Scarlet Letter Chapter 20 (XX) The Minister in a maze
Answers 1Add Yours
It is rather cold and even standoffish on Dimmesdale's part. Chillingworth enters and offers to make some medicine for Dimmesdale so that he will have enough energy to write his Election Sermon. Dimmesdale declines the offer and instead orders some food, which he eats "with ravenous appetite." He then sits down and starts writing his sermon, continuing all through the night and even well into the morning.
