Hester gave her daughter the name Pearl because she got the baby with all she had, Pearl was her only treasure. Thus, Pearl’s existence gave her mother reason to live, holding her spirits when she is tempted to give up. Hester thought that God gave her the child in required of all things else, which she had lost. Pearl was her happiness. On the other hand, she was her torture, too.
On January 3, 2003, was the most monumental day of my life; to me a greater accomplishment than graduating any college or obtaining any degree is being the best aunt I can be to my niece. I thrive to be a better person for my niece and any other nieces or nephews to come. Although my niece is getting older being an aunt is still a great responsibility and the more she grows into a mature young adult the more I have to teach her. I know Takalah will make her own mistakes and learn her own lessons I just want to be there for all of her ups and downs; let her know that I will always be here or there or anywhere she needs
Pearl symbolizes evil in the story by representing God's punishment of Hester's sin, symbolizing the guilt and the scarlet letter that controls her behavior and defying Puritan laws by being cheerful and associating with nature. Pearl is a greater punishment then Hester’s “A”. First, Pearl represents God's punishment by her mocking and nagging of Hester. This is shown throughout the novel she sometimes seemed to her mother as almost a witch baby (Hawthorne 88).Second, Pearl is a baffling mixture of strong emotions with a fierce temper and a capacity for evil; with Pearl, Hester's life became one of constant nagging, and no joy. This is proven when Hester remarks to herself, "Oh Father in heaven - if thou art still my father - what is this being which I have brought into the world" (Hawthorne 89).Thirdly, Pearl represents the sins of both Hester and Dimmesdale.
She loved her unborn child, even if it was killing her. Humility: selflessness. She helped anyone who came to her medical clinic, even if they had no money. Chastity: knowledge or wisdom. She knew what was coming for her and her child and what she had to do.

"-Barbara WaltersHost of "The View""A magnificent story about a tragic accident, amazing recovery and drive to get back in the water.

A baby would make it all better. Once again, I was wrong! Things continued to worsen but I did not allow this to in any way affect my pregnancies. My daughters became my number one priority in life. I quit wearing make-up because becoming a mom became a full time job.
“The flightiness of her temper” (AL, p1401) is recognizable by Hester, her mother; just like her desperate, wild, defiant mood is evident in her disposition. Meade Page 2 From beginning to end in the story she consumes the hidden emotions of her mother and amplifies them for all to see. Pearl is the heart of literary symbolism. At times she is a vehicle for Hawthorne to assert the inconsistent and luminous qualities of her mother’s improper bond, and at others a reminder of Hester’s sin; which makes Pearl the perfect supplement of the scarlet letter. Although she serves as an invaluable treasure
Character Analysis Hester Prynne is the character I have chosen to accomplish this character analysis. I chose to analyze Hester Prynne, because she plays a major role in The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hester Prynne is a young rebellious lady who succumbed to temptation. This caused her many problems, because in her religion adultery is the worst sin you can perform. This caused her to be humiliated and punished in front of the whole town.
In The Scarlet Letter, the sin that has been committed is adultery where Hester Prynne and Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale conceive an illegitimate child, a daughter named Pearl. Throughout the story Hester is put on display and humiliated for her sin, while Dimmsdale is still thought to be the "almighty" minister. In similarity from The Crucible, sin is put on trial. The Crucible directly addresses the themes and ideas from Salem Witch Trials. The young girls and their leader Abigail are the core of sin and evil in the girls and the community.
In “Momma”, Chrystal Meeker tells us about her mother. The speaker shows us that her mother is very strong when it comes to her children. People are always saying that they would do anything for love, but the love for a child is totally different. The tie that a mother has to her child means more than anything. It means that she would give up anything in the world for her child’s safety or well being.
