The article “Ways that abortion is evil” states that, ”Abortion is never a more personal choice but a grave offense to God and his creation. God’s plan for the little ones have been ruined” (Geoffery). Baby’s lives can be taken away very quickly and without any consent. In the epic poem Beowulf, Grendel took many lives away and didn’t care at all who it was or anything. The quote from Beowulf, "Till the monster stirred, that demon, that fiend/Grendel who haunted the moors, the wild/Marshes, and made his home in a hell” (Heaney 101) creates a horrible person who takes away lives for no reason except for pleasure.
The author shows this through Frankenstein’s thoughts and actions concerning the monster he created, and the monster’s habits following the discovery of its loneliness. Victor Frankenstein’s thoughts
The Chilean poet Pablo Neruda once described the emotional suffering that can be caused by the absence of someone in our lives,“Absence is a place so vast that you will pass through its walls and hang pictures in the air.” In Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, abandonment plays a large role in affecting the creature created by Victor Frankenstein. Victor has an unending thirst for knowledge that leads him to animate a creature made of dead body parts, when the creature is brought to life Victor is immediately disgusted and leaves his creation. The creature who is left on his own eventually kills all of Victor’s family and his friend. The creature’s violent behavior is due to the anger he feels from the lack of nurture he receives from his creator, however one could argue that the cause was his innate evil.
Mary Shelley utilizes the selection of detail in Frankenstein, to create a tone of anger and despair. Shelly uses the words “wild” and “broken” to describe the feelings of the creature following the horrifying meeting with Felix, Safie, and Agatha. These words convey the rejection the creature is faced with, giving a sense of lost hope. The encounter with the cottagers doesn’t go the way the creature planned, which enrages the creature sending him in rampage of destruction. Shelley uses alliteration to express the feelings the creature has towards his creator, Frankenstein.
From the moment he was brought to life the only thing he knew about himself was that he was seen as a monster, "I beheld the wretch - the miserable monster whom I had created," (Shelley, 59), which gave him the reasoning to act upon what he was labeled as. Except the monster was not a monster in the slightest. He was kind and was able to understand emotions. After stealing the families necessities he began to interpret the problems the family he was encountering when, "I discovered one of the causes of the uneasiness of the amiable family: it was poverty… I had been accustomed, during the night, to steal a part of their store for my own consumption; but when I found that I doing this I inflicted pain on that cottagers, I abstained," (Shelley, 114), however since society had already labeled this creature based on the outward appearance they were unable to look past it.
In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, both Victor and the creature have qualities that make them resemble “humans,” or “monsters.” A monster finds joy in bringing harm to others, and does anything to get what they want. They do this without thinking of the consequences, and may not feel regret afterwards. The creature repeatedly demonstrated this quality throughout the novel.
Lookism in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley One look at the creatures face and the people ran. They ran from this gruesome face that would chill anyone to their bones, but he was a splendid guy. Why did they run? Based on Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein Frankenstein’s monster was confused and abandoned by creator. Frankenstein discrimination is present in the monsters looks.
Unfortunately, the creature soon learns to be scared humans, who, frightened by his look, drive him away with stones and never really give him a chance to learn of his true identity. The real villain in Shelley’s story is neither Dr Frankenstein nor his creation – it's the hateful villagers. Only when experiencing their abuse will Frankenstein become a monster, acting out of revenge on those who refused to relinquish him an opportunity. This is the important myth, the original myth, and it suggests a radically different ethical and social order than the more popular belief of the Frankenstein myth. Overall, archetypes can be found woven throughout the novel Frankenstein in the form of ecumenical symbols and commons themes.
A major clue to the course of Frankenstein’s journey is revealed when he states that “..the first misfortune of my life occurred-an omen,as it were, of my future misery.” (18) This foreshadows the tragedies Victor will face for viewing life and death as insignificant. In the beginning chapters the reader is introduced to Victor and his great plans to create life.
the whole company... evoking the most horrible screams... madly fleeing…” This is separate from “Frankenstein” as a mob chased the undead being away. Similarly, the unknown outsider has rotting flesh, and came from an underground castle, while Frankenstein is created from cadavers. Unsurprisingly, both creatures stay mostly away from humans, favoring solitude over screams of horror or anger. This differs when Frankenstein meet the old blind man, “...but he escapes and comes to the thatched cottage of an old, blind man…”(CR31)
The passage on pages 43-44 in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein describe the events that occurred as Dr. Frankenstein brought his monster to life. She effectively uses her language and imagery to develop her tone, very dark and anguished. Her diction also helps to enforce the overall theme of the passage: don’t mess with the natural order of things. Immediately at the beginning of chapter five (p. 43), Shelley gives the reader an image of the day that the monster was born on: “It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils.” (Shelley 43).
Mary Shelley, in the last pages of Frankenstein, expresses that loneliness is the source of anguish. Shelley supports this with the juxtaposition of happiness and despair, biblical allusion, and parallel structure in order to point out that one’s affliction is caused by a lack of compassion and companionship. Shelley’s purpose is to show the result of perpetual loneliness so that she may better point out the necessary requirements of meaningful existence. Shelley first uses the juxtaposition of happiness and despair to show how loneliness causes anguish.
