Pearl is a child of passion. She was born out of the passion of a forbidden relationship. Pearl represents the vitality and primal energy of a union that exists outside of the Puritan experience. There is a raw authenticity about Pearl that is opposite to the spirit crushing world of Puritan conformity.
