A Note to the Reader:

Posted at 10:33 PM under A Note to the Reader:

Dear Reader,

This blog is focused on my analysis of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, “The Minister’s Black Veil.”  I created this page for my Literature Studies class at Queens College, so there are also some analysis’s of other pieces of literature from different assignments.

There are many different themes throughout “The Minister’s Black Veil,” some being sin, fear and how people act. All of these are very connected with the main theme, which is, ofcourse the minister’s black veil. This blog includes my interpretation of the idea of the Black Veil that Mr. Hooper is signifying and my interpretation of why the Minister wears the veil, based on details from the story.

    Good website. I can see that you’ve done a lot of work revising it. I haven’t read this story but it sounds really interesting! I imagine the black veil is sort of like the thing that hides a “true” meaning–just like in interpreting literature.
