If not for the birthmark on Georgiana’s face, she would have been perfect in Aylmer’s obsessed eyes, dare say perhaps, immortal. He leaves behind all he knows of a life dedicated to science and its workings, to marry Georgiana. That’s a big deal, so it makes the reader wonder why Aylmer is so distraught over this minute detail. Despite Georgiana’s many attributes, Aylmer, a man of science, obsesses himself with removing the flaw from his wife’s face. During his research and experimentation on his willing wife, Aylmer begins to think that the facial blemish held deep roots into his wife’s spiritual core.
Irony also envelops Ann and Steven's immoral copulation because it was initially John's idea for Steven to visit while she was alone. In "The Birthmark" after long isolation and several removal attempts Aylmer finally has an auspicious solution. His concoction does work, however (which is a fancy word for but), as the birthmark on Georgiana's cheek fades away so does her life. By extracting her one diminutive and frivolous imperfection he also removes her

In the book both sisters had to deal with their spouse cheating on them but they both just wanted revenge on their husband and boyfriend at first but that wasn’t the right way to go about it. One of my favorite lines in the book is in the chapter where the spiritual counselors tell Vanessa and Thomas that just because god says its okay to divorce and adulterer doesn’t mean you should. I think that in this day and age, we are so quick to throw in the towel and sometimes god really wants us to look at the “for better or for worse” part. I think that if your husband or wife was to make a mistake we shouldn’t be so quick to get a divorce and try to work things out. This book taught me that divorce isn’t the way to solve your problems all though time.

I can’t help what’s past.’ She began to sob helplessly. ‘I did love him once — but I loved you too.’” (140) Gatsby expects that Daisy will be happy to leave Tom behind and break off her marriage with him. Gatsby's dream has been to build a fortune and reclaim the love that he once lost because, as he sees it, he was too poor for Daisy when they first met. This proves my claim because this displays, in Daisy’s words, that Gatsby did expect too much, he expected for her to make a big deal in front of Tom. This proves my thesis because we can see that he expects a lot of Daisy.
Ted Lavender was shot in his head on his way back from peeing. Lieutenant cross blamed himself because he was fantasizing about the girl instead of worrying about the safety of his men. I think this incident brought Jimmy the realization that”he loved Martha more then he loved his men” and realized she did not love him. Jimmy burnt her pictures and letters and decided to change the way he was running things. It took the death of one of the Lieutenants men for him to re-examine the importance of his love for Martha and realize he wasn’t focusing on what should have been his first priority the war and safety of his
