Abstract

The author tries to probe into the Christian spirit on Hester, describing her as anactive woman, who dares to be against the Puritan world. In the novel, her experience gives us a good explanation of the essence of the Christian spirit. In her life she experiences sin, hardship and redemption. What is more, her action depicts Christian spirit including the tolerance, sacrifice and faithfulness. Facing citizens, she tries to reform their action with her belief although they bring her trouble. Priest Dimmesdale, who abandons her, Hester makes silent devotion to him with little complaint.
