The first two characters that share similar qualities are Judge Pyncheon from The House of Seven Gables, and Mable’s uncle, Cap from The Pathfinder. Judge Pyncheon was the owner of the House, and simply called, “the Judge. He is the novel’s most visible antagonist, and is a living example of the cruelty and ambition that brought the Pyncheon family such misfortune. The most important feature he had, was his deceiving smile, which gave the reader a better understanding of how his personality was. The judge wanted everyone to think he was so innocent, but in fact, he was overwhelmingly selfish.
The Monsters of Frankenstein, Bladerunner, and Star Trek The Next Generation In the long HISTORY of the existence of fantasy literature, writers represent monsters as something opposite to the human being. The prior conflict of this genre is usually "man Vs monster." Several examples of science fiction seemingly portray antagonistic creatures yet they are depicted as being similar to humanity: the replicants in the film Bladerunner; the monster in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; and the Borg in Star Trek. In each of these examples, the aforementioned "monster(s)" posses human-like characteristics (some, like the replicants in Bladerunner appear almost exactly human) yet are still "monsters," they are not quite human. Thus each of the human societies shuns and despises these creatures for what they are.
“Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind has sinned against me?” As a creator, Victor Frankenstein abandons his creature, and neglects him in ways a creator shouldn’t. This shapes his identity and shows that he is in fact monstrous in the way he acts towards the creature. He quotes in the book “He showed unparalleled malignity and selfishness in evil”; this is quiet an ironic quote Mary Shelley has used, as Victor is in fact the evil and egotistical being between the two. The use of emotive language as the Creature tells his story, allows the reader to feel sympathy for the creature. We begin to realize the true identity of the creature, and how it is more humane then humanity itself.
A good person usually has a mean streak, that is not dominant, but undeniably there. A bad person has a good side but that side also doesn’t show. In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, there are many examples of good and bad characters. A good character is Atticus Finch for example. Examples of bad characters in the story are Bob Ewell and Nathan Radley, evidenced by Calpurnia saying that he is “the meanest man ever God blew breath into.”
I would have chosen to do this crime and I should be held responsible. The Traditional View of Human Nature is similar to the romantic view regarding good vs. evil except it’s not fashionable but more widely-held. The vision of Dr. Jekyll was to create a race of angels (human beings) with a desire to only do good. According to the reading his experiment failed and the small spot in his soul grew and grew until he was completely possessed. Jekyll was pure evil and in return became the infamous Mr. Hyde.
Mitch’s kind character is also contrasted with the harsh character of Stanley. As the play progresses Stanley’s character becomes more transparent and we see what he is capable of in scene 10. Stanley is churlish and lacks wealth; he lacks moral values and takes the law into his own hands. Williams portrays Stanley like a beast, Blanche thinks of him “like an animal”. Williams also highlights his violent manner by stage directions, how Blanche has frightened look appears in her face and that Stanley says “STELLL-AHHHHH!” with heaven-splitting
Sir Andrew fits this description perfectly therefore he is the real fool in twelfth night. His name (“Aguecheek”) itself implies he is a character that shouldn’t be taken seriously by the audience. Aguecheek means pale face which shows he is a vile character. He is constantly being manipulated by Toby, is very slow witted and lacks wisdom. All of these things make him a very comical character enjoyed by the audience during Shakespearian times and in the present day.
In short, Hamlet is the original “emo kid.” Think about it: He’s self-hating, pessimistic about life in general, dresses all in black, and pontificates about suicide. He’s not the most complex character in literature, as so many insist. He’s the most angst-ridden, hormonal, and impulsive teenager in literature! When it comes to Hamlet, one plot aspect that everyone is familiar with is the eponymous character’s obsession with killing his uncle and avenging his father’s death. However, the only thing that Hamlet actually does is make life more difficult for those around him.
The head visits Simon while he’s alone and tells him that there is evil in everyone. Since the evil is in everyone, it tells Simon that there is no way to escape it and that it will have fun with Simon which seems to pan out to be true being that Simon dies in the next chapter. While talking to Simon the sows head says it is the “lord of the flies” which means Beelzebub the name of an evil demon in the bible. The sow’s head itself may not have a lot of power but it’s the fact that there is a bit of that evil everyone and what someone could do with that evil, is the power. The conch shell is not exactly the light of the book or the heavenly symbol but more of a symbol of civilization.
The creature is called “monster” in the book because people perceive his looks are a monster. When the creature finally sees himself he says, “ I had admired the perfect forms of my cottagers- their grace, beauty, and delicate complexions; but how was I terrified when I viewed myself in a transparent pool” (Shelly 94). The creature knows that he looks like a monster and gets rejected by everyone. It makes him even more angry because he is not a monster, he just wants a friend. 2.
