This becomes more notable as the story progresses especially when the monster states that his “heart was poisoned with remorse” (Shelley 186). In this vital statement said by the monster, his intense regret for his murders is clearly conveyed. He even goes to the extent to metaphorically hyperbolize his feelings of remorse by stating that they have “poisoned” his heart. He adds on by saying that his heart was “fashioned to be susceptible of love and sympathy” (Shelley 186), which even further supports the idea that the monster truly believes that he was originally intended to have the traits and mindset of a human. However, the rejection brought against him by society destroyed his human traits leading him to murdering people.
The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster. The reason for these characters deaths is in Foster's words “to put stress on other characters.”(90) These deaths cross a breaking point in Victor's mind. When Victor has nobody left in his life he makes up his mind to kill the monster in an act of violent passion. He sets out to hunt the monster, but gets sick and dies on his journey.
This is similar to what Zimmerman did to Trayvon. Instead of asking Singing Boy if he was lost or who he was, he just killed him. Zimmerman did the same thing to Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman killed Trayvon based off of false judgment. This relates to my thesis because judging people causes fear and tragedy to occur.
The creature murdered the wife of Victor- Elizabeth, and it was only after this that he decided to take measures and pursue the beast. Victor Frankenstein’s allure for power had been solely responsible for his downfall, along with the deaths of whom he loved. Victor created a beast in an attempt to be represented as a god-like figure. Due to Victor’s devotion he could not commit to hating this creature and kill it. It had only been after the murder of 3 of his family members when Victor finally saw his darkness.
Tybalt has been slain, and Romeo banished, but who is to blame? Tybalt layed dead but by his own fault. Tybalt had fought to his last breath, and while Romeo had killed Tybalt it was primarily Tybalts fault and Tybalt probably deserved what he got. There are many reasons why it was his fault. Tybalt had a hatred towards peace and was known for starting fights, Tybalt had killed Mercutio, Romeo's best friend, and finally, Tybalt and Romeo were fighting and one of the two were bound to die.
Although the creature seeks for a female companion, he does not flounder in his loneliness since he decided to make Victor suffer the way he did. For this purpose, the creature murders Victor's loved ones as his way of making his creator miserable as well. As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley depicts how the creature is naturally benevolent and only seeks acceptance by society. Upon being brought to life and rejected by his creator, pain is felt by the creature. However, without a great understand of his emotions, the creature was ignorant.
Vengeance, an act of inflicting pain and suffering on another individual, was used between the two protagonists as a means to resolve conflict. The monster accomplished his revenge by murdering Victor's loved ones, while Victor responded through direct violence on the monster and his creature bride. Ultimately, both achieve their revenge on each other through their own demise. These acts resulted in tragic and devastating consequences for both Victor Frankenstein and the monster. If Victor has created his monster, and integrated him into society, and gave him the knowledge, affection he deserved, then it can be inferred his relationship with humans would have been completely different.
Victor's separation from his friends and family is an example of how exile can cause you to be distant. Although Victor left his town for scientific purposes, he regrets leaving the life he had before . He wishes he had not been so distant with everybody, and had told them about the life he had created.
