Frankenstein fails to properly nurture his creation’s development. Consequently, the monster developed to show his hatred to other humans. The creature or monster was a successful experiment created by Frankenstein. Repulsed by his own owner, the monster had to fend for himself. Nature was the only thing that supported him.
The monster found himself lost and on his own in nature without anyone to help him, “I knew, and could distinguish, nothing;” (Shelley, 71) When someone is left with no information about themselves or how to do something they can feel helpless. This is exactly like how Frankenstein gave the monster no help on how to survive in the real world. Once you try to do something multiple times and still are not able to get it right, you begin to feel helpless and inferior to others. This can cause frustration because you feel like everyone understands what is going on around you, but you are clueless of your surroundings. Altogether the monster in Frankenstein feels betrayed by his creator, lonely while he was alone in the woods with no one around him and helpless when he was not able to understand what was going on in the world he was living in.
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. [Frankenstein rejects the monster and pretends it doesn’t exist, representing an inability to cope with his fear of loneliness. It then proceeds to destroy
The death of William, Henry, and Elizabeth were all caused by the cruel demeanor of the world around him to people or things who look different. Just like in the present, people judge each other based on looks instead of attitude and personality. De Lacey wasn’t afraid of the Monster because he was blind and only knew him based on his personality. When Felix came into the room, he was afraid and pulled the man away from the Monster because he thought that the Monster would harm the
Their personality, usually described as melancholy when readers compares it to the protagonist, or unpardonably vicious from their actions toward the civilians. Their existences were unwanted in their society, yet is the society whom created them. Monsters such as Grendel and Frankenstein’s monster emphasize the aspects of living, though their presence seems to be redundant to their society. In their respective societies, Grendel and Frankenstein’s monster had no one that is similar to them. Grendel had his mother, but he did not have the ability to communicate with the civilians.
Victor falls ill with anxiety, and as a result of Victor’s neglect the monster begins to destroy his life. Even when the monster confronts Frankenstein, threatening that he “will glut the maw of death, until it be satiated with the blood of [Frankenstein’s] remaining friends, 102" Victor does not acknowledge the problem he has caused, the literal embodiment of his anxiety. He does not attempt to confront the monster head on or alleviate his loneliness, both a form of acknowledgement and thus a healthy way to respond to his fears. Instead, he once again pretends the monster doesn’t exist which only further enrages and empowers him. Once again, this mirrors the fact that when fears and anxiety go undealt with they will only grow and confirms that the monster is the embodiment of this
He is saying that he left everything for his relentless search of knowledge and forgetting about his physical. I think that his suffering is do to the doubts that he had about life.

Because of his lack of human appearance, society making something bad awake inside him rejects the monster.
However, through comparing the characters ' traits, actions, and habits, the reader will discover the true monster in Frankenstein.

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.
It is clear that Victor Frankenstein did not complete his role as a parent. Due to this, it further led the monster to misbehave and feel as if he does not have a purpose in life. Parents should be there to express love and care towards their newborn. Within the novel, Frankenstein disregards the monster, which brings out the violence and turmoil within the monster.
