Victor, he is murdered! I will not attempt to console you” (p. 77). Although the monster killed one man he is responsible for two deaths and when he confronts Victor. The Monster feels no remorse. One last reason why the monster does not deserve to live with the rest of society is because he does not know true justice.
Abandoning his creation only brought out the truly evil side. The deprivation of companionship leads the creature to kill Frankenstein’s brother, William, not just to kill the young boy though. The creature tells Frankenstein that he killed William but he only executed the plan so that Frankenstein could truly feel the way that he did. He let Frankenstein know how he truly felt saying, “I am alone, and miserable; man will not associate with me”, (p.172). The death of his brother was to aid him in seeing that his creation did not have trust and did not have friendship.
Society today has an idea of normalcy, and if a person does not fit in that category, they are an outcast. People tend to lose themselves while trying to be like everyone else. Back then things were the same way, Victor treated the monster in a way that is almost like an artist abandoning their latest masterpiece. Today the type of monsters that inhabit our world are the people inside that we don’t want anyone to know. In Frankenstein, Victor was playing with the natural aspect of life and death.
What did you think about Victor? To me, Victor was a stupid person. He did whatever he wanted, but he didn’t think about what will happen later in the future. The monster was created by Victor is very lonely because of Victor. He created the monster and he had the responsibility to take care of the monster.
God in Heaven, what is John Proctor, what is John Proctor? I think it is honest, I think so; I am no saint.” (884) Because of his impure actions in the past, Proctor wanted to die with a clean conscience. This is important because it shows how much theology ruled the lives of the people in the 1600s. An innocent man was hanged because his accuser was almost exposed as a liar. The court was so fearful of the devil and of witches that they killed many people without any real evidence.
Victor felt really bad for William and thinks it was his fault William died. This was Victor's fault because if Victor did not create the monster, William would never of died. Victor’s nature was melancholy when he found out the monster may have been the cause for William’s death. Victor believes that his horrific creation is a part of himself. Victor regrets making Frankenstein a lot and knew it was a big mistake.
In the film Mary Shelley 's Frankenstein the theme of mistreatment based off physical appearance is portrayed through Frankenstein 's monster.The society is often fearful of the creature and made judgements of his actions based solely off his disturbing physical appearance, without knowing his true characteristics. Even Victor, the man who created the fearful monster eventually abandons him because he is is appalled by his creation. He believed that by creating a being made of the finest parts, the end result would be of equal quality, but when the monster awakens, Victor can see what he has created and recognises that he has done wrong. The creation of an unnatural being, by unnatural means ultimately disgusts Victor. Victor 's rejection of his creation " is based upon the fact that he had worked night and day, at the expense of his own health and family, to "birth" his "son."
Who is to blame for wrongdoing- the individual or society? Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is an excellent instance in which this long-argued debate is examined and put into play. It is true that Victor’s monster committed numerous murders and other acts of depravity. However, the monster did not commit those acts out of a desire to be a harrowing killer, but stemmed rather from a desire for retribution for how his creator made him appear to society. When first on his own, Victor’s monster starts out as benevolent and accommodating.
During act 3 the Monster wanted to be with someone innocent like William Frankenstein, but even he rejected it, thus making it angry and want revenge. This also proves that the Monster was originally kind hearted, its evilness was caused by his environment and
It is possible that Victor could have instilled values, and taught the monster kindness and compassion rather than hatred and resentment. One of the main reasons the monster was so violent was that he was seeking revenge for the fact that Victor wasn't an ideal creator to his creation. Before Victor even brought the monster to life, he was already going against nature. Bringing something that was dead back to life goes against nature, and against religious nature. It is horrifying to think that Victor was playing God himself, and took it in his hands to decide to bring something to life once again.
