Although it is possible for one to see the character of Blanche as a manipulating and vindictive individual, who has no sense of compassion or consideration for others, she is also written as an emotionally unstable woman who had suffered a tragedy in her early life, therefore be a victim It is possible that Williams based this character on his sister as she suffered from mental illness and emotional instability, therefore innately, and sympathetically portraying her as victim. There are suggestions throughout the play that Blanches’ malice is unintended, and that she truly believes ‘ deliberate cruelty is unforgivable’. For example, in scene 3, Stanley lashes out violently at Stella after heavily drinking, and it is Blanche that takes her away from him and the danger he poses, illustrating her inner compassion. The constant heavy drinking included in the play is also suggestive of blanches state as a victim. Williams included her alcoholism to create the awareness of blanches need to escape the harsh reality of life and how out of control she is.
His fickle favor toward his servants, and not to mention his family, proves his inconsistency and instability. Although appointed by the gods, his reign has exposed the abused and misused privilege of representing the gods in his earthly position. King Creon’s irrational edict stated that any man who dares to bury Polyneices would suffer death by stoning. Is it a mere human’s prerogative to determine another man’s eternal fate? Because Antigone had nothing left to live for, while knowing the sentence of stoning, Antigone defied King Creon’s edict in order to fulfill her duty.
As a result of Frankenstein's reckless ambitions, he commits acts of injustice by casting away the creature and labelling it "wretched and abhorred." The creature's melancholy speech towards Frankenstein is reflective of the suicide note written by Shelley's half sister Fanny Godwin; "The existence of a being whose birth was unfortunate" and the creature "yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me." Not only is the creature's abandonment reflective of Shelley's half sister, but also of her father William Godwin's abandonment of Shelley herself. This creates skepticism, as to who is the real monster; Frankenstein or the creature? Furthermore, Scott highlights the lack of ethical and moral responsibility of the parent in Blade Runner through Tyrell and the replicants, specifically Roy Batty.

Frankenstein upon creation reveals “now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” This allows us to understand that victor in no way feels empathy or a sense of obligation towards it.

Victor is consumed by an obsessive hatred of his creation, “I was possessed by maddening rage,” he explains. This is the turning point for the mentally human like creation. He quickly grows a negative view upon humanity.
They said it meant Able, so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength. "(Hawthorne 148) They did not recognize her for her faults but instead, her strength and courage. Chillingworth, however, became more and more twisted and evil, his deformed shoulders paralleling his distorted soul.

The composition is about two sisters 'one who falls and the other who saves'.

However as the story progresses, we see this unloving perturbed, malicious and somewhat dark side of Victor. It is firstly evident in his disgust for his creation when he says. “For this I had deprived myself of rest and health.
Victor is fundamentally selfish and his scientific pursuits are in itself the product of a desire to boast about himself. He wants men to worship him as their god. The themes of chance and fate arise once again in this chapter. Frankenstein is on the point of returning to Geneva when an incident happens to change his mind. This plot device in which an expectation is expressed, only to be dashed a moment later by a seemingly chance occurrence is a common one in the novel.
Gina replied saying that she does not know, he was furiously left the house. Ibsen used Hjalmar’s attitude and action to make Hedvig look sympathetic. He did so to create drama which ultimately will lead to the play’s tragedy. Ibsen’s technique of portraying Hedvig as a victim to gain sympathy from readers was indeed clever and unique. He portrayed her as a thirteen year old girl who is going blind due to her mother’s affair with Mr. Werle who was losing his sight as well.
