While the groom is looking for the creature, he gets to Elizabeth, the bride, leaving her “lifeless and inanimate”. When looking upon the crime scene, Victor sees the murderer: “A grin was on the face of the monster; he seemed to jeer, as with his fiendish finder he pointed to the corpse of my wife” (Shelley 174). This evil act is directly caused by the creator’s rash decision to destroy the female and ruin his monster’s life once again. Many people agree that it is “Victor’s inability to see the monster’s own value and not his concern for the world that leads him to leave his “Adam” without a mate. This, of course, drives the monster to kill again” (Lunsford 175).
Technology has the power to completely enslave and or free mankind kind depending on how one uses it. throughout the chapter the effects on humanity through technology steadily increases. One my think that the author might be trying to show us through the story how technology can be evil. Huxley portrays technology very negatively because how the D.H.C. uses technology to
In this mission he encountered Victor Frankenstein, an extremely weak and moribund man. Victor soon explains to Walton his treacherous journey to find and exterminate his “monstrous” creation. Most people who read “Frankenstein” have the same perception of the characters involved in the novel. This perception usually has to do with Victor Frankenstein being a victim of his so-called “monster”, in other words his creation. This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance.

Introduction Warn us of the consequences of overstepping our boundaries and unbridled technological advancement. Subsequently, it becomes evident that despite their temporal and contextual differences, both texts are in fact linked through their common concerns and concepts. The story is partially based on Giovanni Aldini's electrical experiments on dead animals and was also a warning against the expansion of modern humans in the Industrial Revolution. Although written in different times, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Bladerunner by Ridley Scott both address similar concerns about the consequences of unrestrained technological abuse, relentless consumerism and their threat to the natural world as man exerts power to alter the natural
However the monster was brought into the world, isolated, unwanted and discarded; he deserved sympathy not cruelty. Modern day Frankenstein’s can be seen as people who play God, by making or taking away defenceless creatures lives. For example Cloning is creating another creature exactly like another; this is a type of modern day Frankenstein as the creatures know that the creature is going to have many health problems throughout its life. Terrorists can also be seen as modern day
It’s the way you are brought up that affects the outcome of the person. This part of the novel links to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, because Jekyll tries to play God in his novel when he creates another side to himself, although he doesn’t actually create another person he does make himself become a completely new person after taking a medicine. He shows the evil side of himself, but by choice. This causes many tragedy’s as does the monster, they both cause murders and
The first thing that pops into your head when I say Frankenstein, is this grotesque monster that was created with body parts from the dead with bolts sticking out his neck, but after reading this classic masterpiece by Mary Shelley I found out the true story behind Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein was actually the scientist that created the monster, but because Victor and the monster are really one in the same person it makes it very simple for the monster to take on the last name of Victor. The Monster can be seen to mirror and to parallel the life of his creator, where their fates are horrifically intertwined. As the novel unfolds, the Monster and Frankenstein can be viewed as more similar than different in their emotions, actions, and desire for knowledge.
George Orwell’s book 1984 written in 1949 is not only a great piece of literature, but it also serves as a warning to us. Orwell is warning us about the drastic effects science and technology can have on us if they get into power hungry hands. He wrote the book as a warning but it has become somewhat true in our society. Orwell warns us about the three vital things totalitarian government and our world uses to control people. The three things Big Brother’s government and our own government use are controlling people physically by watching them, controlling their emotions by redefining relationships and controlling them psychology by making them fearful.
Technology Drugs, sex, and alcohols are the big no-no in our society. They say that it’ll sabotage one’s future, but what about the daily utensils we’re using every day? Every one of us uses technology every day, every second of our life; yet we don’t know the harm it brings to our society.
