Although Beowulf shows traits of abnormal power, like Grendel and his mother, his motifs are interpreted differently. Grendel and his mother are represented as monsters, through their physical appearance, as well as their horrific killings. The monstrosity of Grendel is directly seen through his physical appearance, as depicted when his hand is exposed in the hall as a trophy, after he was injured during his battle with Beowulf. During this scene, the beastly appearance

This is carried over from Jane Eyre, and described to be the underlying cause of Antoinette’s madness. In Wide Sargasso Sea, it is Daniel Cosway—in his first letter—that informs Rochester that Antoinette’s family suffers from madness. Daniel writes, ‘There is madness in that family. Old Cosway die raving like his father before him’ and further writes about Mrs Cosway’s descent into madness, and that Antoinette is showing the same symptoms (Part Two, 58-59). Depending on the perspective, this could be seen as something Rochester echoes in Jane Eyre, ‘Bertha Mason is mad; and she came of a mad family;—idiots and maniacs of three generations!’ (249).
Moreover, how two different paths in entirely different contexts may, upon closer reading, seem as one path treated differently, becoming what it is because of the actions someone took. This essay brings forward the idea that Marvell’s path or lines as they are described in The Definition of Love “… so truly parallel, / Though infinite, can never meet.” and Spenser’s “… paths and alleies wide, / With footing worne, and leading inward farre:” in Faerie Queen, are two paths one can choose at a crossroads, depending on factors of Love and Fate - one leading to the absolute truth and the other to captivating crudeness. In The Definition of Love, Marvell presents two sides of this discourse in four short verses “As lines, so loves oblique may well / Themselves in every angle greet; / But ours so truly parallel, / Though infinite, can never meet.” The path of Marvell’s literary character, straight and infinite, as read in the quote, is parallel to
“The Witch” is what mostly stands out as evil spirits in this verse, as well as the actions taken against her. The effect of specific detail also takes place with, “he wrenched himself” and “so swiftly”. Such exemplification further shows Gogol’s imagination, so revealing yet, includes the sense of the time frame of this novel. Another example, What is there to be afraid of?” he thought to himself. “She will not rise from her bier, since she fears God’s word.
This essay will discuss the ways in which Angela Carter employs fashion as a thematic device that deconstructs rigid perceptions of gender roles in the short stories ‘The Bloody Chamber’ and ‘The Tiger’s Bride’ with regard to Entwistle’s statement. Halpin writes, “The women of The Bloody Chamber are not simple or idealized feminist restorations. Instead, each is crafted from a dark and intricate human framework (the same from which Carter creates her male characters) that allows them to transcend conventional gender roles. Across the collection, both female and male characters have been depicted as cruel or kind, passive or possessive, victimized or villainous.” (2015:1). Before embarking on an analysis it should be noted that there is a difference between the concepts of sex and gender.
She risked becoming a monster in their eyes. Monster Culture (Seven Theses) is a theoretical work written by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen that explores this idea of monstrosity. A “monster” is an ever-present being that stands for nonconformity and elimination of social constructs. People who hold narrow viewpoints and prejudices deem a “monster” monstrous. Binti and Binti: Home highlights the reality of racism, the fear of the “other,” and the merging of

This theme—the ugliness of society and its excessive desire for beauty—is heavily illustrated in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Rappaccini’s Daughter. Frankenstein and Rappaccini’s Daughter show how much humanity despises ugliness and how much humanity praises beauty. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, society looks down upon Frankenstein’s creature solely because of its appearance. People who have never encountered the creature before are terrified of its appearance, and, therefore, terrified of it. The creature recounts its first
