The second reason is because he kills innocent people; this is portrayed in all versions of the story that I have seen/read so far. Pullmans play explains the murder by saying it was a revenge act against Frankenstein who in abandoning him caused him lots of emotional pain. The monster wanted to see him hurt. Most versions of the story agree with this view but brook’s version explains the murder of the child as an experiment. The monster had seen flowers can float so wanted to see if humans could float as well.
When Jack forms a new tribe, he loses his name- “Jack Merridew” to “Chief” after the responsibility and power overcomes his personality. Golding's intentions in “Lord of the Flies” were to expose the beast within every human in a form of a novel. He did this by putting a group of children on their own, and later exposing the evil that they were capable off through the characters. Golding also questions civilisation itself, against savagery. The reason he put children on the island was to show that if children were filled with the fuel to hunt and desire to kill, then what would a grown man do.
If you were to do something bad, would you rather be punished yourself or your parents be punished for your actions? In Frankenstein we see that Victor Frankenstein creates a monster out of dead bodies. He is a very intelligent man and he is intrigued by the thought of being able to create life out of raw material, or dead body parts. When Victor Frankenstein's monster comes to life, Victor abandons it and neglects it. His monster feels man and unloved so he plans out how to kill Victor's younger brother.
The Myth of Prometheus in Frankenstein Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein as a modern day version of the legend of Prometheus. Prometheus created men out of clay and taught them the "arts of civilisation" (Webster's World Encyclopedia CD-ROM 1999). Zeus, the chief god of the Titans, wanted to destroy Prometheus' creation but Prometheus stole fire from heaven to help mankind. Zeus punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock where an eagle would feed on his liver during the day and each night the liver would grow back. Prometheus was able to bargain for his release because he knew a secret which concerned Zeus' future.
The monster name wasn’t Frankenstein, the doctor’s name was. That’s why the story is called “Frankenstein’s monster.” All these literary pieces are plotted so intelligently that it takes a moment before one can distinguish the monsters and the men.

After finding Victor dead aboard Walton's ship, the monster goes further north planning to destroy himself and end the suffering that Frankenstein began when he created him.
While Heracles did not choose to possess this excessive power, it nonetheless exemplifies the maxim “nothing in excess”. Heracles is much too powerful for a mortal and as a consequence he accidentally murders many people, including all of his own children, due to the lack of control over his strength. In order to be purified of his crimes Heracles must perform ten labours for Eurystheus, the king of Mycenae at the time. Those who punish Heracles intend for him to die while performing these dangerous and presumably impossible tasks, however Heracles manages to complete each labour. After killing Iphitus, who had defended Heracles, he was sold as a slave and ordered to serve Omphale, princess of Lydia, for three years as his purification.
The Savagery of Human Nature in William Golding's Lord of the Flies One of several significant incidents in this story is when the hunting group killed the first pig. This is a significant scene because it is where the hunters of the group release the savagery that has been covered up by the fact that they were civilized. It also is a significant event because it is the first time that the group of boys ignores the priorities set by their leader, Ralph. Ralph felt that keeping a signal fire to alert passing ships of their presence was more important than finding another source of food. Having his orders disobeyed meant that he was losing power.
Johanson and his team worked were able to use the advancement of technology to calculate about how old Lucy's remains were. The second film by Johanson seemed to disturb me because it discussed how some believe that all primates are killers and it portrayed this idea in film and in television. I disagree with the idea that all primates are predators and are always hunting harmless animals and destroying things. I understand that some primates must rely on hunting as a source of survival but I believe the portrayal of primates as barbaric in the film was unnecessary. In the second film, the primates were shown destroying piles of bones and throwing large objects.
On the other hand, the story of Prometheus, the man who discovered fire and wanted to show his discovery to the other humans, but the God Zeus says no, but Prometheus does it anyways and is ultimately punished by getting his heart eaten out by an eagle for an eternity. Yet, the funny thing is that even though Prometheus is in excruciating pain, he still screams at Zeus that he would do it again. Victor and the monster from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein are both like Prometheus, and Victor ultimately rises as the hero in the novel. To begin, Dr. Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein is a modern day Prometheus.

And they yelled “crucify him", this example goes to show the position of Hobbes state of nature. Thomas Hobbes kinda makes it seem like he agree’s with civilization early on, how cavemen had to literally kill to eat and survive. No moraliity exist in hobbes eye’s because if you show morality you underestimating your oppenent. It’s quite possible that the weakest momst poorest man or citizen can kill the most strongest, richest, most succesful man or most powerful leader, there is no scale every man is created equal. It’s because of this that he beleives that government are to help keep peace, impose law and order, and the prevention of war.
