After killing a few of his loved ones he finally decides to meet with Victor himself. He wanted Victor to make him a girl that looked just as hideous as him so that he wouldn’t be lonely anymore. If Victor agreed to this, the monster would stop killing his loved ones. Victor made this promise but didn’t keep it. This ultimately led to the death of the rest of his family ending with him.
Once victor brings the creature to life, he immediately realizes the hideousness of what he has done: “Now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” (Shelley 56). Furthermore, Victor struggles to cope with his creation throughout the novel. The creature wants to take revenge on Victor for abandoning him and causes Victor grief by killing the people he cares about. When the creature kills, Victor feels responsible and guilty of the murders. He continually breaks down with each death by “his” hands, which makes him go mad.
The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster. The reason for these characters deaths is in Foster's words “to put stress on other characters.”(90) These deaths cross a breaking point in Victor's mind. When Victor has nobody left in his life he makes up his mind to kill the monster in an act of violent passion. He sets out to hunt the monster, but gets sick and dies on his journey.
In his first encounter with Victor, he chases Frankenstein to a mountain where he plans to kill him. Victor falls over a cliff, and pleads for help.

In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, both Victor and the creature have qualities that make them resemble “humans,” or “monsters.” A monster finds joy in bringing harm to others, and does anything to get what they want. They do this without thinking of the consequences, and may not feel regret afterwards. The creature repeatedly demonstrated this quality throughout the novel. The creature resembles a monster because he makes Victor suffer after feeling rejected. The creature finds William, Victor’s brother, in the woods and kills him.
Throughout literature, abandonment is a leading cause of conflict and struggle. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is successful in his endeavor to create life, but once he sees the life he has created he runs from it out of fear. This causes the Creature to be left all alone, which makes him grow bitter and want to take revenge on Victor by getting rid of the people in his life. The Creature kills Victor’s brother William, his best friend Clerval, and his fiancee Elizabeth. All because he had nobody to love him.
Isolation and a lack of companionship is the tragic reality for the monster, who was abandoned by his creator and is repulsive to everyone that he comes across. Victor removes himself from society for many months; severing nearly all human contact then renouncing his creation based on the monster's appearance. As the monster matures he begins to understands the relationship the cottagers share with one another, while the monster, “yearned to be known and loved by these amiable creatures: to see their sweet looks directed towards me with affection was the utmost limit of my ambition.”(Shelley). Armed with nothing but the longing for a real connection, the monster approaches his unknowing hosts only to be “brutally attacked—by those he trusted...because of their human ignorance.”(Millhauser). This violent rejection is a repetition of Victor’s lack of acceptance for the monster and attention to his family.
Not only did he have close relationships with his family but also very much so with Elizabeth, and his closest friend Clerval. The type of relationship he shared with them guys all changed and disappeared when the monster began to seek revenge on his creator and began going after all Victors friends and family that he loved very much. But, although, Frankenstein craves revenge his creation also wants to seek retaliation. Throughout the story both good and evil difficulties manage both the creature and his creator to obtain revenge amongst each other.
Victor never tells the truth. As a result, when Victor does decide to tell the truth it is too late. In Frankenstein, Victor pays the ultimate price of secrecy. Victor’s secrets become his greatest mistake and cause his eventual downfall. The secrecy starts out slow with him creating a monster at Ingolstadt and not telling his family about it.
Both Othello and Frankenstein are good men looking to be accepted by society, but are transformed into monstrous beings due to their desire for acceptance, isolation, and relationships with others.

Othello wants revenge on Desdemona for being unfaithful as Iago has been telling him. At night Othello goes into her chamber to murder her saying “Yet she must die, else she'll betray more men/ put out the light and then put out the light “.
As the scene began the visual element, light, is used to focus in on Victor and his wife, but as Frankenstein came into the frame to kill Victor’s wife the light shifted so that we could see only him. Frankenstein’s costume in this scene included tarnished clothing as he was covered in sweat and shaking, and in his face and his actions fear and hurt could be seen. The audience could see that he had been so hurt that he felt revenge was the only option. The light then followed Frankenstein’s hands as he reached up to kill Victor’s wife, which created an eerie and suspenseful feeling. In this moment there was no sound other than the music, which is an aural element.
All the monster wanted was company, but because he feels alone. He tries to make friends with the people, but every time someone saw him, they would scream and run away from him. When he talks to Frankenstein, he tells him “I am alone and miserable: man will not associate with me.” The monster first kills Victor 's little brother because he is mad at Victor for creating him the way he is.
