    When I heard that we were going to a monster truck derby, I didn’t know what to think. We got tickets from entering this raffle, and the tickets had the name of a famous monster truck derby on it. A monster truck derby would be cool, but I didn’t want to sit in one spot for three hours. And the drive would be long as well. The traffic was going to be horrible since it was a big monster truck derby and we already lived two hours away. I decided that I would go anyways. I charged my phone so I had some entertainment and ate so I didn’t get hungry. After the long drive, we got out of the car and I saw this big arena. My dad said, “Isn’t this cool?” “Yeah,” I said, “this is cool.” Jackson looked like he was having the time of his life. We went…

    The idea of monsters have played a role in society since the beginning of civilization. In the novel Grendel, I believe Grendel is useful for the humans in the novel. As the dragon said in chapter() Grendel is the monster that makes the human think, plot, and become smarter. Grendel provides the fear that makes the human evolve, by stimulating them to change or adapt. It would be hard to say whether the world would be better with or without Grendel. Humans can be monsters themselves, they do…

    MONSTERS AT WORK is a comedy that brings together some of the most famous icons in film history, such as the werewolf, Frankenstein’s Monster, and The Count (vampire). The idea of real-life monsters living among humans is a fun and enjoyable concept. The story conveys how even monsters have to struggle for a living and have personal issues. The story is also driven by the themes of tolerance and acceptance. Not everyone in this make-believe world accepts the monsters. This is certainly a nice…

    The word monster usually makes one conjure up thoughts of creatures brought up from the foul depths of hell. Their look can make anyone run away in fear of their life. But these are not the thoughts we have for the beasts in The Island of Dr Moreau, although they are the ones called monsters. What truly makes a monster? They way they look, or the way they act? Although they match the image (in Prendick’s eyes), their thoughts and actions betray this thought. But monsters are still on the island,…

    In “Embodying the Monster,” Margrit Shildrick defines the word “monster” using the different representations present throughout human history. The dilemma of concern is how humans identify monsters, as well as what these definitions reveal about humans themselves. Humans have repeatedly developed binaries in order to separate the human from the nonhuman. However, monsters blur these binaries. As stated by Shildrick, “And yet time and again the monstrous cannot be confined to the place of the…

    By degrading the struggles of these refugees, the natives are creating in monsters that breed more trouble and evil. As Cohen illustrates in “Monster Theory”, “They [monsters] ask us to reevaluate our cultural assumptions about race, gender, sexuality, our perception of difference, our tolerance towards its expression.” (Cohen). The monsters created by the native citizens stem from the cultural assumptions they form about refugees. Citizens have assumptions and refuse to reevaluate how they…
