Also, the monster was created not naturally born into the world. (Morrison) In the book, Victor deny the monster any love or joy because he is ugly that he describes as “when I saw the filthy mass that moved and talked, my heart sickens and my feelings were altered to those of horror and hatred” (Shelly) The quote reveals that Victor hated Frankenstein right away due to appearance only which judge the monster in an unfair way. Also, Victor made him as the perpetrator due to destroying the monster’s request for a female creature. Victor was afraid that the monster would cause more chaos with a female partner by his side; however, the monster wants someone who actually cares and loves him as the way he is for his personality. Truly, the monster is a victim because he was judged right away by his own creator.
Frankenstein and his monster begin with opposite lives: Frankenstein has everything and the monster has nothing. However, in creating the monster, Frankenstein’s life and feelings begin to parallel that of the monster’s life. Frankenstein is incredibly intelligent with a fascination for science, but ultimately his thirst for knowledge leads to his undoing. Similarly the monster is determined to understand the society around him. But once he does, he understands that he will never be able to find companionship, which leads him to pain and anger.
The Monster tried to do everything he could possibly do with other humans right, but they just didn’t accept him. The Monster new no one would accept him until the day he died so he just wanted Frankenstein to make him a wife so he would have someone just like him. So The Monster snapped and said to Clerval “He made me too well. I’m disgusting to look at”. 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.
10)Victor’s dismay for the monster doesn’t mean he shouldn’t take responsibility and take care of his creation. 11) Victor spent plenty of time on the creature and the monster, larger and stronger than Victor petrified Victor which caused him to enter a state of illness caused by fear. 12) A person who lacks an identity such as Victor attempted to create a life which resulted in a hurried project and a scary creature. 13) Since Victor played God in the creation of the monster the monster had the right to despise Victor. (Shelley) 14) Since Victor denies the monster social acceptance, the monster is left to self educate himself which leads to isolation issues which cause violence.
He is a monster because not only his actions showed it, but his mind was consumed as well. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in this novel, because he obtained this knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him. Victor became a monster by allowing this knowledge of creation to consume his actions and mind and in the end, it destroyed him and everyone that he loved. I interpreted that Mary Shelley is trying to show us that allowing passion and desires to go uncontrolled in your life, will lead to destruction and turn you into a
In society, monsters are not to control because they are different from the norm. Humans beings want to be welcomed by society because if they are not they would become an outcast. The monster recalls,” I viewed myself in a transparent pool! At first, I started back, unable to believe that it was indeed I who was reflected in the mirror.”(Shelley 130) The monster finds himself hideous and could not accept the way he looks when he first sees his own reflection. The monster’s appearance also made many people assume that the monster would behave ruthlessly and immorally.
With regard to Frankenstein that acts as a power glass through which we can sight that how the society alienates certain people just because they don’t complete their preferred and important requirements in the society. It exposes the strange unfamiliar position of society. The individual who was considered monstrous due to hideous appearance are regarded as disgusting and awful. Even though the fiend has sociable purpose, the citizens were arrogant and were assembling such judgments just being shaped by the society and therefore presumed the creature as evil. This mindset cause the refusal by the not only strangers but by the own family.
They attack him and called him wretched names. People looked at him because he had a deformity, which made them see him as inhuman. Just because you have a deformity doesn’t make him inhuman. He is probably more human than most of those people who treated
The monster never got a chance to experience a mother or fatherly love just like his creator. Moreover, he also lived in isolation because of his monstrous appearance that made people to reject him. Victor created a monstrous and deformed being that was feared and rejected by the society; this made the society to shun away from the creature leaving him all alone. Both the creature and his creator were outcasts and lived in isolation from the rest of the
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.
His false portrayal and constant rejection never stopped him from adapting to society, evidently it did turn him down a dark and vengeful path. Just as it did for the Monster. When Frankenstein attempted to join society, he was rejected and chased out due to his differences, but he wasn’t as interested in joining the society as Grendel was. The monster was content staying away from humans until he happened upon the family of
