For the story you read for homework, is it more Gothic or Transendental? Using the chart find a quote to fit each motif (if possible)and explain the significance of the quote to the story and to the motif. HOMEWORK do not do this now, you will not have time. Do this at home or if you finish the rest early. Do the rest of the lesson in class. Nature- If you were to write a rhetorical analysis essay for this essay, name 2 aspects of rhetoric (appeal or device) used by the author to support his thesis or reasons. For each of the two you have chosen, write 1-2 sentences of analysis (use your green sheets How to Connect Rhetorical Choices to Meaning pg 23-26 for help). This does not need to be in paragraph structure but can be two separate analyses. NOW THAT WERE THINKING

Lets talk Hawthorne- The Scarlet Letter Specifically, To start- some background on that author. You do not need to copy this down unless you so choose. Pay attention to the notes in scarlet NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE Born July 4, 1804, in Salem, Mass.

Reclusive at times Wrote Twice-Told Tales, The House of Seven Gables, The Scarlet Letter, etc. Married Sophia Peabody and fathered Una Died in 1864 Buried in Concord, Massachusetts Great-great-great-great grandfather, John Hathorne, was judge at Salem witch trials AND NOW THE NOVEL BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The novel is set in the mid 1600s in Boston, Massachusetts. The plot encompasses a seven year period. The plot involves the love triangle of wife-lover-husband. The major theme of the novel is developed in the context of good vs. evil. LETS REVIEW PURITANISM! YAY PURITANISM!!! Puritan beliefs: An emphasis on private study of the Bible A desire to see education and enlightenment for the masses (especially so they could read the Bible for themselves) Simplicity in worship, the exclusion of vestments, images, candles, etc.

Did not celebrate traditional holidays which they believed to be in violation of the regulative principle of worship. Believed the Sabbath was still obligatory for Christians, although they believed the Sabbath had been changed to Sunday Some approved of the churchs involvement with the courts POINT OF VIEW Third Person Omniscient: There is no limit to what the reader knows. We hear the inner the thoughts of all the characters. CHARACTERS

Hester Prynne- wearer of the scarlet letter Pearl- child of Hester; living symbol of Hesters sin Roger Chillingworth- learned scholar; doctor Arthur Dimmesdale- admired young minister Governor Bellingham- governor and magistrate of Massachusetts Bay Colony Rev. John Wilson- senior minister of colony Mistress Hibbins- Gov. Bellinghams sister AND SO WE BEGIN- WITH THE INTRODUCTIONTHE CUSTOM HOUSE We will not read all of this because well, it is 36 pages and aside from setting up the frame of the story (which is done in a few

paragraphs) has very little of lasting importance. So here is what it does do: The Narrator, a bored government employee, after prattling on for some 20 pages about the other people he works with and how much he hates his job, tells how he one day found something of interest in the attic of the government building- THE CUSTOM HOUSE EXERPT. But, one idle and rainy day, it was my fortune to make a discovery of some little interest. Poking and burrowing into the heaped-up rubbish in the corner, unfolding one and another document, and reading the names of vessels that

had long ago foundered at sea or rotted at the wharves, and those of merchants never heard of now on 'Change, nor very readily decipherable on their mossy tombstones; glancing at such matters with the saddened, weary, half-reluctant interest which we bestow on the corpse of dead activity--and exerting my fancy, sluggish with little use, to raise up from these dry bones an image of the old towns brighter aspect, when India was a new region, and only Salem knew the way thither--I chanced to lay my hand on a small package, carefully done up in a piece of ancient yellow parchment. This envelope had the air of an official record of some period long past, when clerks engrossed their stiff and formal chirography on more substantial materials than at present. There was something about it that quickened an instinctive curiosity, and made me undo the faded red tape that tied up the package, with the sense that a treasure would here be brought to light.

