Description
At the beginning of Act II, Scene 1 of The Scarlet Letter, Hester has entered the forest with her daughter, Pearl, hoping to meet Arthur Dimmesdale on his return from a ministering errand. At this point, she has just been confronted by her estranged husband, Roger Chillingworth, who has uncovered the adulterous truth about the young minister. Here, outside the confines of the town, Hester begins to question the moral strictures that have governed her life.
