Description
Act I, Scene 4 of The Scarlet Letter finds Arthur Dimmesdale sharing rooms with Roger Chillingworth, who has come to suspect Dimmesdale of adultery. Chillingworth leaves to attend to the dying governor, and when Dimmesdale awakes from a drug-induced sleep he wanders alone out into the streets, tortured by his own guilt. There he meets Mistress Hibbons, who sees the hypocrisy in the young minister, see that he has hidden behind his pious image and even distanced himself from his own identity. In this song she taunts the minister — a sort of grotesque mirror of his guilt.
