Author Nathaniel Hawthorne's use of mental imagery and symbolism creates a sense of immorality, death, and decay to the reader. Throughout his novels and poems, Nathaniel Hawthorne continually uses literary devices for sin. Hawthorne’s symbolism paints such a vivid picture of physically showing each person’s sin. This creativity and such a unique writing style could only be produced by a master like Hawthorne. Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, 1804, in Salem Massachusetts to Nathaniel and Elizabeth Clark Hathorne; their only son.
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to talk to someone but you couldn 't due to problems in the past? If you can relate to this, I would recommend reading Romeo and Juliet.

Francisco Villegas Dr. Richard Coronado English 2326 September 29, 2014 Perfection Is Not A Goal Worth Pursuing In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, “The Birth-Mark,” Aylmer apparently after getting married with Georgiana noticed the birthmark Georgiana had in her left cheek. Aylmer is very troubled how the birthmark resembles in Georgiana’s face. He proclaimed that it is a natural flaw that has affected her vivid human perfection. Since Aylmer is a scientist he propose to Georgiana to get rid of her birthmark once and for all. At first she angrily questions Aylmer’s proposition, but her love for him changes her thoughts and she accepts to permanently get rid of the birthmark.
Do not repent that with so high and pure a feeling, you have rejected the best the earth could offer. Aylmer, dearest Aylmer, I am dying" (Hawthorne 350). Unfortunately, the cost of getting rid of the birthmark was connected to her heart and the dangerousness was not understood until it was too
To compare, Faulkner shares a slice of evidence as to why Emily has an uncontrollable obsession for the dead, “After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” (Faulkner) Given these points, her father becomes arrogant and isolates her from society, or anyone who is willing to take Miss Emily from him. When her father, the only man in the world who has loved her,
Blake underlines the unjust and uncompassionate institutionalized religion as a human construct. Blake suggests that the origins of such social ills are forged by divided selfhood, creating a ‘God’ and social order in their own image. Poem is a remarkably ambitious examination of institutionalized virtues and its progressive enrichment. Blake epitomizes the reasoning through…Man only sees the portion of existence that is comprehendible to his corporeal understanding. Man is unable to apprehend the quintessential idea that virtue is equal to vice; for virtue cannot exist if there is no vice.
However, Gatsby’s great plan that he instructs Daisy to follow is impractical, “He wanted nothing less of Daisy than that she should go to Tom and say: ‘I never loved you.’ After she had obliterated three years with that sentence they could decide upon the more practical measures to be taken. One of them was that, after she was free, they were to go back to Louisville and be married from her house—just as if it were five years ago.” (Fitzgerald 118) Therefore, it goes in conflict with Daisy’s own desires, since Gatsby’s main source of income is mostly from illegal activities, “that drugstore business was just small change, but you’ve got something on now that Walter’s afraid to tell me about.” (Fitzgerald 143) As Gatsby’s career involves illegal activities that need to be kept secret, the nature of Gatsby’s career is far too risky for Daisy to be able to live with, assuming that Daisy and Gatsby would get married. In a way, Daisy knows all along that she is never going to leave Tom for Gatsby, although for a short period of time she too is caught up in the possibility of escape and to live the life that Gatsby dreams of. But, she never truly believes it as much as Gatsby. Even though Daisy is in an unhappy marriage with Tom, she and Tom “weren’t unhappy either.
Well according to Aylmer the birthmark is “deemed an almost fearful distinctness.” Aylmer goes into great detail in providing the location, size, shape, and color of the birthmark. Readers may wonder why does he worry about the mark so much, and Hawthorne provides Aylmer’s thought process. “It was the fatal flaw of humanity which Nature, in one shape or another,
“I learned to recognize the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Dualism is a fundamental component of the human psyche in detail, the personality duality that results in possessing two dissociated characters chiefly good one conversely evil one. The famous novel of “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” illustrates personality disorder throughout the decent Dr. Henry Jekyll who portrays the good side seeking a medicine that separates the sinister part away, subsequently he conducts experiments
When the style and words of multiple passages are put together, they display an explanation of a topic. Shelley discusses that scientific progress/knowledge is dangerous and harmful as it places man above God and destroys his morals. She does this through denoting emotional appeals, imagery, and figures of speech in order to craft the claim in
Altering nature isn’t something that humans should be able to do because it is more powerful than any creation made by man. Aylmer believes that he can correct “what Nature left imperfect in her fairest work!” (4). Aylmer, who stands as a symbol for science, obsessively seeks to remove Georgiana’s birthmark and make her ideal. When mankind attempts to change nature in the pursuit of perfection, it never ends well as seen in Aylmer’s attempts at
