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. Dr. Frankenstein didn’t help his creation and the monster ended up killing his bride on their wedding night.
The monster was brought into the world with a blank slate only to be thrown out to the wolves with nothing. Although the monster did commit some heinous crimes, sympathy should be shown to the monster for the shear fact that from the moment his heart started beating, he was already being pushed away by the person who brought him into this world. “Unable to endure the aspect of the being i created, I rushed out of the room and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber, unable to compose my mind to sleep” (Shelley
Victor and The Monster In Frankenstein, Dr. Victor Frankenstein is an impulsive man on a quest to create artificial life. The Monster, a being with different body parts dug up from a graveyard, is created. He has the intellect of a normal man, but he is only judged by what shows on the outside. Throughout the book, Victor is irresponsible: he fails to control the monster he created, and a string of tragedies unfolds around Victor’s family. His relatives are killed one by one.
Due to Victor 's selfishness, readers feel sorry for his creation. Frankenstein created the creature so he could manipulate the power of life, not to learn from the experience. He is so immersed in his studies, fascinated by the creation of life. He studies what the human body is made up of and how it falls apart. Victor completely disengages from the world when away at school after his mother dies of scarlet fever.
I support Coulter who refers Frankenstein as a “cautionary story of bad parenting”. The main topic in the novel is bad parenting because monster became evil due to his father attitude towards him. His father was harsh to him he rejected and hated him because of his monstrous appearance. Just like an abandoned child, Monster is affected negatively such as being lonely, inadequate parental care, love, affection and understanding. The monster explains his actions by saying that “I am malicious because I am miserable.
The Monster tried to do everything he could possibly do with other humans right, but they just didn’t accept him. The Monster new no one would accept him until the day he died so he just wanted Frankenstein to make him a wife so he would have someone just like him. So The Monster snapped and said to Clerval “He made me too well. I’m disgusting to look at”. When the Monster said this anyone would have sympathy for him and the way Pullman wrote this he made sure it did because when the Monster said that it sounded like he had a bad image of himself because he had gotten that off other people.
What did you think about Victor? To me, Victor was a stupid person. He did whatever he wanted, but he didn’t think about what will happen later in the future. The monster was created by Victor is very lonely because of Victor. He created the monster and he had the responsibility to take care of the monster.
The creature decides that Justine Moritz will suffer for the murder that he committed, thus an innocent soul was tormented and executed for a murder she did not commit (Shelley 127). Although Victor himself did not commit the murders, he felt remorseful and was in distraught and believed that he was responsible for the actions of his creation. It was the burden of knowing that his own actions caused a multitude of deaths, which led to his demise. Likewise to Lady Macbeth, Victor Frankenstein wants to confess secrets about his muderous monster to his fiancé, Elizabeth, because he wants to alleviate himself from the burden of his horrendous creation. However, when his own monster kills his beloved friend, he no longer has the ability to confide his feelings to someone.
Moreover, when he “looked around, he saw and heard of none like [himself]. Was I then a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled, and whom all men disowned” (138). Through the knowledge he acquired from spying in on the Felix family, he gained the understanding that his grotesque look doomed him to be marginalized within human society; therefore, his understanding of human history destined himself to be a monster. Although, this self-realization of a monster identity plays a huge role in the general plot and character development of Frankenstein’s Monster, it hints at a subtler interpretation of the nature of knowledge.
This adds another layer to Frankenstein's fear: the worry that he will lose the affection guaranteed to him by his family and be left with nothing confusing. [Frankenstein rejects the monster and pretends it doesn’t exist, representing an inability to cope with his fear of loneliness. It then proceeds to destroy
