In both of these stories, these elements working in tandem to be very effective in creating a sense of horror reader. The tone of these stories are very similar. In both cases, the story is told from the point of view of the killer, allowing us a better understanding of the work of the mind killer, thus enhancing a sense of urgency and horror. Through the use of disturbing images, speech forms storytellers, and especially irony According creates an atmosphere unlike any other author. In both stories, the narrator mad that you can not say that they are not smart, though neither believes he is mad.
She uses imagery to show the kind of reaction that Frankenstein had on his creation’s awakening and the kind of words he used to describe his very own creation. His description of the creature is used to show how judgemental humans are against other people who are not similar to them though they do not even know the other being. Frankenstein’s foreshadowing of the future with his creation in it, also is used as an example as to how humans discriminate others and assume the worst based on appearances. Shelley’s use of both of these strategies gives the readers a first hand look into how judgemental and discriminating humans can be to those that are slightly or majorly different to them, and it allows the readers to see why this way of being and thinking is not acceptable. Her way of writing her story serves as a lesson to those who read it and as an example about what is wrong with the way Frankenstein judged his own creation and why it is not right to discriminate or isolate another individual or group based on their appearance or any
In Frankenstein’s character we come across qualities that resemble Robert Walton. Once Frankenstein begins narrating his story, the reader is already familiarized with the new character. It is an effective way to give a background of the protagonist. At the base of their characters is narcissism. It is the most fate-determining attribute because it directs them through their delusion towards goals of triumph.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, is a novel that exposes many themes and ideas with the assistance of literary and stylistic techniques. Shelley explores certain ideas about good and evil including the idea that happiness is valuable, that through persistent negative inputs someone’s outward character becomes their inside beliefs and that there will be no rest until there remains only one god. These ideas closely interlink with the themes of good and evil which allows for contrast, giving the audience an opportunity to gain their own meaning. Foreshadowing is used to effectively develop the story, while the metaphors are used to give the readers a visual understanding of the storyline. Shelley makes all these components work together to form a
Humans, the greatest source of pain and suffering, afford authors the chance to capture a tormented soul in writing and control a reader’s heart. Delving into the deepest parts of humankind, Mary Shelley’s literary masterpiece, Frankenstein,
For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters. I think it was creative of her to reference a well-known philosopher and that she was able to use it to have the reader thinking about movies they’ve watched and figure out whether they’ve actually seen any movie at all with a feminine monster and if they did, then they’d compare them to the masculine monster causing the reader to think even more!

The theme of the novel, The Book Thief written by Markus Zusak is that there is great power in words and it makes a huge impact on others. As Liesel begins to learn to read, she hungers for words and they are her source of comfort which is why she steals books. Soon she realizes that can be an ugly thing. For example, the way Hitler uses words to encourage the Germans to carry out cruel, violence on innocent people. I chose this theme because I agree on how words can influence people around you.
In every good horror story, there is always some sort of monster that is violent and cruel. However, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is the exception. The monster that Victor Frankenstein creates, gains great sympathy from the audience, while he describes his story. As he narrates his experience, it is revealed that the creature is no fiend, but a friend. Frankenstein’s monster, for a monster acts very human.
My personal favourite is ‘Sestina’, her superb technical ability is shown in this poem. Some poets are more challenging to understand, not Bishop. This is due to her excellent choice of language, which makes her poems so easy to understand. In Sestina she chooses an extremely restrictive format, but for a particular reason, to show how her emotion was
Sometimes the things that people perceive as flaws are still beautiful; and that the unique qualities that each of us possess can teach us something that we never knew before. I absolutely loved this book. The story really sucked me in, and I loved the idea of a small town with such a big secret. Kendall is a strong female character who is driven to the very end. The twist is unexpected and
