A character who undergoes an important inner change, as a change in personality or attitude: The creature is a dynamic character. As he changes into a bad person from a good person to bad person. In the beginning of the novel, the creature is very kind to everyone. For example: He helps a girl from drowning in the river, He enters a village and hides in the hovel outside the house of a group of peasants of whom he grows fond.
There is no doubt that Victor Frankenstein is one of the most controversial characters in literature, yet the creature he creates is the one who really the steals the attention in one of the most recognized books of all time, by creating a controversy of his own. While some readers may sympathize him because he, like a child being left by their parent, was abandoned by his creator, some may also despise him for killing William, a mere child. Of course, either of these opinion could be proven true based on the evidence that may be found in the book, however, no what stance is taken, it does not change the fact that the creature is indeed human. .Humans make mistakes, feel, and need to cared for, just like the creature, despite his appearance.
Over time, the definition of morality has developed through deep consideration by many philosophers. Morality refers to the principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong, or good and bad behaviour, or a particular system of values and principles of conduct. A modern philosopher, Paul Bloom states that ‘humans are born with a hard wired morality: a sense of good and evil is bred in the bone.’ However, many others such as Plato, disagree with this theory as he believes that morals are conditioned, developed and affected by our surroundings. Supporting his notions, the personalities and characteristics of the characters throughout the text, ‘Frankenstein’ by Mary Shelley support the claim that morals are in fact influenced by others and that Bloom’s quote
In Frankenstein, there is a question of what it means to be fully human. Not in an anatomical form, but in an emotional and psychological way. In Frankenstein there is a definite point in which both victor and the monster cease to be human and become instead the animals both believe the other to be. Shelley tries to portray how allowing oneself to be governed by their emotions will destroy one’s life, and the lives of others, at a fundamental state.
Margaret brought her stretching to an abrupt pause, upon becoming aware of another’s presence, as both of her hands were held at high noon. She slowly turned her head in a seemingly fearful manner, as if she was in anticipation of another’s arrival, while simultaneously and slowly lowering her arms to their original clasped position about her kneecaps. I cautiously, yet satirically, raised my hands so that they were level with my chest, where my palms flashed towards Margaret, to grant her acknowledgement of who I was and to let her know that I didn’t mean any harm, almost as if she was some sort of feral creature. She released a deep sigh upon registering whom I was, of which I returned with subtle laughter, as I continued towards her before
Mary Shelley endured a lifetime of pain and suffering: she lost one of her children shortly after losing her step sister, Jane. While grieving her losses, she wrote her most famous work Frankenstein: her feelings of depression can be seen in themes throughout the novel. It also reflects the time period in which she wrote it. There was a shift in literature from tradition and logic to emotion and nature. In Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, uses nature to reveal and develop the creature's and creator’s actions and inner emotions.
DISCOVERY IN HUMAN BEINGS. Scientific human discovery is something that keeps hitting the headlines time and again in our world. So and so has invented this or that for this reason. One is on a scientific exploration of mass.
It is most commonly accepted as a universal truth that the way a child is raised plays a major role in their development from infancy to adolescence. The monster in Shelley’s Frankenstein is no exception. Although born into an adult body, the monster’s development adheres along many stages in the science of childhood development. Despite his grotesque appearance, the monster in Frankenstein has a human persona- a fact that Victor failed to realize upon the monster’s creation. If Dr. Frankenstein had understood the human component of the monster’s personality, the story of Frankenstein would be drastically altered as lives would not have been lost and the monster would not have lived the majority of his life in vengeful isolation.
Confucius, an influential Chinese philosopher, once famously stated "Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others"(Attack the Evil...). In the book of Frankenstein, the author Mary Shelley expresses a contrary idea for the protagonist Victor Frankenstein. Instead of ¨attacking the evil that is within yourself”, Victor Frankenstein, a mad scientist, creates the evil of himself, and leads to a series of consequences for the society, his family as well as friends. An individual's excessive passion for scientific invention and the blind pursuit of reputation as well as the parental-child tensions may result in the failure of responsibility toward one's self, family, a disrespect to nature, and eventually
I read a book, Frankenstein. I see the growth of a monster to be a human. A monster is made by Victor Frankenstein. Victor used many parts of other bodies to create a human, but he made a mistake. That body is a monster.
