Though, the creature is often referred to as the monster, he cannot be viewed as one-dimensional. He is responsible for the murders of William, the younger brother, Henry Clerval, Victor’s friend, and Elizabeth Lavenza, as well as being responsible for the hanging of Justine, the maid of the Frankenstein’s. Although the creature took revenge because of his anger and bitterness, it can be said that he was not born with those character traits. He became such a being due to Victor’s rejection. He experiences hate from the very beginning as Victor is horrified by his creation.
“The creature is bitter and dejected after being turned away from human civilization, much the same way that Adam in “Paradise lost was turned out of the Garden of Eden. One difference, though, makes the monster a sympathetic character, especially to contemporary readers. In the biblical story, Adam causes his own fate by sinning. His creator, Victor, however, causes the creature’s hideous existence, and it is this grotesqueness that leads to the creature’s being spurned. Only after he is repeatedly rejected does the creature become violent and decides to seek revenge” (Mellor 106).
Victor Frankenstein created a monster in the book Frankenstein. At first, Victor just wants to recreate human life, but he realized that the being looks ugly and thought that his creation is evil right off the bat. After some time pass by in the book, the monster slowly becomes a murderer due to Victor’s interference in making him suffered. This will make the monster as a victim to the cruelty of the world. The monster was treated horribly by the people in the story.
In doing so, Frankenstein left the creation to terrible experience that cause him to become murderer. The deaths that the creation orchestrated were all rooted to not being raised correctly and having a warped view of the world. All of the deaths in Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” are Victor’s fault because he left his creation to experience all of the terrible aspects of humanity without any balance or love that a creator owes to its creation. These experiences all begin with Frankenstein running away after realizing what he has created. When Frankenstein brought his poor victim to life he realised the magnitude of his actions.
These dark thoughts breed into deadly cruelty. As a result of his anger and loneliness, the Creature vows to seek revenge on the person who cursed him with his miserable existence, Victor Frankenstein. The Creature’s first of many victims, Victor’s younger brother, is killed after he insults the Creature by calling him an “ugly wretch… monster” (123). The Creature’s murder of William symbolizes the Creature’s descent to darkness, as his anger externalizes for the first time and he commits an act of violence out of uncontrollable rage. The Creature also realizes that the best way to gain revenge on Victor is to hurt those who Victor love, a twisted revelation stemming from the Creature's own limited experiences with companionship.
Then, he kills someone he was going to create to make up for it. Both of these things were wrong, and they both together do not make anything he did right. “Had I a right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations? I had before been moved by the sophisms of the being I had created; I had been struck senseless by his fiendish threats; but now, for the first time, the wickedness of my promise burst upon me…”(Shelly, 121). Frankenstein later realised, when it was too late, that what he was doing was wicked.
His first indication of his egotistic behavior is when he embarks on the task of creating life. 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
Victor Frankenstein him self represent the ego the pursuer of his own wishes and ends, the experimenter who uses reason even whilst feeling guilty about it. Freud defines his concept in just these terms “The ego represents what may be called reason … in contrast to the id, which contains the passions” (Freud) even though Victor preferred isolation on people he is not happy and he blames his family for being far away from him and he blames them for the calamity that happened. Thus we can say that victor Frankenstein has an evil side in his personality, and we can say that doppelganger is what runs victor life. Victor is the true monster of the story and he himself realize that, he realize his vanity and maybe he tries to warn his people by his isolation but it ended by the murder of them all. Then he tries to kill the monster after it ends by killing all his family, but the only way of killing the monster and destroying his is by his own death, as they are one person one cannot survive without the other.
The audience sees this treatment through his constant manipulations of Othello’s mind, planting seeds of jealousy. While talking to Brabantio, Iago also describes Othello and Desdemona’s relationship as animalistic. This furthers the idea that Iago views Othello as non-human, causing him to take inhumane actions upon him. He describes to Brabantio that “your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs” (Shakespeare 1277). This animalistic imagery shows that not only is Othello being dehumanized by Iago, but Desdemona is as well.
I cringe, clawing my flesh, and flee for home” (Gardener 14). This shows that Grendel has such a disgust and hate towards humans because they are able to turn tragedy into triumph. This happens because Grendel sees the humans burning up bits of the lost men that Grendel has killed. Another example, is when Grendel states, "Neither Breca nor you ever fought such battles," he said. "I
