"If that have not avenged me, I can do no more!" Chillingworth says that the letter was revenge enough for the crime that Hester committed, but she wore it as a badge of pride. This punishment did not wear her down the way that Dimmesdale’s did. While Chillingworth was evil in his last years, he could have done more to punish Hester secretly, but he did not take it to that extreme. Perhaps he did care for her more and he would admit.

You tallow face!” In this quote the consequences of Juliet defining her father’s authority is seen through the way that Capulet’s attitude changes, from treating her with respect to treating her like scum the minute she disobeys her father’s authority. Imagery is employed to emphasise Capulet’s harshness and the manner in which his attitude changes after Juliet purports to disobey him.
