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

Other than appearance the men’s background can also be compared. Perry’s home life can be interpreted as rough from both works of “In Cold Blood”. It is easily decided within the audience which killer was dealt the lower hand in life. With Perry having to deal with both an abusive father and a mother succumbing to the temptations of alcohol, he is looked upon as the unlucky child who grew up in the wrong conditions. Realizing the killer who was handed a better childhood turned into a ruthless killer leads the audience into blaming Dick completely for his actions as he has nothing to fall back on as a scapegoat.
Subsequently creating a rising hope for the people who fear the man who gave him this exact scar. Well, Voldemort is the epidemy of the sense of evil everyone who is against him dares not speak his name and the ones who follow him have an unrelenting loyalty with him.

The film also portrayed Bob Ewell as a person with little education and was very arrogant. He got an innocent man put into jail, could have abused his daughter, spit on a person that was trying to do what they thought was right for their morals, and tried to kill kids that had done absolutely nothing to him. When Bob Ewell attacked Jem and Scout, it made people furious.
It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.” (White 339) All of these strange feelings contradicting each other inside him cause him to have a lot of problems growing and changing. He is unable to grow as a person for most of the story after due to his own inner struggles, but he does change his mind about and regret many things, like when he killed Gareth and Gaheris, “’You couldn't help it.' 'I could have helped it.' He was in his customary religious misery. 'It was my fault.'"

The countless hours that Victor spent creating his monster caused him to become ill, and sleep deprived. This trait of being too obsessive in the process of making the monster caused him to be isolated from all his family and any outside communication. This eventually caused him destruction and will eventually create something that he viewed as hideous, which was the monster. Victor said at the end of the novel to Walton “They are dead .
