4 While they are talking, they see Hester and Pearl in the cemetery. Hester and Pearl look up at the men in the window, who wonder if the mischievous nymph-like Pearl is true evil.

5 In a moment of passion, the Reverend blows up at Chillingworth, telling him that he will reveal nothing to the earthly man and leaves the room. This display of passion makes Chillingworth exceptionally pleased, because he feels it brings him closer to finding out what the reverend is hiding. When the reverend is asleep, Chillingworth looks under his shirt and displays great joy.

6 1. What investigation consumes Chillingworth? His aspirations (hopes and desires) include finding out the truth about Hesters lover and the secrets he thinks are buried in Dimmesdales soul. His aspirations (hopes and desires) include finding out the truth about Hesters lover and the secrets he thinks are buried in Dimmesdales soul. The Chapter Study Questions

7 Who is Chillingworths main suspect and victim? Who is Chillingworths main suspect and victim? One may infer it is Dimmesdale. He now dug into the poor clergymans heart like a miner searching for gold, as a sexton (church caretaker) delving into a grave in quest of a jewel that had been buried on the dead mans bosom.

8 2. What is a leech? What double meaning does the world leech have? It can be a blood sucker or an archaic word for a doctor. It can be a blood sucker or an archaic word for a doctor. It is also used to describe someone who takes from others and gives nothing in return. It is also used to describe someone who takes from others and gives nothing in return. I am tired of her leeching off of me! I am tired of her leeching off of me!

9 3. What secret does Chillingworth believe is buried in Dimmesdales heart? He believes that Dimmesdale is hiding something that troubles his soul. He tells Dimmesdale he will only receive solace (comfort or alleviation of anxiety and guilt) if he confesses. One can infer the Chillingworth is pretty sure that Dimmesdale is Hesters lover. He believes that Dimmesdale is hiding something that troubles his soul. He tells Dimmesdale he will only receive solace (comfort or alleviation of anxiety and guilt) if he confesses. One can infer the Chillingworth is pretty sure that Dimmesdale is Hesters lover.

10 4. Where does the doctor obtain the dark ugly weeds he is examining? What is his explanation for their appearance? - From the graveyard, growing on an unmarked tomb -They grew out of the mans heart to represent a hideous secret that was buried with him, which he should of confessed to in his lifetime.

11 5. Why would Dimmesdale live with guilt and not confess his sin openly? Dimmesdale tells Chillingworth that some men dont confess because they have a zeal for Gods glory and mans welfare. They shrink from displaying themselves black and filthy in the view of men; because, if they do, no good can be achieved by them. (No evil of the past can be redeemed by better service.) Dimmesdale tells Chillingworth that some men dont confess because they have a zeal for Gods glory and mans welfare. They shrink from displaying themselves black and filthy in the view of men; because, if they do, no good can be achieved by them. (No evil of the past can be redeemed by better service.) Or in other words, if someone in a high position admits his sin, people may not allow him to make up for it by now doing good in the world.

12 6. What reaction does Pearl have to Chillingworth when she sees him with Rev. Dimmesdale? She says to her mother, Come away, mother! Come away, or yonder old Black Man will catch you! He hath got hold of the minister already. Come away, mother, or he will catch you! But he cannot catch little Pearl! She says to her mother, Come away, mother! Come away, or yonder old Black Man will catch you! He hath got hold of the minister already. Come away, mother, or he will catch you! But he cannot catch little Pearl!

13 7. What discovery does Chillingworth make when Dimmesdale fell into a deep, deep slumber? The physician advanced to his patient, laid his hand upon his bosom, and thrust aside the vestment, that, hitherto, had always covered it even from the professional eye. Then, indeed, Mr. Dimmesdale shuddered, and slightly stirred. After a brief pause, the physician turned away. But with what a wild look of wonder, joy, and horror! With what a ghastly rapture, as it were, too mighty to be expressed only by the eye and features, and therefore bursting forth through the whole ugliness of his figure. After a brief pause, the physician turned away. But with what a wild look of wonder, joy, and horror! With what a ghastly rapture, as it were, too mighty to be expressed only by the eye and features, and therefore bursting forth through the whole ugliness of his figure. So we can infer he sees something on the ministers chest.

