"The Birthmark" The "Birthmark" by Hawthorne has an interesting perspective when it comes to what one will do because of self love. It depicts a man that is so obsessed with being a success that he is the ultimate failure. It is not just in scientific things but also the failure of being a kind, loving husband to his wife. He is so self centered. It shows us how we have to be careful in trying to become a success that we don't hurt the ones closest to us. Words are the thing that killed his wife more than any experiment could.
