As you can see evidence suggests that Aylmer has love for both science and Georgiana, but his love for science exceeds more greatly than his love for Georgiana. Immediately after getting married Aylmer asked Georgiana to get the birthmark removed, and of course by the use of science. It seems that he wants to treat her like a simple experiment nothing more. Aylmer states that it shocks him that something so little ruined her appearance, and tries to convince Georgiana to scientifically get rid of the mark. Hawthorne provides proof by writing, “No, dearest Georgiana, you came so nearly perfect from the hand of Nature, that this slightest possible defect----which we hesitate whether to term a defect or a beauty----shocks me, as being
Equally Aylmer and Dr. Rappiccini, both characters in Hawthorne’s works causes destruction of human life with selfish aims to perfect the woman of their choice. In the case of Aylmer’s love interest in science, just as with the case of Beatrice’s father, blinds him to the true beauty and humanity of the woman before him. Aylmer views Georgiana’s birthmark as a symbol of imperfection and tries to remove it. At the end of the story, Georgiana say, "My poor Aylmer," she repeated, with a more than human tenderness, "you have aimed loftily; you have done nobly. Do not repent that with so high and pure a feeling, you have rejected the best the earth could offer.
She clutches at a toy society claims she should have already outgrown. Her eyes are described as “cautious… depthless, as if they’ve been torn from the inside out by tiny needles and pins.” As goes the expression, the eyes are the windows to the soul. This passage indicates that Clara has lived through a lot, and her innocence is lost. The reader is left to guess at what could cause a reclusive child such pain until the end of the novel when her kidnapping is detailed. Later when Maguire exposes the complexity of this Cinderella, we see that she does not conform to the fairy tale image of the beautiful maiden.
Firstly, Friar Lawrence is not a voice of reason in the play as he is a hypocritical person. For instance, the phrase “Two such opposèd kings encamp them still,//In man as well as herbs—grace and rude will.//And where the worser is predominant,//Full soon the canker death eats up that plant.” implies that Friar Lawrence believes that when unruly human desire is more prevailing in a person than divine virtue, the person would be destroyed by their own actions. The phrase “rude will” could refer to a person’s selfish individual desires while “grace” could refer to god’s will or fate. This implies that when a person disregards fate and instead goes after his own selfish desires, he will destroy himself. However, the phrase “But come, young waverer, come, go with me,//In one respect I’ll thy assistant be,//For this alliance may//so happy prove//To turn your households ' rancor to pure love.” suggests that Friar Lawrence completely ignores his own advice when agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet.
Frankenstein is educated by alchemy teachers who encourages him for this obsession to science. His determination to know the secret of life results in terrible events. Mary convinces us that ignorance is a bliss in this case . Obviously, it is concluded by Victor Frankenstein as he advised Walton to avoid ambition in pursuit of scientific discovery . Man thinks he can challenge his creator by undertaking this responsibility.
I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely." Through symbolism, Steinbeck is conveying that ignorance and isolation can have extreme consequences and we learn that negligence can turn an individual towards the wrong person.By
Although selfish desires do not always isolate an individual, selfishness is often a cause of human alienation. Frankenstein exposes, through Victor Frankenstein’s actions, that acting in one’s own self interest, and focusing only upon oneself, is the most profound source of human alienation. While Frankenstein claims that his actions and his scientific discovery are for the purpose of improving the scientific community, Frankenstein appears to truly seek glory and fame. Frankenstein states “A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many… would owe their being to me” (Shelley 36). Through this statement, Frankenstein exposes his true cause for creating a new species—a cause that has no intent of improving scientific discovery but rather an intent that focuses just on oneself.
This mindset cause the refusal by the not only strangers but by the own family. The society without knowing the intentions encounters such innocent beings creating them a monster that they were never before. Knowing that beauty is regarded with outer flight of the imagination still it s much praised. It is a fact that the heart that is beautiful tends to make happier than the face that is pretty. The suppression of an individual is very hurtful as the society isolates the individual provoking them to be the monster that they once thought
“But those with an evil heart, seem to have a talent for destroying anything beautiful which is about to bloom.” This quote relates to the text because Miss Strangeworth has an evil heart without knowing it and she destroyed good peoples feelings and in the end when her roses were destroyed, something beautiful of hers was destroyed. (Roses) The possibility of Evil by Shirley Jackson explains that there is an evil everywhere, we can not stop it at all. Miss Strangeworth’s thought, actions and the setting plus the rising action and exposition demonstrate it. Miss strangeworth tried stopping the evil going on in “her town” by giving criticism to things/ people that she didn’t approve of and or didn’t like that she didn’t feel was perfect. Miss
“‘Noblest dearest, tenderest wife,’ cried Aylmer, rapturously, “doubt not my power. I have already given this matter the deepest thought --- thought which might almost have enlightened me to create a being less perfect than yourself.” “I feel myself fully competent to render this dear cheek as faultless as its fellow; and then, most beloved, what will be my triumph when I shall have corrected what Nature left imperfect in her fairest work!” The story takes these two opposing symbols and creates the theme of Nature versus action against nature. “Man playing God,” is a common example, and in this story, Aylmer tries to remove the birthmark. Aylmer is trying to change something that Nature has produced, and in most cases, man loses when playing God. The birthmark fades as the wife dies.
