we are reading the scarlet letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. can you please tell me why Arthur Dimmesdale is the greatest sinner in the book and give examples and quotes (for quotes include what chapter it was found in) thanks!

You should go to www.sparknotes.com/lit and read the section on character analysis. As for examples and quotes, you'll need to find them on your own -- you have the book, I hope! I don't.

Please re-post with what you have come up with if you wish someone to critique your work.

Why is his sin greater than the other members of the church and community? That is a nice debate on morality...is the silent culprit more guilty than those who besmirch the visible culprit?
