Key Question # 26 To me, I was satisfied by the way things ended in the “Scarlet Letter”. Although I wished to have seen Hester, Arthur and Pearl all become a family together, I have no complains about how the story ended. I believe that Arthur Dimmesdale had the right to die. It makes it seems that death was his punishment for speaking out his guilt seven years later, however the only issue, I have with that scene it that it took place right after. To make it more intriguing to the reader, I believe that if he was dying in a room slowly after he confessed then it would make more sense. However, with his fast death, the author made the scene seem like it was rushed. Furthermore, the rest of the characters endings were interesting, especially Pearl’s. Since she grew up with no friends and some what of a hated childhood, I assumed her to be single and maybe live with her mom when she got older however she didn’t.

Furthermore, more people should be reading this book in order to truly understand what happens when your hidden guilt gets to you and what is can make you think or believe....

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
