This use of the Genesis project is brought to light when the movie’s villain, Khan, steals it, trying to use it for his own…

Your eyes dwell on a Vulcan- a real blacksmith, brown, broad-shouldered; and blind and lame into the bargain.’” (422 Brontë) Mr. Rochester’s description of St. John as a “graceful Apollo” solidifies his stance regarding his Greek descriptions. His comparison to Apollo further…
