Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment Essay, Research Paper
Reality or Illusion
In Nathaniel Hawthorne?s short story Dr. Heidegger?s Experiment, one of the
central ideas of the story revolves around the idea of reality versus illusion. Of course the
overriding theme of the story dealt with the ethical dilemma of changing old age into
youth, still a major part of how the story was interpreted involved a personal decision on
how you took the story; as literal or figurative. The perception that appealed to me the
most was reading the text as literal, and concluding the experiment as reality rather then a
figment of imagination caused by the intoxicating brew.
A couple of points that Hawthorne made led me to believe that the story was
indeed a true testament of the powers of the magical water. The first is rather evident and
straight forward because it happens before a single person even raises glass close to their
lips. I am of course referring to the fifty-five year old rose that was given to Dr.
Heidegger on the eve of his wedding by his bride to be. Heidegger places the rose in the
water so there could be proof of the mysterious water?s power, but in the same act of
proving its power to his guests Hawthorne proves to us the power of the water because
when the rose regains life nobody was drunk or had even attempted to drink the water.
” The crushed and dried petals stirred, and assumed a deepening tinge of crimson,
as if the flower were reviving from a death-like slumber;”(page 3)
It is that clear cut, and completely undeniable considering that five people witnessed the
act and not one had the slightest objection.
After the first drink of the potion until the last, I was still led to the opinion that
what the guests were experiencing was in fact real and completely genuine. At this point I
will point out that it is at this exact moment where the issue of reality versus illusion
begins to take shape. However, while we left to toil with this intriguing notion, it seems
quite intentional on the part of Hawthorne to make us decide on which side we are for. I
would say his reasoning for dividing us would be to point out that while it may be real or a
delusion it?s ethical and moral message should be clear cut to everyone. Backtracking for
a second though, I would also like to dispute the argument of illusion as some people fight
in favor, of on the sole occurrence of the old images in the mirror. It seems to me that as
I mentioned above, a ploy set by Hawthorne to add a little twist to the story, and give us
the readers something to think about. While we could argue that what they are seeing is a
direct influence of the potion it would be far stretched to say that what they felt and how
they acted was fake too. Keeping in mind that these people are very old and probably way
passed their days of jumping around dancing about, it is pretty hard to say that this water
gave them enough energy and vigor to move around like youngsters but still be contained
in their old bodies. The men especially would have been hurt while the struggled like
young men in the favor of the widow as they had done with such ease. It is also a fact the
Doctor himself had seen, and without the prejudice of the drink I might add, the
transformation because he refers the men as “gay young men” (page 7) when the widow
asks for his hand in a dance.
A final example of the water?s power should not be sought any farther than the last
few pages upon which it can be found that the life of a deceased butterfly was once again
made possible by the healing nature of the water. As it clearly written the story is not told
from the stand point of the butterfly so that it might be influenced by the drink, it is told
from afar, and all who were in the story, especially the Doctor, could testify that they
witnessed the rebirth of the insect as it happened to land on the head of the Doctor.
The points I have made provided ample proof in my own mind to the notion that
this story in fact was not a delusionary tale, but rather a fictional tale meant to be
perceived as real. It is, however debatable, but what is not is the underlying message of
not to mess with mother nature, and how man if he could regain his youth, man would
probably make the same mistakes twice if he was in fact given the chance to “do it all
again.”
