I will analyze the author's title and expain the relationship between the title and the novel. I will also discuss the effect of the title on the reader. -The name "Frankenstein" is often used to refer to the monster itself. Frankenstein is a well established title because it gives a hint of the theme. In the novel, the monster is identified by words such as "creature," "monster", "fiend", "wretch", "vile insect","being", and "it", but speaking to Dr. Frankenstein, the monster refers to himself as "the Adam of your labors", and elsewhere as someone who "would have" been "your Adam", but is instead your "fallen angel."

On the other hand in Blade Runner the ethical issues of science and technologies are not only portrayed through the creation of the replicants but also by the destruction of nature and its environments. During the beginning of the movie a camera shot from above shows a dark, industrialized city filled with fiery explosions while ominous music is played in the background, the image of the city and non-dijectic sounds portray and emphasise how society has lost sight of what really matters and no longer prioritize
Tyrell: Also extraordinary things, Revel in your time. The irresponsible nature evident in Tyrell through his mere experiments and goals of prosperity was used as a caution to the audience of the time as these were highly sought after objectives of the time and were deemed hazardous by Scott.

The Obsessions of Love, Hatred and Fame Obsession comes in many forms, but it’s the obsessions with love, hatred, and fame that can make or destroy a person. Obsessions can be put to good use when used as a tool to drive a person forward to obtain a goal. But more often they become a consuming force that blinds and stifles a person’s view purpose. In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, obsession is clearly evident throughout the story with the characters Victor Frankenstein and Robert Walton. It is these obsessions of love, hate and fame that eventually destroy Frankenstein and defeats Walton.
Frankenstein and the Mariner In the poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” and the novel Frankenstein¸ there are many similarities. When the shift occurs, it changes the characters’ lives significantly. Once they have realized what they caused, they feel penitent and end up solitary and disgusted with themselves.

The Creature all the same was driven by vengeance during his time of existence.
Whether if he is naïve or whether it is his ego, Victor believes that when he does not follow the creatures demand for him to create a female monster for him, he is only putting his life in danger. For example, when the creature says he will see Victor on wedding night, he believes he is the target of the creature. He sadly finds out that it was Elizabeth who was the target when he says “I rushed towards her and embraced her with ardour, but the deadly languor and coldness of the limbs…The murderous mark of the fiend’s grasp was on her neck, and the breath had ceased to issue from her lips,” (Shelley 204). At this point near the end of the book, Victor finally realizes what the creature wants, but the creature feels the determination to make victors life miserable.
