Description
In Act I, Scene 2 of The Scarlet Letter, Hester is found in her jail cell, having just been publicly accused of adultery. Her estranged husband, now calling himself Roger Chillingworth, enters the jail as a doctor to offer assistance to her ailing baby. As the two begin to recognize each other, Chillingworth sings of their past, betraying a vulnerability he will later quell when, in a spirit of frustrated rage, he will seek revenge for Hester's adultery.
