10)Victor’s dismay for the monster doesn’t mean he shouldn’t take responsibility and take care of his creation. 11) Victor spent plenty of time on the creature and the monster, larger and stronger than Victor petrified Victor which caused him to enter a state of illness caused by fear. 12) A person who lacks an identity such as Victor attempted to create a life which resulted in a hurried project and a scary creature. 13) Since Victor played God in the creation of the monster the monster had the right to despise Victor. (Shelley) 14) Since Victor denies the monster social acceptance, the monster is left to self educate himself which leads to isolation issues which cause violence.
He gradually calls a meeting as he sees that the littluns are being driven by fear. He precedes to ask if the beast was actually seen by any of the boys and if it is real like a true leader would. As the littluns talk, they are made fun of by Jack but Ralph still insists on learning what they are afraid of. He understands that if the beast is real he must be able to defend the group from it as he is the leader. Ralph remains to be fair and starts to say, “we’ll have a vote on them; on ghosts I mean; and then go to the shelters because we’re all tired” (90).
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.
On the Cyclopes' island, he was interested in meeting the owner of the cave who had such fine cheeses. However, his men only want to steal the cheese and leave hastily because there was an uneasiness about the cave. Nevertheless, he fixes upon staying and not soon after, the cyclops Polyphemus returns. He and his men are now in peril because of Odysseus' recklessness. The consequence of his decision is that shortly after Polyphemus devours most of his men but this bolsters him to conjure a plan to escape.
When Travis, Eckels, and the other men first arrive in the past Travis is warning them of the consequences that could come if they step off the path and enter the jungle. Travis believes that killing even one mouse would change the future (Bradbury 140). Eckles, however, needed to be convinced. Travis explained that if one mouse died, all the future generations of that mouse would die, which would lead to all the animals who ate those mice to possibly die as well (Bradbury 140). Travis was successful in convincing Eckles, however, when the meet the dinosaur Eckles loses control of his actions and leaves the path.
However, as Polyphemos attacked the ship with rock, Odysseus again made to yell back to the beast. Around him, his crew muttered, “‘Godsake, Captain!/Why bait the beast again? Let him alone!’” (Book 9, Lines 537 - 538) All the crew wanted was to get out safely. They realized that Odysseus needn’t “bait the beast again.” They ask “Captain!, Why” for they see Odysseus is merely being cocky. Yet, Odysseus ignores them and respond to the monster by shouting “Kyklops,/if ever mortal man inquire/how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him/Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye:/Laertes’ son, whose home is Ithaca!” (Book 9, Lines 548 - 552) Odysseus makes a very large tactical mistake; he tells Polyphemos’ that his is “Odysseus … Laertes’ son.” Odysseus demonstrates recklessness and selfishness because he wishes to take credit for “put[ing] Polyphemos to shame”.
Would hunting be an option? “A Sound of Thunder” tells a story about a man named Eckels, who was willing to pay a company a certain amount of money to travel back to the past and hunt a particular animal, in that period of time. This short story explains the thrilling adventure that Eckels encountered in capturing the deadly beast, in this case, a Tyrannosaurus and the aftermath of his actions. In this short science-fiction story, Bradbury captures the relationship between the past, present and future and highlights the future tragedy that society creates for neglecting several cautions mentioned in the present.
When Ralph and Piggy are saying there is no monster Jack is yelling at the same time there is a beast and he will provide protection from it. For young boys whom some are no older than six protection from the big scary beast is very appealing. Even the boys who leave Ralph for Jack still feel guilty because they choose to not elect Jack they keep Ralph but then they slowly leave when Ralph doesn’t know. They know Jack is bad yet they still make the conscious decision to abandon Ralph’s leadership. This is point at which they go from boys to savages.
He was scared when seeing the scorpion-men. He who used to protect his people from Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven now was protected from lions by Sin, the moon god. In the part of his search for everlasting life, the description of Gilgamesh’s appearance is repeated many times. “His cheeks were so hollow and face was so sunken. His mood was so wretched, and his visage was so wasted.
Jack tries to get ralph impeached, he uses his rhetorical skills to twist ralphs words. He tells the group “He’d never have got us meat”, asserting that hunting skills make for effective leader. Jack assigns a high value only to those who he finds useful or agreeable to his views and looks to silence those who do not please him. Another time where jack is manipulating is where he uses the boy’s fear of the beast to control their behavior. Jack creates the idea of the beast and provides just enough evidence of its existence in order for the boys to follow him blindly.
