Transcript of Forest/Civilization Scarlet Letter Symbol Presentation

Forest =Corrupt Quote #2 " How he haunts this forest and carries a book with him a big, heavy book, with iron clasps; and how this ugly Black Man offers his book and his iron pen to everybody that meets him here among the trees; and they are to write their names with their own blood; and then he sets his mark on their bosoms. Didst thou ever meet the Black Man, mother?" (192). "With sudden and desperate tenderness she threw her arms around him, and pressed his head against her bosom, little caring though his cheek rested on the scarlet letter. He would have released himself, but strove in vain to do so. Hester would not set him free, lest he should look her sternly in the face." (201). Forest/Civilization Quote #1 "All these giant trees and boulders of granite seemed intent on making a mystery of the course of this small brook; fearing, perhaps, that, with its never-ceasing loquacity, it should whisper tales out of the heart of the old forest whence it flowed, or mirror its revelations on babble, kind, quiet, soothing, but melancholy, like the voice of a young child that was spending its infancy without playfulness, and knew not how to be merry among sad acquaintance and events of sombre hue" (193). Quote #3 " It stood on the shore, looking across a basin of the sea at the forest-covered hills, towards the west. A clump of scrubby trees, such as alone grew on the peninsula, did not so much conceal the cottage from view, as seem to denote that here was some object which would fain have been, or at least ought to be, concealed" (88). Quote #5 " As he drew near the town, he took an impression of change from the series of familiar objects that presented themselves. It seemed not yesterday, not one, not two, but many days or even years ago, since he had quitted them. There, indeed, was each former trace of the street, as he remembered it, and all the peculiarities of the house, with the due multitude of gable peaks, and a weather-cock at every point where his memory suggested one. Not the less, however, came this importunately obtrusive sense of change" (223). Quote #6 " In either case, there was very much the same solemnity of demeanour on the part of the spectators, as befitted a people among whom religion and law were almost identical, and in whose character both were so throughly interfused, that the mildest and severest acts of public discipline were alike made venerable and awful." (56-57). Civilization= Control Quote #4 By: Kristina Trinh, Olivia Potter, and Gordon Chow
