David Guhl Mrs. Volz British Lit. 5 September 2012 Who is the real monster? There is child abuse going on all around the world, and the kids have done nothing to deserve it.

Victor had no reason to put his creation though such pain he just did it through pure selfishness.
In this quote, it’s referring to all Nazis. This is a let down for Anton because he knows how much the towns people despise him German soldiers. Another example , “God is on America’s side and anybody who’s against us is on the devil’s side” (55). Anton is referred to the “devil’s side” because he’s a Nazis. He has an external conflict with the people in Jenkinsville because everyone there hates the Nazis.
This creates conflict between the monster and Victor as the monster soon begins to hate him for abandoning him. Furthermore, in chapter 16 we see conflict between the creator and the created again: “you belong to my enemy—to him I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim”. The monster’s anger towards his creator is channelled into revenge as he kills his brother. Shelley uses the language device direct address to depict this. The pronoun “you” is repeated, this makes the reader
The Two Monsters of Frankenstein The main ingredients in creating a monster, in Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, are obsession, selfishness, and doomed loneliness. Shelley creates not one but two monsters in the novel. Shelley shows Victor as the selfish and obsessed monster that created a living creature dooming it to forever loneliness. Shelley's other monster is the creature that Victor made that is rejected by everybody due to his ugliness. Victor is a monster by selfishly remaining quiet about the creature as more and more lives are taken.
The madness resulting from the incident was the way in which the soldiers handled this. They make jokes about Ted Lavender’s death, and act as if it was in a movie, separated from reality. Next, they burn down a town and kill all the animals still in it. While seeing something like this on the news would be disturbing, through the context of the author’s perspective we can understand why they do this. They are all afraid of dying in shame, as noted when Tim O’Brien says “They carried the soldier's greatest fear, which was the fear of blushing.
The book is the start of the monster’s abhorrence to man, as the monster thinks that he cannot fit in with people because he does not own any property and does not know he was born. So, the monster begins to believe that he is an outcast. I would replace this book with The Ugly Duckling. Ruins of Empires causes the monster to lose self-esteem. The Ugly Duckling is well renowned for creation of self-esteem in children.
Who's to hinder, I wonder?" And Legree clenched his fist, and shook it, as if he had something in his hands that he could rend in pieces. (40.6) 463| Simon Legree’s malicious hatred of Tom is utterly evil – and utterly unrestrained. No law, no person, no religion will stand in his way if he wants to vent his psychopathic fury on an innocent man. This is the moment at which Stowe wants every 19th century reader to realize the full horror of slavery.
The American Revolution began in 1775 and ended in 1781. The war was between England and the American colonies. The colonies started rioting against England because of the unfair taxes that England was enforcing on the colonies. The colonies were trying to preserve their natural rights that England was taking away from them. The colonies had a radical reaction towards England after England taxed, used military action against the colonies, and the American colonies wanted their own government.
He is trying to avoid the sense of guilt, if anything goes wrong, and the couple had children, because he is responsible for Frankenstein, because he is the creator. Victor has every reason to feel guilty and to have bad conscience, because he is the one who created Frankenstein, and therefore is responsible for the murder of his family, best friend and his wife. These feelings appear in the text: ‘For this I had deprived myself of rest and health.’ And ‘…horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect to the being I had created.’ Because he had created a monster he feels terrible, and he is afraid of him. Which you also can see in the last part of the story: ‘…My teeth chattered...
The decisions the creature makes out of his suffering, or his characterization, show that one may not overcome suffering. The creature is also turned away without being taught a thing and suffers from the confusion over the world. The conflicts with Victor continue on multiple occasions in Frankenstein. Once the creature learns that it is his appearance that causes people to flee and reject him, he despises himself, but even more Victor.
