Abstract

This study consists of an examination and explication of setting, character, and action in "Rappaccini's Daughter" in accordance with the view that the story is a presentation of Giovanni's unsuccessful "fall" into maturity--a "fall" which involves both his entrance into the world in the form imposed upon it by human knowledge, and his unsuccessful attempt to establish a human relationship based on love.
