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,
Once Grendel lost faith in humans, he was forced to kill as he was disappointed and disgusted by their actions. With the lies of the Shaper, their murderous ways, and flawed beliefs, he has turned too far away from goodness and believed the only way to fulfill his life is to kill the ones who confuse him. This showed the complexity of Grendel as in Beowulf, the attacks by Grendel were seen as pointless acts of violence and evil when in reality the humans had pushed him to this point. One main reason for his violence was his constant fight with his belief of human religion. He was constantly questioning why God made him an evil creature and tested humans and their belief through violence.
Laertes is so angry that he is easily manipulated, making his judgement impaired by not realizing the dreadful consequence of poisoned sword. On seeing crazy Ophelia and then hearing her death, he loses control of his emotions completely and en... ... middle of paper ... ...le scenario and detail that could be remotely related to his situation. The most pronounced evidence is that Laertes proclaims that he would go so far as “To cut his throat i’the church” to seek revenge against Hamlet. Laertes does not mind committing murder in a church, where violence is not condoned. It is even more noticeable when comparing a scene in which Hamlet hears Claudius confess in a prayer to his sins.
After witnessing the horrors of war Owen believes religion to be “rubbish” with no use to it. All it has done is be complicit with the ruling elite in stoking the fires of war. Anthem for Doomed Youth pushes this point on by juxtaposing the symbols which accompany Christianity like “passing-bells”, “orisons” and “candles”, with the images of the slaughter house, “die as cattle.” This shocks the reader with the horror of war showing how religion means nothing in the face of war. It does nothing to help and a blaming critical tone of it can be seen. Owen had been a lay assistant to a vicar shortly before the war teaching Bible classes and leading prayer meetings.
He died miserable because of his pride; one could say he is selfish because when creating the creature he did not think of the benefit of others. Victor Frankenstein serves as an instrument of suffering of others and contributes to the tragic vision as a whole in this novel. He hurts those surrounding him by his selfish character and his own creation plots against his master due to the lack of happiness and love. The audience should learn from Frankenstein’s tragic life and character to always remain humble. We should never try to take superiority that is not granted to us because like victor we shall suffer and perish.
Eve wi... ... middle of paper ... ... his angelical form to trick individuals into believing him and his ideals. However, he is a lie, and so is his beauty. A lie that will condemn the relationship of man and God. Satan is tormented by the spite and revenge he feels towards God. His ambition is driven by the destruction of humankind and faith.
The reader’s distaste for Satan is strengthened by Satan’s shift in motives. The conquering of humans, which he originally presented as a rebellion against God and his authoritative rule, later came to be about pure corruption and hate. It’s therefore possible to say that if Satan had never given up on his original reasoning, he would still be the hero of Paradise Lost.

From the moment Mr. McEachern picks up Joe Christmas from the foster home he stresses the importance of religion to Joe. While introducing himself, Mr. McEachern explains to Joe, “…I will have you learn soon that the two abominations are sloth and idle thinking, the... ... middle of paper ... ...forced upon them. There are other types of religious extremists, like Doc Hines, who see those who do not share their faith as enemies and believe that they are a curse of God and therefore, should be eliminated through killing. These ideologies, even though seen in our world today, cannot be the definitions of faith and religion. In fact, the violence created through them defies the very basic beliefs associated with most world religions.
Curiosity enabled Satan to tempt Adam and Eve to turn away from God. It becomes evident that both characters experience a lack of acceptance, which leads them to reject their own creators breaking one of the most critical bonds of any being.
In actuality Claudius was confessing his repentance to God without asking for forgiveness. At this moment, Hamlet's religious beliefs intervene to complicate his view of revenge in a peculiarly diabolical manner “A villain kills my father, and for that I sole son, do this same villain send to heaven” (Hamlet III; iii; 76-78). He has to ensure the way of Claudius’s death is not just the destruction of his body, but also the damnation of his soul, which is why he... ... middle of paper ... ... for his fathers death in the elimination of Claudius, and the ultimate escape from his own pain in reality. Hamlet’s fascination with death grows and he no longer considers his actions, wanting solely to complete his vengeance, and pays need to what alternatives circumstances his actions may bring. Hamlet is introduced as a reflective and distinctive youth, who is the only character that fights back against Claudius’s usurpation of the throne and accepts the consequences of his death without a flinch at the end of the play.
