However, the rejection brought against him by society destroyed his human traits leading him to murdering people. In contrast to the remorse of the monster, Victor feels only disgust when creating the monster rather than remorse. In hact he claimed that the “beauty of the dream vanished” (Shelley 61). This indicates a rather larger ideology within the story; While Victor constantly displays his disgust and hatred towards the monster, he begins to show less remorse as the story progresses.

In some aspects, Frankenstein is similar to The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. In both novels, playing God plays a key role in the storylines and has a significant impact on the characters. In Frankenstein, Victor tries to play God by creating life. However, this action winds up hurting him, since his abandoned creation seeks revenge on him for the injustice he causes in the monster's life.
