Prompt: Using literary criticism as additional support, explain how Hawthorne’s use of Romanticism to develop Hester’s individualism within the Puritan society also conveys her feminist qualities.
The argument in this essay, what you must focus on, is how Hester reacts to how she is treated in Puritan society and how her reaction reinforces her feminist ideal of individuality. Don’t emphasize what is said or done to her but how Hester reacts to it and how that reaction is feminist.
I have instruction part as follows: Hester is the focus of this Essay. If you use self-determination, you must identify exactly what you mean by this and not just use the phrase over and over again. It can mean something different in each circumstance.
Look for quotes about her individualism, which reinforce her feminist qualitiesHester Prynne, the protagonist of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, conveys independence and strength in the face of great adversity and social condemnation. After crossing over to the “New World” from England without her husband, Hester engages herself in a passionate love affair with another man, disregarding all moral sensibilities of her conservative Puritan upbringing. Caught and denounced, she remains steadfastly strong and independent, even when imprisoned and publicly humiliated. While traditional views on femininity ascribe to women traits of physical, emotional, and spiritual weakness which justifies imposing men’s "protection" and "guidance," Hester Prynne defies these expectations by learning to rely on herself and to recover her own standing and identity despite her ostracization by the Puritan public. In his novel, The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne employs the traits of Romanticism to develop Hester as a self-reliant woman who resists denigration and carves out a place for herself despite harsh realities.
