Aylmer Like Dr. Rappaccini is driven by desire to prefect a woman. In this short story, it is his wife Georgiana. Although Aylmer really does love his wife he can’t control his love for science. Hawthorne writes, “His love for his young wife might prove the stronger of the two; but could only be ny intertwining itself with his love of science, and uniting the strength of the latter to his own” (Meyer, 399). Aylmer undoubtedly loves his wife and admires her beauty at first.
Towards, the end of the short story Steinbeck beautiful describes Elisa’s realization that equality cannot be achieved and it is just an illusion that is controlled by men.

This topic will be discussed and explained to give more insight on how the characters were affected based on their circumstances. In “The Birthmark” Georgiana is a loyal wife who wants to please her husband. In the beginning, Georgiana’s relationship with Aylmer is normal since they were just married. Aylmer 's view of their marriage differs. Hawthorne describes him, saying, “He had devoted himself, however, too unreservedly to scientific studies ever to be weaned from them by any second passion” (Hawthorne).

Aylmer explains to Georgiana that she “…came so nearly perfect from the hand of nature, that the slightest possible defect … shocks [him]” (220). Aylmer perceives that the world is full of imperfections in nature; including the birthmark on Georgiana’s face. Later on, in the story Aylmer is bothered by the imperfections of his experiments that he presents to Georgiana as well; showing us his desire of perfection. At the same time, however, Georgiana believes that you have to be physically beautiful to be loved. She tells Aylmer, to “either remove [the] dreadful hand, or take [her] wretched life” (223).
The daughter who confesses her love for him will get the most land. King Lear believes that his favorite daughter Cordelia will love him the most. Once Cordelia admits that she does not love him as much he thought, King Lear’s ruin begins. Throughout the play King Lear realizes that his daughters are not who he thought they were and he loses all his power as a result of his wrongful thinking. First off, King Lear realizes that Cordelia is not who he thought she was he banishes her because he believes that she is in the wrong for not giving him what he wants to hear.
Although Helena had a strong Philia love for Hermia she betrayed her by telling Demetrius their plans to elope. Helena thought that by betraying her friend through telling Demetrius their plans, he would once again love her which was not the case. In the play when Hermia address her friend as fair, we see Helena agitated and responds by telling her, “Call you me fair? That fair again unsay, Demetrius loves your fair, O happy fair” (1.1.181-182). This shows how Helena is angry at her friend because the man she loves is in love with Hermia.
She, however, manages to get the upper hand in the end. The Wife of Bath, seems to be only authentically happy when she has mastery over her husbands. They have to willingly hand over this power, consciously or unconsciously. She, as described in the general prologue, “knew of all the cures for love” and “ at that game she was a past mistress.” thus she was able to get the control of the relationship and be the dominant part. Another example is that the Wife of Bath convinced the Knight ,by explaining that the things, which are her being old, plain, beasly born and poor, making the knight prevent him from loving her are in fact what should make him love her, that he had to give up his power in order for her to acquire it, for if he had not given her control of the partnership, both would have been unhappy through the rest of their lives.
Lord Henry even gave particular offense for female of the species, he said to Dorian Gray that ‘women are a decorative sex, no woman is a genius and women represent the triumph of matter over mind’. But, Dorian ignores Lord Henry’s advice and even invited him and Basil Hallward to watch Sibyl Vane’s act. This part was my favorite because Dorian Gray did not care what other people thought and truly believed himself that Sibyl Vane was a women that suites him and he was confident in his decision. The way of Oscar Wilde wrote this book was interesting because of good plot and twisted ending that made me hard to predict which is great. I loved it when this story touched about beauty and consequences if we did wrong, that was when Dorian Gray tried to kill the portrait, reflected as his soul made him killed himself.
