When the creature had first came to life, his creator shrieked in horror from his appearance, which made Frankenstein traumatized and resulted in him seeking vengeance. The
Comparison can be made between Ahab and the monster in Frankenstein on the basis of revenge that the monster wanted to take from Victor. Victor lost all the power over his creation when the monster killed William. Frankenstein immediately felt responsible for the crime because he never made his creation to go around and kill people. After destroying the work of second creature, the monster threaten Victor saying that, “Remember that I have power; you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you. You are my creator, but I am your master;—obey!” (Shelly, 192).
Throughout the story Frankenstein, we can see and interpret many themes. One of these, in particular, is that the desire for revenge leads to destruction. Both of the main characters are dead set on revenge throughout parts of the story, which ultimately leads to their fates. Mary Shelley develops the theme in Frankenstein, the desire for revenge leads to destruction, in a variety of ways. The first of those is when the creature kills William because he heard the name Frankenstein.
Even to this day society is known to shun those who we do not see as equals. It is my belief that society is the true ‘monster’ in the novel, and that it is through our experiences and interactions with society that shapes us into the person that we become. Because of the creatures experiences with abandonment, abuse, rejection, and lack of nurture, the creature turns from an innocent soul into a murderous monster. Society plays a huge role in the destruction of both the creature and Victor. When Victor first leaves for ignostalt he believes that “he will be unfit for the company of man.” He feels this way because he has spent a majority of his life with his family, and his one friend Henry Clerval.
As the creation makes his way out into the world, he receives hatred for his repulsive countenance. As a result, the creation decides to get revenge on Victor by killing all of his loved ones, consequently causing Victor and the creation to devote their lives to obtaining vengeance upon one another. By giving her characters the trait of ambition, Mary Shelley uses her novel, Frankenstein, to express that going beyond the limits of ambition can cause people to negatively change who they are in society. Early in the book, as Victor starts to construct the creation, he becomes passionate in his work,
Frankenstein appears to genuinely care for someone besides himself without weighing where it is beneficial for himself or not, which is the first time that he has done so in the novel. However, like all good things that Frankenstein tries to do, ego ruins it. Frankenstein, in his last words, tries to convince Walton to continue the dangerous quest to the North Pole; "You [are] hereafter to be hailed as the benefactors of your species" 197. Ego takes control of Frankenstein's mind for a final time. Frankenstein reverts back to the way he thought at the beginning of his story when he thought that creating the Monster would make him the creator and master of a new species.
In the book Heresies and How to Avoid Them by Ben Quash and Michael Ward, several chapters are dedicated to the heresies revolving around who and what Jesus is not. Arianism, docetism, nestorianism, and eutychianism are four heresies explore the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ. I will argue these four heresies had an overarching theme of causing the church to struggle with the idea of God’s intimacy and how Jesus delivered us from our sin. I will do this by exploring the unique nature of Jesus Christ. Arianism is named after Arius, a man who believed Jesus was created, instead of eternal like God the Father.
Magic realism is a very broad category and has very few rules that have to be followed in literature. Every magic realism story has a hidden meaning in it. Even though there is magic and mystical events occuring in the stories the writer makes it believable that the events could occur in human society. There are two main types of magic realism. One is where there are small elements of magic placed throughout the story and the characters do not act like they are magical.
Comparing society in Beowulf and society in Frankenstein is like comparing a simple farm to the processing plant; futuristic and totally dissimilar. Although, the core ‘monsters’ are unchanged; grotesque, horrifyingly pagan-esque beings of the dark that strike terror in to the hearts of even the stoutest of fighters and the sanest of men. In the Christian and Medieval world, monsters were human beings with an unnatural birth or a birth deformity (Stitt, 2003). The term ‘monster’ derives from the Latin term ‘monere’ which means ‘To warn’ or ‘to advise’ and ‘monstrum’ which is ‘a sign or portent that disrupts the natural order as evidence of divine displeasure’. The aspect of ‘Divine Displeasure’ is attributed almost perfectly to Grendel, the monster of Beowulf and the terror of Hrothgar.
In my opinion, Victor Frankenstein is the hero of Frankenstein. He is a tragic hero and a scientist who is obsessed with creating life from lifeless things. After Victor created the monster, he ran away. After Victor created monster, he wanted to destroy the monster as it felt it needed revenge against his creator. We will focus on three aspects to explain why Victor Frankenstein is the tragic hero of Frankenstein.
