his culprit, he keeps him alive to live in agony. The effect of his great sin on his own character is that of a complete transformation to evil. His physical characteristics become twisted and corrupted, as does his soul and life purpose. His one-track mind leads him to eventual self- deterioration. He is the worst sinner in the book, and once his transformation was complete, there was no turning back. The way sin affects the lives of the characters in the book, and the way they each deal with it is both enlightening and unsettling. In a way, one can see why the characters acted they way they did, but it’s unsettling to see them end up the way they did. If there is one thing to learn from The Scarlet Letter, it is not to give in to sin, and if you already have, own up to it and

learn from it.
