Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.

People “pray to God to send charity into [their] hideous world, sympathy for the weak, and love for the unhappy and unfortunate” (Wyndham).

“ I will cause fear....do I swear inextinguishable hatred....I will work at your destruction....you shall curse the hour of your birth....fiendish rage animated him ”. (Pages 133 and 134 Lines 32-3) Between these two passages, it is seen that the creature is loving and evil at the same time.
