He started to take revenge of his creator by killing the people of the town and the ones that he loved. All of this would have been different if victor would have pay attention to the monster. To have a successful invention one must have responsibility and take care of
In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, it scrutinizes the punishments when a man creates life, and plays the role of God. Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply.
In the book Frankenstein, Victor messed up and his fate was decided when he chose to abandon his creation instead of raising it like it was his own child, even if the monster was around 8 feet tall and had super human strength and speed. What could he have done differently? He could have properly learned to be a father as the monster learns about the real world. Victor could have been his guide in life and education.
DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS The role of victor is subverting the mythical norms in Frankenstein. Usually the creator is considered superior and perfect in his qualities however, in this novelette, the creator himself is flawed he fails to own his own creation. On the complete contrast, Mary Shelley portrays the Creature to be an isolated figure that spends his life desiring a companion and friendship. The Creature is so rejected by society, so abandoned by Victor and the people he come across, that he becomes filled with hatred towards everyone, particularly for the one who placed him into this terrible state in the first place – Victor.
The monster gives Victor one chance to fix their relationship, but Victor choses his life over the monsters. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged. The wretch saw me destroy the creature on whose future existence he depended for happiness, and, with a howl of devilish despair and revenge, withdrew” (Shelley 171). Victor doesn’t want to create “another like him” but he doesn’t realize that the only way the monster acts the way he does, is because Victor was never there to help him through life. Victor could help the monster by making a companion for him, but instead Victor got married to his own.
Mary Shelley, in her book, Frankenstein, has a reoccurring theme of isolation, in which she isolates the main character, Victor Frankenstein, from the rest of society in order to create a creature. Likewise, the creature that is created is also isolated from the rest of society as he is rejected from his creator as to his appearance. The theme is present throughout the novel as it reinforces Victor’s downfall from a normal boy to a grown man intrigued with creating life as he slowly becomes a madman that everyone soon fears. Isolation causes a loss of humanity as it affects the mind and body. Isolation from society does not teach social interaction, causes regret about oneself, provides one with negative feelings, and causes regretful actions.
The name “monster” was given because of his anger filled retaliation towards Victor and his family. The monster was neglected from the second he was created and nobody ever gave him a chance to learn what life was about and help guide him. Imagine all of the wrong choices you would have made with no parents telling you what was right and what was wrong? Or people not only wanting to stay as far away from you as they can but also have another group of people that want to kill you because of your physical appearance. “Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.”
Frankenstein, despite how determined and entrenched he was in his science, runs away when his monster is not aesthetically pleasing. Afterwards, he tries to sleep and wish his monster away like some bad dream. The monster actually believed Frankenstein would still help him after he murdered his beloved younger brother and continuously ruined his life. No one in their right mind would agree to assist a murderer, especially when the one they killed was someone dear.
Frankenstein initially agrees to the creation of another creature, but later goes back on his promise by saying, “Begone! I do break my promise; never will I create another like yourself, equal in deformity and wickedness” (Shelley 119). As a father figure for the creature, not fulfilling his promise was a terrible thing to
The monsters only oversight was to let the words of others around him define who he was. Through the novel, Frankenstein felt sick and asked himself why would Victor create a monster so hideous that even he would turn from disgust. (Shelly,116). Even though many would say that this was the moment when Frankenstein started to developed hatred towards Victor, this is in fact when the monster started to express some sense of vulnerability. He questions his existence and why people had this electric feeling of horror towards him.
