All human beings are naturally endowed with good qualities and bad qualities.
A steady balance of each is what makes an interesting and assertive individual.
This is Hester’s way of overcoming her tribulation, she is, nevertheless, constantly aware of her shortcomings… Many people in the Puritan community “refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification.
They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength." (p113) Pearl grows in her understanding of life in the Puritan society and in her understanding of her mother and father.
Pearl’s life and behavior directly reflects the unacceptable and abnormal nature of Hester’s adulterous sin.
Hester is plagued with more than just a letter “A”; she is given a child from her affair who is just as much a reminder of her sin as the scarlet letter.
Ultimately Hester overcomes the shame associated the scarlet letter and creates a sense of family for herself and Pearl.
This relationship is integral to the theme of this novel and the development of its characters.
