8.Explain the irony in Frankenstein's actions Even after Victor’s mother dies, and she wished for him to take care of the family and to wed Elizabeth, Victor spends his time in science and neglects his family, shutting off contact for 2 years and not returning home until 6 years later. A bigger show of irony is Frankenstein’s constant return to isolation. Even after becoming somewhat mentally insane, Henry restores his friend and rehabilitates him back to his previous health. Although not fully recovered, Victor returns home and decides not to tell his family, but rather go back into nature for more isolation, He did not learn from his actions and after the monster pays him a visit, Frankenstein continues his mission in isolation. (Takes place in chapter 9 and 10) 9.What does the death of William symbolize?
I never really fully cried, but I did loose a lot of sleep after my grandparents death. My mother was worried for a while because I would not sleep and my health was beginning to diminish. She ended up taking me to the doctor and they declared that I was suffering from insomnia.

But you gotta let him know you’s there.” (Baldwin, Sonny's
In the case of Henrietta Lacks and her family, the mistreatment of doctors and lack of informed consent defined nearly 60 years of the family’s history. Henrietta Lacks and her children had little to no information about serious medical procedures and the use of Henrietta’s cells in research. Henrietta’s cells launched a multibillion-dollar industry without her consent and doctors even took advantage of her children’s lack of education to continue their research without questions: “[Doctor] did not explain why he was having someone draw blood from Deborah… he wrote a phone number and told her to use it for making more appointments to give more blood” (188). Deborah did not have the knowledge to understand the demands or requests the doctors made of her, and the doctors did not inform her explicitly. Skloot showed that the lack of consent and uninformed patients, by the use of logical conventions, not only ran through the family’s history but still occurred to them

Henry’s personality has changed; he has become depressed and withdrawn. “When he came home, though, Henry was very different.” (Erdrich____) Furthermore, Henry has lost interest in the car. “Henry had not even looked at the car since he’d gotten home.” (Erdrich____) This act shows that they are moving apart from one another.
