Deerslayer suddenly appears in a canoe, and he mysteriously explains that the Mingos have granted  him a "furlough" until tomorrow noon. For the present, he is reluctant to give further details of his  mission. He returns with the two sisters to the ark. Cooper, the Christian philosopher and the stern moralist, combines these views with his romantic  ideals in the death and burial scene of Tom Hutter. Hetty, symbolically, expresses the concept of  divine retribution with her judgment: "Father went for scalps himself, and now where is his own?" The  atmosphere is of course gloomy, and the gathering sunset is a very fitting backdrop for the events on  Glimmerglass. The religious overtones are present in practical applications: the Bible readings, the recognition of  death's inevitability, the solemn funeral rites, and the psychological alterations in all the participants.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
