outward purity is a lie

| | Comments (2)

"Outward guise of purity was but a lie" "there was nothing else so awful and so loathsome as this sense" (80).  Chapters 1-6

I thought the section of Hester Prynne realizing she was not alone in the world of sins was a powerful one.  Her true character came out when she displayed the utmost sympathy for her companions instead of rejoicing in the fact that she is not the only one who "took the fall".

It does show that she is not overly selfish in nature. She is concerned over the fact that others have to go through the torment she has to endure as well.

This is a very good point. I think this is a very strong part in the first part of the book that may show for something later.
