After his mother’s death, he has an idea of bringing the dead back to life. He creates a monster with the remains of deceased. The creation turned out so ugly that he chose to abandon it. Before the monster was hurt by people inexorability, the monster’s nature was kind and he did not want to harm any one. The creation was driven by revenge and became a real monster.
An eye for an eye or the law of retaliation is the principle most people live their lives by. For the characters in Frankenstein, this concept is apparent as the main character, Victor, creates a monster and instantly abandons him which sets off the chain of events revolving around revenge. However, as Gandhi once stated, “an eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind” (Gandhi). Throughout the novel, the creature and Victor engage in a recurring cycle of vengeance, but these acts of revenge are bittersweet as in the end it destroys both of them. In the novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley reveals how revenge consumes and destroys those who surrender to it.
The monsters revenge on Frankenstein, drives him too to be full of hatred and need for vengeance because he destroyed everything good in his life. He feels as the death of his loved ones is his fault because he is the one that created the horrid creature in the first place (Brackett). “As time passed away I became more calm; misery had her dwelling in my heart, but I no longer talked in the same incoherent manner of my own crimes; sufficient for me was the consciousness of them” (Shelley 158). The monster wanted Victor to feel the same thing as him, lonely and sadness. The monsters revenge works, Victor becomes rejected by people and has nobody but himself.
He feels alone and hated even though nobody will give him a chance. So he figures to himself to get revenge on the person that made him be so ugly and hated. The third and final way how Mary Shelley shows the theme of regret in the story Frankenstein is by using satire. Satire is shown when the Monster states “If my first introduction to humanity had been made by a young solider, burning for glory, and slaughter.
Evil comes in many different forms; sometimes there is a clear line between good and evil, but there are times where evil can overcome good. The two stories that represents these two forms are Macbeth and Beowulf. In Macbeth, the story starts out with Macbeth who is a loyal servant to King Duncan. His wife convinces Macbeth to kill King Duncan to gain power and become the new king. After hesitating, he murders King Duncan and this starts transforming him into a paranoid person.
Towards the end of the novel, the only thing Victor cared about was getting revenge on his creation for killing his loved ones. Victor stated, “I was hurried away by fury; revenge alone endowed me with strength and composure; it molded my feeling… otherwise delirium or death would have been my portion.” The only thing keeping Victor from dying was getting revenge. It controlled him, and that’s what made him a monster.

Then he tries to kill the monster after it ends by killing all his family, but the only way of killing the monster and destroying his is by his own death, as they are one person one cannot survive without the other. This part of victor death is shown at the end of the novel as he is dead the monster disappeared. The reality of the monster has been the dark and savage side of victor, all his suppressed feelings was shown thorough this creature, and by this way they complete each other and cannot live without the other.

When Huck boards a sinking ship he encounters some criminals. He overhears them deciding whether they should kill one of their members or not and they say, ¨He 'll be drowned, and won 't have nobody to blame for it but his own self. I reckon that´s a considerable sight better´n killin´ of him¨ (70). These criminals reflect the cruel people that Twain believes exist.
Victor blames himself for the deaths of his friends when he says, "I am the cause of this-I murdered her. William, Justine and Henry-they all died by my hands”(136). This is essentially true because it was Frankenstein who created the Creature and made him a monster by abandoning him. It is Frankenstein who is the monster Frankenstein hating himself for lack of thought when unleashing his creation into the world upon his own kind., the monster hating him for his abandonment. In their hate they are each fighting for control of the
Grendel vs. “The monster” Grendel in the novel by John Gardner is very similar to “the monster” in Frankenstein by Mary Shelly because both Grendel and the monster feel like outsiders, they kill humans, and they both are able to learn new things. Grendel feels like an outsider because he knows he is different and he wants to know the truth of why he is what he is and why God made him that way. Grendel asks his mother “Why are we here?” which means that he is doubting his existence. Grendel kills humans in the mead hall while they are asleep.
This was such a tragic time in history and we should all be thankful that our world isn 't like this. The Concentration Camps were made because Hitler hated the jews and wanted to kill all and they were kind of brainwashing them to tell them it is a wonderful place to live. When they were making the camps the Nazis would go around just shooting people for no reason. So Hitler and the Nazis captured the majority of the Jews and put them into these camps saying they should be here and that they deserve to died and it is all their fault.
Because the monster experiences violence rather than nurture, he turns violent against mankind. The violence from the De Lacy family causes the creature to “feel anger, then a desire for revenge, and finally a violent severing from all that is human” (Mellor). This exhibits violent recurrence that arises as nurture is replaced by violence. This violence leads to murderous actions. When the monster first encounters William, he hopes to “educate him as [his] companion” (126, Shelley).
The purpose of Gregory’s narrative of the Frank family is to show what the Frank’s have achieved, and conquered to become an empire. However, with victory comes responsibility.
