Dear Professor Froisy,
I have chosen to write about the relationship between the characters in The Birthmark by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I feel that the story between them with all of their emotions really tells a true story in how relationships are played out in todayâ€™s society and that it can offer a lot of insight to those who take a moment and see how it would apply to their lives as well. I am hoping that I can manage to make this entire essay make sense without too much rambling but if I am being honest this type of writing is probably the hardest for me as I do not have any real connection to it and do not actually find it ...view middle of the document...
So through this entire material you get to see where she struggles to hold on to what she considers a vital part of her, while he is fighting to have this blemish and inherent impurity removed in order to have this idea of perfection in a wife. The relationship suffers from this as he even begins to dream about removing it himself only to find out that it was attached to her heart and would require him to rend that very organ from here in order to remove it.
As the story progresses it really starts to show the absolute love that Georgiana has for Aylmer with how she will go through with the attempts to remove it and basically take whatever risks are associated. At one point she passes out when she sees his reaction upon looking at the birthmark and it changes her mentality towards the birthmark completely. She is madly in love with her husband and does not desire to see that look ever again so she full heartedly complies with the removal of the birthmark.
The characters really show a back and forth pull that so many relationships do and you can start to see the underlining...
