write an article on Monster Stories by Ishiguro and Shelly. It needs to be at least 1500 words.
Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Monster Stories by Ishiguro and Shelly. It needs to be at least 1500 words. The two authors’ stories are based on “monsters”, however, Ishiguro’s story is about clones who are brought up to be donors when they are young adults. On the other hand, Shelly’s story is based on Victor, who is a scientist, therefore when his mother died, he felt so sad that he decided to find ways of recreating dead bodies, and eventually he was successful.
The first significant difference is that the traditional Frankenstein story majorly focussed on the “real monster”. The real monster is the person who due to his selfish interest, decided to recreate a dead man. This despite the fact that death is evitable. While, Ishiguro’s story focuses more on the creatures, in fact, the story does not talk about the people who created the monster.
There are other several differences between these two books. however, I would like to discuss five main differences. These are secrecy, monstrosity, treatment of the clones, mimicking of the society, and dangerous knowledge.
Treatment of the clones and monster. The clones in Ishiguro’s story and the monster in Shelly’s story are treated differently, despite the fact that both of them have been created scientifically. The clones were able to mingle in society freely. this is because they had the same appearance as other normal human beings (Shelly 25). On the other hand, after Victor had created the monster, he becomes so guilty that he has recreated a human being, but he has no provisions for taking care of the monster (Ishiguro 30). Therefore, Victor runs away and seeks solace within the university while the monster goes to the countryside. It is therefore evident that the way Ishiguro has retold his story is significantly different from the original version of the story.
. . . . . . . . . . . In Shelly’s story the monster was not being taken care of, while in Ishiguro’s story, we see the monsters having a peaceful life. Shelly, also through her story has brought out the cruelty of the “real monsters”, something which we Ishiguro has not brought out (Shelly 10).
