Frankenstein, in his last words, tries to convince Walton to continue the dangerous quest to the North Pole; "You [are] hereafter to be hailed as the benefactors of your species" 197. Ego takes control of Frankenstein's mind for a final time. Frankenstein reverts back to the way he thought at the beginning of his story when he thought that creating the Monster would make him the creator and master of a new species.
Frankenstein spent many weeks and months on his creation and put tedious amounts of work into his experiment.

The statement is true when you learn the monster request to his creator When creature see a beautiful woman sleeping on straw.
Victor and the Creature have a true vengeance for one another. The true source of Victor and the Creature 's animosity is their unparalleled hatred for themselves. Victor blames himself for the deaths of his friends when he says, "I am the cause of this-I murdered her. William, Justine and Henry-they all died by my hands”(136).
