But the genius of this previously unseen work is that when it asks, ‘Why can’t this be art?’ as it surely does, the immediate response is it contains things we do not want to look at. There’s a severed bovine head on the floor of the tank and no doubt tens of thousands of black flies. There’s a half-eaten barbecue. But people do look at it.
This was abuse of controlling power demonstrated through racial segregation. This was best exhibited in the scene where a guard says ‘you’re a bunch of shit eaters’ after making Geel Piet eat some off of his boot.

In The Odyssey, by Homer, similar gluttonous instances are present which consequently produce negative outcomes. The characters are involved in all sorts of gluttonous activities such as munching on lotus plants, devouring and feasting on cattle, and gulping down wines, which impairs their senses to forth coming troubles. While gluttony is a repetitive event in The Odyssey, practically everyone who indulges in the gluttony is ultimately punished for their misdeeds.
The main theme of marry Shelly’s Frankenstein is Gothicism. Within marry Shelly’s novel Frankenstein we see elements of gothic and the supernatural, sometimes represented through the grotesque. The gothic supernatural is described as being real and disturbing according to Linda Bayer. In fact it can be described as simply being something we are used to and implementing it in the world around us making it more immediate, more believable. Within this theme we see the reoccurring element of gothic villains where “the exaggeration of just one aspect of the beautiful can produce the hideous,” (Bayer 80) in this case it is literal and can be applied to the monster where this is achieved with “combinations of the normal or even beautiful through an unexpected fusion of different realms.

Poe’s “The Black Cat” and Stockton’s “The Lady or the Tiger” both have their own rights to the Gothic fiction genre, but achieve it through mostly contrasting elements. Although they are both filled with overwrought emotion, they diverge when it comes to their atmospheres of mystery, and the roles which women play.
