Every day, millions of people judge others based on the stereotypes that apply to them, and some do not even know it. Most times these misjudgments are harmless, however, they can definitely be destructive. False judgments based on the stereotypes one follows can make a total stranger seem like a menace to society. This issue is so popular, that it used every day to falsely misjudge others in harmful ways. The most important lesson gained from reading Night, Of Mice and Men, and watching Angel of Bergen-Belsen is that one cannot use stereotypes to judge others because the person could be the total opposite of the judgments and misjudging they can inflict harm to that person if used in the wrong way.
Mary shelly demonstrates that human injustice is caused by fear of what is different, through the novel Frankenstein. This injustice takes the form of unfair treatment. Frankenstein demonstrates how unfair treatment of others is caused by fear of their differences. This is shown by Frankenstein’s abandonment of his creation. Frankenstein abandons his creation because of his fear of its inhumane appearance. This is unfair to the creature because he had nothing to do with how he looked. The abandonment of the creature led to the monster to cause horrible tragedies throughout the story.
Frankenstein contains many themes and lessons that need to be learned. “Don’t judge a book by its cover” shows up the most throughout the story. When everyone sees someone as just a face rather than their character and personality, the situation can become complicated. In Frankenstein, an “innocent man” created a monster, a “monster” had the most compassionate attitude towards those who shunned him, and a “murderer” never committed the crime. Everyone in the world has judged someone based on their looks. If we all took the time to learn about each other, the world would be a better
In the fiction novel Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, the Creature that Victor Frankenstein created was originally good at heart. When he was first brought to life he had good intentions and just wanted to be loved. Although, the Creation sought acceptance from humans, he soon realized he looked monstrous and no one would ever care for him. Many humans look at him disapprovingly, and, they judged him without knowing his kind heart. The judgmental humans are what lead to the Creature 's downfall.
In a world filled with judgement and criticism, people struggle with this on the daily. Always having an opinion about every little thing. Whether people choose to share or not that is their own perspective and everyone’s is different. A person can never have judgement for a person, until they can physically feel and see what they go through each and every day. In Harper Lee’s To KIll A Mockingbird she expresses the theme of perspective throughout the whole book, using her characters in the story to express this.
After childhood, people come to realise that the world is a cruel place. People misjudge others; thus, over time, people grow to accept the amount of brutality in the world. Parents often tell their children that first impressions count, mainly because others are quick to judge. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie, first impressions of people are never correct, as we judge people after mere seconds, and we are often incorrect in our assumptions of people.
Responsibility is the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the reader finds many examples of the importance, need, and especially lack of responsibility with characters like Victor and the monster. A reader of Frankenstein sees multifarious examples of Shelley’s theme of the dangers in not taking responsibility even today in the real world.

The novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is a science fiction story about a creature created from non-living matter, by a young scientist, Victor Frankenstein. The conflict between society and Frankenstein’s creature is largely perpetuated by a split between those considered attractive, and those who are not.

Duality is shown in Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, a gothic tale of a scientist whom looks to advance the life-giving qualities of mother nature.

Geoffrey Chaucer, also known as, “The Father of English Literature,” uses satire in his stories to influence his intended audience.

With that being said, using it while writing a story is one of the most effective ways of writing. He uses the characters in his stories to help him achieve his goal while writing. Geoffrey Chaucer uses satire to reveal corruption, critique patriarchy, and appraise class and nobility.
The actions of an individual defines the boundary between sympathy and wickedness. Their behaviors and thoughts change the plot of the story and character identity. Mary Shelley uses moral ambiguity to overlook the unrealistic nature of her story. In Frankenstein, this concept incorporates itself into Mary Shelley’s characters. Ambiguity invokes an attachment between the figures and readers. One such figure is the creature. Victor’s creations is morally ambiguous, visible through his desire for affection, and inherent kindness.
Everyday, people are judged by the way they look or act. They are judged because people are either ignorant or too lazy to find out who a person really is on the inside. Some have tried to help this issue by saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, however the act of stereotyping this theme is evident in today’s society. It was also evident during the Great Depression and in the plot of the novel, “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. In both real life and in the novel, and it is not until someone walks in another's shoes that they know what their life is actually like. There are multiple examples in “To Kill A Mockingbird” and current life that support this theme.
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein follows the story of a scientist and his experiment gone wrong. Victor Frankenstein, the scientist, abandons his creature at the first sight of it coming to life. The monster, left alone and afraid, transforms from a warm, loving character to one that seeks revenge as the toils of nature and reality begin to take control. Their title changes of “master” and “subordinate” are often referenced in Frankenstein, and plays off the feelings of vengeance they have for each other. Shelley has built the novel around this relationship in a way that captures not only the audience’s attention but also the character’s feelings of regret and hatred as the consequences of exceeding these moral boundaries come to haunt them in the decisions they make and influence the people around them. Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein uses the conflict between Victor and the creature, specifically their predatory relationship in their pursuit of revenge, to emphasize how revenge will consistently push or even exceed moral boundaries.
A story that reflects a timeless issue of equality, morals, and lesson on what women really desire. The Wife of Bath by Geoffrey Chaucer is a story in The Canterbury Tales that expresses multiple moral lessons and an exciting dialogue that provides an entertaining story. The two stories that will be examined today are the “Pardoners Tale” and “The Wife of Bath”, after much evaluation I believe that “The Wife of Bath” is the better story. This is the better story because it’s more entertaining and also has more morals with better quality.
