Even if that means he has to ask a stranger or a friend to finish the job for him. In the quote he claims not to be selfish, even though all he cares about is killing his creation to make himself feel better. Since these are Frankenstein 's last wishes, it foreshadows his death and makes it so he won 't be the one to kill the creature. This quote also tells us that even in his delirious state Victor is still enraged with the creature, which means that he will not die in peace, but disturbed and unfulfilled. The creature becomes defensive.
However, this dream turns into a nightmare as the “man” he created turns into a monster. His goals change after Frankenstein is created and he ultimately just wants to live a normal life. He wants to marry and move past his scientific experiments. He refuses to create another beast to be the female companion of Frankenstein.

The creature believes that because he is treated like a monster he must now act like one. Moments like Victor leaving the room after he brought the creature to life are memories that kept going in the creature’s mind. The creature that Frankenstein created killed his own brother after the creature was kicked out of the cottage. The creature stated “Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy-to him towards I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim”(126).

Determining who the monster is in the novel Frankenstein is a question that could be based on a variety of levels. There is one character that does embody horror and monstrosity in the novel that shows he is the true monster. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster, because he obtained knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him, leading to his destruction. In chapter two of the novel, Victor has a desire and passion to obtain knowledge. Not just any knowledge, but he stated, “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn,” and goes on to say that the, “inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man
It might have been uncustomary to grieve that period, but Frankenstein’s misery overtakes his will not to grieve. Furthermore, when Frankenstein meets his monster while journeying, the ghoul states that despite the hatred between them, “’I ought to be thy Adam’” (73). This is a biblical allusion to the story of the world creation, and the story of Adam and Eve. Adam was the direct product of God. He was tempted to taste the knowledge fruits, but eventually averted his will.
In Frankenstein Mary Shelley uses the hideous looks of the monster along with the average looks of Victor to show her readers that monstrosity comes from within. In The Picture of Dorian Gray Oscar Wilde uses the beauty of Dorian to communicate appearance is meaningless when it comes to monstrosity. Mary Shelley utilizes the actions of Victor and the creation to equally judge monstrosity rather than have the appearance of one cloud it. In the book when the creation discovers that victor abandoned him because of his appearance he realizes that he will never be loved. After the monster’s failed attempt at making friends with the people in the cottage he becomes vengeful.
He calls on the “spirits of the dead” and “wandering ministers” so that the “cursed and hellish monster drink deep of agony” and feel “the despair that now torments me”(179). The monster is also capable of wanton destruction when he burns down the DeLaceys’ house and dances “with fury around the devoted cottage”(123) like a savage. Finally, the monster seems to enjoy the pain he causes Frankenstein: “your sufferings will satisfy my everlasting hatred” (181) he writes to Victor. Were these pieces of evidence taken out of context, the reader would surely side with Frankenstein. But Shelley prevents such one-sidedness by letting the monster tell his version of the story.
