In The Scarlet Letter Hester committed adultery The story deals with the revelation of her lover the Reverend Dimmesdale A significant part of the book is the scaffold which is a raised platform used as a place where people who have committed a crime and were forced to stand There were three significant scenes where the scaffold were used that provided unity to the novelIn the first scene Hester Praynne and her infant daughter Pearl were to stand on the scaffold before the community so they could witness her shame Throughout this time the Reverand Dimmesdale had a chance to stand on the scaffold with Hester so the community could also witness his shame of being Pearls father He does not confess though because Hester refuses to name the manIn the second scene Dimmesdale tries to free his conscience of the guilt by standing on the Scaffold at the middle of the night While he is on there Hester and Pearl walk by and spot him he asks them to come up on the scaffold as an attempt for him to confess or reveal his sin Pearl then asks him to stand with them there the next day at noon but all he says is that he will stand with them on the great judgement day This scene took place seven years after the first A few weeks later by the scaffold Hester and Pearl are standing through the crowd At this time Dimmesdale is near his death for he cant keep his gulity conscience any longer he then walks to his scaffold He climbs on then calls Hester and Pearl to come up with him then he tells all the people his sin Dimmesdale then dies believing his confession has saved himBibliographyThis is all original BABY
