Antoine Ummm. The Scarlet Letter has a witch in it. But it is not ABOUT the witch by any stretch of the imagination.


message 2: by Silver (new)

Silver Hester could be perceived as a witch during the period of time in which the story was written. All witches do not per sae have to be supernatural and she did have some unearthly qualities about her. It is a matter of one owns interpretation of both the story and the meaning of the word witch.


message 3: by Antoine (last edited Jan 16, 2010 07:01PM) (new)

Antoine Ok, well the story was written in the 1840's, so witch hunts were not so much part of the scene. But even her enemies don't suspect Hester of witchcraft; in fact, given the level of loathing for Hester in the novel, this is kind of remarkable. There is a minor character, Mistress Hbbins, who is a witch, but she is more of a foil to Hester, than she is a counterpart.


message 4: by Silver (last edited Jan 16, 2010 06:50PM) (new)

Silver It was written in the 1840's but the story is set within the 17th century. And perhaps no one directly accused Hester of being a witch, but they did suspect that her daughter might have been sired by Satan.
