Analyze and Explain the subtexts of ″The Birth-Mark.″ Similarly to Poe′s and Melville′s works, Hawthorne′s tales operate on multiple levels.

Analyze and Explain the subtexts of ″The Birth-Mark.″ Similarly to Poe′s and Melville′s works, Hawthorne′s tales operate on multiple levels. The story seems to be a classic example of Romanticism, in that a scientist of the Enlightenment thinks he is godlike and above the laws of God and nature. On another level it can be read (or even at the same time) from a feminist standpoint as a man attempts to control the physicality of his wife. Please explain how these various levels of subtext work and what they accomplish.
