In contrast to Dimmesdale, Chillingworth does not have a moral code to follow, and because of this, he is never truly free. Chillingworth focuses his life on revenge, and he does have a sense of moral. He finds pleasure in trying to reveal Hester’s lover and destroying her lover. He says, “I shall see him tremble. I shall feel myself shudder, suddenly and unawares. Sooner or later, he must needs be mine” (70)! As Chillingworth tells Hester that he will eventually find out who is her lover, he demonstrates full spite towards Hester as well as his lost of a moral code. As evident from his desire of finding out who is man, all Chillingworth wants is to get revenge. He does not show good judgment or any reflection on his wrongdoing. Shown in his merciless purpose, he does not have a moral code. His lack of a moral code is further shown after when he finds out that Dimmesdale is Hester’s lover and “imagine[s] a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy” (128). Dimmesedale’s “intimate” relationship with his evil deed of revenge reveals that he does not have any judgment from right or wrong. Therefore, he does not have a moral code. Because he does not have a moral code, he continues with his revenge without any contemplation. Chillingworth continues revenge because he never finds contentment. He is always unsatisfied all the time. As a result, he is never free. Chillingworth dies with “all his strength and energy—all his vital and intellectual force—seemed at once to desert him…he positively withered up, shriveled away, and almost vanished from mortal sight” (236). Chillingworth’s revenge is motivated from Dimmesdale’s torturing restlessly. Finally, at his death, Chillingworth does not die naturally, he “withered up [and] shriveled away,” showing his disappointing life. His fixed investment on his energy towards his revenge makes him never truly free. When Chillingworth lives a life of revenge and without a moral code, he never finds peace in his mind or freedom.

Although society does not accept one for one’s moral code, following it will allow one to be free. This holds true throughout people’s daily life. One must always stand up for one’s belief. One should never try to follow the crowd. Being able to make one’s own decision, makes one true to oneself and free.

This section has entirely too much repetition. Read it outloud! If you have already heard it before, then you don't need to say it again. I will be glad to reread when you finish it. In the concluding paragraph the first sentence has an "it" that doesn't have a clear reference, and the last sentence doesn't need a comma.

In the passage provided, the narrator discusses Chillingworth's lack of a moral code and how it ultimately leads to his inability to experience true freedom. The repetition in this section is evident, as several points are restated multiple times. To improve the clarity and cohesiveness of the passage, the writer should strive to eliminate unnecessary repetition and rephrases.

To begin, the writer states that Chillingworth does not have a moral code, contrasting him with Dimmesdale. This aspect is reiterated multiple times throughout the passage. Instead of restating this point, the writer could focus on providing specific examples and evidence to support the claim.

Furthermore, the writer highlights Chillingworth's desire for revenge and the pleasure he derives from trying to expose Hester's lover. This notion is repeated with various phrasings, such as expressing Chillingworth's intent to make the unknown man his, his focus on revenge, and his lack of a moral code. Instead of reiterating these points, the writer could delve deeper into Chillingworth's mindset and motivations, as well as provide more specific examples from the text.

The passage also repeats the idea that Chillingworth's lack of a moral code is evident in his relentless pursuit of revenge without reflection. These points could be consolidated and further expanded upon to strengthen the argument.

Additionally, the writer emphasizes Chillingworth's failure to find contentment and freedom due to his obsession with revenge. While this is a crucial aspect of the argument, it could be condensed and supported with specific evidence from the text.

Finally, in the concluding paragraph, the writer mentions the importance of standing up for one's beliefs and making independent decisions to achieve freedom. However, the sentence structure becomes somewhat convoluted, and there is an unclear reference to "it." The writer should revise and clarify this sentence for better coherence. Additionally, the last sentence could be revised to remove the unnecessary comma.

Overall, by eliminating repetition and focusing on providing specific evidence and examples, the writer can enhance the clarity and effectiveness of the argument.
