Even if that means he has to ask a stranger or a friend to finish the job for him. In the quote he claims not to be selfish, even though all he cares about is killing his creation to make himself feel better. Since these are Frankenstein 's last wishes, it foreshadows his death and makes it so he won 't be the one to kill the creature. This quote also tells us that even in his delirious state Victor is still enraged with the creature, which means that he will not die in peace, but disturbed and unfulfilled.

The novel Frankenstein outlines the loss of innocence best through two characters, Frankenstein and his monster. Innocent characters would have lived and the monster would have never wanted revenge if Frankenstein had not rejected him. When Frankenstein lost his innocence, the family and friends in his hometown became endangered. Frankenstein losing his innocence also resulted in the creation of a monster, whom took his anger out on the people Frankenstein loved. The downfall of Victor Frankenstein resulted in the destruction of his own creation and the deaths of innocent people he held close to his heart.
It is clear that Dr. Frankenstein is in a regretful mindset when he states, “I suffered living torture.” Meaning that he knew it was never Justine who killed William. However, he would never be able to speak up because he is fearful that he will be perceived as mad by his family and by the public. This was just one of the consequences that Frankenstein has to face due to his creation. Frankenstein also recognizes the fact that it is ultimately his own fault that William has died and that Justine will be wrongly sentenced for his death. Thus the reason he states that the trial is a “wretched mockery of justice.” The death of both William and Justine then lie on Victor Frankenstein’s shoulders.
Since his creation has no parental figure to support and teach him, he develops behavioral problems and is very confused. He grows angry at Victor for creating him, leaving him, and refusing to make him a female companion. Victor’s creation murders his friend Henry Clerval, his brother William, and even his wife Elizabeth. Once Victor’s creation comes to life, his life is ruined. If he would have accepted him from the beginning and taken on the rule of a father, his life may not have been so miserable.
But there is a conflict and this is that there is no one of his kind in the world; and because of this he becomes very sad. The creature confronts Victor and asks him to make another creature similar to him but female, and Victor begins to make another creature but stops in the middle of his project. The creature finds this out and begins to terrorize Victor, the creature gets Victor's attention by killing a child and then killing Victor's best friend. When the creature killed Victor's best friend Victor had known what had to be done. The last thing that made the creature have full control over Victor was that he killed his newly wed wife.
In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the narrator is static and stays selfish throughout the entire story. In the beginning of the story, the narrator finds out his brother isn’t “normal” so he threatens and brainstorms ways to kill him; “It was bad enough having an invalid brother… so I began to make plans to kill him.” The narrator was so self centered and couldn’t handle not getting the “normal” brother he wanted, he was going to end his life. In the middle of the story, the narrator says, “ I was so embarrassed at having a brother who couldn’t walk so I set out to teach him.” He only wanted to teach him to walk for himself, he didn’t even care how hard it would be for his brother or if he wanted to walk.

George Milton decides to end Lennie’s life in order to save him from much pain and suffering in the future. This is an example of an immoral “mercy killing”. George should not have been the judge for Lennie’s life; thus it was wrong for George to determine whether Lennie should have lived or not. No one can make the ultimate decision whether someone should live or die. In a bedroom one night, Gigi Jordan and her severely autistic son, Jude Jordan were conversing as Jude exclaimed, “Dad bad!
On the bottom of page 262 between lines 212 and 214, Creon says, “For anyone who acts against the state, its enemy, I’d never make my friend.” Because of Creon’s ignorance he was judging Polyneices based on the fact he went to war against him and not on who he is. It developes Creon as a tragic hero because his son dies because he would not let him marry the woman who tried to bury her brother that waged war against him. Another example for ignorance is on between lines 1406 and 1407 when creon says to himself, “mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” Ultimately, Creons ignorance ended up being the reason for his sons death. Creons ignorance brought pain upon him when he wasn’t planning on it and it helped him realize how ignorant he was. Ignorance isn’t something you’d want to be, being ignorant can sometimes be confused with being
