A Whole New Hester

| | Comments (0)

After finishing the book I remembered why I liked it. I think its great that Hester's character didn't stay a depressed and shamed woman. I think Hawthorne was a lot more progressive that we think when it came to women's empowerment. Even though she states that only god can remove the letter, she still eventually takes it off and light shines. She has moved on from the dreadful time living under that cloud of shame. I still think she has a strange relationship with Pearl, who by the way is incredibly intuitive.
