    'All things truly wicked start from an innocence.' Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) The Creature was not born evil. Nor was his corruption his fault. He was born innocent, without fault or sin.

The Monster then turned bitter and vengeful, and hated

  • Mary Anne of Things They Carried

    Mary Anne of Things They Carried

    One of the main themes of the novel is the allure of war. This trope, common in war literature, is made more complex here as O’Brien adds the layers of a Conrad-esque “heart of darkness” fascination in the character of Mary Anne. The seductive allure of war is inextricably linked to the tendencies of human nature in O’Brien’s novel. War, more specifically the act of killing, acts as a catalyst for some individuals, causing them

    Promethian and Faustian Presences in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein A myth may be defined, however loosely, as an answer to an otherwise unanswerable question, in some cases due to the incomprehensibility of such an answer. It cannot be denied that Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818) poses a number of such unfathomable questions, largely concerning that which separates men from gods, and the point at which supposedly beneficial ambition becomes mindless and destructive obsession.
