Being either humane or monstrous shapes a person or things identity and often the degree of monstrosity can become disruptive. Throughout Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein the theme monstrosity vs. humanity is constant. The creature is referred to as a monster but the novel begins to reveal the identity of Victor Frankenstein, making him the true monster. The whole of humanity becomes monstrous in the eyes of its readers; a humanity that can’t see past its prejudices is evident throughout the book. “Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind has sinned against me?” As a creator, Victor Frankenstein abandons his creature, and neglects him in ways a creator shouldn’t.
This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance. With extensive analysis of the novel I have encountered with sufficient evidence that led me into thinking otherwise. Such evidence will be presented throughout this essay. Victor Frankenstein, we may say that actually is the incarnation of all human evilness and misdeeds while the so-called "monster” is merely a victim of Victor's mad, selfish, and egocentric state of mind. First of all, I am going to state how Victor resembles more of a monster than the creation itself.
One of the most evident themes in the novel would be loss of innocence. It is constant throughout the book that the innocence of the boys is quickly being destroyed. The books obvious context of civilization versus savaging is essential to show where the innocence is lost. But because civilization is lacking, the boys become cruel and barbaric and even kill each other. The loss of innocence is evident in most characters of The Lord of The Flies.
After she is murdered, Susie is stuck in the “in- between”, not quite alive on earth, but not free in Heaven. In the “in between” there is all the other girls that Mr. Harvey has raped and murdered as well. Some of the actors in this movie include Saoirse Ronan as Susie Salmon, and Stanley Tucci as George Harvey. The most interesting character to me in this movie would have to be Mr. Harvey played by Stanley Tucci. Tucci is incredibly creepy, weird, and awkward as Mr. Harvey and his interactions with people are some of the best parts of the movie.
Frankenstein's Monster: Villain or Victim? "Am I to be thought the only criminal, when all human kind sinned against me?" (Shelly 165) - Frankenstein's Monster Upon reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, it is all too easy to come to the conclusion that the creature Dr. Victor Frankenstein creates is a "vile insect" (68) that should be "overwhelm [ed] with... furious detestation and contempt" (68). But is this really accurate? Is this "monster" truly the "wretched devil" (68) Victor believes him to be?
For the Salmon family, the death of their daughter Susie is a tremendous task to try and cope with because of how she died. First by being trapped in an underground room, than raped against her will, and finally having her body cut up into sections of limbs and blocks of un-living
She kept it a secret that she had male genitalia and was murdered by four men when they found out. These four men suffer from transphobia, which is the fear of a transgender individual. The movie shows the murder trials and the life Gwen lived of constantly being ridiculed and picked on for expressing who she was. Not only did Gwen’s fellow classmates, family and other individuals in society have a problem with how she expressed herself, but she often felt as though there was something wrong with her. These are direct quotes in the movie between Gwen and her mother: Gwen/ Eddie: I hate my life mom, I hate it every single day!

Captain Ahab’s uncontrollable compulsion and desire to hunt and kill Moby-Dick can be seen as an extreme obsession, in which, only the most sinister acts can appease.
