We display these false characters or put on our masks for some personal gain. Many times, complicated situations occur because of the changing of people? s masks between reality and illusion (Cahn 39).

1,543 wordsWhat is race? The Websters dictionary defines race as any of the different varieties of human beings distinguished by physical traits, blood types, and so on.

Despite all these unfavorable factors it is considered a classic and was a statement of the era (Letter 1). The Scarlet Letter is pervaded with profound symbolism and revolves around...
