How do Chillingsworth feelings change throughout the book?

In the beginning Chillingworth had a curiosity and resentment about Hester and her baby. Chillingworth becomes bitterer through the novel. He becomes obsessed not with Hester but torturing Dimmesdale. Even before he found Dimmesdale guilty of being Pearl's father, he becomes consumed with abusing Dimmesdale. By the end of the story Chillingworth’s hate eats at his soul until he dies.
