He never offers any affection towards the poor creature. All of the death and turmoil tie back to Victor and his blind ambition and fear of real responsibilities. The creature had simply had experiences that morphed his personality and drove him to terrible acts. If Frankenstein had simply taken care of the creation and gave him the correct guidance, lots of needless death could have been
Instead of realizing that he achieved his goal of bringing life to an inanimate body he runs way because of how hideous it is. "Never did I behold a vision so horrible as his face, of such loathsome, yet appalling hideousness. I shut my eyes involuntarily" (Shelley 228). Even Walton is repulsed by the creature’s
The deviation of family traditions, or in the novel, a lack of parental background may negatively affect the child. Victor’s continuous rejection of the monster fuelled its rage and conquest to rid Frankenstein’s life of all happiness. As a “child” to Frankenstein, the monster’s reaction to being rejected permanently scars him, forever being the testament to his existence. Losing Victor’s acceptance is a loss held closely to the monster, reflecting upon human tendency to reject those dissimilar or unappealing. Because Frankenstein is the monster’s creator, his “God,” his “father,” the monster’s actions, fuelled by anger, creates conflict that leads to both of their eventual deaths, displaying how significantly rejection by a parent can damage a
The monster is spurned by society because of his horrific appearance, his body, alone and hated, unfit for the company of strangers, just as Frankenstein fears he is. He is miserable which makes the hatred grow, as he says, “all men hate the wretched; how then must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things!” In fact, this wretchedness and enforced isolation is the monster’s main character trait, parallel to the isolation being Frankenstein’s biggest fear. Now that Victor is in college, he does not have his family to fall back upon for affection. Repetitive The monster embodies this worry as well, as even the monster’s family “ you, [Frankenstein,] my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us.” While Frankenstein still has his family to fall upon for affection, the monster does not. This adds another layer to Frankenstein's fear: the worry that he will lose the affection guaranteed to him by his family and be left with nothing confusing.
The word “monstrous” can be confused with the definition of “monster” as something inhuman, something or someone who has lacks of remorse or caring for things that a normal human being should care for. In literature, the word monster is used to refer to men/women who have done horrible mistakes like murder or those who have no regard for life and nature. Victor Frankenstein is the real monster of the story because he condemned everyone around him to dead because the isolation that he provoked by cutting everyone of his life caused him psychological damage. Through Frankenstein, Mary Shelley attempts to show the idea of how it is unnecessary to be a creature in order to be a monster. We could be human but we still act like monsters.
Whenever the demon feels despair he remembered his deviser " an in the bitterness of my heart, I curse[s] him"(177). He senses that there is nobody who care about him and his inventor will never welcome him. Because of loneliness he begins to resentful toward Frankenstein. At the end when then Frankenstein died, monster cried with sincerely and wholehearted. He says, " I shall die, and what I now feel be no longer felt"(Shelley 197).
He had betrayed frankenstein in the part that the monster had turned evil and wanted something back in return for all the pain and suffering the monster has had. He was really hoping that making the monster would help more discoveries. He is an innocent being called a villain.”Frankenstein I’m astounded. This is the greatest discovery of the age! A wonderful piece of work!”.
He is driven away by his creator, named an outcast, and denies love from every outlet he can get. This is all driven by his looks. He is considered too ugly and a monster by normal everyday society. The Creature finally comes to terms with his suffering when Victor Frankenstein dies. He has realized that what is in front of him could have been great if he had not attacked and killed so many.
Perhaps Frankenstein is the true hero, as he scrambles across Europe to put an end to the terror he believes he’s created. Perhaps his monster is truly that--a monster, as he stops at nothing to revenge his creator. But perhaps the roles are switched, and the creature Frankenstein has created is rational in his anger with the monster who gave him his wretched life. Had Frankenstein’s excessive hubris not clouded his vision, he could have clearly seen the downfall in his creation, and the human turned monster would not have been driven insane by the monster turned
Victor becomes lost in his studies and decides to remove himself from human society. He lingered in his basement, where “[his] cheek had grown pale with study, and [his] person had become emaciated with confinement” (Shelley 32), therefore Victor loses sight of his responsibilities and the consequences of his actions. Similarly, the monster was “cast... abroad an object for the scorn and horror of mankind…” (Shelley 100), thrown into the world alone, and despised by all it encountered. Turning to Victor, the monster begged his creator to make another of its kind so he could have another being to relate to. Victor refuses, punishing the monster for his actions by forcing him into isolation.
The monster is immediately filled with regret and explains how he is truly sorry for everything that he has done and that he knows there is no way for him to fix all the mistakes he has made (180). He then says that he will end his own life in order to put himself out of his misery. This shows just how much self-hatred that he had for himself, and it also creates the reader to shift from hating the monster, to
The creature hasn’t got any life experience, doesn’t have any friends or family. The creature tries so hard to be friendly and tries to make friends, but anyone seeing the creation of Frankenstein is either terrified or making fun of it. Frankenstein isn’t there to support him, isn’t there for him like the creature needs Frankenstein. The monster eventually breaks and wants his revenge for being so lonely. This is a short summary on how the evil came to stand within the monster.
There is no mother or God to guide or teach him the ways of socialization, and so, he is isolated; watching the lives of others through a crack in a wall. He is, as the shaper sings, “The terrible race cursed by God”. (Gardner 51) Similar to how Grendel was abandoned, the Monster of Frankenstein was dealt a similar fate. From the moment the Monster opened his eyes, his creator refused and rejected him. Dr. Victor Frankenstein had created a
