Arrogant, cruel, brutal, and we can use all the synonyms of those words to describe Aylmer’s character. It was his arrogance, what made him think, he is a scientist. It was his cruelty, what made him treat Georgiana like dirt. It was his brutality, what kills Georgiana. But after all this there is a question remain.
Was it all his fault? Was he the only one to blame for? If we take a look at the story from a different angel can’t we say that, Georgiana is also to blame for her lack of self-esteem.

Not even Aylmer now hated it so much as she.” Evan after reading Aylmer’s science journal where there are more failure and hardly any success, she didn’t say any thing to him instead she said, it had made her worship him more than ever. She could show a little self-esteem at any point in the story. It might have stopped him from the wrongdoing. She could have lived and most probably he would have put the birthmark out of his mind.
