The new scarlet letter

In his classic novel “The Scarlet Letter,” Nathaniel Hawthorne portrays a heroic woman in Hester Prynne, who is forced to bear a mark of shame by wearing a red A, meaning Adulteress, on her bosom. Hester, though, refuses to accept that judgment, not by refusing to wear it but by wearing it nobly. She embroiders it with gold thread and walks with her head high despite being ostracized by the tongue-wagging, judging Puritan society.
