“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
The lord was so boastful and self centered that he couldn't stand ugly things, even if they were pretty before, so he demoted people and hide possessions that were no longer magnificent.

(10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over

The creature was abandoned ever since he was brought to life, and was forced to fend for himself. Not being able to fit in with human society is what provoked him to ask Frankenstein to create a companion for him. Although it took awhile to convince Frankenstein, he reluctantly agreed and began to create a new creature.

Jack still has his initial innocence but later Golding shows how Jack will break his morals. Later Jack finally kills the pig and to support the fact that Jack did not have the heart to kill the pig.

However, upon realizing had created an abomination as he finished, he flees, “…now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” (Shelley 35). After a long and grueling process, Frankenstein regarded the creature as horrid, malicious, heartless, inhuman, and uncouth – simply, a monster. He wanted to create life so bad that it became an obsession for him as he would go to any extreme to reach his goal. Furthering such a point could be the poignant example of the fallen angel, who had decided that he wanted to be more than a ‘special angel’ – he wanted to be God. As a result, Victor had succeeded in creating a baby in a man’s body, while leaving it to fend for itself without recognizing

The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them. Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will
This purpose has dragged Grendel down an abyss of violence and brutality where the only spark of life was given by the act of eating the victims of a massacre until the threshold of tolerance was so high that Grendel found himself even more alone. This feeling of loneliness is broken by Beowulf’s arrival and eventually by Grendel’s death that ease the pain of trying to understand the functioning of the world and the universe, something that is designed by nature to overwhelm us when we try to analyse it and leave us amazed or depressed. As the philosopher Alan Watts says “black implies white, self implies other, life implies death — or shall I say, death implies life — you can conceive yourself”, Grendel has conceived himself through the consequences of its actions and not by the action

The Chief expresses this sad progression through his installments of the Laughing Man’s fictional story. Much like the Laughing Man, the Chief morphs from a childish happiness, to an adult realism. Throughout this story there are many reminders of these two characters’ dynamic progressions. The poppy-petal mask showcases their transition from child-like to adult-like throughout the story. This story focuses on the fact that the characters are faced with the unfortunate force of making this devastating switch of personalities, and it is all captured by a simple head ornament.
Frankenstein 's monster, from the story Frankenstein, is an example of a byronic hero. A byronic hero is usually a loner who might be rejected by society, have a troubled past, self-destructive, and usually misunderstood. Frankenstein 's monster is an excellent example of this, as he starts the story being brought to life through impossible ways (Shelley 42). Almost immediately, his creator despises him and eventually abandons him, giving him the rejected aspect of a byronic hero. As the monster progresses in the story, he eventually begins trying to befriend multiple people, just by knocking on their cabins only to be attacked by them and chased away (Shelley 78).
