He anticipated having his freedom from his master James Stephens. Then there is James Douglass; he lived with his mother, father, and two brothers (Duncan and Robert). James despised the farm he also wants his freedom to live his life and experience other things beyond the farm. Now they both had a love for music and performing. Henry Sims could play a mean banjo and dance, and James loved how excited he got when seeing someone performing to music.

carried on the legacy of his father by being a country singer too. But Hank didn’t just carry on the tradition, he expanded upon it, had a better career, and became more famous than his father was.

The themes I discussed link with those most poignant throughout Mary Shelley 's ‘Frankenstein’; and include injustice, morality, fate, and judgment. Themes of injustice are prominent throughout, in more than one way. Legal injustice is explored after Justine is trialed for the murder of Henry, and overall “wretched mockery of justice”, is represented in my story with the ruling on the ethics board, which allowed the main character, who was guilty, to be free. Additionally, social injustice is evident when the monster is beaten by the villagers, which I mirrored in the speech of the ‘creation’ who had only been treated poorly his entire life and only created to “satisfy the selfish needs of man”. The setting of the ethics board encapsulated another common theme of judgment and morality; specifically relating to Frankenstein and his choices on creating the monster, but also in the way that the monster took revenge; leaving the reader to question whether it was right or wrong, much like a decision on an ethics board.
Bonnie and Clyde was a notorious couple that people wanted to imitate. They both had a reason for doing what they did.

They are legendary in the music industry because when couples write songs together they always refer to themselves as the new Bonnie and Clyde.
