William Thrailkill Prof. Sample English 1302 2/10/18 An Outcast Creates an Outcast There is no other creature in existence that is as communal and gregarious as human beings, due to this, whenever one feels deserted or segregated by the rest of society, they tend to become cold and bitter. In Frankenstein, or, The Modern Day Prometheus, Mary Shelley portrays the monster, as well as its creator, as outcasts from society. Although, Victor has a family, and a wife while the creature does not, Victor feels he is emotionally detached from the rest of his loved ones.
The Creature’s feelings of rejection from society and the abandonment from Victor compel him to use violence and seek revenge. In so, the Creature ends up killing a great many of people throughout the story, some of which include: Victor’s younger brother William, Justine Moritz, Victor’s close friend Henry Clerval, and Victor’s soon to be wife Elizabeth Lavenza. Many would say that the story of “Frankenstein” from the start sets out to make the creature seem to be naturally evil and a monstrosity of a thing which is directly the cause of its uncontrollable bloodthirstiness, but I believe this to not be the case. Although the Creature behaves viciously and murders several people, he is not inherently evil or malicious. It is because of the human relationships he endured and the consequences of a neglected psycho-social responsibility that drove him to do such

Victor spent incorrigible amount of days and night on the study of creature but at the moment he saw the horrible appearance of the creature, he ran away like an arrow. The catastrophe brought to Victor’s life should be blamed on not only the creature’s devil and twisted mind but also Victor’s responsibility.
There was a monster that appeared to be horrifying. He was so ugly, he scared off his creator Victor. He was so ugly all the townspeople feared him and drove him into hiding.

The passage on pages 43-44 in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein describe the events that occurred as Dr. Frankenstein brought his monster to life. She effectively uses her language and imagery to develop her tone, very dark and anguished. Her diction also helps to enforce the overall theme of the passage: don’t mess with the natural order of things. Immediately at the beginning of chapter five (p. 43), Shelley gives the reader an image of the day that the monster was born on: “It was on a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils.” (Shelley 43).
Shelley uses distinctive vocabulary to describe the imagery, theme and tone of the story through Victor’s actions and emotions toward the monster. The words used gives us the knowledge of what message Shelley was trying to convey. Even though victor was very ecstatic about creating a man it turned out to be bad and his carelessness lead to the monster getting power and the ability to harm.
