Zeus protects the immortal and mortal world, in terms of laws, order and life in general. The Greeks saw Zeus as the supreme ruler of gods and of men. I believe that the Greeks truly worshiped the gods and felt that they were perfect immortal beings.

The Greek religion was more about praying the too gods and trusting them to show them the way. The Greeks didn’t believe in rituals and ceremony’s like the Romans did.

While in the laboratory creating the monster, the setting around Victor is very mysterious which could make one infer that something dark will happen. Victor describes the atmosphere by adding; “The rain pattered dismally against the pains, and my candle was nearly burnt out, ” (Shelley 42). Just as this is said, the monster comes to life taking victor aback by his catastrophic, frightening looks. The gloomy atmosphere reflects exactly onto the key event of the creation of the monster.

Most stories from ancient times to now use the idea of good vs. evil or heros vs. villians in some form. In most stories these roles are clearly defined with a definite idea of who is on which side, and the characters in these roles stay in them throughout the story. Other times who is on which side is less clearly shown, and shifts in characters from one side to the other. Over the course of Frankenstein, Victor and the monster alternate the archetypical roles of hero and villain, thus Mary Shelley is saying that people and characters are not strictly defined to be in one role.
In the book, Frankenstein Mary Shelley uses three devices to make the reader feel and understand what is going on.

Furthermore, it is Victor’s feelings of both obsession and repugnance towards the labors he undertakes to create this monster that expresses the abject being used ambivalently. Likewise, it is due to the monster
