Victor took no responsibility for the unnatural being he pushed forth upon the world. The creation was alone and depressed describing himself as a, ““poor, helpless, miserable wretch; I knew, and could distinguish, nothing; but feeling pain invade me on all sides, I sat down and wept,” (Shelley 106). The Creature was born without anything, forced to learn on his own it would be impossible for him to separate right from wrong. All he knew was that even his creator, the one who love him unconditionally, did
This theme is subtly shown throughout the story, but becomes more apparent after the main event, the slaughter. After Date Bed is presumed missing, Mud, despite the fact that she is not of She-S blood, shows concern for her friend and adopted family member throughout the story – “It is just as well that Mud’s thoughts can’t be heard because what she is thinking is, “I’m the one who loves her. None of you loves her as I do,” and the uselessness of her love arouses her to such a pitch of anguish that she thinks of returning to the plain and searching for Date Bed on her own” (Gowdy, 105). The other She-S’s feel the same way as well – She-Snorts states, “I would not go to The Safe Place…knowing that Date Bed might still be alive and lost” (Gowdy, 249). If the She-S’s didn’t care for their family as much, they would have abandoned all thought of Date Bed and wouldn’t bother searching for her.

Lady Capulet is obedient to Juliet’s father and urges obedience from Juliet. Lord and Lady Capulet, although not directly killing Romeo and Juliet, prompted it from the
Mary Shelley adds a very interesting perspective to this book by having Victor portrayed as the mother/parent to the monster and having the gender role of the parent to be enforced. Shelley doesn’t portray Victor as a good parent which makes sense during her time because he lacks many of the qualities that are essential to being a good parent such as “being a woman”. This lack of parenting drives the monster away from Victor and he learns morals from another source, Victor is in turn portrayed as a very irresponsible mother. Mother is a term that should be used to describe Victor, should. However, this term is not used as all because Shelley uses Victor’s lacking maternal qualities to exemplify the feminist point of view of the novel.
His new wife is dead with the king, and his children are dead as well, and Medea will not let him get near them, due to her maternal side. She turned his life into dust for the sake of her love and her children. If you read the play carefully, you can see that she truly loved her children, but it wasn’t enough to let Jason have them. One thing to not is that Medea in Euripides play had no magical powers until she was rescued by the god Helios, which is deemed that she turn into some sort of superhuman but she is just a betrayed woman with two good skills, cunning and poison (Knox 285). Medea is a powerful female character but not necessarily a super being.

The talk the grandmother and The Misfit have between them is mainly about religion, and what was done in the past, the talk leads to the grandmother having sympathy for him. The grandmothers moment of grace causes a terrible reaction from The Misfit. After The Misfit kills the grandmother he says “It’s no real pleasure in life,” which I think shows that the grandmother may have had some kind of impact on him in there discussion. In the final moments of life, redemption could always be reached.

“ you listen to me,” he said his voice dead calm. “The truth is your sorry mother ran off and left you. The day she died she’d come back to get her things thats all. (Kidd p.39)” This quotation shows that T. Ray has no intentions of sugar coating things and maybe deep down he wants her to feel pain of knowing that her mother left him and her, and showed no
