“Somebody was fool enough to do it, but I took it off again. If calico an’t good enough for such a purpose, it isn’t good enough for anything. It’s quite as becoming to the body. He can’t look uglier than he did in that one.” Scrooge listened to this dialogue in horror.”

A monster being more human than a human is the intriguing and bold concept that Mary Shelley successfully conveys throughout Frankenstein. As the story progresses a clear shift of protagonists is crafted creating a fascinating yet subtle paradox, that allows the reader to empathise with the monster. This subtle paradox seems to be one of the guiding plotlines that makes this story an excellent reflection of human arrogance. While it may seem difficult to empathize with a hideous murderous monster, the reader is constantly reminded that he was built to be loving and exactly like a human. However, after constantly being corrupted and morally tested by human thinking the monster is led to become aggressive.
“Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred. "(Shelly 94).
Saw proves in one aspect because the characters had made a decision to “waste” their lives in some fashion. Dr. Lawrence, in Saw, wasted his life because he didn't appreciate what he had, a wife who cared about him and a young daughter, because he was cheating. Jigsaw viewed that as an opportunity to allow Lawrence whether he has the will to kill for his family. Given these points, the idea about human nature is that we are all essentially trapped in our own choices and actions because of the consequences that we will have to
Having a family plays a big role on a person because it affects them mentally and physically. Without a family and their love, a person may feel sad, lonely, or even depressed. In the book, Frankenstein many of the main characters were isolated from the affection of their family. That caused them to be affected negatively in many ways. The family motif in Frankenstein symbolizes how the absence of love and affection can negatively impact the characters.

The Ignorance of Chris McCandless One day Chris McCandless decided to forget his whole present life and throw it all away. I don’t see how he could be so comfortable running away into the wilderness in Alaska. I think he already had a good life and could of had a better life. Chris was a young educated man who graduated from Wilbert Tucker High School and Emory University. I think his main reason for deciding to leave was because of the way his parents treated him.
In Beowulf’s time, people admired a traditional hero who destroyed evil and protected the people by fighting monsters. This was the hero’s place in his society, and today a hero’s place is still not too different in fictional work. We see similarities between Beowulf and today’s fictional heroes in that they fight monstrous villains and always have a moment where they hit a low point in their story to defend their people or complete their mission. The first way Beowulf is similar to today’s fictional heroes is that they both still fight larger-than-life villains and monsters. In Beowulf, we see Grendel, the descendant of Cain who unleashes his power over Herot.
Marie-Claire Blais’ book, Mad Shadows is a controversial story that would lead the way for many more. It explores the dissolution of a family because of the mother’s love for vanity. The conclusion of each character’s lives was a direct consequence of their actions. The 3 main characters: Louise, Isabelle-Marie, and Patrice exemplify why the quote “Whether our life has been a triumph or a tragedy can only be judged at its very end.” can relate to Mad Shadows. Louise exemplifies this quote in her life because she was the source of the problem.
Yes, I do think Gene kills his innocence. I do not think Gene killed his innocence on purpose, thought. I believe that if Gene knew his actions would be the result in Finny’s death, that he would not have done anything, and as a result, keep his innocence. As soon as Gene shook the tree limb, he killed the innocence that he had and matured. The effects that followed that prove that he “killed”, or lost his innocence.
