“The source of the conflict between Victor and the monster starts when the monster knows that he has been the victim of foul injustice at the hands of humans and he wants Victor to correct these wrongs, and do in this way, justice” (Skuola.net). The unjust way to get back at Victor results in loss and brutal suffering from the hands of the creature. Shortly after Victor created the creature he abandoned the monster he made and ran away, hoping to never see the horrid thing again. The creature acts out and needs revenge against Victor because of the way his creator left him after just bringing him into the world. The way of revenge isn’t directly to Victor but to those who are meaningful to him.
Whether it be the most well known comedians that give you a laugh to some small joke told to you by a friend, everyone has something they find funny. Humor and love are arguably some of the strongest emotions that can be displayed. William Shakespeare historically used these two emotions to connect to his readers while writing tragedies and comedies. Two of William Shakespeare’s classic plays, Romeo and Juliet, and Much Ado About Nothing have many similarities, but also have many differences. The character Mercutio from Romeo and Juliet and the character Benedick from Much Ado About Nothing are very similar, yet very different.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
Jurgis did things he knew that were wrong to survive, while James would rather starve then eat a ham stolen by his son. Although Jurgis and James went through similar experiences, their lives were completely different. I feel that the quote “I have to believe that when things are bad I can change them” by James Braddock cooperates well with each of these characters because of the way they never completely gave up. To wrap it all up, Jurgis and James have changing physical appearances, strong family dynamics, and values, which they have learned from
Also, due to past disastrous event, specifically when Oedipus killed his father and married his mother, it had angered the gods and cursed the Oedipus’ family. This is evident in the following quote: “Where once the anger of heaven has struck, that house is shaken” (Sophocles, pg.215). It can also reference the gods have the ability to cause great trouble to a person or family. Furthermore, this stanza, once again, implies that the gods will take revenge and bring hardship to the Oedipus’ family members. Especially may be referring to the fate of the Oedipus’ children, foreshadowing a curse that will continue to haunt Antigone.
The themes of loyalty and love are also developed by conflicts that occur between the two characters. “Go bring her out— that hateful creature, so she can die right here, with him present, before her bridegroom’s eyes.” (Lines 868-870) Ultimately Creon is willing to see his son suffer by suggesting he kill Haemon’s fiancée (Antigone) in front of him. “No. Don’t ever hope for that. She’ll not die with me just standing there.
Since Hector killed Achilles best friend Achilles doesn't care about pride anymore, just revenge. “Wolves and lambs don’t share a common heart—they always sense a mutual hatred for each other” (Homer, Iliad 22. 327-329), this epic simile shows, Achilles’ actions brought on by justice for Patroclus’ death scream for blood. Achilles’ actions after killing Hector hurt Priam and his family, leaving them emotionally distraught and furious furthering the raging battle into Troy for fair Helen. Mortals have been shown to fight a war of vengeance and justice but the Gods also had a part in this

It was almost a way of trapping the reading to continue reading. Alexie’s humor to get his readers and maybe some of his critics to better value and understand other groups beside their own. Laughing together about something in common makes the reader see that they are not all that different from any other human. “When we laugh, we join together in a largely affirmative, entirely human response to an often unfair world…. Laughter is the great unifier and it has the ability to lift us beyond many racial tensions and cultural conflicts (Coulombe).
