This meteor represents the sins that have yet to be revealed by Dimmesdale. The meteor was the last thing that pushed Dimmesdale to confess to the public his darkest secret. By cleary being reminded of his hidden sins, he realizes the effect they have on his beloved Hester and Pearl. This guides Dimmesdale to become a completely different person, acting as if a huge weight has been lifted of his shoulders since he now understands what he must do. Chillingworth is himself a symbol within the story, standing for pure evil.
What would life be without evil in the world? Many optimists believe there is an inherent goodness gifted to all people at birth and fundamentally embedded in us that dictates our actions, but the reality is exactly the contrary. People are evil, not because of a desire or choice but out of absolute necessity on account of none of the things we enjoy today would be available or even invented without some evil. Evil, within limitations and with restrictions, is productive for a group of people. Society, with all its art, culture, music, and glory, was created because there was evil present and now works to destroy its very creator through police departments and social initiatives.
Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply. The creature was known as a monster and was doomed due to his appearance. The crimes were done by the creature due to the revenge he sought out for towards Victor. The creature cannot be to blame for his behavior, Victor Frankenstein is the only one at fault for the murderers and wrong doings of his creature.
They have no mercy for anyone besides themselves. They both have problems and key features that cause readers to question who is more evil. It is evident that Macbeth is the character with the most cause of destruction, causing him to be more evil than his wife. Clearly, Macbeth has more evil choices and actions that lead to his own death. He does not have any remorse for anyone that he killed.
… Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly. The monster was completely misunderstood and at no stage a welcome guest. In spite of his benevolent and kind spirit, he was beaten up and even shot at. No one was willing to attempt to understand him except for Agathe who was blind, but even that was short lived as Felix was quick to attack the creature. Although labelled as a horrifying monster, nothing but his exterior fit this description, until he was discriminated by society.
In conclusion, the theme of the lord of the flies is that all men are evil. William Golding shows this through his use of Jack's insistence on rules, then Jack's descent into madness, then his introduction of the beastie, all to drive home the point that everyone, even children, is evil. Lord of The Flies is a book that can teach the reader about the inherent darkness in everyone, and how important society is in maintaining
Therefore, when we a take a closer look at the Monster, we can easily recognize that he becomes more dangerous after he is abandoned by everyone and is alienated by society. I believe most of us are proud of our succeed in doing what people have not done before even though the results are not good as we expected. However, as the inventor of the Creature, Victor already does an impossible thing. Instead of being satisfied with his creature, he is disappointed because of its ugly appearance. Obviously, Victor’s attitude indirectly affects to the Creature personalities.
I’m part of you” (Golding 147-148) This proves the beast which everyone is afraid of is just a disguise, and the boys should be afraid of each other, as man is inherently evil. The corruption and evil in the boys is shown by the Lord of the Flies. It shows us the boys savagery and their corruption by how brutally they killed the
We must remind ourselves that there are two sides to every story. Is Beowulf the hero or just a celebrated killer? The question to be asked is, “Just because we only see the bad qualities in someone, does that make them a monster? All the townspeople have ever known is Grendel kills everyone and destroys everything. All they see is destruction and evil.
The novel Lord of the Flies, is a great example of how civilization is the only reason we keep ourselves from doing certain things. The novel, “Soon becomes a parable about the inherent evil in human nature, reflected in the natural brutality of these boys once they are away from civilization.” (Junior). People's perspective of others judgement holds them back. Along with people's morals, it makes them really think about their decisions that are selfish instead of not putting in society's perspective and doing it in a blink of an eye.This not only applies to adults but also children, which can be seen in the novel. Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot).
We may all be tempted by the darkness and the shadows, but we are the ones that decide to let it harm us or not. In this book it says, “Evil only has the power that we give it. I give you nothing.” (Page
