Maybe the red from the roses represents the same thing as the letter... the individual over the community. The roses supposedly sprang up from Ann Hutchinson, who was imprisoned, so it would make sense for them to represent a break from society. And wouldn't criminals love to see this representation?

I think maybe he is trying to say that the color is showing that maybe you had something bad happen to you or you did something bad yourself, but it doesn't mean you are a bad person?

I totally agree with you, Lauren. Pearl is also constantly described as "red", and she is definitely an outsider. While I'm unsure about red being a positive color, I definitely see a theme with it.

I think that it is associating this way of thinking that red is the representation between good and evil rooted inside human. Red can means purity and beauty but often times we associate red with the devil. But humans are the imperfect organisms from God that were created in his image. But we are constantly in a battle between God and Satan
