    Much of the social hypocrisy presented in the book stems from America’s newness. Insecure in its social order, the new society is trying to distance itself from its Anglican origins yet, at the same time, reassure itself of its legitimacy and dignity. It is a difficult task to “define” oneself as a land of self-defining individuals. But it is this project of defining America that Hawthorne himself partially undertakes in his novel. He aims to write a text that both embodies and describes “Americanness.”

    1. Discuss the function of physical setting in The Scarlet Letter. What is the relationship between the book’s events and the locations in which these events take place? Do things happen in the forest that could not happen in the town? What about time of day? Does night bring with it a set of rules that differs from those of the daytime?

    I think that is should also be mentioned how the rule of law was based on thier religion. They did not seperate the church and state as they do now.

    SparkNotes is the best! "The Scarlet Letter" has the most confusing Olde English I think I''''''''''''''''ve ever had to muddle through. Thankfully, SparkNotes broke it down for me and explained what''''''''''''''''s going on when, ''''''''''''''''cause you just can''''''''''''''''t understand with all the beating around the bush!

    Reverend Dimmesdale is the Ryan Gosling of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. (You just know those single Puritan ladies had a Tumblr devoted to him.) He''''s a brilliant speaker, a kind man, and a wise reverend. Oh, and he''''s also Hester''''s secret, illicit lover.

    Actually, we don''''t know. We don''''t know one thing about why this apparently sincere, devout Puritan minister decided that it was a good idea to sneak off into the forest with a married woman. But we do know that he feels bad about it, so bad that his

    Hawthorne is fascinated by the relationship of the individual and community to sin. His characters struggle with archetypical ideas and situations that any of us might encounter: to cheat or not to cheat? to join a community or remain an outsider? to confess or keep a secret?

    Thanks to this approach, our narrator tends to be straightforward with his characterization, informing us outright about their good traits and their bad traits. He likes to describe their attributes rather than relying on dialogue or action to convey their personalities and desires, like this moment when Chillingworth recognizes Hester on the pillory:

    I m not really sure how the teacher would want you to structure your essay. Is it supposed to relate to your personal experiences and are you supposed to use first person? I usually write my AP English essays from third person perspective while avoiding the use of first person because they re supposed to be more academic and formal. If your essay is supposed to be academic and formal, you probably should avoid using first person. If your essay is supposed to be personal, then I ll just move on: In your introduction, take out this sentence because it s unnecessary: "Although there is some truth to the statement I believe it is mostly false." The middle part about guilt being undesirable is repetitive, but the last part has great points. I rephrased the first few sentences for you: Chronic guilt is definitely not a desirable punishment because it is the worst kind of guilt. However, the unpleasant feeling guilt gives an individual is a necessary punishment. Guilt is what motivates the conscience to tell him that something is sinful. Wallowing in your guilt is not a good thing; but without guilt our world would be teeming with sin. Through my own experiences in my past I have learned how beneficial guilt can be. I often struggle with being impulsive. I will say or do something without thinking and then immediately regret it. Over the year, I have learned to control my impulsiveness. I’ve conditioned it through guilt. In your second paragraph, you say that guilt has shaped who you are. Why are you happy that guilt has shaped you? You should give more evidence. Your third paragraph doesn t have enough evidence either. However, there is no mention of The Scarlet Letter until the last paragraph. Don t do this because this book is obviously a major part of your essay. You should weave your analysis on the Scarlet Letter WITH your personal connections. Also, the last paragraph sounds too much like a summary. You should NOT summarize the book, but instead support your thesis statement with your analysis on The Scarlet Letter and with your personal connections. Introduce the book in your introduction so that your reader knows what to expect. Then conclude by tying up what you have written. Overall, your vocabulary is very good and you have some excellent points that you can support with textual evidence from the book. For example, these two sentences can be supported by textual evidence from the novel: 1) "The world is swarming with the lack of guilt because people dismiss guilt as negative instead of positive." 2) "It is the lack of guilt and morals that allows a guilty man to plead innocent."---> Perhaps instead telling the reader to imagine a ruthless murderer, you should convince the reader with your analysis. You could use this sentence to say something about the rigid and cold Puritan society. For example, why does Hester seem to be the only one who sinned? What about the rest of society? Are they guilty and corrupt? Why are they not admitting that? Can sin be transmitted from person to person? Also, you should avoid using contractions. Hope I helped :) And good luck!
