about Pearl being a living symbol to Hester - Pearl A child born of sin Conceived by lust Created by impurity As the result of her parents fall from grace she represents the sinfulness of their act and is a continual tool for the recollection of their dubious deed Sent was she from the Almighty God as a gift and a burden of the heart God gave me the child cried she He gave her in requital of all things else which ye had taken from me She is my happiness- she is my torture none the less See ye not she is the scarlet letter only capable of being loved and so endowed with a million fold the power of retribution for my sin Ye shall not take her I will die first109 There is truth in what she says began the minister with a voice sweet tremulous but powerful insomuch that the hall reechoed and the hollow armor rang with it - truth in what Hester says and in the feeling which inspires her110 It must be even so resumed the minister This child of its fathers guilt and its mothers shame hath come from the hand of God to work in many ways upon her heart who pleads so earnestly and with such bitterness of spirit the right to keep her It was meant doubtless as the mother herself hath told us for a retribution too a torture to be felt at many an unthought-of moment a pang a sting an ever-recurring agony in the midst of a troubled joy Hath she not expressed this thought with the garb of the poor child so forcibly reminding us of that red symbol which sears her bosom110-111
