Throughout the novel there is no difference between someone 's outer and inner beauty, ultimately one 's physical appearance ends up influencing how others character 's perceived them. “Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay, To mould me, Man, did I solicit thee, From darkness to promote me?” (Milton, Book X, 743–745). The following quote appears in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, when Adam grieves over his fallen condition. The creature within Frankenstein, can identify his feelings and compares himself to both Satan and Adam. However, like Adam, he feels shunned by his creator, although he strives to be good.
He had betrayed frankenstein in the part that the monster had turned evil and wanted something back in return for all the pain and suffering the monster has had. He was really hoping that making the monster would help more discoveries. He is an innocent being called a villain.”Frankenstein I’m astounded. This is the greatest discovery of the age! A wonderful piece of work!”.
Frankenstein, Dialectical Journal- Chapter 4-The End A theme that was very prevalent in these final chapters was, Creator and Creation, furthermore how the monster and Frankenstein are more alike than they like to think. Both characters had been wronged by the other and made it their missions to destroy each other, losing parts of themselves along the way. “You, who call Frankenstein your friend, seem to have a knowledge of my crimes and his misfortunes. But, in the detail which he gave you of them, he could sum up the hours and months of misery which I endured, wasting in impotent passions.” (Shelly 273) The monster feels as though Frankenstein has wronged him in every way, first by making him ugly, second by abandoning him, and lastly he destroyed the only thing he had hope in; a mate. In the previous quote he explains that there is more that just one side to every story, he explains to Walton the pains he went to on account of Frankenstein.
“For the first time, also, I felt what the duties of a creator towards his creature were, and that I ought to render him happy before I complained of his wickedness.” (Shelley 70/71) In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein from 1808 Victor Frankenstein decides to awake a being out of several dead body parts and tries to make afterlife possible after the death of his loved mother. Driven by his pursuit of success he does not take consequences or failure into account. This paper argues to what extend the creator Victor Frankenstein is responsible for the creature he has developed and could have prevented the loss of his loved ones killed by the monster due to revenge. What should be taken into account first is, that Frankenstein was a young man. He was seventeen years old (25) when he left his family and moved to Ingolstadt to study science at the university.
I remembered Adam’s supplication to his Creator [...] He had abandoned me, and in the bitterness of my heart I cursed him” (119). The Creature is immensely influenced by “Paradise Lost” using many references to relate itself to its scenario.It finds itself more similar to Satan since both have diffilcuties coping with rejection from their Creators. However, the Creature shares more similarities to Adam since
Have you ever judged a person by how they look? Or Ran away from your problem but they seem to come back and haunt you? Well in the book Gris Grimly 's Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein had created a creature so horrible looking that he ran away from it. Everyone believed that he wasn’t a human being, but I believe that everything he 's done was the most humane thing he could have done. The creature was a kind and "benevolent soul" that cared for everyone until he would be turned away from humanity all because he looked different.
After analyzing Victor Frankenstein and his creation, it obvious that they both have an unbalanced subconscious. At the start of the novel, Frankenstein’s id was more prominent, and after he realized what he’d created, his superego took over with his sense of guilt. The creature on the other hand, primarily follows his id, and doesn’t feel guilty of what he’s done. Despite their hatred for one another, Frankenstein and the monster are very much the same. The monster is a product of Frankenstein; “Creator and created” (Hennessy).
In both novels Frankenstein and The Handmaids Tale the question of what it means to be human is a reoccurring theme in which emphasizes the passions and desires every individual may have... There are both dark and bright sides of being human as overcontrolling passions may lead to madness, distress, and use of violence. Victor 's overpowering passion for knowledge led to him doing the extreme by playing God and bringing a creature to life in a world where it would never be accepted as society tends to only accept humans that are visually appealing- as for society what it means to be human depends mainly on the outer appearance. The monster wanted nothing more but compassion and human contact, something babies desire for the most, but since
The accentuation likewise does this since exclamation marks are set after short phrases. Frankenstein made arrangements for the creature's components to be 'wonderful'. This passes on a striking picture that stands out from Victor mockingly rehashing wonderful. This accentuates empathy for the beast since Frankenstein infers that the creature is a terrible joke. This guides the audience to sympathize with him.
The light allows the monster to be recognized as an ugly creature. Also, the light of the fire gives the monster warmth, however, it causes him pain because he gets burnt. This ties into the work as a whole because one of themes of Frankenstein is that the light of science is good until you pursue it too far. Just like Victor Frankenstein pursued knowledge too far and attempted to do God’s job of creation. The light Victor has seen quickly ends.
This is essentially true because it was Frankenstein who created the Creature and made him a monster by abandoning him. It is Frankenstein who is the monster Frankenstein hating himself for lack of thought when unleashing his creation into the world upon his own kind., the monster hating him for his abandonment. In their hate they are each fighting for control of the
He is also seeking revenge on Frankenstein by threatening him to choose between complying with his demands or letting your family die. Furthermore, the theme of light/dark is present in both as in Othello, Iago says that he will turn Desdemona’s king act into something evil and dark. The contrast between light and dark is shown as Desdemona’s good deed is the light and way Iago will portray it to Othello is the dark. Similarly in Frankenstein, the light dark imagery is present, although not as evident, in that the way the creature communicates to Frankenstein is somewhat light, as he is talking in a calm and reasonable manner. The darkness is shown when he threatens Frankenstein with the ultimatum, comply with my demands or he will kill all of Frankenstein’s friends and

Disgusted with himself, he gauges his eyeballs out and exiles himself from Thebes, and his hometown, Corinth. Thus, Oepidus the King is the true definition of a tragic hero, because of his excessive pride and self-righteousness that led him to fulfill his destiny. Oepidus the King is a very interesting play that I would definitely recommend to other people. The fact that it uses ancient tragedy really pulls it all together. Oepidus was just trying to do right by who believed was his father and mother but ended up making the gods mad.
