The Scarlet Letter
The novel The Scarlet Letter, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, had many various turning points. The most interesting to me were the ³scaffold scenes.² Each had its own exciting moments. It kept the story moving. Nathaniel Hawthorne uses the ³scenes² as major turning points.
In chronological order, the first ³scaffold scene² was what started the novel. The book opened right where Hester and Pearl were on the scaffold. In this scene, Hester and

the story ended. Dimmesdale¹s relationship with Chillingworth was at an end, the confusing relationship with Pearl was no longer a threat, and Dimmesdale¹s pain, physically and emotionally, was over after he confessed and passed on.
These few scenes made dramatic and very interesting twists thought out the entire novel. Each scene had its own important role. The scaffold scenes were very simple and easy to follow turning points making it easy to read.
