While in the laboratory creating the monster, the setting around Victor is very mysterious which could make one infer that something dark will happen. Victor describes the atmosphere by adding; “The rain pattered dismally against the pains, and my candle was nearly burnt out, ” (Shelley 42). Just as this is said, the monster comes to life taking victor aback by his catastrophic, frightening looks. The gloomy atmosphere reflects exactly onto the key event of the creation of the monster. After the death of his brother, victor decides to travel to a summit.
“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
In the summer of 1816 the young Mary Shelley travels with her lover Percy Shelley to Switzerland where they meet some friends. To their disappointment, the summer is filled with grey and rainy days. One of their good friends, the poet Lord Byron, makes the suggestion that everyone of them should come up with a ghost story, in order to keep them occupied during the dull weather. This rather innocent suggestion, made amongst friends, induced Mary Shelley to write one of the world 's most epic stories, the story of Frankenstein. According to Anne K. Mellor, Mary Shelley 's waking nightmare on June 06, 1816, gave birth to one of the most powerful horror stories of Western civilization.
The poem, “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, has a dark and eerie tone. This poem is so sullen and creepy because his wife, Annabel Lee, was killed by the heinous, chilling winds that were sent by the angels. Her husband, and now a widower, wrote the poem beside Annabel Lee, who was dead in her tomb. This has a very dark and glum toon, which causes the reader jump into a somber mood. The text states in a dreadful and shocking tone, “That the wind came out of the cloud by night, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee” (Poe 25-26).
Death is a running theme throughout the story of Frankenstein, many of the characters die in one way or another before the story is over. Those who are not killed either wish to do die like the Creature or are in danger of dying soon like Walton, who has been in the Arctic for months and whose crew has lost faith in him. Ironically, Victor states early on in the novel "Wealth was an inferior object; but what glory would attend the discovery, if I could banish disease from the human frame, and render man invulnerable to any but a violent death! "(42) His actions result in the violent deaths of his family members and friends by the Creature. "Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world...

Victor has come home because of the death of little William and has found himself alone again in nature during a thunderstorm, grieving. “ No one can conceive the anguish I suffered during the remainder of the night, which I spent, cold and wet, in the open air.” (Shelley, 50-51) Again the characters go to NATURE to weep. Later in Frankenstein, Victor borrows a boat to be by himself and calm his sad soul, he had just destroyed the she monster and while he was out on the waters he dumped the remains into it. “Between two and three in the morning the moon rose; and I then, putting my basket aboard a little skiff, sailed out about four miles from the shore” (Shelley, 125) Victor got rid of the female monster to save his loved ones and wants to be at peace in this dark time in his
The Stranger, written by Albert Camus, It follows the story of our tragic hero, Meursault, shortly after his mother dies through the events that lead to him being sentenced to death. Camus uses the motif of weather to express Meursault’s emotions. The Stranger shows how even when a person does not explicitly express emotion they are shown in some way. How emotions are expressed is a window to a person's personality. I will first discuss how Meursault appears emotionless, than how Camus uses the motif of weather to express Meursault’s emotions for him and lastly what impact this makes.
Mr. Shiftlet continues on the road saying he has to get to, “Mobile” before nightfall only to hit a bump on the road tragically dying instantly. By this deviance he instantly got his karma. By the elements of mystery, southern pride, and deceivance, it made the plot thicken with an underlying personality of Mr. Shiftlet that he perceives to the outer world. I can now understand what the author was thinking when they wrote the title of this fiction story, “The Life You Are Saving May Be Your Own”, because if Lucynell did not fall asleep in the diner she too, would have been dead along with Mr. Shiftlet. Life has a funny way of putting you in the right spot in the right moment.
In this Literary Analysis I will discuss the effects that the death of Matthew Maule had on the Pyncheon family, and whether the curse is real.

Because the rope does not break his neck, he starts to strangle to death. As he gasps for breath, he gets out his last words,“ God will give him blood to drink,” then he slowly dies.

The story took place in Valley Forge during the winter, which killed a lot of men because of illness, hunger, and hypothermia. Near the end of the end of the novel Hank had found a traitor hiding within. This novel is an amazing novel and I recommend it to almost all my friends. One similarity found between these two novels is the politics. The politics of both novels were Patriots vs Tories.

Brother was cruel to Doodle. He shows this by making Doodle touch his own coffin. ‘One time I showed him his casket, telling him how we all believed he would die.’(418) Another example when Brother was cruel to Doodle was at the end of the story when Brother left Doodle in the rain. ‘The rain came, roaring through the pines. And then, like a bursting Roman candle, a gum tree ahead of us was shattered by a bolt of lightning.
The flu outbreak was caused by a plane crash containing a sample of the flu that was being transported to a lab. Hig lost his wife and child to the flu, when reading the author made it so it was easy to put yourself in Higs shoes to really see the reality of what had happened and the future of what was to come.
