The Monster is not educated but was able to prove that he could learn a language in a short amount of time. However, just because he is capable of
But no one ever listened to Simon, they made him an outcast, when really he could have helped them a lot.That is why they couldn’t think straight, they turned into monsters because they didn’t follow their “guides”. Otherwise, the story may have taken a better
Victor does not handle his monster, or his fears, well. When Frankenstein first sees his monster, he immediately “escaped, [from the room the monster was in] and rushed down stairs. p50” As the monster is an externalization of Frankenstein’s fears, this escape, this inability to so much as look at the monster, can be interpreted as Frankenstein’s inability to acknowledge his fears and anxieties. Like with anxiety, denying the monster’s existence only causes him to grow more destructive. Victor falls ill with anxiety, and as a result of Victor’s neglect the monster begins to destroy his life.
For any child to witness their parents fighting and then separating is devastating. This causes the children to experience anxiety. Having anxiety at such a young age is terrible because of the feeling of worrying and nervousness contently affecting them. Such as when Thebes is crying in her bedroom because she was facing anxiety. “I want to help her, but she keeps rejecting me.” (74) This quote shows how damaged Thebes is by anxiety and because by rejecting any help from her peers is also a sign of anxiety.
When the creature was just brought to life he was confused about the surroundings around him. Victor never explained to the creature about his situation. Humans were afraid of the creature and did not want to be near him. The creature did not have a companion or any other human being that felt the same manner as him and grew each day more angry and full of revenge towards Frankenstein. Mary Shelley did have a husband but she felt that he was not a responsible companion and doing his share of the relationship.
The narrator of the story is in fact a civilian from the town who is telling the story. Emily had a sad upbringing from having an overprotective father, the limitations of her gender, and other sad events that occured in her life are what make her unreachable to the community and saw that as an excuse to ignore and just let her be. It is evident when Emily tried to hold onto her father’s dead body that she was doing something wrong but the townspeople allow it and excuse her from it. The townspeople stated, “We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that.
In Julia’s case, it might have been that she was textbook thinking like a woman, but to her, it was because she had endured bullying throughout middle school and high school. Julia had become extremely self-conscious, so when Gavin joked at her expense, it brought back the painful memories of
Ray Bradbury’s “The Veldt” teaches readers that people are scared of change. In the short story, the parents feel like they have no use as a result of the Happylife Home taking care of the children by itself without the need for their parents. The parents dislike the change of not having to care for their own children, which causes them to feel useless. Although, some disagree and say that the main theme of the story is abandonment. The children were abandoned by their parents and nursery.
Victor Frankenstein is inadequate to “mother” his creation. Victor is so horrified that he runs away from the creation in two different ways. When he finds his creation missing, instead of looking for him, he tries to forget about it all. Victor didn’t want to deal with the effects of his actions. Victor doesn’t show affection and care outside of his immediate family and friends, so “mothering” was not in his instincts.
She didn’t want her baby to die or to be sent to the Fringes but what she received from her sister was isolation (Wyndham 71). “So there has been a Deviation; and deviation, any deviation from the true image is blasphemy - no less.
