Imagine a man having insecurities of his own with a somewhat deformed and unpretentious appearance finding that his spouse had betrayed him For Roger Chillingworth it was a completely heart-breaking devastation In The Scarlet Letter Chillingworth is the husband of Hester Prynne When they married he knew that she didnt love him but still proceeded to commit the rest of his life to her Consequently a story of forbidden passion hatred and jealousy unfolds Starting off as a scholar Roger Chillingworth finds himself in a doctors position later in the book His back is deformed and one shoulder is higher than the other giving him a hunchbacked appearance Chillingworth is not physically attractive and very slender His eyes have a strong penetrating power Chpt 10 p 157 and he is a loner Old Roger Chillingworth throughout life had been calm in temperament kindly though not of warm affections but ever and in all his relations with the world a pure and upright man p 157 Chpt 10 He enjoys studying and the pursuit of knowledge When Chillingworth finds out that Hester cheated on him he cannot be blamed for being dismayed and livid He feels betrayed and calls Hesters sin unpardonable His rage quickly becomes resentment and he develops a strong desire to find out with whom Hester had an affair with Chillingworth seeks nothing but revenge When Arthur Dimmesdale defends Hester and her actions Chillingworth begins his suspicion Chillingworth quickly becomes determined to withdraw the truth from Dimmesdale who in fact was the man for whom Hester had betrayed him The spite Chillingworth feels towards Dimmesdale grows stronger as his suspicion about Hester and Dimmesdale seems more and more likely Chillingworth plans his vengeance during all of his waking hours He becomes close to Dimmesdale hoping maybe he would get a confession but it didnt happen The two soon lived together while Chillingworth still prodded From then on Dimmesdales
