tres de ellos están en el andamio junto y

la gente se imagina Dimmesdale burlándose de él, ya que debe tener siete años. Él se

disculpa con Pearl y Hester para no estar con ellos en el andamio. Mientras están en el

andamio, un meteoro vuela por el cielo dejando una estela que se parecía a la letra A,

otro recordatorio del pecado. Hester Dimmesdale dice que su marido es real

Chillingworth y que quiere venganza, mal. Ellos deciden huir juntos en un barco en el

día de las elecciones.

El día de las elecciones, Hester descubre que Chillingworth reservado un billete para el

mismo barco que ella y Dimmesdale se va a tomar. Dimmesdale pronuncia su sermón

día de las elecciones, uno de sus mejores sermones hablado alguna vez, y sube al

cadalso con Hester y Pearl para revelar su pecado a toda su congregación. Confiesa todo

y cae enfermo y muere poco después. Hester se va con Perla. Unos meses más tarde,

Chillingworth muere y deja Pearl una gran suma de dinero. Hester y Pearl trasladarse a

Inglaterra, donde es visto como una mujer sabia y van a pedirle consejo. Ella continúa a

llevar la letra escarlata allí.

Trama

La trama parecía ser artificial. Había demasiados símbolos para ser real y no me

encuentro en el lugar de uno de los personajes. Para mí, era sólo una historia. No hubo

lucha del ser humano en él y no me encuentro a mí mismo enraizamiento para

cualquiera de los personajes. El uso de la letra A fue buena al principio, pero después

pensé que era demasiado trabajo y sin pelusa era el contenido de un buen argumento.

Había una gracia salvadora sin embargo. El final fue un buen año. Se decidió no matar a

la historia por los personajes como en el Este del Edén, sino que lo resuelva. Hester se

convirtió en una sabia señora aprender de sus experiencias de ser rechazado. El hecho

de que Chillingworth murió añadido a la naturaleza mística simbólica del libro,

mostrando que el único propósito de su existencia era la tortura Dimmesdale, y una vez

Dimmesdale estaba muerto, no había nada más que hacer.

Personajes

Como he dicho antes, no me sentía para los personajes. Realmente nunca llegó a

conocer y no me importaba para ellos. Yo tenía algunas opiniones de los personajes,

pero la mayoría de ellos eran más malos que buenos. En primer lugar, yo tenía simpatía

por Hester para caer en esta situación en la que ella pensaba que su marido murió,

además de que ni siquiera quiere casarse con su marido en el primer lugar. A pesar de

que sentía simpatía, no me sentía que era lo correcto para ella a dormir con reverente

Dimmesdale Arthur por la sencilla razón de que no estaban casados. Dimmesdale, yo

pensaba que era en gran medida un hipócrita. Fue visto por su congregación como

santo, pero él sabía que no era. Él tenía la virtud de sentirse muy culpable por su

pecado, pero no debería haberlo hecho en el primer lugar. Es un reverendo! Él tiene una

congregación en que pensar. Además, pensé que la sociedad puritana era demasiado

duro con ellos. Claro Dimmesdale y Hester pecado, pero no es un pecado contra la

sociedad, es un pecado contra Dios. Deja que Dios tratar con él. También, años después

del pecado, nunca perdonó a Hester por su pecado, pero continuó la tratan como un

paria. Chillingworth era como un tanque. Se impulsó hacia su meta y no paró hasta que

pudiera ir más allá que fue cuando Dimmesdale estaba en el andamio fuera del alcance

(7)

de Chillingworth. Esta unidad que había Chillingworth podría ser en un sentido más

loable en el sentido de que él tenía un objetivo que trató de alcanzar, pero que el

objetivo era, no obstante el mal y el engaño. Pearl, a pesar de que era lindo, estaba en

mis ojos un palo de golf. Su madre estaba sufriendo, pero ella no la comodidad, se

añade a los que sufren. Tal vez perdí mucho de mi interés en la historia porque no vi a

nadie que era bueno, que me podía asociar.

Dimmesdale: Padre de Pearl. Él era un reverendo que en el comienzo del libro pidió

Hester para revelar el padre de la niña, que era él mismo.

Hester: La adúltera. Ella pecó por tener un hijo que no era de su marido y fue castigado

por toda la sociedad.

Pearl: El resultado del pecado. Pearl era la hija de Hester y Dimmesdale. Incluso antes

de que ella sabía que Dimmesdale era su padre, incluso cuando era niña se sintió atraída

hacia Dimmesdale. Ella siempre fue un recordatorio de que Hester de su pecado y se

crió en mi opinión a un palo de golf.

Chillingworth: El vengador. Este tipo estaba loco! No sólo estaba loco, loco, pero que

estaba loco, enojado. Tenía el objetivo de torturar a Dimmesdale y trabajó para que con

fervor increíble.

Ajuste

La novela tiene lugar en Salem Massachusetts. Salem es conocida por su proceso de las

brujas y quema de brujas, de los cuales uno de los antepasados de Hawthorne fue parte.

Muchas personas durante este tiempo fue humillado públicamente por lo que el castigo

que se puso a Hester podría haber sucedido realmente. El pecado podría haber sucedido

realmente. Pero la forma en Chillingworth llevó de venganza no es realista. Todo el

libro es muy simbólico que ser realistas. Este ajuste es probablemente el mejor lugar

posible para esta historia, no sólo por su historia sino porque hay un bosque de Hibbens

señora y una sociedad puritana. Si se llevó a cabo en California, los californianos

probablemente diría: "Un reverendo tuvo un hijo con la esposa de otro? ¿Y qué? "

Estilo

No me gusta el estilo de Hawthorne. Mostró un gran vocabulario de a través de este

trabajo. El estilo arcaico y sonaba a toda la gente hablaba por igual. Este no fue el

discurso natural. Todo lo que se dijo fue como en prosa, como los novelistas que han

escrito la narración, pero no como se debe escribir el habla. Hawthorne utiliza mucho el

lenguaje figurativo. Todas estas cosas juntas hicieron la lectura difícil y lenta. El libro

arrastrado a veces y en algunos puntos se convirtió francamente aburrido. Él tenía

algunos de los usos creativos de la letra A, pero eso fue todo.

Tema

La letra escarlata gira en torno al tema del pecado. ¿Quién tenía el mayor pecado?

Hester fue para adulterar? Fue Dimmesdale para adulterar dejar de ser un reverendo? Se

está Chillingworth para buscar venganza? Hester, que salía con su pecado y se han sido

perdonados. Dimmesdale pecado debería haber sido más severamente castigados que

Hester ya que nunca salió con su pecado y lo mantuvo oculto. Creo que se puede decir

que él tenía un castigo más duro, porque murió como resultado de la misma.

(8)

sentí culpable. Dimmesdale y el castigo Chillingworth es un ejemplo de un castigo de

Dios: la muerte. La gente no los mataron, pero Dios se quitaron la vida.

Conclusión

No me gusta mucho este libro tanto como algunos de los otros que leí el informe de un

libro. Sin embargo, algunas de las ideas del pecado se puede aplicar a la vida real. Es

mejor salir y confesar su pecado. No es bueno para juzgar el pecado de otras personas y

dejar de juzgar a Dios. Y, por último, "No te vengarás, ni guardarás rencor contra su

pueblo." Levítico 19:18.
