David Kesterson in "Margaret Fuller on Hawthorne" from Hawthorne and Women: Engendering and Expanding the Hawthorne Tradition quotes Margaret Fuller's description of Beatrice's perfect love and femininity:

"The Birth Mark" and "Rappaccini's Daughter" ‘embody truths of profound importance in shapes of aerial elegance'; in these stories 'shine the loveliest ideal of love and the beauty of feminine purity' (Kesterton 71). (courtesy of University of Massachusetts Press)
