What a classic gothic gem Giovanni studies in Padua and meets Beatrice the beautiful daughter of Dr Rappaccini an obsessed scientist with a fatal love for science Every day they meet in the doctor's garden But it is a very special garden an Eden of poisenous flowers Beatrice seems to be immune against the poisenous flowers surrounding her Giovanni on the other hand already feels the impact of the fatal flowers on himself Is there a cure against the deadly threat Prof Baglioni a competitor of the critically seen Rappaccini gives Giovanni an antidote Collin's vase Will it lead to a happy ending Beatrice is a femme fatale in the truest sense of the word I absolutely loved the storytelling the allusion to the Garden of Eden the dualism of science vs nature the frame story It's a compelling classic you shouldn't miss Absolutely recommended

Rappaccini's DaughterR protecting preserving and promoting the world's literature in affordable high uality modern editions that are true to the original wo. Normally I’m not a huge Hawthorne fan I read The Scarlet Letter in high school because I had to do so In the end I did like the book It’ll never be one of my favorite pieces but it is a great one to discuss and analyze I read Young Goodman Brown and was not similarly moved I figured Hawthorne wasn’t my cup of tea After reading Goss’ The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter I was intrigued by the story of Beatrice Rappaccini As I was stuck in jury duty and I had already finished my other novel I figured I would give the short story a go I’m so glad I didIt is beautifully told perhaps I like Hawthorne when he’s less verbose It’s a uick story that races to introduce us to Giovanni and Beatrice Giovanni sees Beatrice in her father’s garden and falls for hersort of It’s not love even he admits this It’s like attraction He’s a butterfly who is attracted to a Venus fly trap Giovanni learns uite a bit about Beatrice and her father a doctor who does experiments with plants Even in such a short piece Hawthorne is able to focus on the two young people and get to the heart of who they are The fact the story is from Giovanni’s point of view allows the reader to go on his uest with him It’s the ending that makes your heart just break for Beatrice So few lines dedicated to her yet the piece does her character justice Rappaccini’s Daughter is an interesting gothic tale that will make you ponder gender issues loveattraction and the power we all have to hurt one another
