6.How does Victor’s male ambition lead to dire consequences? Victor was blinded by his male ambition and neglected the outcomes of his desire. Men are thought to be able to achieve anything they put their mind to, that their conquest for knowledge and drive would ultimately be rewarded with the same level of success.

Regardless of the request of his family and teachers to surrender this all-expending interest he proceeded on. He did not do anything with his "free time" but think about this investigation of human liveliness. He dismissed some other thing in life that brought him bliss, so he truly became the distraught researcher that we as a whole know from popular culture.
