The Interior of a Heart by HugaDuck The Interior of a Heart by HugaDuck
'It is inconceivable, the agony with which this public veneration tortured him! It was his genuine impulse to adore the truth, and to reckon all things shadow-like, and utterly devoid of weight or value, that had not its divine essence  as the life within their life. Then, what was he?- a substance?- or the dimmest of all shadows? He longed to speak out, from his own pulpit, at the full height of his voice, and tell the people what he was. "I, whom you behold in these black garments of the priesthood,- I, who ascend the sacred desk, and turn my pale face heavenward, taking upon myself to hold communion, in your behalf, with the Most Holy Omniscience,- I, in whose daily life you discern the sanctity of Enoch,- I, whose footsteps, as you suppose, leave a gleam along my earthly track, whereby the pilgrims that shall come after me may be guided to the regions of the blest,- I, who have laid the hand of baptism upon your children,- I, who have breathed the parting prayer over your dying friends, to whom the Amen sounded faintly from a world which they had quited,- I, your pastor, whom you so reverence and trust, am utterly a pollution and a lie!" '
(Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter)




Inspired by quote above from The Scarlet Letter.












I am not at all completely obsessed and in love with Dimmesdale.....

NO! D8>

........kind of...

NO!!!


For the first few chapters you think it's about a woman who committed adultery battling her guilt and society, but ends up being about the guys he did it with hating himself ever more than she does, and then the story is launched into a story of revenge when her now ex-husband shows up and then just feelsfeelspainfeels.


:I


BUT COLONIAL SLUT IS NOT THE CORRECT TERMINOLOGY!!! D8<
