The humanization of the Demon done by the author creates an atmosphere in which something so terrible and tyrannical is used as a symbol of isolation, emotion, and rebellion that we as humans experience regularly.

He might be so likeable because he has some great qualities in his personality. The first great part of his personality is his selflessness. As mentioned in the paragraph above, Van Helsing’s motivation to kill Dracula is not for himself but others. He might have a family and a job back home, but he spends countless weeks searching for Dracula for the good of others. Another good example of a trait Van Helsing has is he is very empathetic about others.
In Poe’s The Tell Tale Heart, Poe writes about how his characters are driven to commit murder and how their guilt eats them alive. The dark plots used is his writings exemplify the threshold of the unknown through the way that individuals are viewed as evil.

Even after people learn that it’s wrong they still use it throughout their lives, but why? Evil and fear is created by people who strive for power and the need to feel wanted. In William Golding’s “The Lord of the Flies” the creation of evil and fear is demonstrated through different symbols.
His looks and actions put him on the path of being a monster. I think it can be accredited to these factors that the Monster is the focal point of monstrosity. Yet, I also think that we can call Victor a monster. However, it is not with the same qualifications as his counterpart. I classify Victor as a monster because through his lucid thought process, he abuses his power of knowledge.
