Once noted, the parallels between Frankenstein’s fears and desires and the reality the monster experiences are many. Now that Victor is in university, he no longer has family and friends to fall back upon in the unknown territory of his university. Frankenstein voices is that “[he] believed [himself] totally unfitted for the company of strangers,” irrational as it may be, and believes himself solely dependent on his family and childhood friend for companionship. Without the love guaranteed to him by his family, Victor believes he is unfit to make companions by himself and destined to a life of loneliness. He places much importance on the fact that his father and Elizabeth love him and are concerned with his well-being.
Being abandoned by his creator, the monster has no one to guide him, no one to teach him right from wrong and good from evil. When the creature is first abandoned by Victor, he’s confused and doesn’t understand that he has been abandoned. The creature explains how he felt when he woke up, “A strange multiplicity of sensations seized me, and I saw, felt, heard, and smelt at the same time; and it was indeed, a long time before I learned to distinguish between the operations of my various senses” (Shelley 99). The creature won’t fully realize the impact of being abandoned until later in the story. Victor also suffers from isolation from his
Now educated and able to speak, he feels that the family he has been watching should accept him as a friend (Shelley 114). Isolation during the making of the monsters 53 and 162 Less evident and arguably more significant is Frankenstein’s isolation due to his guilt. Frankenstein feels that he can not tell anyone about the monster he has created because of the horrible things that the monster has done. The way that Frankenstein interacts with the people closest to him shows how he withdraws from them to isolate himself after the monster is created. One example of this is conveyed when Frankenstein and his friend, Henry Clerval, go on a trip.
In the novel, Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, the two main characters, Victor Frankenstein and his creature, both display a sense of moral ambiguity. Each character has committed both good and evil alike, and neither knew the consequences of what they had done. However, Victor Frankenstein is generally the morally ambiguous character by his treatment of his creation and his own imperious personality. He wanted to be able to help science by recreating life or bringing it back, but at the same time, he did not want to consider the consequences of doing so. Victor tries to prove himself as a good moral character in the relationship between his creation and himself.
Authors create a large array of characters with different personalities and traits. Some of these characters are meant to be relatable and establish strong connections with the readers, while others are meant to do the opposite. In the novel The Asylum by John Harwood, Maynard Straker has many secrets and commits misdeeds that cause physical and mental harm to others, ultimately contradicting his position as the superintendent and chief medical officer at the Tregannon Asylum. Maynard Straker is a character whose contradictory behaviour as a medical officer leads to a weak connection with the reader because he hides his past and intentions from everyone, proving he is not as trustworthy as someone of his position should be. To begin, Straker is a secretive character whose hidden past and intentions cause the reader to believe he is suspicious because doctors are generally trusted with the lives of their patients.

Some people find it crazy to feel sympathetic for someone they do not know, let alone someone who is not human.

The Creature is given life and eventually becomes responsible for the death of a few characters, but rather receive sympathy for his actions because he’s experienced a bad childhood, being all alone and only having the desire to be accepted.

Victor is unable to completely sympathize with the creature due to his ugly nature. While the creature attempts to plea for compassion and kindness, Victor reverts to his instinct and shuts down the creature’s request.
