  6. I don't think Hester is going insane. If she were the reason would be that she is with Pearl 24/7.

  9. I agree with everyone who said that Hester is going insane. She isn't quite there yet, but she's getting close to it. And yes, Pearl is most likely the cause of it.

  10. Does anyone think that Pearl seems to be getting more evil with every chapter we read?

  11. Graham- I see her getting more passionate, not necessarily loosing all sanity.

    Juan- Yes, I also have realized she seems to be getting more mischievous every chapter.

    My comment- Why would Hester ever trick herself into thinking that she loved Roger enough to marry him in the first place ?

  12. i agree with Juan that Pearl is getting eviler as we get further into the book, which is very likely to be the cause of Hester going crazy.

  13. Hannah, at one point, she probally did love him, but then he started showing signs of evilness. Then, Roger's tourturing of Dimmesdale, increased the gap of their relationship, forcing Hester to the extent of hating him.

    Hey everyone, why won't my profile pic show up?

  14. Hannah,I dont think that Hester ever loved him.
    Juan, I think Pearl is getting evil. I felt so bad for the little bird she stoned.

  15. -Bobby I think Hester is going insane and I do think it is because of Peal.
    -Hannah I don't think Roger was evil when she married him...he became evil because he came back from the sea and she had a baby that was not his,witch was not his.

  16. Why does Hester say the Black Man gave her the scarlet letter?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Why do you think Hester always tells Pearl to go and play when she wants to talk to Dimmesdale and Chillingworth?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Juan i agree with you. Pearl seams to act a lot more evil each chapter.

    ReplyDelete
  19. hannah, chillingsworth was probably alot less evil when she married him. Back when hester was still faithful

    ReplyDelete
  20. bobby, its probably because she doesnt want pearl to know the truth

    ReplyDelete
  21. why does hester lie to pearl about the black man and how she got her letter?

    ReplyDelete
  22. at this point, does Pearl know that Dimmesdale is her father?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I do think Hester is going insane...but i dont think it is all Pearl doing it to her....i think she is also just getting annoyed with dimmsdale and Chillingworth always on her shoulders. And it is probably hard for her because she has to take care of Dimmsdale, beacause his health is failing so bad.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Does anyone know how old Dimmsdale is....and if he is dying from old age or what he is dying from?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kiley i think that Pearl senses that Dimmsdale is her father...since him and her mother talk a lot and meet...and they always send Pearl off to play why they talk.... she probablys knows that something is up!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Emily i think dimmsdale is dyin from death haha and from the guilt that he is suffering

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am the last to comment hehehehe HAHAHAHHAHHAHAH

  28. My question...Why is Pearl always asking if the minister going to be around?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Juan- no? Lol. I guess she gets a bit more wild everytime..but not "evil"

    HannahBearr- I'm not sure if she even did? Didn't they just marry people back then? Lol.

    My question: Do you think Dimmsdale and Hester are really going to leave?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Why does Pearl always bother Pearl I wonder?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Michaela i think Pearl likes the minister like all little children would.

  32. I don't exactly agree that Hester is going insane, but if so it would be all her stress including Dimmsdale and Pearl for instance.
