He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
However, despite the fact that they have slight differences, when comparing their experiences and characterization, it is apparent that they are more similar than they are different. They are similar because, they both lived in isolation, were abandoned, and lived like outcasts in the modern society. They both lived in isolation because other people thought that they were different. For instance, Victor Frankenstein was left all alone at a tender age after the death of his mother, and he never got a feeling of having a family. In addition, Victor was obsessed with dead bodies and creating a being.
Although he comes with friendly intentions, the Monster is treated violently and with contempt, essentially being forced into his alienation to survive and becoming the “monster” he is already thought of as a result. The Monster’s actions are a response to the treatment he has received from others, everyday villagers and Victor alike. With little known about his origins and no way to explain himself, there is no hope for the Monster to assimilate himself. This is present in other characters of the novel as well, for example, Richard Walton, who has self-alienated in order to gain distinction and knowledge. The Monsters origins and appearance develop these themes of alienation throughout the novel, themes that are further developed by other characters and play an important role in delivering the message of
His quest for absolute knowledge and power will eventually end his own ruin. Frankenstein created a Creature that later resented him for his creation. The unnamed Creature believes that Frankenstein should have to pay for the damage he has done. The Creature and Frankenstein develop a contrasting relationship throughout the novel and end in somewhat compassionate relationship. Frankenstein created a Creature out of recycled parts which resulted in the creature not being highly appealing.
In Mary Shelley 's Frankenstein, Victor, the creature, and Walton all incorporate lessons about isolation in their storytelling: don 't run from your problems and fears everyone needs love and companionship is a privilege. Throughout the story, Victor Frankenstein runs away from all of his problems, teaching us not to do the same. Frankenstein irresponsibly created his own life from without thinking of the consequences. When piecing together the body parts of dead individuals, he deludes himself with the belief that he is creating something fantastic and beautiful, until he sees it alive. Victor was alone, on a dark and gloomy night in his laboratory when he brought the creature to life.
It is obvious that the Monster had a really difficult life in the world surrounded with normal people, and very difficult for him to decide what he really is, if he is a child or a man or maybe an animal because he was even more ugly than an animal but yet he moved forward on his life being aware that he did not belong to this world, he is incapable of finding enough food to feed himself or find a comfortable place where he could sleep so it was all understood from him that he did not fit to this world of nature, when in the novel is described his life with all the description of his life in nature and all his sufferings we can immediately know that he felt very lonely and all his crimes were committed based on his loneliness, he is somehow compared with Satan for some situations that both of them had been through them (Bloom, 2007, p.8). In his book, Joshua (2007, p.47) also explains the senses of the Monster, who in a way understands all the situations around him and he was able to response to his surroundings and also aware of his
The night Frankenstein finishes his creation, it looks nothing like what he wanted. He had gone crazy over making the monster and the creature did not look beautiful at all, instead it looked ugly and terrible. The unappealing look approaches Frankenstein to him, being frighten and leaving his apartment. An atmosphere of mystery comes in because you do not know how the monster would turn out at first and also as to why Frankenstein left because of own his
No one cares about Gatsby because he never made any worthwhile connections as doing so was never important to him. Instead, he only made superficial connections with people. In the latter parts of the book, we are given an almost hyperbolic example, when, "The minister glanced several times at his watch, so I took aside and asked him to wait for half an hour. But it wasn 't any use. Nobody came" (Fitzgerald 174).
Frankenstein never realises that all the monster wants is a companion, he cannot see his own emotions reflected in his creation. Through this Shelley is demonstrating that humans may never have the capability to fully understand the things they create through scientific endeavours, therefore reinforcing her concept that too much knowledge can only lead to downfall. Frankenstein had a wonderful life and in creating then abandoning his monster he destroyed that. The bitter link is the fact that Frankenstein, in leaving his monster, in making his creation go into the world alone, sealed his fate to die alone on the sea, the majority of his loved ones dead at his
Growing up with this lack of authority and the inability to differ between right and wrong is the ideal environment for the makings of a psychopath. Alex has no real connection with anyone; no one has ever been there to guide and teach him that there is a better path than the one he is on. He is overlooked by everyone in his life and has never had a meaningful relationship with anyone. The environmental and nurture concepts would both agree that Alex is a product of the world around him, apathetic and selfish. The 1971 film, A Clockwork Orange is a classic piece of work in the world of psychology.
