and for them to realize he really isn’t a monster, even though he looks evil, he is actually kind hearted and compassionate. Compassion: The words suggesting love and compassion are an emphasis on the fact that Frankenstein’s monster wasn’t the person that the people he met thought that he was. They based him off his looks instead of what was on the inside. They never sat down and talked to him instead, by his looks they automatically thought he was bad and ran away.
He utilizes his observations of the cottagers to create his own ideals of humanity. He remains true to these words as he is very compassionate about the De Lacey family’s poverty. He learns of the acute shortage of food in the
The creatures first encounter with a human being only proves how humane it is, despite his horrid appearance as the old man is delighted with him "I am blind, and cannot judge of your countenance but there is something in your words which persuades me that you are sincere". However, the younger citizens of the cottage enter and the creature is back to square one as they immediately react defensively against it- conveying how the creature will never be accepted with such distorted appearance since it is immediately identified as inhumane and
Despite our disabilities, our faults and ugliness, our parents still love us. Yet, this is unfortunately not a universal truth, as there are those poor souls who do not experience even this basic of love and nourishment, as depicted by the character of Victor Frankenstein. Frankenstein, the man who created the Creature, feels no love towards him, only hatred and disgust. Upon seeing the creature, his initial reaction is not one of pity, but of disgust. “Devil,” he exclaimed, “…vile insect!…
In many occurrences, Victor Frankenstein’s creature never intends harm and solely seeks companionship and compassion in return. However, he is met with instantaneous disdain due to his physical features. As he appeals to Victor for the creation of a companion to end his misery of solitude, “[Victor] compassionated him, and sometimes felt the wish to console [the creature]; but when [he] looked upon him…[Victor’s] feelings were altered to those of horror and hatred” (121). Victor is unable to completely sympathize with the creature due to his ugly nature. While the creature attempts to plea for compassion and kindness, Victor reverts to his instinct and shuts down the creature’s request.
Regardless of who we strive to be, or who we dare not to be, those who we respect and look up to will be the ones who leave an impression on our lives. To the Monster’s credit, it continued to pursue a life of good deeds until the people it idolized turn on it. Because of the influence made on it by its parental figures the Monster behaves like an outsider, and as an outsider it gains new role models and is governed by new emotions such as anger and hate. The monster should not be blamed for its malicious nature, rather, the people who taught it hate and the Doctor who created it without a true intent of being its
Following this, at the end of the novel, the Creature
“We have the ability to project ourselves into just about anything we control.” [J.Schell, 2008] Galaga is a Japanese shoot ‘em up arcade game that was released in 1981, developed and published by Namco [Japan] and by Midway in North America. The following is my analysis and experience having played/studied the game under the headings: story, technology, aesthetics, and mechanics. Story “We filter reality through our sense, and through our minds, and the consciousness we actually experience is a kind of illusion – not really reality at all.”
"Believe me, Frankenstein, I was benevolent; my soul glowed with love and humanity; but am I not alone, miserably alone?" (M. Shelly 114). Therefore the daemon's nature must be loving and compassionate, but because he experienced a lack of nurturing, that he was expecting to receive from his creator, Frankenstein, this then caused the daemon to be monstrous and seek revenge upon his creator; therefore Frankenstein's pain was a result of his own failures. The character of Frankenstein argues that both nature and nurture influences the behavior of people through his actions against his very own monster and in turn the effect of those actions on himself. Frankenstein left the monster alone, and the monster reacted for seeking that Frankenstein should feel just as much loneliness and woe and he did by killing off his entire family.
His father was abusive and corrupt. Ellis said that he has absolutely no respect for his father because the things he has done in his life and the lack of want to change. He said he would be willing to let his father back into his life if he was willing to change, and he wasn’t. This hurt Ellis even more because he felt like he was a disappointment to his family because at that point, he cut all of his family out of his life. This played a major role in the writing of American Psycho.
The dust and gas supply in starburst galaxies is used up quickly to form a lot of new stars. Once starburst galaxies start, they end not long after. Starburst galaxies can occur anywhere, but mostly happen near the nucleus of the galaxy. Starburst galaxies can sometimes be the brightest things in the universe. This happens when they release ultraviolet rays, which are absorbed by the dust and then re released at infrared wavelengths.
The Nintendo Gaming System also was a popular for teenagers. The removable disk allowed you to play more than one game. Games such as Duck Hunt and Super Mario Bros were only some of the many hits on the console. Most of the ideas of the videos games came from cartoons. Thundercats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles eventually got a spot in the video game industry.
A good monster is never human or inhuman. Monsters serve as cautionary tales about the consequences of reckless abandon, and far more often than appearing as metaphysical beings, their true form is an idea. When children check under their beds and inside of their closets for a pair of yellow eyes and a toothy grin, they do not dispel any physical entity. Instead, they dispel the unknown. Similarly, in Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein grapples not with a physical entity, but his own personality flaws.
Many times throughout western literature, monsters are portrayed as a threat to the existence of humanity. In Grendel by John Gardner and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, this idea is skewed by the actions of their respective monsters. Both of these novels captivate the reader by having a monster narrate the story, which is uncommon in many works of literature. Although in Frankenstein the reader only witnesses the monster as a narrator once, it has a profound impact on the overall storyline of the book. In Grendel, the book is entirely narrated by Grendel, so the reader adapts to the idea of the main character being a monster.
