FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE IN THE SCARLET LETTER
"... was a wild rose-bush, covered, in this month of June, with its delicate gems, which might be imagined to offer their fragrance and fragile beauty to the prisoner as he went in, and to the condemned criminal as he came forth to his doom, in token that the deep heart of Nature could pity and be kind to him."
"...an object to remind him of the image of Divine Maternity... that sacred image of sinless motherhood, whose infant was to redeem the world."
"'Not a stitch in that embroidered letter, but she has felt in her heart.'"
Chapter 5
"Her
sin,
her
ignominy,

were the roots she had struck into the soil."
"She stood apart from mortal interests, yet close beside them, like a
ghost
that revisits the familiar fireside."
"...the leave of the trees

whispered the dark story

among themselves...the
summer breeze murmured
about it...the

wintry blast shrieked it

aloud!"
"The

chain
that bound her here was of iron links, and galling to her inmost soul"

"Hester Prynne looked at the man of skill [Chillingworth], and... was started to perceive what a change had come over his features, - how much uglier they were, - how his dark complexion seemed to have grown duskier, and his figure more misshapen"

What is the author trying to establish with imagery of Roger Chillingworth?
"Hester Prynne set forth ... Little Pearl, of course, was her companion... we have spoken of Pearl's rich and luxuriant beauty; a beauty that shown with deep and vivid tints;

a bright complexion,
eyes possessing
intensity of both depth and glow,

and hair already of a deep, glossy brown... her mother, in contriving of the child's garb, had allowed the goregous tendencies of her imagination their full play; arraying her in a

crimson velvet tunic,

of a peculiar cut, abundantly embroidered with... gold thread... and made her [Pearl] the very
