"There glittered the scarlet letter, with comfort in its unearthly ray. Elsewhere the token of sin, it was the taper of the sick chamber."

"It had shown him where to set his foot..."

"...many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able."
Please complete the survey. After you have completed it, please take out your annotated copy of "Bartleby the Scrivener."

Through his depiction of the harsh and judgmental Puritan society, and the impact of this judgment on Hester, Pearl, and Dimmesdale, Hawethorne reveals the emotional damage caused by social pressure.
pg. 49. The women of Salem are talking about Hester's punishment.

"What do we care of marks or brands... This woman has brought shame upon us all and ought to die."
The complaints of the women of Salem characterize them as harsh and reveal that the community was more interested in its reputation than it was in avoiding sin.
Hawthorne also uses pearl to show how society affects Hester and people in general. Pearls mentality is influenced by society. While Pearl is with her mother and father she reacts negatively towards her mother’s action. “She accompanied this wild outbreak with piercing shrieks” “I see what ails the child” “misses something which she has always seen me wear (Hawthorne 206). She reacts to her mother taking off the “A” as society would have reacted, outraged. Pearl shows how society negatively pressures Hester to be aware of the sin she committed even when she is trying to redeem herself. Society doesn't let her feel a moment of peace, even when she tries to escape society.

reasoning
The complaints of the women of Salem characterize them as harsh and reveal that the community was more interested in its reputation than it was in avoiding sin.
This can be clearly seen as the crowd waits for Hester to leave the prison for her punishment. One of the women asks
"what do we care of marks or brands... This woman has brought shame upon us all and ought to die." (49)
Her rhetorical question of "what do we care" reveals that she, and likely many other women in this group, do not care whether Hester suffers. What they do care about is punishing her for the "shame" that she has brought to the community. This means that they are more interested in maintaining their reputations than they are in actually discouraging sin, because they would rather execute Hester than try to teach her a lesson about following Puritan beliefs.
As a result, Hawthorne presents a critical depiction of the women of Salem by implying that the social pressure that they put on Hester does not accurately represent the Puritan attitude toward sin.
This twisted social pressure will affect Hester throughout the novel, resulting in her alienation.

Transition?
Descriptions of Hester's home represent the isolation and alienation that she experiences after her punishment.
Transitions:

Write them after the justification, or include them as a part of the claim in the next paragraph!

Good transitions move between topics and connect back to the thesis!
The effects of this social pressure can be seen through
the description of Hester's home, which represents the isolation and alienation that she experiences after her punishment.
Formatting Reminders:
Book titles should be in italics.
Punctuation should be placed directly after a word, not with a space in between. Only one space between words.
Your essay title should not be in quotes, italics, bold, or underlined!
Capitalize proper nouns (names, place names)
Parenthetical Citations after quotes
Fix all items marked as spelling and grammar errors (Microsoft Word does a good job of marking these - copy and paste your writing in to see whether you have made mistakes!)

HW: Read & annotate Tom Sawyer summary
Find evidence of:
1) His experiences in life
2) His personality
(diction)
An author's choice to include an accent, slang, or other aspect of speech dialogue.

the use of humor, exaggeration, ridicule, or irony, to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, often in a political or moral context.
Allusion
A reference in a text or speech to an outside text, concept, or work of art.

Analysis: What happens in the piece that is being alluded to? What does this connection to another story add to the text? What does the allusion imply?
You don't know me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain't no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly.

The story of the Moses basket comes from Exodus 2:1-10. In it, Moses is left in a basket amid the reeds and bulrushes along the Nile, in Egypt where the Hebrews had been living since the time of Jacob.

By the end of Exodus 1, the pharaoh of Egypt (perhaps Ramses II) had decreed that all the Hebrew boy babies were to be drowned at birth. In the 10 verses from Exodus 2, Yocheved, Moses' mother, hides her newborn for 3 months and then places her baby in a caulked wicker basket in the Nile River reeds. The baby's crying alerts one of the pharaoh's daughters who takes the baby. Moses' sister Miriam watches in hiding, but comes out when it is clear the princess is planning to keep the child. She asks the princess if she would like a Hebrew midwife. The princess agrees and so Miriam arranges to have the real mother get paid to nurse her own child who now lives among the Egyptian royalty.
