Publisher's Summary

In this classic Hawthorne short story set in the late 18th century, the ambitious young scientist Aylmer cannot bear the fact that his otherwise flawlessly beautiful wife Georgiana bears a tiny birthmark on her cheek, an imperfection that he believes his scientific methods can cure. Devoted wholeheartedly to her husband, Georgiana allows Aylmer to work his scientific wonders upon her, so that the blemish no may no longer torment him. But tampering with nature can prove a fearful business....

The Birthmark

Any additional comments?

This short story by Nathanial Hawthorne was well written.Paul Woodson does a nice job narrating.A husband loves his flawless wife,well she has one flaw,a birthmark on her face.She will let him work his magic to try to get rid of it for his sake.Sometimes things should be left alone!
