The Scarlet Letter
“Wilt thou let me be at peace, if I once tell thee?” asked Hester. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, life is centered around a stiff Puritan society in which one can not indulge in their deepest thoughts. Puritan society does not let human beings show how they really feel. Therefore Hester had to seek refuge to explore her inner thoughts, such as the forest. In the forest Hester brings out

as energetic and wild as the forest itself. There are no setbacks in the forest because its an all natural place and that’s what its meant for.
In conclusion the forest was a place where Hester would seek refuge and love and freedom. Hester sought refuge in the vast freedom of the forest and could always look forward to speaking with Dimmsdale there. “Wilt thou let me be at peace, once I tell thee.”
