Rappaccini’s daughter Rappaccini’s daughter Presentation Transcript

  • Rappaccini’s Daughter
    Accursed! Accursed!
    An evil mockery of beauty.
    Giovanni Beatrice Rappaccini
    Winnie Wu
    24/05/2011
  • Rappaccini emerged into view, and showed himself to be tall, sallow, and sickly- looking.
    The plant’s gorgeousness seemed fierce, passionate, even unnatural.
  • Beatrice Redundant with beauty, health, energy.
    She lives in the poison garden with her father.
    • flowers wither
    • the beautiful insect grew faint and fell at her feet… shivered... was dead
  • Giovanni visits the garden
    to see Beatrice.
  • Beatrice falls in love with Giovanni.
  • Remarkable beauty of person.
    • Flowers droop
    • Spiders make convulsive gripe and die.
  • Beatrice is no longer lonely
    because they fell in love with each other.
    Giovanni will have to stay with Beatrice all the time.
  • Beatrice wanted to live with humans.
    Giovanni wanted to save Beatrice.
    There was surprise in her face, but brightened
    by a simple and kind expression of pleasure.
    So he gave some medicine to Beatrice.
  • Tragic ending
    At the end of the story, Beatrice died. Anyway, they still couldn’t be together.
    To Beatrice, as the poison had been to life, so the powerful antidote was death; and thus the poor victim of man's ingenuity perished there, at the feet of her father and Giovanni.
