English - The Scarlet Letter

I need some help. I don't really know the answer to one of our questions, so I'll ask here. This comes from Chapters 1-4. Please help if you can!Thanks!

6. How does the Reverend Mr. Wilson interpret the baby's response to Dimmesdale's entreaty? What signifigance do you think the baby's response may have?

"That little babe hath been gifted with a voice, to second and confirm the counsel which thou hast heard." Sure sound to me like Mr Wilson thought the baby wanted Hester to name the father.

What do I think the baby said? I am reminded of McBeth's words as the baby raised her arms as if to speak...

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an , full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

But it does not matter what I think, what do you think?

Use the site below and read the analysis of chapters 1-3. You should also look at the character analyses.
