Even as the seasons change, Victor misses the essence of the snowy, cool winter, and the sunshine and warmth of the summer, and the blooming flowers of the spring. It is obvious that Victor has let his creation take total control of his life because of the action of completely neglecting all of the changes around him. While Victor’s obsession is evident through his action during his time spent working on the monster, his feelings later on in the novel show the transformation of his character from obsessive to regretful. His feeling of remorsefulness is portrayed after seeing the monster come to life. Victor’s feeling toward the monster during his first few moments of life show his change from obsessive to regretful.
Victor is then taken to Belrive in order to find peace, there he pondered about the outcome caused by his actions. However rather than finding the peace his father wanted him to find his mind fills with the desire of revenge against his own creation. Unable to handle the emotional pressure he pursues a lonely trip to the valley of Chamounix. Here the mood then begins fluctuating as he purses internal peace but his guilt keeps tormenting his mind. He first “ceased to fear, or to bend before any being less almighty” (Shelly 107) and “a tingling long-lost sense of pleasure often came across [him] (Shelley 107), however then he found himself “fettered again to grief and indulging in the misery of reflection” showing the nature of his internal conflict.
Some of the main themes are the Bliss versus Bell, Bliss versus Lister, Bliss versus the other doctors, and Conkling versus Garfield. Dr. Bliss and Roscoe Conkling both have very bad intentions while Bell, Dr. Lister, and the other doctors have good intentions. Dr. Bliss is only trying to save Garfield for the reward, and Conkling is happy that the President was shot as he believes it is his ticket back into power. Bell tries to save Garfield’s with his new invention but is thwarted by Bliss. Lister tries to save many patients with antisepsis, but Bliss doesn’t use it which could be the biggest reason Garfield died.
At the end of “Eleonora”, Eleonora’s dead spirit manifests itself to speak to the narrator and forgives him for marrying again. Poe makes both men insane to emphasize that loss doesn 't just take an emotional toll, it also takes a mental one. Death is very important to these two stories because it is the main conflict with the two protagonists. Poe is emphasizing that death is random and it is incredibly powerful. He shows what happens to someone when they lose someone that meant a lot to them.
Death is a recurring theme in this book. Not only is death explained as being sad, but what is kind of weird is how death can be seen as sort of a happy thing. Dying, in general, is sad. But the whole ordeal of it can bring people together, or fix relationships that have been broken. In the case of Tuesdays With Morrie, by Mitch Albom, Morrie and Mitch were separated due to the fact that Mitch cared more about his job than the most important things in life; love, work, community, family, aging, forgiveness, and the main theme, death.
At first, Victor is happy that he created the creature and that he could continue his quest to get rid of diseases in his black plague ridden town. However, when he sees the creature face to face he notices the monstrosity that he had created and his rapidly overcome with fear and runs away. He is then overcome with determination as he is working on other scientific projects. Once he hears of Williams death, he is then overcome with sadness. Finally, he periodically switches between anger and sadness as he meets the creature, learns of his wish, and when he discovers the creature murdered Elizabeth.
Nature is a healing power for the characters. The monster finds a healing power in nature after being rejected by the society. He feels very miserable yet his only refugee is nature as it heals his pains. Frankenstein himself gains strength from the air and the natural scenery after losing all of whom he loves at the hands of the monster. Shelley states "We passed a fortnight in these perambulations: my health and spirits had long been restored, and they gained additional strength from the salubrious air I breathed, the natural incidents of our progress, and the conversation of my friend."
Now educated and able to speak, he feels that the family he has been watching should accept him as a friend (Shelley 114). Isolation during the making of the monsters 53 and 162 Less evident and arguably more significant is Frankenstein’s isolation due to his guilt. Frankenstein feels that he can not tell anyone about the monster he has created because of the horrible things that the monster has done. The way that Frankenstein interacts with the people closest to him shows how he withdraws from them to isolate himself after the monster is created. One example of this is conveyed when Frankenstein and his friend, Henry Clerval, go on a trip.
Perhaps because he saw the brokenness of Victor after the death of his Father and Elizabeth and felt sympathy, similar to what he said he felt after the death of Henry, “I pitied Frankenstein; my pity amounted to horror: I abhorred myself.” (Shelley 271) Perhaps he felt satisfied enough getting Victor to break that much, in order to ignore the last brother and follow him. If Frankenstein would have less emotion I wonder if the monster would have hesitated at all in going after Ernest. Even so how could Ernest possibly feel being the only one left in his family, not knowing why they are all dying or that Victor is the cause. That has really got to be hard on a person. I wonder what happened to him after all of this.
These obstacles made Anh realise more about himself and how he should live his life. In the poem ‘This Lime-tree Bower my Prison’ Samuel Coleridge is forced to stay under the tree, making him not able to go on the adventure with his friends. His frustration triggers him to go on an inner journey, in his mind he imagines what his friends are going through, exploring the wilderness. This changed his perspective on his situation
