Society is well-known for pushing those who are outsiders or strange away from society. This is prevalent to the examples in Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein. The monster who was created by Victor Frankenstein who wanted to be the first to create life was appalled by the sights of the his creation. Frankenstein’s monster is judged based on his appearances and is often ostracized by society, just as anyone in modern day society can be shunned or pushed away due to their looks or how they think. The most outstanding example of ostracism that occurred throughout the novel is based on the monster’s physical features and structure.
In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the main character Victor tends to show flickers of his own monster in his personality, leading the reader to believe they are one in the same. Victor may not outwardly portray his monster but his emotions and desires line up with that of the monsters actions. The anger Victor and the monster share brought about by society are traits of this deep emotional bond they have.

The Creature is Victor's inner most emotions, those that are often hidden due to society's expectations; this madness is brought to the surface through the monster.
It is his act of blasphemy leads to the creation of The Wretch, as he commonly refers to him, a beast abandoned to live by itself alone and cold in an unknown world. As if creating life was not a horrible act in of itself, Frankenstein inadvertently creates a life of pain and solitude of which nothing should ever be forced to suffer in. The Wretch explains his story and in a fit of rage he howls at Frankenstein asking him “Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust?” (pg. 133). One has to remember, The Wretch never asked to be made, and he knows just how much of an abomination he is.
When the Monster said this anyone would have sympathy for him and the way Pullman wrote this he made sure it did because when the Monster said that it sounded like he had a bad image of himself because he had gotten that off other people. The Monster also said “And that’s humanity in a nutshell” describing of how no one would ever accept him because everyone was so self absorbed and in it to kill it instead of being inclusive. This also was
Moreover, when he “looked around, he saw and heard of none like [himself]. Was I then a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled, and whom all men disowned” (138). Through the knowledge he acquired from spying in on the Felix family, he gained the understanding that his grotesque look doomed him to be marginalized within human society; therefore, his understanding of human history destined himself to be a monster. Although, this self-realization of a monster identity plays a huge role in the general plot and character development of Frankenstein’s Monster, it hints at a subtler interpretation of the nature of knowledge.
This quote said by Frankenstein, gave proof that he believed that the monster he created, was pointless. Also, the monster 's appearance leads many to believe that its behavior is immoral and ruthless. One of the most memorable reactions from the book is the reaction of the old man in the hut. "...perceiving me [the monster] shrieked loudly, and quitting the hut, ran across the fields with a speed of which his debilitated form hardly seemed capable." The man ran because he believed that the monster was about to hurt him, from the monster 's gruesome appearance, the man automatically assumed the monster was evil.
People thought of him just to be a monster, but if you really knew him from the inside you would know it wasn’t true. He probably had more emotions than humans themselves.

He was broken that his creator left him so he was confused on what he was.
He describes him having “Yellow skin [that] scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast….” (35) One would say that this description is “Monstrous.” Victor cannot be exactly blamed for dashing out the door, but it is important to note that he has already exposed himself to put emphasis on appearance. Unfortunately, Victor is not the only one who was terrified of “The Monster” at first sight. The Creature had been spying on a sweet, gentle family that fell into pieces when they saw him: “Agatha fainted; and Safie, unable to attend to her friend, rushed out of the cottage. Felix darted forward, and with a supernatural force…dashed me into the ground and struck me violently with a stick.” (96-97) However, establishing the Creature’s ugliness does not prove whether he is a
