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.
Society is well-known for pushing those who are outsiders or strange away from society. This is prevalent to the examples in Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein. The monster who was created by Victor Frankenstein who wanted to be the first to create life was appalled by the sights of the his creation. Frankenstein’s monster is judged based on his appearances and is often ostracized by society, just as anyone in modern day society can be shunned or pushed away due to their looks or how they think. The most outstanding example of ostracism that occurred throughout the novel is based on the monster’s physical features and structure.
In order to further understand the person who is Victor Frankenstein, we will analyze two specific quotes in which he ponders the consequences of creating his monster. The first specific quote that shows Dr. Frankenstein pondering the consequences of his actions is when he states, “but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust fill my heart.” When Victor is initially building his creation, all he thinks of is the great science behind his work. However, he never once thinks of the consequences he may face once his creation becomes a reality.
It is wrong. Victor Frankenstein did not realize that until it was too late. That is why his creation from bad immoral science, killed everyone that he loved and that he cared about. The science of today is no different and is susceptible to the same mistakes that Victor had made. Especially in the fields of cloning, genetic modification, and synthetic biology.
Victor is terrified of his creation and that he has created something that has the potential to kill. Victor is the creator of this hideous Creature, but at this point, the Creature is the master. The Creature begins killing those closest to him, which makes Victor very sick at the thought that he indirectly was the killer. Victor was unable to stop the Creature from committing these horrible acts of violence, which proves how out of control he was in this situation. The Creature offered to leave Victor and his loved ones alone if he completed one simple task, make him a female companion.
This makes the monster feel unwanted, which is a very human response. In all efforts to reach his creator, the monster fails and to illustrate his anger, he starts his revenge by taking the lives of the relatives of Victor but also the people that fear
However, with these unbelievable discoveries that bring benefits also comes people who tend to lose their end goals and end up creating harmful things. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is a young man who yearns for scientific knowledge. Victor ends up creating a monster that he brings to life through galvanism. However, this monster later turns out to be the murderer of Victor’s brother. This sends Victor into a whirlwind of emotions and begins to blame himself when he exclaims “ I had turned loose into the world a depraved wretch whose delight was in carnage and misery; had he not murdered my brother?”.
In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, there is a message that is pervasive throughout the entire novel, and emphasized in different points in the book. This message, one that can not only relate to the novel, but modern day society, is the importance of human interaction and connection. Never getting exposure to positive human interaction, the monster is enthralled with the concept and it ends up being the sole thing he craves. He goes to vast extents to receive any contact at all with the human race; he kills innocent people, stalks a family, grabs kids in forests, and bargains his creator’s life in exchange for a companion. His actions force the reader to inquire, “What would the monster not do for just one person to communicate with?”
By breaking the law, neglecting his creation, and selfishly withholding information, Frankenstein made the already miserable existence of the monster indefensible. Even the first action Victor takes in constructing his abomination is reprehensible, by breaking the law he dooms his project from the beginning. Simply animating life was not enough for Frankenstein, he had to create a “human” but not just any ordinary human, a towering 8 foot tall beast sewed together using the stolen remains of the dead. While relating the gruesome details of his conquest to Walton, Frankenstein mentions that not only did he rob graves, but he “tortured the living animal to animate the lifeless clay”. By using the graves of the poor and the backs of tortured animals as stepping stones to reach his goal, Frankenstein makes both himself and the things he creates disgusting.
Once he completes it he then rips it apart so the monstrosity will not spread. This causes the monster to be lonely, and become angry. When Dr. Frankenstein creates life from a monstrosity of parts he abandons it in disgust that he had the nerve to give an inanimate object life.
When Society has the power to create, the creation is given the power to destroy through the choices of the men who want to gain from it. In the book, Frankenstein, society pushes and pulls at the emotions and opinions of the people who allow it to. From society telling victor what science he should be doing, to the judgement of the Creature only upon is looks and the incorrect persecution of Justine through evidence proving who killed William. The only real monster is society through its corrupted, imperiousness power over the people.
Some of the risks of ambition is that it could be a mistake for working yourself too hard or your achievement could just be your worst mistake. For example, in the book of Frankenstein victor was working to hard on his creation he was working day and night. When finally he finished and his work was done victor regretted in working on it because it didn't turn out the way he thought it would be. Also the risks of ambition is that one worlds too hard and sometimes it won't turn out the way the think it would turn out to be therefore it could be a waste of time as well.
Basic ambition is not essentially good or bad, but simply is. However, Promethean ambition, which involves a human pretending to be God. Macbeth by William Shakespeare and Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelley, significantly open up a sentiment of ideas regarding Promethean ambition. William Shakespeare introduces Macbeth as a combatant hero, who becomes king by altering God’s plan. When Victor Frankenstein is astray in his studies he isolates himself from human society.
What do you think ambition means? Personally, I think that it means to never give up. In our book, This Dark Endeavour, Victor Frankenstein never gave up on his brother or finding love with Elizabeth. No matter what happened, whether it was his dad telling him to stop, or him almost drowning, he never gave up. Victor Frankenstein was full of ambition on getting Elizabeth to love him, make Konrad better, and of course make the elixir of
