Mischievous Dimmesdale

SCARLT-UJEOOY

When Dimmesdale returns from the forest, he barely manages to keep from doing a series of unholy things.

What has caused him to almost act in such a reckless manner?

A

"No man, for any considerable period, can wear one face to himself, and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered..." (177)

B

"At least they shall say of me... that I leave no public duty unperformed, nor ill performed!" (177)

C

"As he drew near the town, he took an impression of change from the series of familiar objects that presented themselves." (177)

D

"This phenomenon, in the various shapes which it assumed, indicated no external change..." (178)

E

"And even with this terror in his heart, he could hardly avoid laughing..." (179)
