The Importance Of Writing In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

I enjoyed reading your discussion. I agree with you that it is hard to overlook the fact that Victor did nothing to help the creature. He was left to fend for himself. I can’t imagine how tough it would be to be on your own with no help. And your example that the creature was writing in a diary makes me wonder how he learned to write. The skill of writing is something that is learned from others. Do you think the brain Victor gave him was already capable of writing and thinking so he did not have to learn everything? Also, I agree Victor was irresponsible never taking responsibility for what he did. And for him to allow Justine to be hung was certainly pathetic especially when he knew she was innocent.
