Nathaniel Hawthorne's Rappaccini's Daughter - Nathaniel Hawthorne's Rappaccini's Daughter        American author Nathaniel Hawthorne has been described as a "realist" and one who assesses the American character within the plot lines of his novels.  His story, Rappaccini’s Daughter, follows this style.  Its scenario encompasses the main character of Giovanni Guasconti, a young student who is studying at the University of Padua in a southern region of Italy.  It is Giovanni’s first time away from home and, being of limited resources, must rent an old, dismal, and run-down apartment.  It does however overlook a beautiful garden belonging to a Doctor Giacomo Rappiccini who cultivates it daily with his daughter, Beatrice.  Throughout the course of time, Giovanni falls in love with Beatrice and his courting of her consists of extensive daily walks through the garden.  However, he soon finds out that Rappaccini is no ordinary doctor; the garden he nurtures is of no ordinary shrubbery, but rather one large scientific experiment on medical cures that houses the world’s most poisonous plants.  He also discovers that Beatrice, being raised around such toxins, has been contaminated herself; both her breath and her touch are venomous.  As if that wasn’t enough, Giovanni realizes that the time he spent with Beatrice is having the same effect on him....   [tags: Rappaccini's Daughter Essays]

As Hawthorne identifies in the previous quote, this story is a blatant parallel towards the story of Original Sin. The issue, then, lies in the representation. Who is playing Adam and Eve. Who is Satan and who is God. At first glance it is easy to assume that the two love birds, Giovanni and Beatrice, are Adam and Eve; while Beatrice’s black cloaked father is Satan, and God is either an omniscient overseer, represented in nature, or absent from the story all together....   [tags: Rappaccini's Daughter Essays]

Rappaccini's Daughter Essay: Allegory of the Garden of Eden - Rappaccini's Daughter - Allegory of the Garden of Eden              In the literal sense, Nathaniel Hawthorn's Rappaccini's Daughter is the story about the rivalry between two scientists that ultimately causes the destruction of an innocent young woman. However, when the story is examined on a symbolic level, the reader sees that Rappaccini's Daughter is an allegorical reenactment of the original fall from innocence and purity in the Garden of Eden.

Rappaccini’s Daughter - Perceptions, Impressions, and Interactions - Rappaccini's Daughter - Perceptions, Impressions, and Interactions           Writers often use the characters in a story to make a comment on people's actions.  In "Rappaccini's Daughter," by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the characters make a telling comment on the interaction of people within society.  Hawthorne, a "thinker and artist" (Delbanco 14+), creates characters that are much different from what they seem like initially, and this encourages the reader to look deeper into issues instead of judging things by first impressions, rumors, or appearance.  Cappello defines the judging of people as "how [people], in general, translate or read the world" (263).  Hawthorne probes how people look at one another through his portrayal of Baglioni, Rappaccini, Giovanni, and Beatrice and their reactions with and toward one another....   [tags: Rappaccini's Daughter Essays]

Rappaccini’s Daughter - An Exploration of Human Nature - Rappaccini’s Daughter - An Exploration of Human Nature The key to my understanding Hawthorne’s perspective on Science and Nature in Rappaccini’s Daughter was his cheeky introduction, when he placed himself somewhere between transcendentalists and "pen-and-ink men who address the intellect and sympathies of the multitude" - too unpopular for the multitude, and too popular for the transcendentalists. Choosing not to fit in either camp, he seems to tease us with the merits and deficits of each - science and nature, too....   [tags: Rappaccini's Daughter Essays] 682 words

Man Against God in Nathaniel Hawthorne's Rappaccini's Daughter - Man Against God in Nathaniel Hawthorne's Rappaccini's Daughter In the introduction of the story, Nathaniel Hawthorne describes himself as a writer trapped between two worlds.  His alias, Aubepine, presents abstract concepts that would challenge the simple mind, but compensates for this by designing a dual meaning.  His works contain the literal meaning, and the implicated meaning.  Often, he would have to sacrifice his initial concept by injecting humor or other banal dimensions to the story in order to satisfy the lesser audience.  In this story, a young man from Southern Italy becomes implicated in a scientist's bizarre practice.  Rappaccini sacrifices his daughter's life in the name of science.  His means would resemble black magic in a different timeframe, which trespass the boundaries that man is ideally confined to.              Beatrice is the unfortunate and unwilling subject of her father's experiment.  The daughter's name is an allusion to Dante's guide in Heaven, and his wife in real life.  In the prelapsarian part of this story, the woman grows to know Giovanni intimately, although never touching him.  Giovanni often expresses a need for that in his idle musings.  All this takes place in her father's gardens, or the Garden of Eden.  Ever since birth, her "sister plant" has been the mutating factor that transformed her into human poison.  Often, Rappaccini would summon her help in handling some very dangerous plants.  Her unmatched beauty masks the potential danger that she hosts.  Many a time she would beguile her subjects, although innocently, out of loneliness, illustrating her evil essence.  Giovanni is affected by her beauty in the sense that he loses his rational thought at the mere sight of her, according to sacrifice his life to be with her.  Contrasting her minor sins, her father clearly lacks morals much more....   [tags: Rappaccini's Daughter Essays] 694 words
