The Monster tried to do everything he could possibly do with other humans right, but they just didn’t accept him. The Monster new no one would accept him until the day he died so he just wanted Frankenstein to make him a wife so he would have someone just like him. So The Monster snapped and said to Clerval “He made me too well. I’m disgusting to look at”. When the Monster said this anyone would have sympathy for him and the way Pullman wrote this he made sure it did because when the Monster said that it sounded like he had a bad image of himself because he had gotten that off other people.
Relationships in Frankenstein 1)Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel analyzes the life of a monster abandoned by his father and creator with no companionship in life. 2) The monster created to appear beautiful turns out ugly which leads to his father abandoning him in fear. 3) The creator, Frankenstein, recognized the monster as grotesque and ran away in fear of the monster he had created. 4) The monster runs away and after he becomes self educated he returns to his father in order to receive companionship. 5) Even a monster needs companionship to survive the loneliness of being different.
“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
“‘Shall each man,’ cried he, ‘find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn,’” (Shelley, 20.11). Victor denies the monster humanity because he is appalled by his features, and that’s what makes Victor the true monster. He made early judgement on who the monster was before the monster could speak because he was terrifying, and society had made him believe that if it were different it was dangerous. Even when the monster promised to leave society forever if he were only given someone to love, to feel normal, the idea that anything outside their realm of societal norms being allowed to continue existing was just too much for Victor.
It is his act of blasphemy leads to the creation of The Wretch, as he commonly refers to him, a beast abandoned to live by itself alone and cold in an unknown world. As if creating life was not a horrible act in of itself, Frankenstein inadvertently creates a life of pain and solitude of which nothing should ever be forced to suffer in. The Wretch explains his story and in a fit of rage he howls at Frankenstein asking him “Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust?” (pg. 133). One has to remember, The Wretch never asked to be made, and he knows just how much of an abomination he is.
The monster on the other hand had known only loneliness from the second he opened his eyes. The monster learns through painful rejection that he will never find companionship because humans are unable to see past his ghastly appearance and in anger tears away one of Frankenstein’s many companions. This begins the spiral of anger and loneliness that leads to the monster killing nearly everyone Frankenstein is close to. This, inadvertently, forces Frankenstein to have the same feelings of anguish and loneliness that he first instigated in the monster. Frankenstein never realises that all the monster wants is a companion, he cannot see his own emotions reflected in his creation.
And who is it who in fact enjoyed his solitude and seclusion from society? That would be none other than Victor Frankenstein himself. The disturbing reality that Victor is part god and part wild beast for his cruel actions towards his creation displays the evil that comes from a man when he removes himself from society. The Monster partially experiences these effects as well from his unwelcome seclusion from society when he is also slowly pulled back and forth between good and evil. Mary Shelley made no mistake in making this clear through her writing, however.
Frankenstein Mary Shelley’s novel, “Frankenstein” highlights an interesting fictional scenario where Victor Frankenstein, the supposed doomed protagonist of the story creates an intelligent, but grotesque monster after studying in Ingolstadt and discovering the secret to life. After Victor resurrects the creature from the dead, which is made up of old fashioned body parts, he abandons it. The reason for this is because of the creatures’ monstrosity of an appearance; Frankenstein’s own creation horrifies him when he looks at it. After being disregarded by his so called “father” the Creature is left to face the world with no understanding of it or of himself. Being the eight-foot-tall, hideously ugly creation of Victor Frankenstein the Creature attempts to integrate himself into human social patterns, but all of those that have any kind of interactions with him reject him in
All the monster wants is love. The Monster is the victim because his creator abandons him, his appearance affects his relationship with the people he meets, and his desire to feel loved. To begin, his creator abandons him. Victor creates Frankenstein, but is afraid of him. “He might have spoken, but I did not hear; one hand was stretched out, seemingly to detain me, but I escaped and rushed down stairs” (Shelley 44).
However, in taking revenge, the creature ensures that he will never be accepted by society. Furthermore, revenge does not only consume the creature, it consumes Victor as well. While the creature is not considered a “monster” at first, the desire for revenge transforms him and Victor into true monsters who have no aspirations beyond destroying each other (“Frankenstein Themes: Revenge”). As stated previously, Victor ultimately finds himself dead because of his unavoidable loathing of the creature. Additionally, at the end of the novel, the creature implies that the flame motivated him to create havoc, but now that Victor is dead, he is slowly dying.
He was broken that his creator left him so he was confused on what he was. This, would lead Frankenstein to kill people who were close to his creator. Frankenstein didn 't know any other way to express his emotions. He seemed to only do bad things, but he helped a girl from drowning and helped out a group of poor peasants. His appearance was the biggest factor.
