Victor would stop at nothing to finish his project and became so obsessed that he was isolated from his family and friends. His way of collecting lifeless matter for his creation is unethical and morally wrong. Eventually, he is punished for his actions: “I had worked hard for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body.” (pg.56) Additionally, extreme devotion to the building of his creation caused Victor mental distress due to the fact that he neglected his own needs in order to work exclusively on the creature: “I had deprived myself of rest and health.” (Shelley 56). This is the reason that Victor did not realize he had gone too far until it was too late. 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).
This becomes more notable as the story progresses especially when the monster states that his “heart was poisoned with remorse” (Shelley 186). In this vital statement said by the monster, his intense regret for his murders is clearly conveyed. He even goes to the extent to metaphorically hyperbolize his feelings of remorse by stating that they have “poisoned” his heart. He adds on by saying that his heart was “fashioned to be susceptible of love and sympathy” (Shelley 186), which even further supports the idea that the monster truly believes that he was originally intended to have the traits and mindset of a human. However, the rejection brought against him by society destroyed his human traits leading him to murdering people.
As the creature stumbles through life, both literally and figuratively, consumed by the raging wildfire of Victor’s abandonment, and fueled by the obsession of beauty and the deprivation of a stable foundation, he wreaks havoc in Victor’s life and the lives of those who surround him. Through the use of Parental Abandonment, Shelley initiates and almost justifies the fatal unchaining of malicious acts done by the hands of the monster, by depicting the events from both Victor’s and The Monsters’ point of view, resulting in The Creature being turned into the monster that everyone thinks him to be.
The Creation In Mary Shelly’s gothic novel Frankenstein a major problem that runs through the minds of both characters is that who was actually to blame for the horrible incidents that took place. I believe that both Victor Frankenstein and his monster were to blame for the death and destruction that occurred. Victor actions were a strong cause of all the chaos by causing his monster to feel alone and abandoned and never having someone there for him. With Victor shutting out his creation from the beginning his monster had to endure the harsh struggle of surving on your own in the wilderness. When Victor and his monster finally first meet victor says aloud to the monster, “Cursed be the hands that formed you” (Shelly 82) showing that Victor

In some aspects, Frankenstein is similar to The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. In both novels, playing God plays a key role in the storylines and has a significant impact on the characters. In Frankenstein, Victor tries to play God by creating life. However, this action winds up hurting him, since his abandoned creation seeks revenge on him for the injustice he causes in the monster's life. It is clear that Victor can not handle the responsibility of playing God, since shortly after finally creating the monster, “breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” and he is “unable to endure the aspect of the being” he creates.
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.
The actions of Frankenstein creating this frightening creature, created a wretched outcome, because the creature was overwhelmed with such hate that the creature had killed people whom Victor Frankenstein cared for. The overall moral of this novel is for one to not have any regrets in one's actions, to have a knowledge of your actions and the outcomes of
Dr, Frankenstein is the true victim of the novel Frankenstein The term victim describes anyone who suffers as a result of one or multiple unfortunate incidents. In Frankenstein, Mary Shelley portrays a number of different characters as potential victims, in particular: the creature, and Dr. Frankenstein. The similarities among the two in initial experiences create difficulty in labelling one as the true victim. However, as the story progresses, it is evident that the creature is able to overcome his fate of victimization by actively responding to his unsuccessful experiences. Whereas, Dr. Frankenstein suffers as a victim due to his cowardly reaction to his misfortunes.
You, my creator, would tear me to pieces and triumph” (Shelley 147). Through his anguish, he not only describes the difficulties he has had to overcome, but also expresses the regret he feels from his previous actions regarding William Frankenstein and Justine Moritz. From this, it is possible to infer that the monster respects life and strongly desires acceptance from not only society, but also his creator, Victor. Once he realizes that acceptance will never be given to him, the monster asks Victor to construct a female monster to fill the lonely yet human void that had haunted him since his
