Despite this, the idea of the Demon being of bad nature is just the surface description of the character since he “sowed evil without enjoyment”.

Firstly, Friar Lawrence is not a voice of reason in the play as he is a hypocritical person. For instance, the phrase “Two such opposèd kings encamp them still,//In man as well as herbs—grace and rude will.//And where the worser is predominant,//Full soon the canker death eats up that plant.” implies that Friar Lawrence believes that when unruly human desire is more prevailing in a person than divine virtue, the person would be destroyed by their own actions. The phrase “rude will” could refer to a person’s selfish individual desires while “grace” could refer to god’s will or fate. This implies that when a person disregards fate and instead goes after his own selfish desires, he will destroy himself. However, the phrase “But come, young waverer, come, go with me,//In one respect I’ll thy assistant be,//For this alliance may//so happy prove//To turn your households ' rancor to pure love.” suggests that Friar Lawrence completely ignores his own advice when agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet.

The sympathy helps to show the blending of good and evil, similar to yin and yang, with a small amount of each in the other. The conflict between good and evil in the novel can be seen not just in the actual conflict between Frankenstein and the monster, but within the character’s personalities
