    In The Threads of the Scarlet Letter: A Study of Hawthorne's Transformative Art, Richard Kopley suggests that the scene in The Scarlet Letter in which Chillingworth approaches the sleeping minister may have been inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s story, “The Tell-Tale Heart.” (courtesy of University of Delaware Press)
