The greater part of the creature’s anger generate from the revulsion he obtain from everybody that stagger upon his vision. The book makes it apparent that the world isolated the creature, changing him into the malevolent monster that quite a lot of recognize so well. In his piece of writing, The Monster’s Human Nature, Gould squabble that Victor botched because he chased a temperament of human nature- intuitive disgust at the creature’s appearance- and did not take on the responsibility of any maker or parent that educate others in suitability (Gould 61).” Victor’s mistake was not interfering with technology and efforting to follow God, he discarded his creation and denied to take blame for his actions.
An abandoned life from society and that doesn’t follow normal activities could make you a romantic hero. In Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, she portrays the main character, Victor, as a man that is intent of learning more about nature. Victor begins to make mistakes which causes him to be full of sorrow and exiled from society. Victor begins to possess some traits from Byronic list of traits that romantic heroes possess. Rejection from community and social norms, persistent loneliness. He is also similar to the Greek God, Prometheus, who saved mankind but, only after stealing fire and ignoring Zeus’ orders. She creates this perception by using strong word choice and diction.
In life there are many evils that will try to defeat a person but the key to living a happy, fulfilling life is learning to have empathy for others who are facing their own evils. Empathy is hard to have if a person has not endured any real struggles in their life. Being able to know firsthand how it feels to go through difficulties helps create a level of empathy that leads to compassion for one another. Victor Frankenstein is a prime example of someone who has faced evils in their own life but in the end did not find compassion for others, instead he found his own hell. In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Victor’s lack of empathy opens the door into his world of selfishness, cruelty, and unhappiness.
Glory is the focus of the first part of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. Glory is an impersonal relationship where one is held above as superior to many. In the characters Robert Walton and Victor Frankenstein we see a perfect example of this pursuit for glory. Both men are compelled to seek
Victor is pictured as an inimitable chronicler through the fact that he is a dynamic character throughout the course of the novel. It is debatable that he changes as the story processes through and how he begins to understand his current surroundings through the creature and himself. For example, before the creation, he states, “His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful! Great God! His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries
Victor’s passion about learning new things brought him to the creation of an ugly monster. He never gave up on what he wanted to know about. He spend hours doing research to bring life from death. He didn't not even think about any consequences about bringing something that is left back to life. He even spends time away from his family in order to accomplish the goal that he had for himself. All of this causes him to suffer because of the negative consequences that it brought him. Victor even said “Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge”. He admits that he suffered from his relentless search of knowledge.
In most fiction stories, there are always two characters that do or do not represent different sides of the same character. Frankenstein is a short gothic horror story written by Mary Shelley. Shelley writes about a scientist who created a being from dead body parts. Victor Frankenstein as the protagonist of the story created a monstrous character that was a reflection of himself. In Frankenstein, Shelley presents two characters who represent the different sides of the same character. The monster was a clear reflection of his creator because; they had the same development, same pain and suffering, and were recluses. Victor and the monster did not physically resemble each other, but they had the same personality and traits, therefore,
Despite some critics statements that the creature Victor created is responsible for the tragedy and destruction that results after the experiment, it is Victor who is accountable because of his fixation
Victor was a very ambitious character who longed for knowledge and the presence of new life. He soon became obsessed with his creation and said,“I had worked hard for nearly two years, for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body. For this I had deprived myself of rest and health”(p 42). Victor devoted his entire life to a science experiment that would become his biggest regret. When Victor first laid eyes on the creature he realized what kind
“I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend.” (Shelley 69) Said by Frankenstein’s monster, this quote truly defines him: initially an affectionate, love-seeking creature, he transformed into an enraged killer, angry at humanity for the undeservedly poor way he was treated. Victor Frankenstein is an unique, complex individual who encounters a similar change of nature for similar reasons. The quote—though spoken by the monster—encapsulates the evolution of Victor Frankenstein’s personality; misery—a product of isolation and loneliness—aroused a deterioration of temperament from an initially benevolent Frankenstein.
To begin, his creator abandons him. Victor creates Frankenstein, but is afraid of him. “He might have spoken, but I did not hear; one hand was stretched out, seemingly to detain me, but I escaped and rushed down stairs” (Shelley 44). Victor cannot put up with the sight and deserts him. Frankenstein is left to learn everyday skills, such as reading, speaking, and eating all on
Mary Shelley’s book Frankenstein is a frame narrative of the life of Victor Frankenstein recorded by Robert Walton. It is circled around his creation of a monster that suffered a lonely life and wanted revenge for being created. In Frankenstein, Shelley portrays many big ideas but, one that continues to show importance is the idea of Human Needs and Desires. so, in the novel Mary Shelley presents the idea that all creatures have a basic need for friendship and love.
Mary Shelley shows the endless amount of revenge and that it is driven by pure hatred and rage. The monster was not created to be vengeful, he was kind hearted but when he was poorly treated by Victor and then by the Delacey family, he turned cold. In her novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley displays the immorality and destructive effects that revenge can have through Frankenstein and his pursuit of the creature.
Throughout the novel, the Monster shows a human characteristic of longing for companionship and love. He even says that “Satan has his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but [he is] solitary and detested” (Shelley 93). Once the Monster realizes this, he flees into the woods, and begins observing a family that lives in a cottage out there. He sees the way that they treat each other, and says that “[his] thoughts now become more active, and [he] longed to discover the motives and feeling of these lovely creatures” (Shelley 80). This shows that he wants what these people have, not their material things, but someone to love on, and someone to love him. Further, the Monster knows that no ordinary person is going to want to spend their
As we follow Victor through his journey of completing his goal we can see how he refuses to give up on his goal. He experiences multiple failures and false hope, however he never gives up. Victor has many setbacks like having to deal with the grief of his dying mother and becoming very ill due to the sleepless nights. These setbacks do not hold Victor back. He chooses to isolate himself from the world to complete his life goal. Victor fully trusted in himself which gave him the ability to do what he did. Like Emerson says, “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.” If you trust yourself you can truly be content with whatever you do. If you work hard you can achieve greatness. Victor shows us that not all that comes
