Exam: Scarlet Letter chapters 1-12

Read carefully, make notes and prepare to write about the following items:

The rose at the threshold of the prison door.  Anne Hutchinson.  Sweet moral blossom?  

Pearl's name.  It's significance.  (Biblical and natural)

Pearl’s response when asked who made her.  Significance. (connections to first item)

Chillingworth.   His relationship to Dimmesdale.  Differing opinions of him among the townsfolk.

The conversation about the weeds and hidden sin in chapter 10.  The subtext.  Dramatic irony.  The burrs.

The scaffold scene in chapter 12. Compare to the scaffold scene in chapter 2.
