A classic tale first published in December 1844. It is the story of a young student of medicine who suffers the consequences of ignoring the warning of his adviser and falls in love with the beautiful Beatrice, confined to a locked garden by her father. "Rappaccini's Daughter" has all the attributes of Hawthorne's fiction: allegory, symbolism, ambiguity and fantasy. Spell-binding!
