As stated earlier, Frankenstein and his monster are not completely alike. For example, Frankenstein wanted to play God. He wanted to breach the boundaries of life and death. The monster did not care about anything like that. All he wanted was companionship and someone to love that would love him back.
He also implies that he was not made by God when he says, “I remembered Adam’s supplication to his Creator. But where was mine?” (112). The monster is trying to point out that if God was his creator he would have known God. Experiencing reason, pain, anger, growth, and being made by God are just some of the qualities of being human. Even though the monster experiences the human qualities of reason, pain, and anger, he lacks the most important human qualities: growth, and being made by
In the novel, Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, the two main characters, Victor Frankenstein and his creature, both display a sense of moral ambiguity. Each character has committed both good and evil alike, and neither knew the consequences of what they had done. However, Victor Frankenstein is generally the morally ambiguous character by his treatment of his creation and his own imperious personality. He wanted to be able to help science by recreating life or bringing it back, but at the same time, he did not want to consider the consequences of doing so. Victor tries to prove himself as a good moral character in the relationship between his creation and himself.
He started an experiment for the sake of science, but saw it as a "[success] in discovering the cause of generation and life" (31). Frankenstein saw himself as a creator of man, as God. That idea went against beliefs stating that there is only one God and soon brought misfortunes to Frankenstein. Another conflict emerged through the thoughts of Frankenstein's creature. During his journey to understanding the world, the creature comes across books.
Victor Frankenstein tries creating the creature with his new technology. With his creature he thought the creature would be a perfect human but it ended up being ugly and scary. This shows that doctors nowadays should not try and create and human. Trying to create a human would require doctors to changing stuff in the
The power of knowledge has an effect on many of the characters. Victor wanted to create the Creature to learn more about science and giving life to something lifeless. Knowledge, the driving force behind Victor’s experiment, caused the creation of the Creature and set the course for the rest of the plot. The Creature desires the power of knowledge in his own life. When he flees after Victor abandons him, he does not know anything about society, the world, or how people interact.
The way you speak says a lot about you. Victor created his creature in a manner that even he was afraid of it and ran off, so he never had the opportunity to show him how to speak. However, the monster learned to speak and act in a very proper manner. The eloquence and persuasiveness make it easier as a reader to sympathise with Victor’s creation because you learn he’s not evil, has humane characteristics, and forget he’s a monster. Rejected by his creator, the monster seeks shelter, however, he is disoriented and with the basic concepts that will allow him to survive.
In the novel the monster implores Victor to create an “Eve” for him to be with. Before Victor was thinking, he agreed to create a partner for the monster but following contemplation, Victor noticed the ramifications that would come into play, so he decided not to create “Eve” and destroy the idea. The allusion was created to connect the biblical story of Adam and Eve. In this allusion Shelley makes the role of Victor to represent God and the monster to represent Eve. In the biblical story of Adam and Eve, one of the reasons God made Eve was so that Adam was not lonely.
Frankenstein initially agrees to the creation of another creature, but later goes back on his promise by saying, “Begone! I do break my promise; never will I create another like yourself, equal in deformity and wickedness” (Shelley 119). As a father figure for the creature, not fulfilling his promise was a terrible thing to
For people without these special individuals they search vigorously to obtain them. In Frankenstein, the monster looks at the cottagers as his protectors and friends, even though they did not know of his existence. The feelings The Monster felt were clearly expressed in this passage which says “ I looked upon them as superior beings… I formed in my imagination… pictures of presenting myself… I imagined that they would be be disgusted, until, by my gentle demeanour… I should win their favour and afterwards their love” (Shelley, 103). This text exemplifies the fact that although the family does not acknowledge the Monster, he still looks up to them and hopes that one day they will become acquainted. The novel Misery shares resemblance in their situations.

Many books exist that have been made into films to go along with them, but they somehow never actually completely match. In today 's society Beowulf and Grendel (Gunnarsson), the movie added material to relate it to a more modern audience. Productions company based, the way they make their movies on they way society accepts things and on the cultural views of their audience. For example, in Beowulf (Heaney) the epic Beowulf defeated the “demon monster”, Grendel just for glory. In opposite, the film Beowulf was more compassionate and cared to know what they Danes had done to upset Grendel for him to want to kill their people.
In other words, they have eliminated the supernatural and replaced it with naturalism. In reality, they have eliminated the Christian worldview and replaced it with a secular, atheistic one! The moment in time that Ham’s fingertips typed the words,“unproven natural processes,” his argument became invalid. Evolution is a highly esteemed field of science with mounds of evidence supporting it. The scientific community is finding new evidence for evolution and a natural biogenesis daily.
