In spite of disparate themes, settings, and characters, two

Resolved Question:

In spite of disparate themes, settings, and characters, two 19th-century American novels, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, have one major similarity. Both stories show the natural world as a place of freedom and honesty. Throughout The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale are able to hide the truth of their relationship while they remain within the confines of the town of Boston. But, once in the forest, she is able to admit her honest love of him, and he, in turn, is able to do the same to her. This freedom can only occur within the wilds of the forest. Likewise, in Huckleberry Finn, Huck is only able to see the runaway slave, Jim, as a person while on the Mississippi River. As they both escape civilization, they are able to begin building a genuine, honest, and caring relationship; something neither experienced on the shore.