CONT. But the object that most drew my attention to the mysterious package was a certain affair of fine red cloth, much worn and faded, There were traces about it of gold embroidery, which, however, was greatly frayed and defaced, so that none, or very little, of the glitter was left. It had been wrought, as was easy to perceive, with wonderful skill of needlework; and the stitch (as I am assured by ladies conversant with such mysteries) gives evidence of a now forgotten art, not to be discovered even by the process of picking out the threads. This rag of scarlet cloth--for time, and wear, and a sacrilegious moth had reduced it to little

other than a rag--on careful examination, assumed the shape of a letter. CONT. It was the capital letter A. By an accurate measurement, each limb proved to be precisely three inches and a quarter in length. It had been intended, there could be no doubt, as an ornamental article of dress; but how it was to be worn, or what rank, honour, and dignity, in by-past times, were signified by it, was a riddle which (so evanescent are the fashions of the world in these particulars) I saw little hope of solving. And yet it strangely interested me. My eyes fastened themselves upon the old scarlet letter, and would not be turned aside. Certainly there was some deep meaning in it most worthy of interpretation, and which, as it were, streamed forth from the mystic symbol,

subtly communicating itself to my sensibilities, but evading the analysis of my mind. When thus perplexed--and cogitating, among other hypotheses, whether the letter might not have been one of those decorations which the white men used to contrive in order to take the eyes of Indians--I happened to place it on my breast. It seemed to me--the reader may smile, but must not doubt my word--it seemed to me, then, that I experienced a sensation not altogether physical, yet almost so, as of burning heat, and as if the letter were not of red cloth, but red-hot iron. I shuddered, and involuntarily let it fall upon the floor. CONT. In the absorbing contemplation of the scarlet letter, I had hitherto neglected to examine a small roll of dingy paper, around which it had been twisted. This I

now opened, and had the satisfaction to find recorded by the old Surveyor's pen, a reasonably complete explanation of the whole affair. There were several foolscap sheets, containing many particulars respecting the life and conversation of one Hester Prynne, who appeared to have been rather a noteworthy personage in the view of our ancestors. She had flourished during the period between the early days of Massachusetts and the close of the seventeenth century. Aged persons, alive in the time of Mr. Surveyor Pue, and from whose oral testimony he had made up his narrative, remembered her, in their youth, as a very old, but not decrepit woman, of a stately and solemn aspect. It had been her habit, from an almost immemorial date, to go about the country as a kind of voluntary nurse, and doing whatever miscellaneous good she might; taking upon herself, likewise, to give advice in all matters, especially those of the heart, by which means--as a person of such propensities inevitably

must--she gained from many people the reverence due to an angel, but, I should imagine, was looked upon by others as an intruder and a nuisance. AND FINALLY Prying further into the manuscript, I found the record of other doings and sufferings of this singular woman, for most of which the reader is referred to the story entitled "THE SCARLET LETTER"; and it should be borne carefully in mind that the main facts of that story are authorized and authenticated by the document of Mr. Surveyor Pue. The original papers, together with the scarlet letter itself--a most curious relic--are still in my possession, and shall be freely exhibited to whomsoever, induced by the great interest of the narrative, may desire a sight of them I must not be understood affirming that, in the dressing up of the

tale, and imagining the motives and modes of passion that influenced the characters who figure in it, I have invariably confined myself within the limits of the old Surveyor's half-a-dozen sheets of foolscap. On the contrary, I have allowed myself, as to such points, nearly, or altogether, as much license as if the facts had been entirely of my own invention. What I contend for is the authenticity of the outline. OKAY- SOThe Narrator is retelling the story he found told by Surveyor Pue. Surveyor Pue evidently remembers the person of Hester Pryne from when he was young (and she very old by then). The story however, is about when she was young and found guilty of adultery. Pue wrote the story down and the narrator is adding embellishments. However, what else stands out from the introduction? What

qualities/characteristics (go back through the slides if you must) of Romantic literature are already being suggested by the author and his initial response to the package and its contents? - note the quote and the characteristic that relates to it.
