Frankenstein and his monster begin with opposite lives: Frankenstein has everything and the monster has nothing. However, in creating the monster, Frankenstein’s life and feelings begin to parallel that of the monster’s life. Frankenstein is incredibly intelligent with a fascination for science, but ultimately his thirst for knowledge leads to his undoing. Similarly the monster is determined to understand the society around him. But once he does, he understands that he will never be able to find companionship, which leads him to pain and anger.
The novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, is the story of how an irresponsible scientist named Victor Frankenstein brings a creature to life without considering all the repercussions that may occur. Victor was not prepared to face any challenges that came along with creating new life and he failed to meet any of his creatures' needs. Throughout the entire novel, the creature was given a negative connotation, but the reality of the situation was the creature is the victim despite any of the sinister actions that took place. The creature in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein lacks the social acceptance required to prosper as a functional member of society.
In Frankenstein, the reader spots the danger when Victor destroys the female monster where the monster proclaims “Slave, I before reasoned with you, but you have proved yourself unworthy of my condescension. Remember that I have power; you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you. You are my creator, but I am your master; -- obey!”(Shelley 157). The reader sees the obvious tension between Victor and the monster due to both of their lacks of responsibility for each other and themselves and can relate it to the United States and their global affairs with countries like North Korea where the countries leaders have resulted to name calling like “rocketman” and “mad man”(Stevens). Throughout Frankenstein the reader saw Shelley’s theme of the dangers in not taking responsibility like pain, death, the suffering of others, and now the reader finds out how one of the dangers is the risk of composing deadly
No, we only do, or rather the people from the book only do. Finally, you start to see how unfeeling Mildred is. This happens when she tells Montag he isn’t sick, and shows no sympathy for him. She stated, “You’re not sick.” Then again, when talking about the death of Clarisse, she states, “She was simple-minded,” “That’s water under the bridge.”
Finally on page 245, Tam Lin reveals to Matt the truth that there is no difference between humans and clones. In the book, Tam Lin said that no one can tell the difference between humans and clones because there is no difference. He also said that clones being inferior are a lie. When Matt heard this, he couldn’t believe it because his whole life argued against it. However, as he lived in Aztlán, he realized that what Tam Lin had said was true and no one found out Matt was a clone until they found Matt’s tattoo.
He had gone crazy over making the monster and the creature did not look beautiful at all, instead it looked ugly and terrible.

The teacher which should be disgusted by this even if she could remember her past life because a simple act of kindness to be taken advantage like this would make any women angry she actually likes it. I fear that it actually was no superstar model that changed the teachers ' mind or some alien charm, it was the godly ability of plot armor which was soooooo strong. And after a few moment or hours or anything which me the lazy author did not specify John meets another of humanity kings. She is the rageful queen whose brother John the potato king killed but no she did not come for revenge.
Also, the monster was created not naturally born into the world. (Morrison) In the book, Victor deny the monster any love or joy because he is ugly that he describes as “when I saw the filthy mass that moved and talked, my heart sickens and my feelings were altered to those of horror and hatred” (Shelly) The quote reveals that Victor hated Frankenstein right away due to appearance only which judge the monster in an unfair way. Also, Victor made him as the perpetrator due to destroying the monster’s request for a female creature.
To the characters in the book and to those in the world today who do not know the creature’s side of the story, Frankenstein’s creature is seen as the monster. However, he never commits any act worthy of the label. He is considered a monster, simply because he is “ugly.” As soon as the creature is brought to life, Victor, his creator, notices that the creature is not visually appealing and is extremely
Although he comes with friendly intentions, the Monster is treated violently and with contempt, essentially being forced into his alienation to survive and becoming the “monster” he is already thought of as a result. The Monster’s actions are a response to the treatment he has received from others, everyday villagers and Victor alike. With little known about his origins and no way to explain himself, there is no hope for the Monster to assimilate himself. This is present in other characters of the novel as well, for example, Richard Walton, who has self-alienated in order to gain distinction and knowledge. The Monsters origins and appearance develop these themes of alienation throughout the novel, themes that are further developed by other characters and play an important role in delivering the message of
We will never know if she wrote them like this in order to have some more people like her, even if they were fictional. This would make sense, counting that is this time of the world there was no internet that people could pull out of their pocket to see if anyone was like them. Maybe she thought that she was the only one in the world like this and that no one will ever understand her. Nevertheless the story Frankenstein portrays the main character Victor Frankenstein as a bipolar individual who creates a creature from dead body parts to fill a void of loneliness and when it comes to life he immediately runs from it and tries to forget about it but constantly runs into it throughout the

The first, and possibly worst case of this is a result of the creation’s unnatural appearance. We are all aware of the amount of pressure society puts on us to look a certain way, and it is so much worse for the creation, seeing as he was not made in the same way we were. Mr. Frankenstein did not consider how the creation’s life would be affected by his unsightly appearance. Mr. Frankenstein caused the creation an immense amount of distress by removing any chance of the creation gaining acceptance into the human society. This caused even more distress once the creation discovered his appearance.
