Literary Analysis Paper
Write a 1000-1500 word/4-6 page (not including the Works Cited page(s) in the count) literary analysis paper, using the following prompts below: Analyze the moral ambiguity in The Scarlet Letter. Consider characters and the overall theme and story as a whole. Are particular characters, actions, places, etc. clearly laid out as “good” or “evil?” How so? Why do you think this is? Given that the Romance genre often is less about “realism” and more about exploring big deals like good vs evil, how does the lack of realism in the novel help explain Hawthorne’s themes about morality?
