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
When Victor's creation was made he says, "'When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, the, a monster, a blot upon the earth from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?'" (105). It would not have taken much to help his creation but since he was afraid of causing problems he ended up causing a bigger
The fact that the pig went from being ‘in maternal bliss’ to ‘dim-eyed and grinning faintly’ is also terrifying, because they took something innocent and turned it into something wicked, which is essentially what happened to them. The point that tells the reader that the boys have completely lost their innocence and civility is the brutal, but accidental, murder of Simon. They let their fear warp their vision and ultimately killed their friend because of their ignorance to what the beast actually was. The flashes of lightening and chanting work the boys up
It takes a true person to look past the horror and terror of the monster Grendel. This shows that our society is quick to judge things that they are unfamiliar with. Grendel is a horrifying monster, but acts like this because that is where he comes from. He receives no love and attention from the human society in which he wants to be a part of, so his actions are taken out on that, depicting him as a savage beast. If our society wasn’t so quick to judge from the outside appearance, maybe they would see a lost, lonely creature, just craving and searching for a way to fit
His suffering over his rejection in society had fueled his angry making him hostile. Through this hostility, the creature plans to make Victor suffer as he does, thinking this would ultimately end his suffering. The creature kills many of Victor’s family and friends and stalks him, making him lose his sanity and become quite sick.
Victor waves his fist around and threatens to attack the monster, but is able to avoid Victor with his speed. The monster claimed to be a virtuous creature, until the actions of humans made him miserable. “All men hate the wretched; how then, must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things! Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us.” (Vol. II Chapter II, Page 117).
Finally his ability to tell people what they want to hear allows him to topple Ralph as chief. In the course of events Jack is responsible for the deaths of two boys. One is killed because he and his enfuriated tribe members cannot see clearly anymore. They cannot see Simon coming out from the forest, but an enemy who they think they must kill. The second murder he also allows to happen.
In life we all have something we dread. They can be troublesome and cause anxiety and as a result, we can refer to them as “monster”. These monsters we face at times are due to our own misfortune. Nevertheless these monsters affect us and not in a good way. In the epic Beowulf, the protagonist, Beowulf, faces three different monsters.
This symbolizes the loss of innocence because the death of Simon. Their paranoia of the beastie led to the death of Simon because the fear that has built up. Their rage was so strong that they weren't able to realize that the "beastie" was actually Simon, their fellow friend. In the moment "There were no words, and no movements but the tearing of teeth and claws" (Golding. Ch.
He decides yet again, “No: from that moment I declared ever-lasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him whom had formed me, and sent me forth into this insupportable misery.”(97) When the creature realizes that he will never be accepted by society because of his looks he comes up with one last plan. He asks Victor to create a “companion.” Victor's promise to do this temporarily calms the monster within the creature until Victor goes back on his promise. Upon finding this out the monster within him resurfaces and he asks, “Are
