The Scarlet Letter Chapter 13 & 14 Shelby Neatherlin & Brandon Rolston
Summary: Chapter 13 Hester is beginning to be more active in her community and is helping out in every way she possibly can to be accepted and make her and Pearl’s life easier as time goes on. Not much has changed, they still talk about her as a “what not to do” or the example of “who you don’t want to be but since she is doing more and more volunteering, people start to associate with her more. Even though she is showing love and compassion to her community, she is starting to change. In this chapter you can see that she has changed from a sweet woman to a more strict and mean woman.
Summary: Chapter 14 Hester and Pearl are at a beach when Hester sees Chillingworth. Hester looks at Chillingworth and describes that there had been some major changes in him since he arrived in the colony. She describes the change as him going from a calm and quiet man to a fierce carefully guarded man. He had an devilish appeal to him. She tells Chillingworth that he really needs to stop torturing Dimmesdale. Chillingworth says that the clergyman owes this to him. The suffering and the pain is all payment for the sins he had committed. He then starts blaming Hester for the monster he has become. Hester then says that she is going to reveal Chillingworth’s real identity. They end the conversation by Chillingworth telling Hester how she has wronged him.
Character Analysis Hester Prynne Hester is transformed into a newer and different version of herself. She’s a meaner and more harsh person. She isn’t the same kind hearted woman she was when we met her in the beginning of the book. Roger Chillingworth The calm, smart, mysterious man that Chillingworth was at the beginning of the book is now looked at as evil and is even considered crazy. His life has taken a toll and instead of spending his time trying to make people well, he is tormenting the poor and sickly clergyman Dimmesdale. He is changing for the worst and the author explains how ever since the story took place seven years ago, his facial features are described as evil. His eyes show the craziness that’s going on in his head.
Romantic & Puritan Ideas Romantic The A started to shift meanings from the puritan idea of punishment to the romantic idea of idealism Puritan Before in previous chapters, it says that Hester was an attractive woman. But after seven years she has undergone a change in appearance that made her more puritan like. The chapters explain that her look has become more dull, more unattractive. Before, she seemed to radiate beauty, but now it’s like she is being restricted.
Literary Devices Irony Its ironic how Chillingworth is taking all of his pain he has stored up for for Hester and is taking out on Dimesdale. Narrative Voice The narrator is talking in third person almost the entire time. He describes how the characters feel. The narrator doesn't’t know all of the emotions of every single character nor does he know every thought of every single character. But he helps describe how things are being said so the audience can almost hear the characters yelling at each other in their heads.
Literary Devices Symbolism The “A”: instead of still being used to stand for adulteress all the time, it also is starting to stand for “able.” Imagery The author uses imagery in these chapters to describe the settings and the actions of the characters in the chapters. His diction choice makes an impact on how the reader sees the image. “His moral force was abased into more than childish weakness. It groveled helpless on the ground, even while his intellectual facilities retained their pristine strength, or had perhaps acquired a morbid energy, which disease only could have given them.”
