The Scarlet Letter Least Moral Essay.
Is literature in school graded fairly? Shouldn't most writings be speaking from the spirit and elaboration your own thoughts? How could that be graded on a letter grade if the teacher doesn't agree to that opinion? What if the writing is not moral to the teacher, or does not seem entirely right? Where are the right and wrong answers there? Then does that mean to get a good grade your writing have to be reasonable and correct to the teacher? Similar to the Scarlet Letter, it falls to the same, how do we know if a person is the most or the least moral? Everyone's morals are different, it is not based on religion, but on what the people believes in and whether he or she follows it righteously or not.
Hester Prynne, the protagonist of the Scarlet Letter is forced to wear the letter A on her bosom for committing adultery with another man and doesn't confess the name. "On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth surrounded with an elaborate embroidery and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter "A"." pg. 51. Viewed from a Puritan perspective, she is a sinner, and sinners are the least moral and basically useless to the Puritan community. From my perspective, Hester is the most moral character in the Scarlet Letter. For that she follows her own morals, she cares for others more than herself. She rather suffers than reveal Dimmesdale, saving him from disgrace in his name. She was even able to hold on to the scarlet letter so well; the original purpose had reversed itself. "Such helpfulness was found in her - so much power to do and power to sympathize - that many people refused to interpret the scarlet letter "A" by its original signification. They said that it meant "Able", so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength." Pg. 158. .
Roger Chillingworth, the actual husband of Hester Prynne, is the antagonist of the Scarlet Letter.