17 Allegory The ghastly rapture Chillingworth shows fits in with the devils rapture to gain a new sinner in the bible. The ghastly rapture Chillingworth shows fits in with the devils rapture to gain a new sinner in the bible. Had a man seen old Roger Chillingworth, at that moment of his ecstasy, he would have had no need to ask how Satan comports himself, when a precious human soul is lost to heaven, and won into his kingdom.

18 Foreshadowing No!not to thee!not to an earthly physician! cried Mr. Dimmesdale, passionately, and turning his eyes, full and bright, and with a kind of fierceness, on old Roger Chillingworth. Not to thee! But, if it be the souls disease, then do I commit myself to the one Physician of the soul! He, if it stand with his good pleasure, can cure; or he can kill! Let him do with me as, in his justice and wisdom, he shall see good. But who art thou, that meddlest in this matter?that dares thrust himself between the sufferer and his God? No!not to thee!not to an earthly physician! cried Mr. Dimmesdale, passionately, and turning his eyes, full and bright, and with a kind of fierceness, on old Roger Chillingworth. Not to thee! But, if it be the souls disease, then do I commit myself to the one Physician of the soul! He, if it stand with his good pleasure, can cure; or he can kill! Let him do with me as, in his justice and wisdom, he shall see good. But who art thou, that meddlest in this matter?that dares thrust himself between the sufferer and his God? Is this foreshadowing that he knows what Chllingworth is up do?

19 The Leech and His Patient

20 The Rev. is surely hiding something. Ive just got to dig deeper into his soul. I must be careful and creative, though, so he doesnt figure out what Im doing. The Rev. is surely hiding something. Ive just got to dig deeper into his soul. I must be careful and creative, though, so he doesnt figure out what Im doing. Chillingworth (to himself)

21 Dimmesdale: Hey Doc., whatcha doing with those dark ugly weeds. Chillingworth Oh, I found them growing on this dead guys grave. They must have grown out of his heart to symbolize some horrible secret that was buried with him because he didnt confess on Earth.

22 Dimmesdale: Maybe he wanted to but just couldnt. Maybe he thought he could do more good on Earth if people didnt know what a bad guy he really was. Chillingworth He just lying to himself. Hes a coward. You cant glorify God by going to Him with your sins unconfessed.

23 Chillingworth Hey, look out the window. Theres Hester and Pearl. There is something wrong with that childs nature. Is she even capable of good? Dimmesdale: I dont know.

24 Pearl (after throwing prickly burrs up at the window) Lets go Mother or the evil guy will get you like he has caught hold of the Reverend.

25 Chillingworth There goes a woman whose sins are not hidden. Do you think she might be less miserable because they are out in the open? Dimmesdale: I think so, but there is a look of pain on her face that is hard for me to bear. Still it probably is better for sinners to have their sins out in the open, instead of hidden in their hearts.

26 Chillingworth You asked me before about my judgment of your health. Your disorder is a strange one, but not so bad a smart guy like me cant figure out. Dimmesdale:Huh?Chillingworth You must tell me if you have been hiding something important from me about your sickness. Dimmesdale: Why would I hide my symptoms after asking you to help me?

27 Chillingworth Well, you know, a physical sickness can have a spiritual part. You have to tell me whats troubling your soul. Dimmesdale: No!!!! No! No! No! Ill only tell God and let Him do to me what He will in His great wisdom on judgment day. (The Rev. rushes out.)

28 Chillingworth (to himself) Its good I pushed him as something has sure got him upset. But Ill have to be more careful so hell still think Im his friend. I will figure this out!

29 Chillingworth: Let me just take a peek under his shirt. Oh my! Im feeling wonder, joy, and horror! Let me dance around with excitement!
