The creature is even more conscious of his superior power over Frankenstein, and calls himself ‘the master’ when Frankenstein breaks his promise, “Slave, I before reasoned with you, but you have proved yourself unworthy of my condescension. Remember that I have power, you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you. You are my creator, but I am your master—obey!” (148). Their mutual chase through the whole novel is also mirrored in the coexistent relationship
believed it to be an intuitive discernment; a quick but never-failing power of judgment." (marry shelly pg. 30). On the other hand, victor character is perceived by the monster through his view of Victor as a cold creator and an unloving abandoner. Comparing Victor to God and himself to Adam, the monster says, "Many times I have considered Satan as the fitter emblem of my condition" (Marry Shelley pg.
The modern times, the plays are written for theatres and not for people. Barker as a theatre director knows the play ‘Hamletmachine’ by Heiner Muller. In 1977, a German Playwright and theatre director, Heiner Muller wrote a play ‘Hamletmachine’ originally titled as ‘Da Hamletmaschine’ where the play is not cbased ‘on conventional plot but partially connects through sequences of monologues, where the protagonist leaves his role and reflects on being actor.’ (Wikipedia) In this loosely arranged scenes of the play Muller seems to show the roles of intellectuals in interpreting the characters, feminism and ecology movement during the East German Communism area. In Muller’s play Hamlet is an intellectual from the East who knows that bomb will not improve the situation of the country and will not bring about more justice. He does not know what to do to change he things.
Jeffery Cohen has a clear opinion of this. “We distrust and loathe the monster at the same time we envy its freedom, and perhaps its sublime despair.” They are both terrifying and the heart of fantasies. This accounts for the monster’s popularity. The seventh thesis “The Monster Stands at the Threshold…of Becoming” brings attention to the fact that we are the creators of monsters. They make us question why we have created them; how we perceive the world, how we have misinterpreted so that we can reevaluate cultural assumptions about the different race, gender, sexuality.
In "The Cask of Amontillado" Edgar Allen Poe illustrates that evil can be revealed through revenge, and it only brings malice and cruelty to this world. Even in today 's age, these two stories still affirm the evil that manifests inside humans. In these two stories, both Young Goodman Brown and Monstresor see the evil in others, which motivates their actions. No matter how we try to be faithful, loyal, or pure, we as humans cannot escape the evil that is concealed in our hearts and minds. The Bible describes Evil as a sin.
Despite the cosmetic differences between the literary and filmic Lecter, the idea of intellectual domination permeates both the book and the film. The essential idea of Silence of the Lambs is the nature of evil, the unmatched cruelty of human nature. Evil, and its derivatives, are found throughout the story, throughout all characters; Chilton abuses his inmates, Crawford selfishly lies to Starling, Buffalo Bill kills, and Hannibal Lecter manipulates. Like Lecter, characters are trapped in constricting cells of malevolence. The book presents Lecter’s predilection with violence as unconscious, inherent to his very nature and, while the Lecter of the film appears to be conscious of his illness and malfeasance, both book and film see Lecter as a sort of morbid opportunist, taking advantage of the innate fears and moral corruptions which plague the human race.
The idea that humans are essentially evil, is something that can be learned from history and a concept that is shown through the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Humans are cruel creatures. One of the reasons that make this statement true is that there are many examples in which humans fall into the temptation and enjoyment of killing other living beings. In the book, the character Roger is presented as the true evil that shifts through Planet Earth. He receives enjoyment from causing harm to other children in the island.
While Prospero's character is a representation of both the controlling paternal figure and the European colonisers of America, Shakespeare also uses him as a way to deliver his own messages. Prospero's end speech is a goodbye from Shakespeare himself, and in his earlier speech in act 4.1. The words "the great globe itself" are a reference to Shakespeare's globe theatre. The final scene is one of Shakespeare's most contemplative and impassioned pieces of writing, and continues to be known as his parting message. Though it was not his final play (he wrote two collaborations after this), the departure of such an influential figure within society was as exciting as it was tragic, and so naturally audiences were fascinated by
They truly think they are superiors that the rest of species when they really have much to learn from them, like the Navis of Pandora, for example. Our destruction of the environment is not only affecting the living beings around us, but we are killing ourselves, humans. As
