The Scarlet Letter

Can you name some literary devices in the scarlet letter that come from chapters 5-8?

I have the description of what Pearl is wearing on pg 92 as a symbol, and an allusion on to proverbs 13:24 on pg 83, i need one more. Imagery or anything with an explanation of why it is significant to the novel!

The Scarlet Letter


"Mindful however, of her own errors and misfortunes, she early sought to impose a tender but strict control over the infant… " (Chapter 6)

what would that be foreshadowing?

Pearl's independence.
