For example, sometimes he is unreasonably aggressive, shouting at Sally or trying to punch Stradlatter, at the same time being quiet and unconfident, not contacting with Jane. On the other hand, the fact that he sees everyone as a phony makes him depressed as well, because the way he sees people makes him hate a lot. However, this cannot continue if Holden wants to be a happy person. He needs to appreciate life more, trying to find positive sides in a word he’s currently living in not only when he’s with his family. He has to do that because a person who dislikes everything and cannot be emotionally stable doesn’t fit into our
This is because there is no control or motivation, often offered by adults, in place. The fact that the children come to the point of killing each other shows how much self-control and adult supervision is needed in everyday life. The attempt and failure at government, the fact most of the the children want to have fun instead of concentrating on rescue, and the murders of Simon and Piggy show how “Lord of the Flies” is an example of the struggle to survive without an adult presence. For one, the children’s attempt at government fails without the the help of adults. Wisdom is one of the traits the boys lack that leads to the demise of their system.
Once the creature begins to go out on his own and learn about life and society, during his first interaction with other people he learns that he will be immediately judged based on how he looks. To start, when Frankenstein first sees the creature, he quickly runs away without any interaction and exclaims “no mortal could support the horror of that countenance” (Shelley 36). This interaction made the monster realize that even his creator could not avoid the habits of the society he lived in, and immediately ran away from him in fear because he didn’t believe he was attractive. Then after that, the creature still has enough hope to go into a village and meet other people, but he is immediately met with children that “shrieked” and one woman who “fainted” just at the sight of him (Shelley 74). In every situation where the creature attempts to interact with others, he is shunned immediately, before even being able to say a word.

Frankenstein’s monster is judged based on his appearances and is often ostracized by society, just as anyone in modern day society can be shunned or pushed away due to their looks or how they think.

According to her, both visual and verbal languages have an indelible impact on the mind of the listener. Mellor justifies Shelley’s use of linguistic construes to demonstrate the turning of the Creature into the Monster through her lines, “By consistently seeing the creature's countenance as evil, the characters in the novel force him to become evil” (134). The continued rejections and abhorrence that the Creature receives from each and every person he chances upon to meet, including Victor and the De Lacey’s family, force him to become the Monster, who is beheld in their
This is shown when Victor's monster escapes from the lab and the individuals the monster faces are negatively affected. Any time Frankenstein’s monster came in contact with another individual, people would either be too scared and run away from him or attempt to kill him. For instance, after the monster was brought to life, he describes how disoriented he was; how we had to understand the basic of being human and grasp standard knowledge of how to read and write; this way, he could be socially acceptable. Moreover, in seeking guidance, the monster first visited a random man who later ran away in terror, and after that, he wandered into a village, which also proved that individuals will not accept the monster, primarily because he is far too grotesque; and so he was ostracized by the people. Enraged by the fact, Victor’s creation begins to have little regard for the people around him, especially those who reject him.
When reading through the novel some might question who's the real monster? Throughout Frankenstein Mary Shelley uses the concepts of Science and knowledge, social rejection and true evil.

The fear for his safety not only physically isolated him, but emotionally scarred him. The monster is even “terrified” of his own reflection, suggesting there is no hope of acceptance from humankind since he cannot even accept himself (Shelley 121). The monster later comments that he was “drivest from joy for no misdeed” (Shelley 105). People were too quick to judge the monster’s image instead of
Many high school students are instantaneously judged by their appearances on a daily basis, but is this truly fair? More often than not, students are abhorred by peers and are not given the chance to let their personality shine through. The creature in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley would undoubtedly support this injustice to mankind, as he himself is not a sight for sore eyes. Throughout the novel, the tone of both characters start out light and full of hope, while towards the end it becomes dark and miserable. This reflects upon Victor and his creature, as both of them result in total suffering and complete alienation from the world.

A byronic hero is usually a loner who might be rejected by society, have a troubled past, self-destructive, and usually misunderstood. Frankenstein 's monster is an excellent example of this, as he starts the story being brought to life through impossible ways (Shelley 42). Almost immediately, his creator despises him and eventually abandons him, giving him the rejected aspect of a byronic hero.
