  • The Minister's Black Veil
  • CHRISTIAN VARGAS PER.5
  • An example of American Romanticism would be the importance of individual freedom in the sense that each person has the right to choose for himself.  In the short story, Reverend Hooper chooses to wear a black veil over his face for the rest of his life. He wears it despite the criticism he receives which is instantly in line 11.

  • Mr. Hooper qualifies as a romantic character because he is so much more focused on feeling and emotional truth than he is on logic and because he is not afraid to be ostracized for his beliefs. He wears the veil because of his beliefs. He won’t let anyone convince him to take it off not even his partner so she ends up leaving him. 
  • The black veil is a symbol of secret sin and how terrible human nature can be. This could represent the secret sin that all people carry in their hearts, or it could be a representation of Mr. Hooper's specific sin, which some readers think to be adultery. I personally don’t think that he committed adultery.
  • The Minister's Black Veil is a parable or allegory because is contains a moral message. When Hooper first puts on the black veil, everyone expects it just to be a prop for his sermon. The subject [of his sermon] had reference to secret sin, and those sad mysteries which we hide from our nearest and dearest.
  • The theme of "The Minister's Black Veil" is that secret sin exists in people, and they are hypocritical about their sins, pretending that they are guileless.
  • I haven't committed any sin.
