Blocked by his ego, the Doctor does not take action to stop the rampage, and his family pays for his mistake. Both Victor and Frankenstein seem to be completely unrelated and dissimilar, but the two foes have a lot in common. They are both antagonists, and have varying degrees of evil. In some respects, they complete each other. The vivid similarities between Victor and the Monster are driven by their secluded, isolated standing in the world, by isolation from their family, by mutual hatred, and by the absence of motherly figures in both Victor’s and the Monster’s lives.
As stated earlier, Frankenstein and his monster are not completely alike. For example, Frankenstein wanted to play God. He wanted to breach the boundaries of life and death. The monster did not care about anything like that. All he wanted was companionship and someone to love that would love him back.
The creature has the ability to speak in his own defense, but is not given the chance. He is not accepted as a human and therefore is not given the right to defend himself. The creature also points out that while Victor has labeled him a murderer, Victor does not see a crime in killing the creature. The creature’s rejection in the novel is due to the nature of his being.
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.
Many people think he only wants to haunt his creator and make him suffer. However, the creature is only a product of terrible circumstances. The creature’s creator, Victor, obsessed over science and still struck with grief over his mother 's death, wanted to give life to the dead. However, his obsession clouded his thoughts, leading him to overlook the possible scenarios he could find himself in.
When Victor gave the monster life, he became a godly figure to the monster, a creator of life. The monster learned of his creator’s humanity and became the physical embodiments of man’s sins; greed, envy, anger, lust, and pride. In the beginnning of the novel the monster was like an innocent child, but as the novel progressed, the monster mentally transitioned into manhood and adopted many of man’s sins without a God-like Victor to guide him.
However, Victors reckless and unthoughtful actions pushes the monster into a state of rage and hatred that overrides his ability to stop from exacting revenge on Victor. Victor initially creates the monster thinking that it will be an amazing creature, built from the best human body parts Victor could procure. After he views the outcome of his work he is repulsed by it and abandons it, hoping that it would cease to exist. Not only did the monster survive, but it learned to speak, write, and read. After reading the book Paradise Lost, the monster thinks of its own situation and states the following:
Given these points, Frankenstein provides an ideal escape for ambition. The desire causes many feelings for the characters and they do outrageous things to achieve it. The examples are Victor studying, which causes him to become blind and create the monster, Walton wants a friend to express himself, and the monster also wants a friend and wants to fit in without being judged for his appearance. Ambition is the best way to provide the characters to have aspiration to prior the story of
Those causing the mistreatments were acting in fear. In the novel, Victor Frankenstein allows this fear to spread across the town and terrorize people. His concern was not on what may happen if things did not go the way he planned them. He was selfish in his eagerness to achieve something that was not accessible to mankind. In the novel, Victor states, “ His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful.
Ambition is what drives one to achieve their goal; this can ultimately cause a result that is beneficial or disastrous. In Mary Shelly’s, Frankenstein, it is Victor’s stubborn mindset that drives him insane to the point where he eventually lands himself in his grave. It originally starts when Victor becomes ambitious to search for knowledge so that he could go against nature and create a manmade creature to attain fame. The fact that Victor did not think of the consequences leads him to suffer the aftermath.
Frankenstein 's monster, from the story Frankenstein, is an example of a byronic hero. A byronic hero is usually a loner who might be rejected by society, have a troubled past, self-destructive, and usually misunderstood. Frankenstein 's monster is an excellent example of this, as he starts the story being brought to life through impossible ways (Shelley 42). Almost immediately, his creator despises him and eventually abandons him, giving him the rejected aspect of a byronic hero. As the monster progresses in the story, he eventually begins trying to befriend multiple people, just by knocking on their cabins only to be attacked by them and chased away (Shelley 78).
This is reinforced by the rhetorical question that serves to convince Walton that the Monster hated having to turn to violence. In both situations, a friendly and accepting hand could have led both monsters to happiness and kindness, but the lack thereof sparked the violence. Grendel and the Monster from their respective works, Gardner’s Grendel and Shelley’s Frankenstein, find themselves with no companionship, nobody to share in their joys or sorrows, which leads to violence being taken out on those who rejected them; if those victims had initially accepted and loved Grendel and the Monster, this would not have
Many of the advantages are that we can now successfully avoid illness and diseases because we can take out the gene that engenders it. Frankenstein is an example of a disadvantage of using genetic engineering. Victor Frankenstein is the creator of a monster who learns that because he is ugly and everyone hates him, he can kill Victor’s friends and family for making him the way he is. Victor creates the monster in order to destroy the meaning of death but the actions he takes after creating the monster leads to many more deaths than expected. Victor’s thoughts after bringing the monster to life were, “A mummy again endued with animation could not be so hideous as that wretch.
When Frankenstein attempted to join society, he was rejected and chased out due to his differences, but he wasn’t as interested in joining the society as Grendel was. The monster was content staying away from humans until he happened upon the family of
While people reading books, certain details will lead them to the center of brainstorming and start making connections with other forms of mass media consisted of movies, newspaper articles, and social media captions. So does the Frankenstein has shown sort of likenesses of the characters’ personalities and conflicts as well as the theme of obsession to human innovation and life to the movie The Prestige, which yet at the same time reveal extraordinary dissimilarities in between. To begin with the characters in these two classical works, while Angier is just competing with another magician called Borden, Victor is dealing with an impossible mission against a giant monster that is targeting at his family. Victor has pushed himself into the department of Life Science to search the ways of immortality which break the law of nature, however, magic tricks followed by Borden and Angier can be seen as another form of science, but fake science. There is
