Virginia Brackett asserts in her analysis of the novel that “Due to the monster's rejection by the cottagers and other humans, Victor serves not only as his creator but also as the only social construct on which he can build his reality” As the creator of the creature, Victor adopted the responsibility of his creation and the duties that accompany it, however, instead of answering the call of duty he fled and disregarded his obligation to the creature. The creature
Based on the way the author portrays the monster’s behavior, he may not be the real monster in this story. The monsters begins his life being rejected by his maker. His maker is selfish and uses science to get him what he wants without regard for the consequences. The maker wants to prevent people from losing loved ones which is valiant objective. So, he sets out to be able to bring people back to life after death.
Additionally, the marriage between Tom and Daisy has nothing on Gatsby. He believes Daisy never loved Tom and only remains with him because she has no choice. While in the Plaza Hotel, Tom begins to cause tension and Gatsby exclaims, “She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. In her heart she never loved anyone except me!”(130). Gatsby chooses to believe there was no way Daisy could ever feel something for Tom although Daisy claims that’s
“There would be no powerful will bending hers in that blind persistence with which men and women believe they have a right to impose a private will upon a fellow creature.” This line from paragraph 13 comes from the enlightened thoughts of Louise later in the story. This line implies that something is wrong with him and how he handles his commitments. In the same fashion, the character of Brently is somewhat related to the husband of Andrea in the story Janus. “Her husbamd pronounced the bowl ‘pretty’ and he had turned away without picking it up to examine it.” The line from Janus indicates the lack of sympathy of the husband for Andrea which matches the description for Brently. He probably prioritizes his career over his wife.
(Shelley) 14) Since Victor denies the monster social acceptance, the monster is left to self educate himself which leads to isolation issues which cause violence. 15) Victor began to think, “When I reflected on his crimes and malice, my hatred and revenge burst all bounds of moderation. I would have made a pilgrimage to the highest peak of the Andes, could I when there have precipitated him to their base…”(). 16) When the monster began to tell of his tale with the cottagers we can see a new fatherly Victor, however, he never gained insight into the monster 's tortured psyche. 17)Victor wasn’t prepared to be a
Pain, emotions, happiness , feelings of love, hesitation, anxiety, hatred is what makes us humans. It is important to influence and be influenced. It is shown through the novel by many examples that they had no feelings or emotions and thus not humanity, even the expression "love" is an empty ideal. For example, when Jonas asks his parents if they love him, his mother scolds him for using imprecise language. She says that "love" is "a very generalized word, so meaningless that it 's become almost absolute” (lowry
Robert states in one his letters to his beloved sister “But I have one want which I have never yet been able to satisfy, and the absence of the object of which I now feel as a most severe evil, I have no friend, Margaret:when I am glowing with the enthusiasm of success, there will be none to participate my joy; if I am assailed by disappointment, no one will endeavour to sustain me in dejection.” (Shelley letter 2). Robert gives insight on how profuse his desire for a companion is. Robert’s predicament shows how unfulfilling life can be without anyone there to share precious moments with. Robert also states to his sister “I desire the company of a man who could sympathize with me, whose eyes would reply to mine. You may deem me romantic, my dear sister, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend.” (Shelley letter 2).
Do you share my madness?” (Shelley 28). After everything he went through, Victor still thought that the quest for knowledge was worth the death of his entire family because male identity is tied to his romanticized quest, “Do not return to your families with the stigma of disgrace marked on your brows.” (215). We must ask, what shifts Victor’s purpose from a warning to a doubling down on his male hubris? In part, it is a refutation on his own feminine nature. His inability to except feminine qualities within himself causes him to fail at caring for his creation, to separate himself from the domestic life, and to view femininity as a
They had nothing in common, so they had nothing to share in their marriage. However, Hester was always honest to her husband. We can see it in the following passage, “"Thou knowest," said Hester,--for, depressed as she was, she could not endure this last quiet stab at the token of her shame,--"thou knowest that I was frank with thee. I felt no love, nor feigned any. "” (Hawthorne, 72) Her husband also says: I ask not wherefore, nor how, thou hast fallen into the pit, or say rather, thou hast ascended to the pedestal of infamy, on which I found thee.
However, in taking revenge, the creature ensures that he will never be accepted by society. Furthermore, revenge does not only consume the creature, it consumes Victor as well. While the creature is not considered a “monster” at first, the desire for revenge transforms him and Victor into true monsters who have no aspirations beyond destroying each other (“Frankenstein Themes: Revenge”). As stated previously, Victor ultimately finds himself dead because of his unavoidable loathing of the creature. Additionally, at the end of the novel, the creature implies that the flame motivated him to create havoc, but now that Victor is dead, he is slowly dying.

Despite the true reason for Mr. Sands lack of response owing to his inability to hear Linda, Jacobs uses this opportunity to make known the lack of faith Linda has in Mr. Sands emotional attachment to her. For Linda, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that her former lover possessed no fond feelings for her whatsoever because she and Mr. Sands never built their relationship out of love. Jacobs uses this relationship to show that a true loving relationship cannot come from a slaveholding white man and a black slave because distrust and use are the pillars of the relationship rather than
"He 's an incipient monster, thought Pete, and. . . we 've seen in the world how monsters can come to the top and just what horrors they can achieve” (Knowles PAGE).
