Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Motif of The Hand Over the Heart Kate Williams "The young minister at once came forward, pale, and holding his hand over his heart, as was his custom whenever his peculiarly nervous temperament was thrown into agitation" (Hawthorne 103-104; ch 8). "She will not speak!" murmured Mr. Dimmesdale, who, leaning over the balcony, with his hand upon his heart, had awaited the result of his appeal (Hawthorne 48; ch. 3). "His cheek was paler and thinner, and his voice more tremulous than before,when it had now become a constant habit, rather than a casual gesture, to press his hand over his heart" (Hawthorne 111; ch. 9). "And, mother, he has his hand over his heart! Is it because, when the minister wrote his name in the book, the Black Man set his mark in that place? But why does he not wear it outside his bosom, as thou dost, mother?" (Hawthorne 169; ch.16). "With a convulsive motion, he tore away the ministerial band from before his breast. It was revealed! But it were irreverent to describe that revelation. For an instant, the gaze of the horror-stricken multitude was concentrated on the ghastly miracle; while the minister stood, with a flush of triumph in his face, as one who, in the crisis of acutest pain, had won a victory (Hawthorne 228; ch. 23). -speak-up_n_1900428.html%3B570%3B238 %3B300 h
