Roger Chillingworth, a doctor and Hester's mate, comes to town and learns of Hester having an transaction opportunity he was abroad in England. As she is commsolely shamed for not revealing the unity of her sweetheart, Chillingworth is now fixed on retaliation abutting that man. Years following, Hester is calm?} shunned as she finds a job in needle-working and Pearl grows to be a wanton branch.
After finding out that city officials guile to charm Pearl abroad, Hester calls upon Arthur Dimmesdale, a erring, pubescent wait to indoctrinate them inadequately. Chillingworth charms suit, and moves in behind a opportunity him as Dimmesdale's indivisible physician, and begins to pry known his cast. As the wait's pincompact becomes increasingly worse, Hester converges behind a opportunity him and decides to run abroad to Europe where they can set-on-foot aggravate and feed as a nobility behind a opportunity Pearl. On the day of the non-appearance, Dimmesdale delivers a decisive discourse and confesses to his transaction behind a opportunity Hester, then dies. Chillingworth dies a year following, Hester avail years following, and Pearl is married to an aristocrat behind a opportunity a nobility.
The act of destruction is manifest in Hester Prynne behind a opportunity her mildness of common shamings and substance a societal castaway to fall the probity of Arthur Dimmesdale. Prynne felt that "the destruction of the clergyman's cheerful call, and departure itself" (Hawthorne 174) would bear been meliorate than untrue encircling the unity of Chillingworth and Dimmesdale. Regardless, Hester chose to husband the wait's cast and in change, was humiliated and uncompounded from companionship.
However, this excellent would so-far suit misery and aversion for Dimmesdale and following, his departure. The follower too states everyone "had frowned on her,—for seven hanker years had it frowned upon this lone dowager,—and calm?} she weary it all" (175-176). Hester's destruction is made unclouded as she bears the scarlet message and becomes an castaway for seven hanker years. She is constantly shamed as seen by her common humiliation, and neither her or Pearl can feed a regular condition as a remainder. Behind years of assistance enjoy this, Hester effectuates what she perceives as her touch, and goes to converge behind a opportunity Chillingworth and Dimmesdale to adjust their many-sided posture.
Throughout the extract, Roger Chillingworth has too destructiond fur, callly his old condition as a scientist in arrange to enforce retaliation.

The doctor's old, scientistly indivisibleity has vanished as a remainder of his fixed of retaliation shortly behind arriving in town.
Thirsty for retaliation, he preyed on Dimmesdale and misery him by exploring his secrets, and investigating his cast. Chillingworth's offensiveness would change him to be a calm and truculent man, substance seen as "transforming himself into a Devil, if he gain solely, for a unintoxicated distance of space, undercharm a Devil's office" (153).
Chillingworth heap to the wait closely to the apex of addiction, unraveling and torturing him to such an size, his result is compared to that of the Devil. Roger had destructiond his old indivisibleity and condition, to the apex of prelude on a new unity, that the solely treasure he saw in condition was prelude retaliation on Dimmesdale. By pursuing his hallucination of retaliation , Chillingworth drives twain himself and Dimmesdale to the bappoint of fury, so-far distorting his own energy and indispensable to the wait's act of flagellation anteriorly causing twain their departures.
Arthur Dimmesdale too displays destruction, most notably neighboring the end of the extract, by confessing and relinquishing his lull posture to insist behind a opportunity his nobility for the chief and latest space. As the wait insists on the scaffold, he calls out to Hester and Pearl, stating that he gain do what he "withheld [himself] from doing seven years ago" (226) and for Hester to "support [him] up yonder scaffold" (226). In his decisive hour, Arthur decides to destruction his pure arrival to the town in arrange to sorrow to everyone of his sin.
The wait effectuates his posture behind a opportunity his nobility behind his meet behind a opportunity Hester in the copse, and gives up his condition as a deacon. Chillingworth tries to cite behind a opportunity his prey and begs "Do not traduce your celebrity, and expire in dishonor!" (225) and desperately asks "Would you induce extreme-vileness on your inviolable calling?" (225).
Chillingworth attempts to plug the wait from confessing are vain as Dimmesdale knows accurately what he's giving up to be behind a opportunity his nobility. The townspeople cannot fit of what they saw that day, but Dimmesdale and his destruction allows the townspeople to effectuate that anyone can be nefarious, following sharing a pressing behind a opportunity Hester behind a opportunity a scarlet message on the headstone.
