Anyway, here's the debatable statements.
RIP VAN WINKLE
Rip is an unhappy, not lazy, man who avoids his home life by vacating or helping others.
Leslie has a far better wife than Rip's.
YOUNG GOODMAN BROWN
Young Goodman Brown is having an experience that is causing him to confront his views of what is good and evil.
SCARLETT LETTER (1-6)
It is highly unnecessary for Hester to stand on the platform. An illegitimate child is far embarrassing enough in those days. It is not necessary to make a spectacle of her. Everyone knows her sin already and has spread all the gossip. Wearing that "A" has no real purpose.
SCARLETT LETTER (7-12)
The author has a minimal disdain for the main character Hester.
SCARLETT LETTER . (12-18)
The book is about a few different forms of passion, how they can be viewed as sin, that any passion for that matter may be sinful.
