Georgians transformation 2000-07-06 In The Birthmark by Nathaniel Hawthorne Georgianas futile attempt to be flawless by cooperating in her own murder doesnt make her any wiser especially because such a sacrifice does not earn her closeness with her husband The character of Georgiana epitomizes the virtues upheld by the conventions of her time she is beautiful docile and has no ambitions of her own other than to make her husband happy In addition to this apparent perfect union is a singular mark deeply interwoven as it were with the texture and substance of her face Hawthorne 11 The birthmark is differently interpreted by all Initially Georgiana thinks of the birthmark as a charm and Aylmer knows not whether to term the birthmark a defect or a beauty Hawthorne 11 Most persons of her own sex refers it as the bloody hand that Quite destroys the effect of Georgianas beauty Hawthorne 11 While her admirers were wont to say that some fairy at her birth-hour had laid her tiny hand upon the infants cheek and left this impress the birthmark there in token of the magic endowments that were to give her such sway over all hearts Hawthorne 11 Georgianas casual approach towards the birthmark reveals while she answers No indeed when her husband asks her has it never occurred to you Georgiana that the mark upon your cheek might be removed Hawthorne 10 Aylmer however visions the birthmark as Hawthorne says small blue stains which sometimes occur in the purest statuary marble 11 Later on Georgiana soon learns to shudder as her husbands hatred towards the birthmark considerably increases Hawthorne 12 Aylmers obsession soon starts reflecting in Georgiana She at this point ignores all warnings and falls prey to her husbands ambition of removing the birthmark of which he although is convinced of the perfect practicability Hawthorne 13 Georgiana learns from Aylmers dream
