Well, in my research I had found out that according to Rebecca Dudczak the one reason was that Pometheus experiences consequences from power and enlightenment,(Dudczak) just as Victor Frankenstein does in the novel. Experiencing consequesnes is the first reason Frankenstein is considered The Modern Prometheus. The inquiry for power and enlightenment and not being precautious of what could happen if you temper with the laws of nature. The consequences in Frankenstein can be compared with the original story Prometheus because there is an abundance of tragedy in this story and it seems to repeat itself as it does in Prometheus. The monster continues to strangle and kill multiple people and the bird continues to attack and eat the liver of prometheus.

Thus, when it was his turn to do something, he mimicked the people he saw. Even the De Lacey family, whom he thought to be contrary to the norm, ran away from him (Chapter 16). This ultimate act of repudiation propelled him over the edge, and he ended up committing his first act of manslaughter; he killed Victor’s nephew William Frankenstein (Chapter
The knowledge itself, or the journey to gain information?

His egotism and cowardice manifest itself even more when it not only leads to the death of his younger brother William, but also to that of Justine the young girl accused of murder, and his childhood friend Clerval( Storment, 2002). Victor claims at hand to admit to the murder so that he will be incarcerated however, he abstains from coming clean in light of the fact that he is embarrassed about himself and his unsuccessful experiment which has hurt his sense of self-pride furthermore society
Women was treated poorly in Umuofia because men believe that they were weak and in inadequate. “ Even as a little boy Okonkwo had represented his father 's failure and weakness, and even now he still remembered how he had suffered when a playmate had told him that his father was Agbala.

While Piggy spoke Roger pushed a large boulder on Piggy, thereby killing him. The parallel between the Syrian civil war and Lord of the Flies was that both Jack and Bashar al-Assad silenced people who opposed them. Aforementioned, the thirteen year old boy involved with the protests was killed after being tortured for his involvement.

I classify Victor as a monster because through his lucid thought process, he abuses his power of knowledge.
