Chapter 11 of the Scarlet Letter
Transcript of Chapter 11 of the Scarlet Letter
Roger Chillingworth's realizes his path is clear, vengence
The night before, chillingworth broke into dimmesdales studies when he was sleeping and looked apon the symbol or mark on dimmesdale's chest, and from that point on is motives are clear, make dimmesdales life even worse than it already is.
Dimmesdale is looking worse and doesnt seem to be getting better.
Now chillingworth will make dimmesdale's life a living hell
At the end, he for some reason left his house in the middle of the night. this is foreshadowing that he is going to do something that will impact his secret and possibly his and hesters lives
Proof of self-reliance and individuaism inn the chapter was there. Chillingworth acting like he was helping, but when only one person could actually help dimmesdale get better was himself. To survive he needs to count on himself to do the right thing and confess
Dimmesdale loathes himself, still, and explains all of his thoughts and things going through his mind and would love to go public with his crime.
He tried on multiple occasions to tell the people of his unholy doings, and he should be torn down from his pulpit, but couldn't do it.
Then at the end, it said he softly went down the staircase, undid the door and went forth into the night
The fact that dimmesdale doesn't need anybody else to help him, shows the transcendentalist belief of individuaism
The connection between chillingworth and dimmesdale called "over soul"
transcendentalists believe that everybody and everything (over soul) is connected like; the direct relation between chillingworth and dimmesdale. One lives only to torture the other, so when dimmesdale dies, chillingworth dies as well because he has nothing else to live for
Hawthorne used the rhetorical device alliteration of "I" in the chapter, to show the things that represent him and the tings he thinks of himself, making his way to the secret lie he holds within
Hawthorne also used the symbolism of this evil act weighing down on his soul, a disease slowly putting him in his grave, making him weak but in reality it was himself doing it to his own body.
