This paper examines three stories and compares the different relationships existing between John Milton's God and Satan from "Paradise Lost", Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and his monster, and Joseph Conrad's Marlow and Kurtz from "Heart of Darkness". The paper shows how the reader is able to compare the concept of having a God complex versus having knowledge - two of the three books do not mention a God and the third one does thus making it easier to separate them out and compare the underlying theme.
From the Paper:"Frankenstein himself has a bit of a God complex when he creates the monster and believes he will be able to control him. When he created the monster he had visions of being able to control the monsters every move and action. He believed he was powerful enough mentally to overcome any obstacles that the monster may present once he was created.
"In each of these stories the clear cut examples of trying to play God are easy to locate because the story is not complicated with a real God, however in Paradise lost this is not the case. In Paradise lost the events are totally out of context but because there is a God based theme to the story it almost sits in judgment of the other two."
