This essay will work in two parts. First, it will examine The Scarlet Letter as representing a dystopian society created by political and religious leaders’ thirst for power and control above the needs and desires of the people whom they are supposed to protect. The second part of this essay will examine the effects of the dystopian Puritan society specifically as it relates to Hester Prynne.
