The most outstanding example of ostracism that occurred throughout the novel is based on the monster’s physical features and structure. This is prevalent due to the fact that the moment the monster is created, Victor calls it a catastrophe and is horrified by what he has created. He explained, “The beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” (Shelley 51). When Victor uses words such as “dream vanished”, “breathless horror” and “disgust” he is showing his emotions for the

The Creature in Frankenstein Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein” is an inspirational work of horror and science fiction; it is the narrative of an unorthodox act of creation, of a monster which torments his miserable creator. The author puts forth ideas, and reinforces it through the development of the plot, that mankind is capable of both good and evil. Shelly demonstrates the ‘humanity’ of the creature; his actions and his inclination are like those of mankind. Indeed, even the negative aspect of his character, demonstrated through his quest for revenge, has a parallel in the actions of his human creator. In Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” the creature is represented as being vicious and murderous but he is not inherently evil or malicious.
In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, it can be argued that the creator, Victor Frankenstein, could be considered the “monster” rather than the creature itself. Victor’s creation was made in greed and obsession. Not only did Victor steal the body of a murderer, he stole the brain of his most influenced professor. After the birth of Victor’s creature, he realizes that his creation was abnormally strong and potentially dangerous. With this strength, Victor becomes scared and wants his creation dead.
Throughout Frankenstein, Shelley uses Victor to warn the reader of the dangers of aspiring to godliness, and the consequences one faces in the aftermath doing so, even going as far as to compare Victor to Satan, tempting the crew of Walton’s ship, in the book’s final pages.

In Frankenstein, Victor speaks of his desire to create the Creature, saying, “I deemed it criminal to throw away in useless grief those talents that might be useful to my fellow-creatures.” (152). Shelley’s diction choices, such as the word “useless” exemplify Victor’s excessive hubris, portraying him as a man who creates his Creature for, in his mind, the good of society. Additionally, Shelley repeats the word “use”

Determining who the monster is in the novel Frankenstein is a question that could be based on a variety of levels. There is one character that does embody horror and monstrosity in the novel that shows he is the true monster.

Not just any knowledge, but he stated, “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn,” and goes on to say that the, “inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man

Showing that Neo was taught through artificial intelligence and later in the movie learned to beat the system comes close with Locke and how he implies that all knowledge comes exclusively through experience. Locke theory also goes against the movie as well with saying that knowledge cannot be inherent. In the movie Neo was one of the biggest hackers in the computer before he was introduced into the new world of the matrix. Also in the movie all men were not created equal because Neo started off with less knowledge as Morpheus about the matrix and how to try and beat the system. Going towards the end of the movie they become equal because Neo learns how to beat the system but to begin with Neo did not have equal power.
