Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published.

He has a hatred for Frankenstein and how he left him all alone. This would be similar to leaving a baby all alone and making it fend for himself when they do not know the basic needs to live.
