Comparing and contrasting characters and the movies itself is difficult. Private Trip in Glory himself is very non open and broken. Acting tough and thinking he's better then everyone in the 54th Massachusetts.

It was very common for the Spanish to be extremely harsh as they had one goal in mind witch was greed. They would torcher children, hang people, and even have dogs brutally attack them. Ferdinand and Isabella sought after power and declared themselves rulers of the natives and all that apposed were enslaved, torched, than killed.
Frankenstein was attacked and taunted by villagers, and did not fight back. He also took joy in being outside and observing nature.

Some of his soldiers were so despicable, they rode on the backs of the natives, like they were horses. Even worse, they beheaded children, for their own amusement. What did Columbus do? Nothing. As a leader, he never stopped his men from committing these crimes, but instead watched as the hundreds of thousands of natives committed suicide, yet, people still glorify his name.

Baker also mentions “The dripping head is an image of the hunters savagery”. This quote shows how the brutal killing of the sow directly relates to the hunters savagery, their cruel nature of slowly killing the beast and laughing and enjoying it. They don’t mean to kill this animal to survive but rather enjoy having blood on their hands. Lastly, when Simon discovers the head in the forest and has “a talk” with it, the Lord of the Flies mentions “Fancy thinking the beast was something you could hunt and kill… You knew, didn’t you? I’m part of you” (Golding 147-148) This proves the beast which everyone is afraid of is just a disguise, and the boys should be afraid of each other, as man is inherently evil.
Fraser's utilization of humor works to keep the reader or the audience engaged, makes their work memorable, and provides comic relief which overall, greatly contributes to her arguments for and against vegetarianism. Humor positively contributes to Fraser's overall argument and allows the reader to engage in her writing, without the possibility of them becoming uninterested.

For example, Fraser begins to talk percentages, “People who call themselves vegetarians somewhere between 4 and 10 percent of us, depending on the definition; only 1 percent of Americans are vegans, eating no animal products at all” (Fraser 546). Due to the fact that she speaks about numbers in her first three sentences of
Unlike describing the slaves as helpless, mindless livestock, he portrays the slaveholders as predators, usually lions. One example is when his master died, so all of his property had to be collected and divided between his children. Douglass became the property his late master’s daughter, Lucretia, and she sent him back to Baltimore; with a sigh of relief, he exclaims, “I escaped a fate worse than lion’s jaws” (41). The lion’s jaw does not directly represent Lucretia, but a slave plantation as a whole, which Douglass had never before labored on. He mentions slavery as a whole again as being a dangerous place of animals when he escapes north; he notes, “I felt like one who had escaped a den of hungry lions” (92).
