This violent rejection is a repetition of Victor’s lack of acceptance for the monster and attention to his family. Victor knows that the monster will never be able to live within society and that his ability to create life is the only hope the monster has of achieving companionship. Victor's own aversion to companionship surfaces as he, “ fails to give him the human companionship, the Eve, the female creature, that he needs to achieve some sort of a normal life.” (Mellor). The monsters smoldering hope for friendship dies as he speaks of the injustice that is upon him, “shall each man,” cried he, “find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn.”(Shelley).
The monster depicts his otherness when he wonders: “Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned” (Shelley 85). The monster evidently remains in isolation and is dehumanized. The monster attempts to get integrated into his society but his appearance and lack of social skills hinder his success. The monster strives to be accepted but is incapable of acceptance. The monster reiterates this feeling of isolation as he says: “I felt as if I were placed under a ban- as if I had no right to claim their sympathies – as if never more might I enjoy companionship with them” (Shelley 108).
Society would never accept him as society treats outcast and people that are any 'different ' atrociously. The monster acquired books of "Paradise Lost", "Plutarch 's Lives" and "The Sorrows of Werter", which "gave him extreme delight" as he studied and exercised his mind. When he came across the DeLacey family, hope sparked inside of him as he believed he would finally be accepted by at least a small part of society. Intelligently enough the monster made his move and approached the blind old man, in which he knew wouldn 't be able to see him or judge him by his distorted appearance. He finally grasps the chance into talking to the old man, De Lacey and he acknowledges that if he fails in being accepted by them he will be "an outcast in the world for ever".
However, like Adam, he feels shunned by his creator, although he strives to be good. The reader can notice how Frankenstein displays many emotions: vengeance, love, compassion, and rejection, which a monster or animal could never have the capacity to feel or recognize. The creature can identify what pain is, by observing the cottagers, “They were not entirely happy. The young man and his companion often went apart and appeared to weep. I saw no cause for their unhappiness; but I was deeply affected by it.
Although realizing what he had just created Victor is repulsed by this new being and calls him a Monster. Victor abandons the monster and he is left to fend for himself out in the wilderness, unaware of his social identity or morals. Unfortunately, the monster frightens
His interests no longer revolve around creating new life. Instead, his concerns revolve around never having to see what the creature e so carelessly created again.The appearance based society in which the creature live in revolt in fear and disgust upon seeing him in the streets, they blame him for the cause of the plague and mob him and attempt to
Understanding Victor's creation is the demonstration on how he is, and how he acts (73). Trying to create perfection is not realistic, and he needs to lower his expectations. The work Shelley creates is to illustrate the real meaning of how there is no route to destiny because everything happens for a reason. Having a few people in life helps out a lot, but they cannot affect the future because the main character can only control their own actions. Victor Frankenstein has so much going on, but having connections with Elizabeth, Henry, and his monster makes him realize they share many traits in common.
Victor had agreed to this and postponed marrying Elizabeth for two years. He brought his friend along, but dropped him off with a different friend because he couldn’t dig up bodies with the monster and Henry looking over his shoulder. As Victor began making a companion for the monster, he decided that he could not go through with this because it isn’t safe for society and even though his current monster is peaceful, the other one may not be the same. The monster watched as Victor destroyed his future companion, and then decided to destroy anyone who was close to Victor as a means of
He wants nothing to do with the monster it frightens him so that he deserts it to fend for itself in his apartment not caring about any sort of trouble the monster can cause: “I then reflected, and the thought made me shiver, that the creature whom I had left in my apartment might still be in there, alive and walking about. I dreaded to behold this monster” (Shelly 62). Victor reveals that the thought of the monster makes him quiver in fear this shows that he has realizes the terrible mistake
The creation’s deviance leads him to have violent thoughts. Initially, the only deviant part about the creation is his looks; however, the later scene where the creation comes into contact with William tells the reader otherwise. When Victor abandons the creation, the creation becomes extremely lonely. “If, therefore, I could seize him and educate him as my companion and friend, I should not be so desolate in this peopled earth” (Shelley). The creation spots William, Victor’s brother, and he is basically kidnapping him; however, he does not understand that his deviant behavior is wrong since he has had no “parental guidance”.
