The Golden "A"
I chose the letter “A” because, like Hester, Marilyn was an adulterer. I decided not to make the letter scarlet because it’s a very harsh color and in the society of the 1940s this action was not frowned upon. I chose the color gold because even though Marilyn was a sex icon, she is an idol for many today. Like a gold ring, when you first see it it’s bright and shiny and beautiful but after a while it starts to get dull and dingy, and because of this it loses its value. Marilyn felt like this in the world of Hollywood.
