Monsters and Narrative : The construction of the fears from within the text in Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Gothic literature, more often than not, deals with monsters. The monster is a representation of the strongest fears and the more hidden desires of the society in which the book is written. In The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, as in Frankenstein, this fear is also contrasted with the narration of each story. In other words, the fear represented through each monster is exalted with the way each story is narrated. In both stories the monster is a creation of scientific research but each one threatens the world in different ways.
10)Victor’s dismay for the monster doesn’t mean he shouldn’t take responsibility and take care of his creation. 11) Victor spent plenty of time on the creature and the monster, larger and stronger than Victor petrified Victor which caused him to enter a state of illness caused by fear. 12) A person who lacks an identity such as Victor attempted to create a life which resulted in a hurried project and a scary creature. 13) Since Victor played God in the creation of the monster the monster had the right to despise Victor.

As the story moves on briefly how he learned through observation and experimentation. As time moves on in the novel the reader can see how both people,Victor Frankenstein and his monster grow in their own ways and how their hatred for each other 's grows till it led to the downfall and even death of one of the characters. In the novel Frankenstein there were two ways in which education was obtained one was by books and schooling and the other was by experimentation and observation. While Frankenstein was more of a book Lerner he did have some moments of learning through experimentation. His monster on the other hand learned most if not all of his education through experience, experimentation, and observation.
“‘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, 20.11). Victor denies the monster humanity because he is appalled by his features, and that’s what makes Victor the true monster. He made early judgement on who the monster was before the monster could speak because he was terrifying, and society had made him believe that if it were different it was dangerous. Even when the monster promised to leave society forever if he were only given someone to love, to feel normal, the idea that anything outside their realm of societal norms being allowed to continue existing was just too much for Victor.
Limits on Knowledge Mary Shelley 's novel Frankenstein shows there are certain limits to what mankind is allowed to know.

Many times, people lead themselves to their own downfall. Their demise is often a long and arduous one where they find themselves alone at the end. This truth is frequently depicted in novels, plays and other forms of entertainment. The isolation that occurs in these narratives is one that makes any human with a beating heart fear making the same mistakes that the characters do. In Sophocles weaves this theme of alienation into the plot of his plays, Oedipus Rex and Antigone, to tell a story where both Oedipus and his daughter, Antigone, are cut off from the rest of the world because of their misdeeds.
After Victor Frankenstein created the Monster, Frankenstein was “unable to endure the aspect of the being [he] had created, [and] rushed out of the room…” (35). Frightened of his very own creation due to its hideous appearance, Frankenstein took flight and didn’t think of the consequences that would eventually follow. Being terror-stricken by the Monster and fleeing shows Frankenstein’s strong sense of fear. Though it was cruel that Frankenstein would run away from the very creation he put together with his very own two hands, his reaction of fear and panic proves that he does contain a sense of humanity within him. Indeed, it is also true that Frankenstein has failed to tolerate or look past the Monster’s flawed appearance; however, because he himself was the creator of the Monster, he felt a sense of pressure and fear of being the one to have to take responsibility for creating something so
He had a conversation with the daemon. The daemon hated Victor and everyone who had any sort of connection with him. There was no relationship between the two.

The text delineates the lives of multiple characters who have experienced pain as a result of their alienation from others. These characters include a back man, named Crook’s, who is separated from society because of his skin color, Curley’s wife who, in the time period, was treated with disrespect because of her gender, and two itinerant farm laborers, George and Lennie, once the best of friends, who have lost each other in a world of fear and misfortune.

Throughout the novel no one will give him a chance to show them that he is not harmful, despite his appearance. If Victor wouldn´t have turned him away from the very beginning he could have saved a lot of people from getting hurt.
