    In the poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost, the narrator approaches “two roads diverged in a yellow wood,” both looking fairly equal to one another (Frost 1). One path expresses slightly more wear in the grass than the other. Frost tells how the narrator traveled the road less taken, making all the difference in the end. Life is about decisions; some may be challenging, others simple, and sometimes life changing. My challenging decision took me down a rocky path my senior year deciding a career

    The Individual vs. Society in the Scarlet Letter The society we live in today grants us a variety of freedoms. No one tells us how to think or what to believe in. We decide what clothes to wear, what to do on Sundays and our religion – with no law to persuade us. These permissive decisions would not be looked highly upon in stern Puritan Society. There is no sense of individualism in 1600s Salem because laws envelop every bit of human society. With all these severe rules in place, there are bound

    While on the scaffold, she has a strong face on, attempting to look as if having a baby out of wedlock and then living in prison has held no effect on her. However, Hawthorne states on page 55 that Hester “felt at moments, as if she must needs shriek out with the power of her lungs, and cast herself from the scaffold down upon the ground, or else go mad at once.” She is still trying to figure out what is best for her daughter, and she obviously still has feelings for the father that she has yet to
