The Misfit’s lack of psychological help contributes to the decay of his morality because with an unstable mind he is unable to grasp moral values whatsoever. In addition, the Misfit expresses himself strictly through violence. During the conversation between the Grandmother and the Misfit, he states that ‘“[t]hen it’s nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left the best way you can—by killing somebody or burning down his house or doing some other meanness to him. No pleasure but meanness.”’ (O’Connor 27). Since the Misfit had to suffer through the cruelty of his punishments, he no longer believes in conventional morals and sees that the only
Miguel was just like his father, Pedro, as both were self centered and didn’t care or show any regard for others as they frightened and destroyed the city and collected women as nothing more than mere objects. But Pedro was a more prominent depiction of the Übermensch as he acts from a very prudent, mental state. After his father’s death, Pedro uses what has happened to him as a way of punishing Comala. Pedro is very ruthless and can assert any type of unjustified action without feeling pain. He is ruthless and he murders those who come... ... middle of paper ... ...m to hate the world and soon make the Media Luna into a desert.
To answer this question one must look at his basic character traits. Grendel is an unloving creature, he enjoys killing and torturing humans, and when he shows any sort of mercy, he later regrets it. Due to these facts it is impossible to label him as “good”. Grendel does not love, at least not in the way humans do. One could make the argument that he loves Wealthlow, but all signs point to the fact that this is just mere infatuation.
The creature describes how he was harassed “until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons”(74). The creature is rejected by everyone he encounters, his wretched appearance sentencing him to be an outcast. The monster is also a scapegoat since he is hated by all and rejected because everyone believes the monster is devilish and incapable of benevolent deeds. The humans the creature encounter all attack him due to their prejudice and belief that he will harm them; the monster thus is forced to suffer for things he never did or planned to do. Furthermore, the creature does everything in his power to make Victor miserable, making him the villain of the tale.
Despite their similar circumstances, the monster and Pinkie have differing feelings about companionship and express different levels of guilt, attitudes which reveal that the monster is more pitiable than Pinkie. Tragic family backgrounds propel the monster and Pinkie toward their future evil actions. Because the monster was created from human corpses, his creator views him with disgust. The monster’s deformities “forever barred” him from experiencing the sensations a normal man would enjoy (Shelley 217). This isolation renders the monster incapable of developing proper relationships with man, leaving the monster “miserable” (144).
It did not want anything bad, but it wanted a simply attention and support. Nevertheless, his appearance disgusted people and everybody tried to hurt him. The creature could not understand why it was treated so cruelly and suffered so much. It was completely isolated and nobody cared for this living being who wanted to be loved so desperately. Because of suffering, it turned the creature into a real monster and the revengeful murderer of little William.
Although the monster is justified in showing anger towards Victor, his killings of Victor’s friends and family is overly brutal. Years of neglect by Victor, which leave the monster fatherless as he grows up, drive him into a vindictive rage, or according to the monster, an "uncontrollable passion". Instead of going after Victor directly and immediately, however, the monster acts to complete what he calls a "demoniacal design". He carries out this plan by methodically killing Victor’s friends and family. This he... ... middle of paper ... ...tradictory ways to them, the monster certainly is deserved of his title as "monster".
Gerald is in the middle of the family because while he is pleased that the Inspector was a fraud, he never says that what he did was right but also never admits to doing any wrong. I think the message that Priestly was trying to put across is that our actions affect other people as well as ourselves and that with power comes responsibility which is something that all of the characters forgot. He also wanted the audience to be aware of the definite social hierarchy. I would show this by the Inspector wearing cheap and untidy clothes, when compared to the Birlings'. As director, I would make sure there was a great sense of irony but not let it get lost in the audience.
“It was not because I disliked Mr. Heathcliff, but because Mr. Heathcliff dislikes me; and is a most diabolical man, delighting to wrong and ruin those he hates, if they give him the slightest opportunity”(146). More characters compare him to the devil, because he isn’t a devout Christian. This shows how society influenced Heathcliff to become the vengeful man that he is. Heathcliff’s actions are easily not proper in the view of society. His relationship with Catherine is confusing.
It is never Lennie’s fault. Slim and George also converse about Lennie’s faultless nature when they say, “’He ain’t mean,’ said Slim. ‘I can see Lenne ain’t a bit mean.’/’’Course he ain’t mean. But he gets in trouble alla time because he’s so…dumb’” (41). The murder of Curley’s wife is just another instance of Lennie’s stupidity getting the better of him.
