Spill the blood!” (174,175) Reasoning: No civil person would repeatedly state this phrase. This definitely represents savagery. It shows how bloodthirsty these boys are and then when they recite this while murdering Simon; it makes it even more gruesome. They’re so consumed in all the blood that they don’t even realize they had killed Simon until it is too late. • “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” (235) Reasoning: This quote that was stated at the end of the book shows the reader and myself that the world of savagery only leads to murder and sorrow.
I’ll plug him right between the shoulder blades.” Brown believes that Clark is being unreasonable and abusive towards his authority as brown tore his uniform while doing fatigues.

In Victors case his consequences were that the monster made him suffer. Victor felt every emotion possible from anger to devastation. “ three years before I was engaged in the same manner, and had created a fiend whose unparalleled barbarity had desolated my hear, and filled it forever with the bitterest remorse.”(120) This is Victor thinking to him self about how much is life has changed and it doesn’t seem to be for the good. Victor says that his heart is filled with remorse for even making this creature in the first place. In the end Victor is left with nothing.
This repetition of destruction shows that the creature is no longer of sound mind. The creature being alone for so long and unwanted for so long has made him become hateful to everything. The tone then makes another shift to self pity, as the creature becomes disgusted by himself. He goes back to believing he is human for just a few lines, asking the rhetorical question: “should [he] feel kindness toward [his] enemies?” Then the final shift to vengeance takes place. The creature decides “No” he will not “feel kindness toward [his] enemies,” but instead, declares everlasting war against the species,” the species being mankind and specifically his creator.

Simon Jamison or The Running man, as Joseph labels him, is seen as a mad man, someone to be “avoided” and who is eyed “with suspicion” and “distaste”. Joseph’s early memories of the running Man colour the way he sees him even in the present, as someone dangerous and to be feared. As a child, Joseph was scared by the “aimless sprinting” of this man, who looked like he was “being chased by a demon”. Joseph eventually finds out about Simon Jamison’s tragic past, where his family was burned in a fire. He is not someone chasing anyone of this world, but runs as way of dealing with the pain of his memories.
He thought of Grendel as the demon that broke the tranquility of his nation. Hrothgar was angered by Grnedel’s repulsiveness and carelessness. He knew that Grendel was the one that made his life terrible for twelve years. Unlike Beowulf, Hrothgar thought that there was no hope defeating Grendel. Grendel’s mother had a complete different view of her son.
“Calm, gentle, passionless, as he appeared, there was yet, we fear, a quiet depth of malice, hitherto latent, but active now, in this unfortunate old man, which led him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy.” (pg.139) Chillingworth has become an entirely evil man with no regard to anything other than the thoughts of vengeance. He is not the same man that he was prior to that. He is a depressed, deformed old man filled with a devilish spirit that cannot be tamed. He is an angry, bitter man until the day that he
Misery to Bitterness The Creature’s last address reveals his bitterness towards the people who shunned him, and that bitterness resulted in the wretched deeds to make his creator miserable that make him full of regret and self-loathing. The Creature was brought into a world in which no one was sympathetic to him, which brought him to abhor the human race. After he was created and abandoned by Frankenstein, the Creature was left completely alone, without a single companion and facing the rejection of the humans who instantly judged him as a monster. His loneliness and utter desertion made him so that he “could not sum up the hours and months of misery which [he] endured” (189). The loneliness he felt despite his desire for “love and fellowship” (189) with people that the “hours and months of
“ I will cause fear....do I swear inextinguishable hatred....I will work at your destruction....you shall curse the hour of your birth....fiendish rage animated him ”. (Pages 133 and 134 Lines 32-3) Between these two passages, it is seen that the creature is loving and evil at the same time. The creature was made to love and to be able to have feelings just as a human being; despite this, he ultimately chooses the path of evil instead of good. To pick a life of evil instead of good is terrible. This further shows that the wretch is a monster because a life full of revenge and evil is
