Before the Battle of Charleston started, the sound of the bells brought happiness to Celia’s life. The bells sound, was unique and brought hope and happiness to Celia everyday. It brought hope and happiness to Celia because the bells reminded her of Jimmy and the peace before the war. “Celia thought she would love the bells as long as she lived, and whenever she went away she would be homesick for them” (Bristow 77). Bristow wanted to prove that the bells played an important role in Garth 's life.
Marilyn." So she may not necessarily intend this to be heard by an audience, which elevates the intimate bond between her and her mother. Also the use of colloquialisms such as "eh... ... middle of paper ... ... something that her fun-loving mother would have willingly chosen to go to, so this reminds us of the impact her daughter has had on her life. The last thought is quite conclusive, "that glamorous love lasts where you sparkle and waltz and laugh before you were mine." The non-standard grammar with repetition of "and" increases the feeling that her daughter is lively and excited to be revelling in her mother.
Lucie Manette’s whole life revolves around loving her family, and being compassionate toward everyone she encounters, which allows her to impact people in a positive way, transforming them and recalling them back to life, causing them to sacrifice their own convictions for her in return.

Pearl is also called the names "Ruby," "Coral," or "red Rose," and "a little bird of scarlet plumage," further extending Pearl as a red representation of Hestor's sin. Red is employed by Hawthorne to show passion and sensuality. The sin is also represented by the letter "A" being formed in the sky by meteors, and an "A" appearing on Reverend Dimmesdale's chest. The first encounter with red is the description of a wild red rosebush growing outside the prison where Hestor was imprisoned. This is representing Hestor's pride and passion, growing in a place not fitting, similar to how Hestor's passion did not fit in with the Puritan society.

When reading this story I felt anger for Dee, while for the narrator and Maggie I felt sympathy. It was easy to feel anger and disrespect for the character Dee. She was described as lighter than Maggie, with nicer hair and a fuller figure (444). From the very beginning of the story Dee showed herself as selfish and this trait was shown from her throughout the story. Dee wrote to her family saying, “No matter where we choose to live, she will manage to come see us.
She travels to the woods with her newfound family, where she frees herself from the burden of the A on her chest. Hester’s actions allow her to feel like a new person, epitomized by Hawthorne in a vivid description of her reactions: "There played around her mouth, and beamed out of her eyes, a radiant and tender smile, that seemed gushing from the very heart of womanhood. A crimson flush was glowing on her cheek, which had been long so pale" (Hawthorne 185). Removing the letter gave Hester a beam of hope, at least for the time being, something she likely had not felt since before her sin. Reverend Dimmesdale fulfills Hester and Pearl’s hopes at his last sermon, producing a feeling of nostalgia between the characters.
Hester believes that she has sinned, and thinks that she can redeem herself by doing good in the Puritan community. She is constantly reminded of her sin by her daughter, Pearl, who asks endless questions about the scarlet letter, yet Hester remains a strong role model to her. With Hester’s positive attitude and by living her life the ways she is, “many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said it meant Able,; so strong was Hester Prynne” (page 148). Hester is ‘Able’ because she is a single mother raising a daughter, is skillful ay sewing, and also is considerate by giving money to the poor even though she does not have much herself.
The family remembers her, and will not forget her, which keeps her alive in the n... ... middle of paper ... ...ides to "walk back ... stay there till I fix what I did wrong the first time ... take my sulfones too with Eleanor" (258), and leaves with Ka-san, a representation of Eleanor. This ending also shows the contradicting effects of the mother's invisible, yet existing characteristic, illustrating how Poppy was unable to let go of Eleanor, but the children were able to do so. This result is understandable since Poppy is the one who spent more time with Eleanor and the children are used to having her only spiritually. In Blu's Hanging by Yamanaka, the absence of mother leads to two opposing outcomes in the family: Poppy's downfall, the children's vulnerability to societal attacks, and at the same time a force to bond the family members together and guide the children to the right direction.
