The Sides of the Characters of the Scarlet Letter Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote the book in the times of the puritans in the 1600s The Characters of the book include Hester Prynne Pearl Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale and Roger Chillingsworth The first person I will talk about is Roger Chillingsworth who is nice to the townspeople Hester and Pearl The other side of Chillingsworth shows him as an evil person associated with the Devil Here is a quote that explains how evil Roger is to Arthur Dimmesdale and how he torments him A light glimmered out of the physicians eye burning blue and ominous like the reflection of a furnace or let us say like one of those gleams of ghastly fire Thus showing how much evil is in Roger Chillingsworth The second character to talk about in the book The Scarlet Letter is Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale Arthur is a holy man in the puritan society everyone looks at the reverend as a sign of belief and honesty One example of Arthurs good doing is when he stood at the platform at night and asked Hester and Pearl to join him on the platform and to hold hands The evil side that is being revealed in the book is that Arthur is hiding a deep secret that Pearl is his daughter and Hester is his adulteress The Last to talk about is Hester and Pearl Hester has her own guilt but realizes That Pearl is smart and understands her abilities as a little child Pearl lives the life as a reality but doesnt want the scarlet letter to be attached to her mother Hester has the guilt of a sin knowing that Arthur is Pearls father but doesnt want that guilt to be given to Pearl Pearl is picking this guilt up as the years go by
