A thesis statement is what you are going to be arguing about throughout your entire essay. You could do a character analysis of Hester Prinn, or maybe compare and contrast two of the male characters and show how they are hypocrites. Make sure whatever topic you pick, you have enough information and supportive details and quotes from the book to write your paper.
