"'No, my little Pearl!' said her mother. 'Thou must gather thine own sunshine. I have none to give thee!'"(Hawthorne 95)."The physician knew then, that, in the minister's regard, he was no longer a trusted friend, but his bitterest enemy"(Hawthorne 204)."'Thou hast escaped me!' he repeated more than once.... 'May God forgive thee!' said the minister. 'Thou, too, hast deeply sinned!'"(Hawthorne 232-233). "On a Field, Sable, the Letter A, Gules"(Hawthorne 240).

Irony - When Hester and Pearl go to the minister's house they find it filled with items unnecessary to a Puritan man. He has suits of armor and lush gardens.Irony - The minister is the one to commit the crime with Hester Prynne.Symbolism - The scarlet letter resembles 'adultery' in the beginning of the story. The letter obtains different meanings later on in the book. The letter transforms into 'able,' and even 'angel.'Symbolism - The rose bush outside of the prison represents Hester Prynne because of its perseverance in un-ideal conditions.Symbolism - The scarlet A on the tombstone of Arthur and Hester finally unites them.
