well....let's see here is what I learned: avoid the Chillingsworth's of the world. They are the most terrifying people ever and especially don't marry one (that's a whole other subject), it's the coldnes--my English professor described Chillingworth's activities as "digging the finger that he pointed at her into her soul...penetrating everything and healing nothing"

Also, the letter that is assigned does not, in any way, describe us. We wear it with dignity, we change the meaning and we learn from what it supposedly represents. We are more than the labels assigned to us.

What letter, exactly, would the men of the novel worn.....hmmmmmm
