  2. 2. MOOD, TONE, SYMBOLISM, THEMES Throughout our reading of the novel, I’ve tried to provide you withimages to help you access the work For your culminating assignments on The Scarlet Letter, you willcomplete an assignment on each of the following terms: • Mood and Tone • Symbolism • Irony To help you review these terms and what they look like, look at thefollowing images
  3. 3. MOOD AND TONE  Mood is the feeling you get through the description of setting • This picture has a solemn, or dreary mood. This is attributed to the colors, the darkness of the painting, the gauntness of the characters  Tone is the emotion of the piece
  4. 4. MOOD  This opening scaffolding scene would appear to have a solemn, serious mood at first • This is reinforced by the darkness of the clothing of the crowd, their expressions, the emotions on their face • You then have Hester standing out, and above them in bright red, with Pearl displayed in pure white  What feelings does this give you?
  5. 5. MOOD  Think about the physical setting of the novel • Why would Puritans have feared the woods? • Puritans placed towns, places of safety behind stockade walls that were supposed to keep them safe/separated from the dangers that existed beyond • The devil • Indians
  6. 6. SYMBOLISM This woodcutting of the openingscaffolding scene is dominated by thepillory (stock) that frames not only thepicture, but Hester The rest of the scene is indistinctand blurry, but the pillory is clearlyrendered and the shadowing makes it aframe • It represents the many facets of Hester’s punishment
