Love, hate, revenge, and murder. All of these themes impact the way a book can be read and will be read. Frankenstein is a novel that is full of devices that constantly make reader question the entire motive for characters. It features dynamic characters, who exhibit their humanity in the most exciting ways. They exhibit humanity, by loving each other, hating the monster, the monster murdering his creator’s friend and loved ones, and Frankenstein path to avenge the loss of his family to the monster.
Mary Shelley uses many language devices to portray conflict in the novel Frankenstein. In chapter 5, Mary Shelley uses alliteration to convey to the reader the emotional conflict the monster is forced to face. Victor finally finishes his creation and observes its appearance: “I beheld the wretch -- the miserable monster who I created”. This suggests to the reader that Victor is not pleased with his creation as he calls him a “monster”; the word “monster” makes the reader visualize a horrendous, spine-chilling, eerie creation creating a dark ambience. Furthermore, the author uses feelings to describe the monster.
The monster starts to recount the story of his life once they are inside. In this chapter, it is shown that Frankenstein still feels guilty about the murder of his brother, and the execution of Justine. It is shown that he is deeply flawed, and feels isolated. The monster is shown to be more human in this chapter, as he engages in conversation with Victor, and portrays some form of emotion. He states that he was a virtuous and worthy creature until the disdain and ignorance of humans made
As a result of Victor’s pursuit of scientific knowledge and the desire to infuse life, he created a very grotesque creature that murdered his loved ones. The very act of creating such a monster makes the deaths of those innocent people Victor's fault. Although the monster physically murdered Victor's loved ones, I easily concluded that if Victor had not been successful in his endeavour to create such a monster, then the lives of those closest to Victor would have been spared such tragic fates. As the creator, Victor is responsible for the actions of his monster. However, the creation of the monster did not have to result in such horrific acts.
These include both Macbeth and Frankenstein on the hunt to kill and destroy, Frankenstein creating evil with in a monster the Weird sisters creating an evil monster in Macbeth and his wife and both have a tragic flaw, and last but not least them both using mad science and dying in the end of both the stories, and movies. What is a tragic hero? A tragic hero is the protagonist of a tragedy. Tragic heroes appear in the dramatic works of Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Seneca,Marlowe, Shakespeare, Webster, Marston, Corneille, Racine, Goethe, Schiller, Kleist, Strindberg, and many other writers.

He and his fellow gang members are disgusted with the way Japan is heading and its developing social mores. The oral thoroughly uncovered how Mishima followed similar beliefs to Noburo to a lesser extent and how the characters intertwined with his belief. Another aspect which was lightly touched in the oral was the meaning of the title. It seems to me as if the sailor, Rjuji, is a metaphor for Japans old ways as discussed before and the sea is a metaphor for Japan. Several times during the novel, a loud boat horn is sounded.
What was I? Whence did I come? What was my destination? These questions continually recurred but I was unable to solve them.” Readers may also find it easy to sympathise with The Monster as Shelley is very critical of Frankenstein. For example, in Chapter 15 when the Monster is talking about Frankenstein’s journal that documented his creation, the Monster says ““Everything is related in them which bares reference to my accursed origin; the whole detail of that series of disgusting circumstances which produced it is set in view; the minutest description of my odious and loathsome person is given, in language which painted your own horrors and rendered mine indelible.
Throughout Frankenstein, the actions of Victor and the creature bring them together. Victor’s rejection of the creature drives the creature’s emotions. In his rejection, the creature seeks revenge on Victor. The creature causes Victor’s misery, which coerces Victor to seek revenge on the creature. Both the creature and Victor revenge on each other.
Mary Shelley, the author of The Frankenstein, provides valid points to prove that the creation of Frankenstein was a victim of circumstances verse a monster.

The day he was brought to life, he was abandoned and left for dead by this creator, for the mere fact that his appearance was not elastically pleasing. With an overwhelming desire to live, the creature of Victor
Domestic affection is the sense of belonging and love one feels when people are accepted by family and friends. Shelly believes that when people loses this affection they begin to make immoral decisions and lose their sense of humanity, and this is when they become truly monstrous. When Frankenstein is read from this perspective, the creature isn’t the only monster in the story. Robert Walton, captain of the ship, also has the potential to be monstrous, and so too do victor, the general population, and the social institutions within the world of Frankenstien. Through the actions committed in the play, Victor Frankenstein becomes one of the most monstrous characters in the story.
