“I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed. Everywhere I see bliss, from which I alone am irrevocably excluded.” (Shelley). This is the words that the Monster speaks to Victor Frankenstein upon their encounter with each other in the cave in which the Monster has been confined to atop the summit of Montanvert. It is apparent that the Monster finds no pleasure in his exclusion from the world, and because of it, has been forced to live alone while everyone around him lives together in happiness. For a moment, the Monster’s solitude allows him to evaluate his life,
The Germans found him to be one of the most screamingly funny things they had seen in all of World War II. They laughed and laughed.” (Vonnegut, 90) Kurt includes this dark humor to contradict the importance of war and emphasize the absurdness of how war really is. How Billy Pilgrim is completely unbothered by the clothes he is given to wear and clueless as to why the German soldiers are laughing mocks the seriousness of war itself. War is seen as a prideful journey that soldiers endure and Vonnegut creates these implications to add an embarrassing humor. This shows Vonnegut’s intentions of showing how war is not all that it seems and how it breaks down a person’s self-esteem and
In the Big Bang Theory, Sheldon Cooper plays a highly intellectual physicist who lack communication competence. According to McCornack and Ortiz communication competence means consistently communicating in ways that are appropriate, effective, and ethical. (page 19) Sheldon does not comprehend the appropriate communication norm for he usually says the thing he should not be saying. Also, he frequently intentionally and unintentionally hurt people feeling and says unkind words to them when he communicates with them.

But in the end he just steal their clothes. Mr. Cuss was very angry because of this incident and like this these incidents creates rumors and musters in society.

Billy, in his typical disoriented mode of detachment, doesn’t answer the doctor, but instead pulls from the seam of the tiny overcoat a large diamond and a partial denture he had found lodged there to show the German. Furthermore Billy is not portrayed as a courageous and brave hero of the war but on the contrary he becomes a synonym of weakness, laughter and an incapable soldier not even in control of his own fate however beside all this negative attributes Billy manages to survive where a lot of his war companions don’t, he manages to make it through one of the worst atrocities of the war, the Dresden firebombing, Billy even manages to survive a plane crash on top of Sugarbush Mountain, in Vermont after the war where lot of people died
Hal is artificial intelligence at its finest because he is unable to make mistakes. Hals job on the space vessel Discovery 1, is to run virtually everything on the ship and assist the human astronaut David and the rest of the discovery’s crew with task. The remarkable thing about Hal is that he denies he is capable of error but develops emotions that drive him to kill off most of the crew. In this moment Hal delivers a very arrogant quote by saying with a soothing tone, “I don 't want to insist on it, Dave, but I am incapable of making an error” (2001, A Space Odyssey). The end of Hal is by the hands of the hero astronaut David, and Hal admits to his recent errors and ends up begging for his life.
Another mental health affect that can be seen is Macbeth’s transitions from a yang, patriotic soldier at the start to an yin, emotionless king who cannot feel pain or remorse for his actions “I have almost forgot the taste of fears” (V, v, 9) demonstrates the effects of yin and shadow on him, however, now that he is at such an extreme, a bit of persona/yang is bleeding through, since this kind of behavior is stereotypical of a man. After the coup d’etat, Lady Macbeth is also feeling the effects of the universe on her, being a direct force in the overthrow of persona. Lady Macbeth is likely taking blows directly from the universe, god, and the previous traces left over by persona as the message from god might be “mess with the chain of order, Macbeth, and we’ll also destabilize your wife” eventually she starts sleepwalking, and talking in her sleep and having hallucinations, like this “Out, damned spot! out, I say!--One: two: why,” (V, i,
His mind slowly deteriorating while in Ingolstadt, relentlessly continued his ambition. Victor, while experimenting on life and death slowly lost his mind. Victor when creating the monster described his feelings saying, “Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a toent of light into our dark world” (Shelley 51). Victor unaware of his actions crossed moral taboos placed at society during the time, such as the act of god. Victor nearing the end of his ambition was blinded by the creation of immortality.
After all the morale improvements that Huck has made in the end Jim is still being toyed with instead of treated like the free human being he was. That was only the way Huck and partially Tom treated Jim but Twain was far worse. Twain mentioned the N-Word in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn over 200 times usually as a negative way to describe Jim. Not only that but Twain wrote the book as if he was a mere child. The book was “‘more suited to the slums than to intelligent, respectable people.
In reality, the magic word wasn’t magic at all. After finding this out, Gawaine took a major morale blow, leading to his tragic death by his fifty-first dragon. Gawaine was hard to relate to because of his laziness and stupidity, however, one way I could relate to him is how forgetful he was. I am unlike Gawaine because he is dumb. Multiple times throughout the story Gawaine gives us a glimpse into just how stupid he truly is.
"(William Pg 102) This is ironic because in the novel, there is a grownup but unfortunately it is a dead parachutist polit from the war. The grownup does not help make things better yet he makes it worse. The grownup causes fear into the lives of the boys. Simon’s death was taken due to the factor of the boys thought Simon was the beast in the
The War of the Worlds “Perhaps I am a man of exceptional moods. I do not know how far my experience is common. At times I suffer from the strangest sense of detachment from myself and the world about me; I seem to watch it all from the outside, from somewhere inconceivably remote, out of time, out of space, out of the stress and tragedy of it all.” The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells accounts the story of a Martian Invasion told through the eyes of the memorable narrator. The narrator survives a harsh Martian fire attack with his quick thinking and selfishness.
