.Finally, the word

THEMES:
 As noted above, the keyword
woman
descends from a root 
which means both ‘shame’ and ‘pudenda’, the external genitalia of a
woman. Interestingly, among the paronyms of 
pursued
is
scarlet 
which
means both “a strong to vivid red or reddish orange” and as an adjective“flagrantly immoral or unchaste.”
4
 
Roget’s 21
s
Century Thesaurus
listsboth shame and unchaste as synonyms of three other words
immoral,immodest, and fallen.
5
Standing in marked contrast to these words is
‘good’, the definition
of the root of 
mature.
The words good,
MORAL
,and
CHASTE
are all synonyms.
