I think Hester is so intrepid because she has to bear the humiliation in front of the public on the gallow in order to protect her baby's father.
The book is all about that the 17-century Protestant society aims at fighting against Hester's shameful mark.
In nowadays degraded society, people tend to accept the idea "love isn't guity." So why should Hester deserve the unjust censure in today's interpretation?
This very book is really worthy of our introspection.參考資料： 自己
