15). It is evident that isolation has overcome the Creature, and he just wants to belong somewhere. This derives from his lack of father figure to teach him how to politely address the outside world that is terrified of him. By learning from watching the family he wants to attempt to communicate with, he has not been able to feel involved in the world. Adding to this, the Creature cries, “Shall each man.
The use of allusions help the reader to interpret what the author is trying to convey. Within the novel, Mary Shelley, provides numerous references to the well-known narrative Paradise Lost. An example, is when ‘the monster’ talks about himself to Walton, the former saying “The fallen angel becomes a malignant devil.”(Chapter 24, pg 221) This text refers to the character Satan or the devil in Paradise Lost, how he previously was an angel that had fallen from the heavens. The monster believes that he is like Satan. He once was good, saving a young girl from drowning, but like Satan, he has fallen into the pits of hell.
One has to remember, The Wretch never asked to be made, and he knows just how much of an abomination he is. His very existence is blasphemous and hideous, and he knows that, and it hurts him every moment of every day. Even then, however, he still tries to ease the pain in his life, and when he is refused even this by Frankenstein, he desires only revenge. If Frankenstein had never blasphemed against nature he would never have forced a poor monster to such a horrid life and thus never would have caused him to lose so much. It is also pivotal to remember that he did not just lose his family, but by creating such a monster he loses his place amongst humanity as he says “I had no right to share their intercourse.
And for said knowledge and glory, Victor goes above and beyond for it; even resorting to grave robbing to create, 'the glorious creature'. He becomes obsessed, moody and temperamental; distancing himself from family and friends and seeking the beauty of nature. The creature, on the other hand 'grew up', so to speak, alone and abandoned. There was nothing but hate and horror for the creature. The monster was abandoned by his mother, Victor because of fear and revulsion.The creature like Victor was self-learned and was intrigued ; wanting knowledge but his main drive was not glory, fame or the mystery of life but was basic human needs; love, family and acceptance.
Harry only wishes for the family he never knew – his parents – and hates the one he's stuck with – the Dursleys. Blood ties can only take you so far, and blood ties don’t nessecarily mean that love will be given. The Dursleys had fed, clothed, and barely sheltered Harry , but they didn’t love him, and they certainly didn’t treat him as if he belonged. Instead,
Willy always found his dreams in someone else which is why his happiness never came. At first it was his father then it was his brother Ben, and then it was famous sales man Dave Singleman. He looked for others inside of himself which led to him not being satisfied. Dreams can not be rented or borrowed. Willy never realized this and in turn it caused his mental health to deteriorate even more than it already had.
Unlike Victor Frankenstein’s birth, the creature searched for glory from a beginning of loneliness and a craving for love from the humans he wished to be. Even though he was unfamiliar with the typical childhood when he was first ‘awakened’, the monster knew he had “no money, no friends, no kind of property”, and he wished to change that (128). He wanted what everyone else got freely, and even with this unfairness, he tried desperately to earn these ‘normal’ assurances he didn’t already own—like acceptance. When the creature was furiously denied these privileges, he turned away from humanity and their prejudice and looked to his own race, demanding a similar undead wife from Frankenstein. “‘You must create a female for me with whom I can live in the interchange of those sympathies necessary for my being.
Therefore, he was made evil by the way he was treated. The saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” it quite true in this case. The monster was not born evil. He tried over and over again to get people to see past his ugliness and into his heart but no one could see it. This changed the monster into a sad and lonely monster with nothing to live for.
Victor Frankenstein created a monster in the book Frankenstein. At first, Victor just wants to recreate human life, but he realized that the being looks ugly and thought that his creation is evil right off the bat. After some time pass by in the book, the monster slowly becomes a murderer due to Victor’s interference in making him suffered. This will make the monster as a victim to the cruelty of the world. The monster was treated horribly by the people in the story.
In the same way, she uses Victor Frankenstein to represent his display of humanity by showing responsibility and compassion for his creation. This also involves the Enlightenment era because Victor gains knowledges to create his creature, but instead he created a monster that he could not control. He starts to resent his own creation because of its imperfections and with that there is an emotional barrier between his creation and him. This only caused more problems as it made the monster feel lonely and unloved. When Frankenstein and the monster met again, the monster demanded that he creates a female companion for him.
His false portrayal and constant rejection never stopped him from adapting to society, evidently it did turn him down a dark and vengeful path. Just as it did for the Monster. When Frankenstein attempted to join society, he was rejected and chased out due to his differences, but he wasn’t as interested in joining the society as Grendel was. The monster was content staying away from humans until he happened upon the family of
The only way it becomes a murderer is when its main goal is to seek revenge. The creature is pissed off because he has been abandoned his whole life by his creator and with no one to take care of him he is left alone in this belligerent world. He can not simply be existing in this world where he has nobody to love. That is all he is looking for. He wants to love someone and feel secured by another’s love.
Initially, it was a huge issue with Herman and became only worse when he was finally unable to work at all. He feared there would be no one to maintain the house and take care of the children if she was working. It also threatened his masculinity, but similar to the families in the museum, they had no choice. If he wanted his children to eat and have a home he had to allow Katie to work. Several other ideas also overlapped between the Tenement Museum and Jews without Money.
Franz let him know that "When you forgive, you love and when you love, you forgive." (Into the Wild) Since he spent his life being upset with his parents, he never forgave them, so he couldn 't love them. Going to Alaska was his way of running away from his problems and trying to put them in the back of his mind. Doing so would only hinder any other close relationship he encounters because of his lack of trust. The majority of his perspectives on life and society originated from the hatred that he felt towards his parents; he opposed all that they wanted for him.
Because of the loving and care he received from his parents, Alphonse Frankenstein and Caroline Beaufort, Victor found himself unable to function around a new group of people when he got to the university. "I, who had ever been surrounded by amiable companions, continually engaged in endeavoring to bestow mutual pleasure. I was now alone. In the university whither I was going I must form my own friends and be my own protector" (26). The isolated Victor is different in several ways including his manner, and the way he goes about his education, which is more focused and ultimately more obsessive.
