I have to do a summer reading assignment for this book and I was wondering if anyone who has read it could help me with my essay? By the way, if anyone attends Corona is taking Honors Junior English, could you also post the essay prompt choices? I lost my letter and I only remember one of the prompts...
Sorry I'm taking Honors Sophomore English so I can't help you there . . .
Sorry about late reply, was on vacation.
The essay topic is: "The Scarlet Letter is often regarded as the first symbolic novel written in America. Thus, it is in Hawthorne’s use of symbols that he has made one of his most distinctive and significant contributions to American fiction. The dominant symbol in The Scarlet Letter is the letter itself. Explain what it means to three different people, e.g. Hester, Pearl, the town, Dimmesdale, etc."
I just need some basic ideas to get started.
Okay, I'm choosing to describe it's symbolism on Dimmesdale, Hester, and the town.
