Rappaccini's daughter

  1. 1. Rappaccini’s Daughter<br /> Percy Mao 26/06/2011<br />
  2. 2. Beatrice <br /><ul><li>The beautiful daughter of Dr. Rappaccini. </li></ul>Beatrice is a redundant and energy girl. She looks healthy and beauty. Beatrice is confined to the lush and locked gardens filled with poisonous plants by her father.<br />Rappaccini <br />Rappaccini is a professor. He looked sallow, emaciated and sickly looking. Rappaccini produced too much poison plants. These plants all dangerous. He has a bigger special garden.<br />
  3. 3. Giovanni<br />Giovanni lived in a small town in Italy. He is a remarkable beauty of a person and he studies at the University of Padua. Than he fell in love with Beatrice.<br />The door<br />Giovanni found a private entrance too this garden. He visits Beatrice everyday in the garden. <br />
  4. 4. When Giovanni first saw Beatrice in the garden, he fell in love. One day he found a private entrance to this garden. Giovanni visits the garden to see Beatrice. <br />
  5. 5. They are fall in love<br /><ul><li>Everyday Giovanni enters the garden and visits Beatrice . But Giovanni never touched her hair.</li></li></ul><li>One day when Giovanni come back home, he saw a spider on his desk. After he handles the spider was dead. He know he was become a poison.<br />
  6. 6. <ul><li>Beatrice urges Giovanni to look past her poisonous exterior and see her pure and innocent essence, creating great feelings of doubt in Giovanni.</li></li></ul><li>Dr. Bagliionigive Giovanni some medicine that can help Giovanni and Beatrice become normal. And after another meeting with Baglioni, Giovanni brings a powerful antidote to Beatrice so that they can be together, but the antidote kills Beatrice rather than destroy her poisonous nature. Beatrice drinker a little bit of the medicine. <br />
  7. 7. In this short story, Rappaccini’s Daughter, there are three included suspects that could be blamed for Beatrice’s death. I believe Giovanni is the most reliable suspect. Giovanni indeed did love her in the beginning of the story, but as the story went along, his perception’s changed. Giovanni is the one who gives Beatrice the medicine that kills her. He hands he a vial of medicine, and tell her this will cure her. I think this is his fault because he never questioned Rappaccini. Maybe he insists on taking this with her, to cover up the fact that he knows this is poisoned. By doing what Rappaccini has told him to, he killed Beatrice whether he knew it was going to happen or not. Giovanni was the only one who could have destroyed it, but in the end, her death gets blamed on him.<br />
