In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
The only character in “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” that is selfless is the mother who is barely acknowledged.

You’re one of my own children” (O’Connor 1153) which got her murdered seconds later.

In the short story “Rappaccini’s Daughter” many different causes led to Beatrice’s death. In my opinion many of the characters in the story played a crucial role in ending Beatrice’s life, though some characters were more responsible for her death than others.

Baglioni was responsible for giving Beatrice an antidote which resulted in her physically dying and Rappaccini was completely responsible for making her poisonous and destroying her life which was not what he intended to do.
