Mary Shelley shows the endless amount of revenge and that it is driven by pure hatred and rage. The monster was not created to be vengeful, he was kind hearted but when he was poorly treated by Victor and then by the Delacey family, he turned cold. In her novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley displays the immorality and destructive effects that revenge can have through Frankenstein and his pursuit of the creature. Immediately after the monster had awoken, hatred thickened and would drive the plot to be all about revenge.The creature illustrates this hatred as he says to Victor, “Everything is related in them which bears reference to my accursed origin; the whole detail of that series of disgusting circumstances which produced it is set in view;
Not the End The exploration of the human nature is never end in every different era. Francis Coppola 's Apocalypse Now artfully applies classic Joseph Conrad 's Heart of Darkness 's to quest the reasons of evil human nature. These two independent magnum opuses have some similar and different places among the story plots, environments, and characterizations, but they all reflect the evil and virtuous human nature. At the beginning, the two works have plentiful the same "story" (Dorall 303). Heart of Darkness tells a story about Marlow, a young captain.
Humans are fundamentally wicked. William Golding, author of the bestselling novel ‘Lord of the Flies’, understood this basic principle. Thus, he wove it in as a theme in his book. In ‘Lord of the Flies’, William Golding discusses the nature of man in order to reveal that human nature is essentially evil by using indirect characterization and personification. William Golding uses indirect characterization to show that human nature is corrupt because humans naturally revert to a state of violence and evil.
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. Moreover, the natural world and concept of fate were included in my story with the “wind that blew out the candles”, commenting on how fate wished him to stop his research; much like the way fate led to Frankenstein 's illness and death in the novel. Lastly, the big ideas of isolation and passion are included throughout and are the driving force behind my character 's actions, yet my main character’s ambitions make him fallible, which is similar to Frankenstein.
The monster archetype has been one of the most riveting archetypes that surrounds the concept of ‘evil’. It has been portrayed as a supernatural creature with grotesque features that normally brings disruption to the city and needs to be tamed or controlled to bring once again peace to the story. Due to this, it is most commonly depicted with a negative connotation, and with the idea of horror and fear. The monster has been present since the bible, which was written approximately 3,400 years ago, with the anecdote of Goliath. It has remained with its primary role of converting the protagonist into a hero and providing fear to the storyline.
One of them and perhaps the most important one through the novel is his theory of the “ordinary” and “extraordinary men”. He explains his theory to Porfiry and Razumihin as such: “The second category all transgress the law; they are destroyers or disposed to destruction according to their capacities. The crimes of these men are of course relative and varied; for the most part they seek in very varied ways the destruction of the present for the sake of the better.” (pg. 207). For Raskolnikov, extraordinary men are the ones allowed to break the law because they are capable of living with the consequences of their crimes.
Diamond supplements this story with that of his father-in-law, Jozef, who, when given the opportunity to exact revenge on the man who brutally murdered his family during World War II, decided to place the murderer in the hands of the legal system. The man was released, leaving Jozef burdened with a sense of “guilt that he had not been able to protect his parents, and regret that he had failed in his responsibility to take vengeance” (11). On the basis of these narratives, Diamond advocates for a more widespread acceptance of the natural desire for revenge, an emotion which in is view is much like that of “love, anger, grief, and fear” (12). He concludes that great relief that can be supplied by properly expressing and acknowledging our thirst for vengeance. Taking a position so contrary to
Beowulf the brave, bold, and battle crazy Beowulf is an epic poem that tells the story of a glorious hero, by the same name, who wins fame and glory by battling and killing evil creatures that cross his path. Sea monsters, trolls, sorceresses, and dragons all fall at the hands of mighty Beowulf. The treacherous world in which we find ourselves seems ideal for producing heroes worthy of such heroic epics like Beowulf’s. It seems like in this world, the only way to fix one’s problems is to kill them. Many violent battles break out that leave the victor appearing valiant.
That all the deeds done by the monster in the novel is totally the fight towards beauty and ugliness. This throws light upon the idea it is not always simple to know about goodness and evilness with regard to outer beauty but it’s the beauty of the soul as the victor was projected as a good and loving human being and the monster evil but we can realize throughout the novel that this might be up turned for both victor and the monster Mary Shelley depicted the phenomena of beauty vs. ugliness of the soul very prominently in the novel Frankenstein . The thesis will describe that how the own loved ones fails to accept the outer beauty of their loved ones instead of focusing towards the
Moreover, he vows to bring Laius’ killer to justice, and that is exactly what he does. Pursuing punishment despite the fact that it is self-inflicted displays a tremendous amount of nobility. Through these situations, Oedipus is more than a king with an unfortunate fate, but he represents mankind itself. And so the strength that allowed him to be king in the first place, but also acted as his flaw, comes full circle to redemption. These ironic effects are attained through the quintessential elements of religion, the tragic hero archetype, and diction.
