In the plot of the novel, I would like to mention the fact that Victor Frankenstein had no respect to dead people and to death itself. He did not fear God and was obsessed with an idea of bringing back to life a dead person. Eventually, he created a monster with the help of alchemy books, which are not actual scientific books. Victor made a creature out of body parts of people, who were recently buried. When the creature came to life, he was extremely terrified by its appearance and abandoned it.
Allusion- One idea we discussed in the Socratic Seminar was the reason why Kurt Vonnegut chose to have Embassador Milton speak the truth. Back in the United States, Milton had spoken the truth and was therefore turned against because it was not what the government wanted to hear. So, when he had the opportunity to deliver the truth again in San Lorenzo, he seized it. These events in the novel are synonymous with events taking place in the U.S. during this time. Moreover, if you decided to speak out against the majority, you would have also been shunned.
To begin, a commonly accepted creation story relate to those expressed in the Book of Genesis. These beginning chapters capture the work of God as he begins to bring about the universe first, then plants, animals, and eventually humans. Genesis discusses the creation and eventual fall of Adam and Eve, who used their free will given to them by God, to make a decision that displeased him. But, it must be acknowledged that in Mirandola 's effort to create the idea that humans were created for their own purpose, one must explore how he elevated humans ' thoughts about themselves. Through his humanist ideas he promoted the ideas of dignity and individual self-worth.
Hyde, having an aggressive instinct, no moral or social standards, takes pleasure in violence ultimately leading to his own destruction (Singh). Jekyll wanted to release his inner self, but in doing so, he released a madman that murdered Sir Danver Carew. Hyde also indirectly caused another death in the novel; when Dr. Lanyon seen the transfiguration in the park and Hyde insisted that he go retrieve the ingredients for the potion to turn him back to Jekyll, he was traumatized by the whole incident. Not only did the appearance of Hyde begin to consume Jekyll, but also Jekyll began to grow weak and sick while Hyde grew stronger (Moss). Jekyll knew that Hyde was bad, but in the end, the power of Hyde and the overwhelming guilt from Hyde’s choices was too
Throughout the story the monster committed crimes in which he causes pain to his creator, Frankenstein. The crimes the monster creates are intentional. The cause of the creatures intentional crimes is the fact that Victor does not finish his second monster. “I am alone and miserable: man will not associate with me; but one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects.
On the same note, Macbeth also made the biggest mistake by committing the most horrid crime of all; he had Macduff’s family slaughtered. This crime was so horrendous because unlike Macbeth’s prior murders, this one had no other purpose but to quench Macbeth’s hatred of his rival Macduff. His hunger for power allows his mental deterioration to become visible and he begins to believe that the only way to maintain his reign is through the execution of innocent lives. “And take a bond of fate: thou shalt not live” (Act IV, Scene I, 65). The “worthy” Macbeth has abandoned his moral sense and what is worse is that others have suffered because of his inner conflicts.
Insanity is a disease capable of making a person lose control of themselves. On the other hand, sanity is when a person is what others call “normal”. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe the narrator kills a man and he is confessing to the cops about it. He confesses how long the murder took and what he did each night and how he executed the murder. However, the narrator is not guilty because of the reason of insanity.
Macbeth’s greed, hunger for power, and deception lead us to the conclusion that Macbeth is solely guilty of this crime. We see that these characteristics all lead to the tragedy of King Duncan’s death. King Duncan entered Macbeth’s home with no clue that this would be the place of his death. Macbeth committed this crime with a conscious mind. It is necessary to point out that he did not kill just anyone, but he killed the king.
She attempted to control the dauntless to overthrow Abnegation from the government. The want for power made her ruthless and cruel. Lust for power can lead to downfall and it brings out worst in people like it did for the dauntless initiates who were driven by their want to gain high position in the rankings. The struggle to gain higher position in ranking or power caused tender person like Al to become violent and then caused him to commit suicide. Power and greed for reaching at the top of the ranking board drove peter to abuse Tris and stab Edward in the eye.
He would manipulate the citizens in order to acquire more power and he would destroy their fields and cities when he could not get his way, all the while being safely protected by guards. Whether the legend is true or not, it explains a frustration that the people had with the Tarquins who had become horribly corrupt. The act of rape for the attacker is all about power and conquest. The assailant seeks to feel superior, and that is only heightened with rejection. The kings of the fifth century, when the legend takes place, were horrible corrupt and abused their power to gain new lands.
God gave you agency or the power to make choices. He let you choose whether to follow His plan. Mormons believe that Satan was one of God’s spirit children who rebelled against God and did not accept His plan. Satan and his followers were not allowed to be born on Earth and tempt God’s children to do things that bring unhappiness and do not please God. They accept that because of our choice to have faith in Jesus and follow God’s plan we were born on earth and by making these same choices we can find peace and be able to return to live with God after life is over.
Hyde was like a mask for Jekyll a different personality that wanted different things. Jekyll wanted to create an alter ego so he was able to things without feeling guilty or fear. If Jekyll didn’t create Hyde he would’ve lost his good status in the town and become a criminal. I strongly believe that when he was found dead in his house he committed suicide because he just couldn’t take it anymore. Having Hyde as a second personality he changed from a good kind doctor to an evil monster with o soul.
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
Therefore, her conclusion is that classical appeals to free will to solve the problem of evil are not effective without further supplementation. Due to the fact that human agents even if they are free are not tough enough to stand in between God and the consequences of God’s creative choice. According to the word of God and to my knowledge when God created Adam and Eve he made them in His image and likeness. Adam and Eve possessed a natural likeness with God. They were created as personal beings with spirit, mind, emotions, and awareness of oneself and the ability to choice.
