To the Puritans, the “A” was an unambiguous emblem signifying adultery, but Hester Prynne in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter invests the letter with a series of possible alternative meanings.
In an essay (450-500 words), discuss the Puritanâ€™s literal use of the â€œAâ€ and the significance it had in Puritan religion. Also, name two alternate meanings of the “A” and explain what Hawthorne implies in presenting differing meanings. Be sure to provide evidence from the text to support your explanations.
