Honestly, the cruel inside the Creature does not appear by itself; it is gradually formed due to the affects of many factors. At the beginning of the story, Shelly depicts the Creature is harmless, which totally opposite with his appearance. As a reader, I cannot stop wondering why makes he lost his trust in human? I think that only when we place ourselves in his situation, then we will understand the stress that he has to suffer. Therefore, when we a take a closer look at the Monster, we can easily recognize that he becomes more dangerous after he is abandoned by everyone and is alienated by society.
Finally, Mortola’s hunger for what she feels is justice is stronger than ever. From a quarrel between a father and his daughter, to two feuding kingdoms, and a quest for vengeance, Inkspell is full of struggles of great importance. One of the important conflicts in the book is Meggie and Mo not seeing eye to eye. Mo often has fights with Meggie because he feels she is too obsessed with the notebooks about the Inkworld. Mo expresses his frustration in saying, “Perhaps I ought to turn into a glass man or turn my skin blue, since my wife and daughter obviously think more of fairies and glass men than of me.” Mo is angry because Meggie is obsessed with a world other than the one they live in; No less, it is a world that has caused much pain in their family, making it hurt a that much more.

The themes of the story are both the same being betrayal and anger. They are however expressed in a different way. Unferth and Beowulf show anger toward each other in different ways for example unferth is shown as someone who is jealous of beowulf and will use any flaws that he sees in him to make him look bad. “unlocked his thoughts with these unfriendly words for the journey of beowulf” The author has a style where it keeps you up to see whats next and what would be beowulf’s response to what unferth said to him. In the story The Wife’s Lament it is too showing betrayal and anger too but not quite the same way unferth and beowulf did it’s with the wfe and the husband being together till death due them part but the husband disappears to
Unlike the epic, where the character Grendel is an evil being that should be eliminated, the movie gives Grendel a reason for being how he is. The change in the story and addition of characters takes away the fatherly figure that Beowulf should see in Hrothgar and replaces it with feelings of pity for Grendel. The film alternated the respect given to the king of Dane’s merely to add “more plot” for today's viewers. The
The speaker begins his tale in his room alone and apart from society. The absence of other human characters deliberately aids the theme (Dhahir). The speaker has been left with only his grief-filled thoughts which eventually bring him the disturbing raven. When the speaker first heard the tapping, he thought it was a visitor who had come to end his loneliness: “‘Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door” (Poe). He seems to be excited about the visitor, but does not imagine it being a bird.

Of course, Beowulf is seen as a hero who brings hope and wisdom to both the Danes and Geats. “ Danes and visiting Geats celebrated as one, drank and rejoiced” ( L.231-232). Furthermore, Beowulf rejoiced the people typically what a hero can be seen doing.
This time spent here helped to begin to develop the creature’s mind, proving he was in fact rather intelligent. The monster knew that he was different from these people, often describing them all as beautiful. He knew they would not accept him, and yet his search for belonging and family continue to surge the novel forward. While the creature is lonely and hurting, his actions slowly become malicious. These outward acts of rage seem to be motivated by his anger towards Victor, for exiling and hating him.
Choices Distinguish the Individual A man defines himself by his choices. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley both embody comparable characteristics about selfishness, prejudice, and desiring excess knowledge. The victims, Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein’s creation, become adversely influenced by Lord Henry and Victor Frankenstein respectively in divergent ways. Choosing to ignore his creation, Victor Frankenstein disregards any physical or emotional care needed by the creature. On the opposite hand, Lord Henry subjugates Dorian to his teachings by dominating his thoughts and lifestyle.
In Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein (1818), Shelley shows her audience that while acquiring knowledge leads to survival for the Creature and power for Victor Frankenstein, the path to obtain this knowledge leads to the destruction of one’s self. Education and knowledge have major negative effects on both of the characters’ attitude, perception, and decisions. The life experiences of each character is dependent on the amount of knowledge that the character possesses. Knowledge gives Victor Frankenstein a superiority complex, and it changes the Creature’s perspective of the world and the people in it. The Creature, like a baby, is brought into the world with no prior knowledge of how society behaves.
