Later that night, once everyone is asleep, Grendel enters Herot Hall to kill some of the men, but is instead mortally wounded by Beowulf. Because of Beowulf’s success and bravery, King Hrothgar, ruler of the land, gives him gifts and a feast in his honor. The second main point in the story Beowulf is the death of Grendel’s mother. When Grendel’s mother hears about the death of her son, she becomes angry and vows to avenge her son: “His mother’s sad heart, And her greed, drove her from her den on the dangerous Pathway of revenge.” (Raffel 1276 – 1278). This quote shows that Grendel’s mother most likely cared enough about Grendel that she wants to get revenge on those who killed her son.
The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster.

Throughout literature, abandonment is a leading cause of conflict and struggle. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is successful in his endeavor to create life, but once he sees the life he has created he runs from it out of fear. This causes the Creature to be left all alone, which makes him grow bitter and want to take revenge on Victor by getting rid of the people in his life.

In the “Fall of the House of Usher,” Roderick Usher prematurely buries his sister, Madeline Usher, because he thinks she has died from an unknown illness. Poe describes the burial as, “We replaced and screwed down the lid, and having secured the door of iron, made out the way with the toll…” (Poe 425). When Roderick bolted the iron lid upon his sister’s coffin, all trust that had previously been built between the two had been broken. In Poe’s life, after the burial of his wife and mother, he felt like he could never trust anyone as well. He believed that all people that entered his life were bound to die, and if he got close to them, they would just leave him.

This is another morally wrong idea in the book because the monster has to live alone with no one he can talk to or relate with. He is forced into isolation by Frankenstein's
