This takes place even before Gregor becomes a cockroach, he is taken advantage of and works tirelessly. Gregor’s work situation is described in the following quote: “ He was a tool of the boss, without brains or backbone.” The quotes emphasized the dehumanization that his work place makes him feel; he is not seen as alive, but rather as a tool. The way that Gregor’s workplace dehumanizes him is even more extreme after he has transformed into a cockroach. Gregor’s work isolates him from himself because he is a slave of his job. He is not allowed to pursue his interests, have free time, or take action in his own life.
As he draws the similarities between himself and Safie’s father, he points out the “barbarous sentence” the merchant has to face. Similarly, the monster faces a sentence after being created: the rejection from his creator and human society without evaluation of his personality. The creature experiences a sense of compassion as he draws his attention towards the cottagers and becomes aware of their transition to becoming outcasts. In this chapter, it exposes the physical conditions that came with the misfortune of the DeLaceys family. “Such were the events that preyed on the heart of Felix and rendered him, when I first saw him, the most miserable of his family.
Whenever the demon feels despair he remembered his deviser " an in the bitterness of my heart, I curse[s] him"(177). He senses that there is nobody who care about him and his inventor will never welcome him. Because of loneliness he begins to resentful toward Frankenstein. At the end when then Frankenstein died, monster cried with sincerely and wholehearted. He says, " I shall die, and what I now feel be no longer felt"(Shelley 197).
Troy states that his father was greedy and would put his own personal needs above the needs of the family. This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil. The way Troy 's father treated him would cause Troy to run away at a young age and would be forced to steal and rob.
To the devil with it all!” (Kafka 14). Although he had just awoken to find himself transformed into a gigantic bug, Gregor worried more about how much he despised his work. The pressure that the family placed on Gregor led him to be less concerned with his own well-being; furthermore, his inability to get to work makes Gregor feel guilty. Gregor is enslaved to his job and his family; when his mother said, "'Believe me, sir, there's something the matter with him. Otherwise how would Gregor have missed a train?
In The Metamorphosis by Frank Kafka cruelty is what stemmed Gregor’s change into a large bug and subconsciously motivated him to end his life. Gregor’s new form was a depiction of how he already felt in his household, trapped, voiceless, and small. As Gregor’s metamorphosis developed so did the characters cruelty which affected both the perpetrators and the victims. The Samasa family’s cruelty was demonstrated both physically and mentally by Gregor’s father driving him back into his room, throwing apples at him and by Grete’s use of the word “it”. The cruelty of the Samsa family to Gregor started even before his metamorphosis.
- Great God!” (35) But Frankenstein’s attitude towards his creature changed, when it was finally alive. It was the moment he has been waiting for years and now he was appalled. “I felt bitterness of disappointment: dreams that had been my food and pleasant rest for so long a space, were now become a hell to me; and the change was so rapid, the overthrow so complete!” (36/37) And so he leaves his being alone – leaves his kid alone because of his “inability to tolerate extreme ugliness” (Bann
As a child, Nwoye is the frequent object of his father's criticism and remains emotionally unfulfilled. Okonkwo, “wanted Nwoye to grow into a tough man capable of ruling his father’s household when he was dead and gone to join the ancestors”(38). When Nwoye finds out that it is Okonkwo who killed a “brother” who he is extremely fond of, and grows very close with, he loses all appreciation for Okonkwo and decides to go against his father and his cultures.
42 Heathcliff’s revenge transformed into obsession; it is even transcended to the next generation. When Hindley dies, Heathcliff treats his son Hareton very badly and prevents him from continuing his education and uses all means to belittle and degrade him.

(Acehebe, 1958) Though Okonkwo proves an ambitious hero, he is affected by his internal fear that has ruled his entire life. Infact, He deeply fears nothing but himself just because he don’t want to have the feminine and weak qualities like his father Onoka. He is compelled to kill of his step son (Ikemefuna), just
Almost more impatient however is my son, Telemachus. He misses his father dearly and is furious at the suitors for disrespecting me as well as Odysseus 's honor in his own home. He said that "the men are eating through all they have, courting his mother, and using his house as if it were theirs to wreck and plunder" (Homer 723). He has left on a mission to find his lost father. I was angry that he went behind my back but even more so, I worry for his safety.
Perry Smith grew up in a malformed family in which his mother had “‘soured her soul’, honed her tongue to the wickedest point” and his father cruelty left them and later took out of his anger on Perry. I have heard of tons of sweet little stories to praise the selflessness of the love from parents. Nevertheless, for Perry, his father threatens him by saying that “Perry, I’m the last thing living you’re ever gonna see’, which was just caused by a biscuit. As what Perry said about his father that he was “like a child”, Perry’s father had never truly realized his responsibility for the whole family and his life. When Perry described his helplessness after walk: “the lodge was dark, and all the doors were locked.
The monster declares that he desires “creatures…cheering my gloom”; however, no “Eve soothed my sorrows” (118, Shelley). Because of this abandonment, the monster “cursed [Frankenstein]” (118, Shelley). No mother or Eve is present to nurture the monster. Therefore, he faults his creator for his isolation and plans to seek vengeance against Frankenstein, sending a message to the reader concerning the violent repercussions from an absence of nurture. Similarly, after the De Laceys beat the monster, he feels there are “none…men that existed who would pity or assist” him, causing him to “declare everlasting war against the species” (122, Shelley).
After learning he accidentally drives the Delacey’s apart from him, causing great depression and anger (Frasait). The monster is said to be a replica of Frankenstein. The monster has no control over his aggression and continues to murder his master’s loved ones. Although, this aggression is spurred on from the rejection and sorrow that humanity has placed on him (Cantor 117). The creature’s ultimate sorrow is caused by the denial of a companion
