The main places that are important and add to the story are Alaska because Chris died there and South Dakota because Chris worked there and met important characters there. The setting creates a natural and idyllic mood. The nature of the places Chris travels creates a feeling of wanderlust, yet anxiety because of what could happen. The opening scenes of Into the Wild are in third-person narration, which adds clarity to the story. The opening scene is of Jim Gallien finding Chris on the side of the road and then giving him a ride to Chris’s destination.
Grendel vs. “The monster” Grendel in the novel by John Gardner is very similar to “the monster” in Frankenstein by Mary Shelly because both Grendel and the monster feel like outsiders, they kill humans, and they both are able to learn new things. Grendel feels like an outsider because he knows he is different and he wants to know the truth of why he is what he is and why God made him that way. Grendel asks his mother “Why are we here?” which means that he is doubting his existence. Grendel kills humans in the mead hall while they are asleep. “Swiftly, softly, I will move from bed to bed and destroy them all, swallow every last man.” He kills them because he was affected by the shapers death.
He calls on the “spirits of the dead” and “wandering ministers” so that the “cursed and hellish monster drink deep of agony” and feel “the despair that now torments me”(179). The monster is also capable of wanton destruction when he burns down the DeLaceys’ house and dances “with fury around the devoted cottage”(123) like a savage. Finally, the monster seems to enjoy the pain he causes Frankenstein: “your sufferings will satisfy my everlasting hatred” (181) he writes to Victor. Were these pieces of evidence taken out of context, the reader would surely side with Frankenstein. But Shelley prevents such one-sidedness by letting the monster tell his version of the story.
Even if that means he has to ask a stranger or a friend to finish the job for him. In the quote he claims not to be selfish, even though all he cares about is killing his creation to make himself feel better. Since these are Frankenstein 's last wishes, it foreshadows his death and makes it so he won 't be the one to kill the creature. This quote also tells us that even in his delirious state Victor is still enraged with the creature, which means that he will not die in peace, but disturbed and unfulfilled. The creature becomes defensive.
Odysseus told the defeated and now blind cyclops his identity. He risked him and his entire crew of danger and curse. Because he bragged to Polyphemus, the travel home from the war was cursed with danger and it was going to take a long time. Belle and Odysseus are both heroes but they do to have the same
This is shown when Victor's monster escapes from the lab and the individuals the monster faces are negatively affected. Any time Frankenstein’s monster came in contact with another individual, people would either be too scared and run away from him or attempt to kill him. For instance, after the monster was brought to life, he describes how disoriented he was; how we had to understand the basic of being human and grasp standard knowledge of how to read and write; this way, he could be socially acceptable. Moreover, in seeking guidance, the monster first visited a random man who later ran away in terror, and after that, he wandered into a village, which also proved that individuals will not accept the monster, primarily because he is far too grotesque; and so he was ostracized by the people. Enraged by the fact, Victor’s creation begins to have little regard for the people around him, especially those who reject him.
Victor travels to a small island to begin his research in order to create a female for the creature. Eventually, Victor fears that the creature will reproduce with his new mate infesting the world. Therefore , he destroys the new creature before he finishes stating that “Even if they were to leave Europe, and inhabit the deserts of the new world, yet one of the first results of those sympathies for which the daemon thirsted would be children, and a race of devils would be propagated upon the earth” trying to justify his actions. Even though, the creature promised that he will stop his crimes(Curran). Victor’s actions just makes the creature more miserable and resentful.
Mary Shelly in Frankenstein described a character Victor who is cursed by his own knowledge. Young Victor fascinated by natural forces, learned chemistry and use his knowledge to generate a new life. Even though Victor succeeded in his pursuit, but the implication of his own knowledge brought curse not only to himself but his family and friends too.

An innocent Justin sacrificed her life because of Victor’s creation, and same for Victor’s best friend Henry and fiancé Elizabeth, they also lost their lives.
Technology is portrayed as the opposite of nature; where nature is pure and regenerative technology is corrupt and mentally taxing. Shelley characterizes anything dealing with scientific advancement as technology and, as a result, corrosive. Immediately after returning to college from his invigorating trip to the countryside, Frankenstein receives a horrid letter from his father detailing Victors brother William’s death. Shelley heavily juxtaposes nature and technology in through this event. Victor goes from “feelings of unbridled joy and hilarity” (76) while in the countryside of Ingolstadt to feelings of “grief and fear” (82) once he reenters the college.
Elisha is having second thoughts about his orders to kill a man that he has never seen. Elisha looks out the window at the death upon him, Gad supports him telling him to push everything out of his mind, letting him know that it is war, but Elisha cannot do it. “The tragedy of man is that he doesn't know how to distinguish between day and night.” It means the person doesn't know the difference between night and day. The impact of literature throughout his books is definitely high. Not only is there a dawn but there is meaning between night and day which could mean a variety of things like Good and Evil or Life and Death.
Many of the advantages are that we can now successfully avoid illness and diseases because we can take out the gene that engenders it. Frankenstein is an example of a disadvantage of using genetic engineering. Victor Frankenstein is the creator of a monster who learns that because he is ugly and everyone hates him, he can kill Victor’s friends and family for making him the way he is. Victor creates the monster in order to destroy the meaning of death but the actions he takes after creating the monster leads to many more deaths than expected.
