The Scarlet Letter defines the relationship between the individual and society through Hester\'s alienation from Puritan Boston caused by the sin she committed, and subsequently the scarlet A she wore on her bosom.

Patricide In the time of the Romans, the punishment for patricide was to be sewn up in a sack that had a monkey, snake, rooster, and dog inside, and then to be thrown in a river.

Thus this punishment became the proper way to punish the guilty. In the Roman era, patricide had become a major problem, so it was decided that for whomeve

Blood and Water In William Shakespeare\'s masterpiece Macbeth, he uses many motifs. Two of these motifs are blood and water. The play is full of images of blood and water, to show the characters\' attitudes toward their own guilt at each stage. Both motifs mature and change in their meaning along with the setting and mood of the play. The functions of both are important if the subtleties of the play are to be understood.

The blood images in the play had different effects on the two. But perh
