Frankenstein In her fiction novel, Frankenstein, Mary Shelley implies that trust and friendship are a key part of a functional and sane being. The lack or loss of this can lead to the desire of vengeance and revenge for the deeds that were done to them. The creature, through the actions of Victor Frankenstein ventured towards vengeance as his trust was lost for his creator. This is done from the very beginning when Frankenstein abandons the creature after he sees what he truly created and fears it. Frankenstein spent many weeks and months on his creation and put tedious amounts of work into his experiment.
In Grendel, Grendel does speak of himself as no more honorable or brave than any brainless animal. He call himself “Pointless, ridiculous monster crouched in the shadows, stinking of dead men, murdered children, martyred cows.”(6), Grendel’s nihilism is exhibited in Chapter One when he spots the signs of spring and also notes places where he has committed extreme acts of violence. Him admitting his wrongs but having no remorse expresses that he knew what he was doing yet did not care who he hurt. The answer of whether or not Grendel was a truly evil monster can’t really be determined due to it being a matter of opinion. However, the most common definition for monster from Webster’s Dictionary is “one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character.” This being known, Grendel does fit into the role of being a monster seeing as murder is rarely ever acceptable in human
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

They are agents of vendetta and certification. They condemn him, though the society applauds him.
The Creature would have only kidnapped poor William if it weren’t for the boy flaunting that his papa “is M. Frankenstein” (141), and after his death the Creature feels little remorse, moving to frame Justine. We are lead to believe that the Creature would have never done these acts, if it weren’t for his rage at Victor’s abandoning him, “misery made [him] a fiend” (98). All of the other murders still lead back to Victor, and Shelley uses these instances to teach us that there is always a hidden motive or a circumstance that pushes people-- or creatures-- to commit acts of crime. The Creature just wishes to “revenge [his] injuries” (144) that Victor caused

The Evil Within Iago Ancient Greek playwright, Sophocles expresses, “The soul that has conceived one wickedness can nurse no good thereafter.” The term “evil” is interpreted in various aspects however; Iago clearly allows malice to take full control and eliminates any possibility of integrity. The concept of immoral conduct is explained by Steve Taylor, a PhD and author of Psychology Today, as, “‘Evil’ people are those who are unable to empathize with others.” Therefore, Iago embodies the attributes of evil through the desire to cause damage to others. The malicious intent of Iago is revealed with his strategy to destroy the marriage between Othello and Desdemona. Through the practice of rhetoric, Iago expresses that, “I’ll pour this pestilence
Not only does she deal with pain, but she also deals with self image. She's constantly looking at herself through her self portraits. 4. Chadwick states: "...Kahlo's The Broken Column (1944)... reinforces the woman artist's use of the mirror to assert the duality of being, the self as observer and observed. ... Kahlo used painting as a means of exploring the reality of her own body as her consciousness of its vulnerability; in many cases the reality dissolves into a duality, exterior evidence versus interior perception of that reality."
From an American perspective, Osama bin Laden is a radical Islamist monster responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians. This may be true, but from a jihad perspective, Osama bin Laden can be seen as a hero who was martyred while fighting for his faith. People fear things they do not understand, ignorance and bliss and everyone would like to believe that their personal path and beliefs are inherently “good” or “right”. Islam, communism, they are just ideas, and as “un-American” as they may be this does not constitute evil. Killing innocent people is evil, and the US is just as guilty as anyone for this, the only difference is how people feel they can justify the actions.
