The Real Villain Experiences, they mold your personality. They dictate what kind of person you are going to be. Victor Frankenstein clearly did not understand this when he created his “monster”. He left his creation alone in the world to figure things out by itself. In doing so, Frankenstein left the creation to terrible experience that cause him to become murderer.
The most outstanding example of ostracism that occurred throughout the novel is based on the monster’s physical features and structure. This is prevalent due to the fact that the moment the monster is created, Victor calls it a catastrophe and is horrified by what he has created. He explained, “The beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” (Shelley 51). When Victor uses words such as “dream vanished”, “breathless horror” and “disgust” he is showing his emotions for the

In Frankenstein, through strong diction, the simile of a demon, and characterization of Victor and the Monster, Shelley argues that the greatest influence on human behavior would be that a person 's environment is that completely takes a toll on their mental state. Authors such as Noreena Hertz and Roger Scruton also have similar analysis on this idea of human behavior. Through what Victor and the Monster have been through, towards the end, the monster felt he went through much more pain then Victor did because of how he didn’t care for him and expresses this through the strong diction Shelley portrays.

The creature disrupts the current order or society by merely existing, and this causes people to be frightened and to reject the creature.
