The Monster attempted to coexist with humanity, dealing with violence and abuse, only to be rejected and alone, much like how Satan is rejected by God. He is hoping that the wicked nature of the humans was not common between them all, until he meets the family which sways his opinions about the race. This fruit of hope soon turns rotten when he decides to befriend them only to be rejected again saying “from that moment on I declared everlasting war against the species” (Shelly 124) after their reaction. It was at this moment where he lost his innocence, seeing the truth that all humans are violent, only to make himself more lonely, which is seen in Paradise Lost from Satans rejection from God after they were defeated. Satan is a fallen angel,
Grendel never understood why humans could be so monstrous until he finally learned they cannot be converted. He decided to stop attempting to aid them and turn on them by killing them off. He decided not to kill Hrothgar so he can observe and finally feel pain from his wrath. Killing warriors and people slowly would be like slapping Hrothgar in the face and allow him to regret everything he has done. “Hrothgar says nothing, hoarfrost-bearded, his features cracked and crazed” (13).
Continual failure in trying to merge into society fosters his feelings of being a “wretched outcast” (111). This disables the growth of his moral integrity that is essential in humans to be able to live without fear of one another. People were afraid of the creature because he looked, and soon was a horrifying anomaly. Being constantly aware of his differences makes it harder to overcome them and feel as if he is as benevolent as he thinks he is. The “bitterness of [his] heart” (112) poisons his innocence and he commits murder, which in turn makes him the individual everyone presumes him to be: a monster.
The Herodians hated Jesus because they were afraid that he would take their fame away from them. The last and final of the main groups that hated Jesus was the Chief Priests. They hated him, because they were afraid that he would take their power.2 Now for the illegal proceedings of Jesus' trial. The problem is that Jesus was crucified when Pontius Polite declared him innocent. There are several illegalisms that we are going to look at.3 The first one that we are going to talk about is the charges placed against Jesus.
Following his many attempts to fit into the world, he realizes that he will never be accepted by humans, and vows to destroy all of mankind. Society and its mistreatment of the monster causes it to become barbaric. He states, “My protectors had departed, and had broken the only link that held me to the world” (Shelley 134). The creature speaks of how his protectors had essentially cut him off from society, which would lead him to act out against all of mankind. The incorporation of the three books also develop the creature, and may have provided him with false perceptions about human interaction and the world in general.
God also had informed them that if they decided to break this sacred rule he would punish them by death. Despite God’s word and instructions the Hebrew people totally disregarded what they were told and became corrupt by creating many other gods to worship other than their one true God. Because of their disobedience their God became angered and wanted to kill them, however, Moses pleaded with God to not kill his people (Exodus 32:7-14). When Moses came back down from the mountain he saw how out of control his people had gotten. He had also become anger and he burnt the calf, grounded it into powder, and scattered it into water and made the people drink it as part of their punishment (Exodus 32:19-20).
His choices caused him to go mad with grief, and to be filled with the need for revenge when in fact he should have realized that he only had himself to blame. One must be careful when they are making any choice in their lives because, as Shelley has shown us, any wrong choice can prove fatal. Personal choice holds no regard for human life and will cause the deaths of many, if the wrong path is
1. 147, 148). This signifies that his overconfidence has taken over him, making him believe that he can pursue anything without consequences, unlike his attitude near the beginning of the play, when he was plotting the murder of Duncan. Finally, the most striking example of this is when Macbeth is slain by Macduff, finally experiencing the consequences of his actions. It was the grief and rage that Macbeth had caused Macduff through killing his family, that caused Macduff to cut off “The usurper’s cursed head”, putting an end to his life (5.8.
The creature was miserable, and just wanted a friend or someone to talk to. On page 115, the creature said, "Hateful day when I received life! Accursed the creator. Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust." This line shows the agony the monster was in, because of how he looked when he was created which led to even Victor running away from him.
Even though others portray him as a monster we know he is still a being with feelings with needs for love and affection like he sees around him. The creature is physically repulsive because of his facial features such as his yellow skin and straight black lips. The creature is angry because it was ‘rejected’ by Victor and everyone else when he approaches them. The creature is angry because he is despised by every human being he encounters; although, by the fact that the creature is ‘fascinated’ by humans. The creature is vengeful because he had an urge to kill Elizabeth because he wanted a mate but Victor refused to create him one so he decides to kill his wife instead.
