Finally, Shelley makes the father/son dynamic in this novel difficult and realistic. Throughout the book, Frankenstein and his father, Alphonse, go through challenging times and find it difficult to see eye to eye on certain things. When Frankenstein is creating his monster, we see another father/son relationship go through similar problems. As Frankenstein finishes his creation he realizes what he has actually done. But it is almost as if he is in a trance while creating the monster.
Drastically impacted by the time spent on the creation of his monster, Frankenstein finds that he not only ignored his own life, but also the lives of those who surround him. Frankenstein’s realization of his isolation is apparent when, “the same feelings which made [him] neglect the scenes around [him] caused [him] also to forget those friends who were so many miles absent, and whom [he] had not seen for so long a time” (40). The root of Frankenstein’s isolation was the two years spent on the creation of his monster, as he was separated from all of society. In the context of the novel, the words “neglect” and “absent” reveal Frankenstein’s isolation atop of his limited emotion. Frankenstein’s representation as the brain of the body reflects on his longing desire to feel emotion as a result of his isolated emotions.
Frankenstein punishes himself, his family and his consciousness suffered because of his arrogance of trying to have the power of God. The consequences of playing God is the cost of human life, even though Victor gave life to one creature, he is responsible for the deaths of five. Victor’s fruitless attempt at being God cost him his family, happiness, and himself. Even though Victor had not planned for it to happen this way, the results speak for themselves. Playing God leads to destruction and has consequences.
Participation trophies are giving children an unrealistic outlook on life by giving them what they did not deserve. If a child comes in fourth, fifth or even third and second in some sports don 't deserve a trophy for showing up. Kids usually outgrow the participation stage when they get into middle school, but before that is the crucial learning skills a kid goes through and if they want to continue a sport or not. “ In youth sports, no two words are more inflammatory than “participation trophy,” those “awards” given to kids just for showing up, regardless of how well they play”. Says Chris Waller from Gale opposing viewpoints.
Spanking is good for the mind because it teaches children. The author also states that a study shows that people who are spanked perform better at school and is most likely to want to college than their peers who had never been physically disciplined. Also stated in the article, research lack much info because it was difficult to find subjects who had never been spanked. In the study that was conducted it shows that results that others do not show because it involved 2600 individuals that never been spanked. It was difficult in more traditional time to find subjects.
He didn't bring necessary supplies for their escape. Robert is put in an uncomfortable situation of whether to turn back or pursue his dreams. In the book Frankenstein, Robert says, “There is something terribly appalling in our situation, yet my courage and hopes do not desert me. Yet it is terrible to reflect that the lives of all these men are endangered through me. If we are lost, my mad schemes are the cause” (Shelley 158).
The creature’s emotional anguish caused him to snap and proves that he has a very complex human mind. Frankenstein succeeded in creating a human, but he “made” him a monster by depriving and failing to care for his most basic human needs. A reader of Frankenstein comes away with a very different image of the creature than what is accepted by society. The creature becomes human-like to most readers and while his monstrous crimes are not excusable; they are
Babies follow the people around them. They grab information from their surroundings. They come into the world without a clue of what’s going on and I think its parents jobs to lead them to the right side. If babies were truly born evil, I don’t think people would be so excited to have kids. In the news, I see plenty of teenagers and even younger kids doing terrible things but they were said to have a purpose for it.
Alienation is the common attribute between the two main characters. Victor Frankenstein is perhaps the only character that more or less chooses alienation by himself because of his desire for knowledge. In the end, Victor becomes the “prisoner of his own creation.” On the other hand, “The Monster” is from birth abandoned in solitude, it is the experiences the monster encounters in life that reflect his actions. The monster is greeted with disgust and violence even though he introduces himself with friendly intentions. By giving the Creature a voice, the reader can sympathize with the suffering caused by the humans.
This was evidenced by Frankenstein rejecting the creature due to its physical appearance. He was also afraid that the creature resembled how he felt on the inside. Frankenstein tried to run from his emotions while the creature was discovering his. Mary Shelley described this encounter with the De Laceys after observing the family for a considerable time. “I felt sensations of a peculiar and overpowering nature: they were a mixture of pain and pleasure, such as I had never before experienced, either from hunger or cold, warmth or food.” I do not believe that Frankenstein was a bad person, but one that was irresponsible and afraid.
So, these are some horrible effects that the children and the parents experience from being surrounded by too much technology. They have let it control their lives. A possible counter claim to this idea is that the theme of Ray Bradbury’s “The Veldt” is actually about family. “The Veldt” could be about family because in the story, the parents don’t spend very much time with their kids. Although this argument is true, it fails to account that the parents don’t spend time with their kids
This shows that the monster is close to being a human because if he had feelings then he wouldn’t have cared about having a friend, saving someone, or about anything that requires emotion. When it comes near the end of the novel the monster tells Victor that if he meets his demand to make him a companion he would leave humanity alone. The monster explains that everything including Lucifer had some form of company, but he is forced to be alone. Victor feels a conflict with creating this new being, he wants it done so that the monster will leave everyone alone, but he doesn’t want to doom humanity if he creates a new monster that may end up the same way as his first one and they decide to have kids. After creating it and completing the deal, he tears the new creation apart causing the monster to be forever alone.
Frankenstiens monster is most frequently seen, as of course, a monster. In fact he is, but he has the mind and spirit of a developing human child. This behavior exhibits itself through the creatures fear of being alone and seeking attention and love, being completely unbiased and unjudgemental at the dawn of his creation, and his lack of knowledge of the world around him. First, the creature tends to panic when alone and craves company as a child does. "While the need for relatedness is perhaps most clearly evident when discussing abnormal development, it is undoubtedly a fundemental part of normal development as well.
