After realizing that his diabolical plan to torture Victor has now led to Victor’s own death, the creation pities himself on how he will never satiate his own desires for companionship. The creation perceives that although he crushed Victor’s hopes, he did not satisfy his own, thus causing the creation to view himself as an abhorred wretch. The creation tells Walton, “The completion of my demoniacal design became an insatiable passion...When I run over the frightful catalogue of my sins, I cannot believe that I am the same creature whose thoughts were once filled with the sublime and the transcendent visions of the beauty and the majesty of goodness...he could not sum up the hours and months of misery which I endured wasting in impotent passions”
He was planning on going back to his hometown Geneva when he receives a letter from his father which said that his little brother William was murderer. Someone else was accused of the death and is executed even though the monster was the one who killed him. Victor goes to the mountains where he meets with the monster and the monster begs him to build a partner for him so he can be with someone. At first Victor refuses to do so and after a while he accepts to create a female partner for the creature, but after seeing what he is creating he destroys the female creature and the monster enraged swears that he will take revenge. Then Victor gets marry and his wife gets killed by the monster.
In the years since Frankenstein’s release many readers of the famous narrative have come to regard Victor Frankenstein with little affection. They cite his selfish and reckless behavior, which frequently cause the misery which torments him. However, Victor’s self-centered nature, goes beyond simply a flaw of character, it is indicative of a deeper affliction, narcissistic personality disorder; or NPD. NDP is characterized by an over inflated sense of self, beyond what is developmentally appropriate. Classic symptoms of NDP “are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration.
Without thinking of the consequences and preparing. He quickly heads back to marry his wife. At this point in the monster has committed to enacting revenge on Victor in someway. Only deepening his losses, and driving him closer and closer to madness. After Victor marries his wife he retires with her to a cabin, where he awaits the monster; who he believes will be there to kill him.
Frankenstein, is a book that tells the tale of a man who creates life, a feat only reachable by mother nature, and is possibly this man's worst decision ever. Mary Shelley wrote the book this way for a reason. She goes into how this creature is able to uproot his life, y ending many others. 198 years later, we are faced against very similar issues. Something that many modern scientists are faced with today are whether or not they should do something, regardless if they can or not.
You are my creator, but I am your master;—obey!” (Shelly, 192). Another time the loss of power can be seen when the monster threaten Victor to be careful on his wedding night as he will be around. Although he was worrying about his death but monster played a different card and killed his wife, Elizabeth. This tells us that even after meeting face to face with monster, the one that he created by himself, he cannot predict the outcome created by monster. He has the mind of his own now.
The creature in Frankenstein once said “This death will carry despair to him, and a thousand other miseries shall torment him”. The creature started of trying to be friends with humans until all they did was try to kill him so now he seeks vengeance. this coincides with locke's theory by showing how he came in the world a blank slate, but the hatred from the humans turned him evil. The creature also said “My spirit will sleep in peace,or if it thinks, it will not surely think thus, Farewell”. the creature killed his creator and now he feels bad for taking away life from the one who gave him life, so he decides to kill himself.
During, the time of Elizabeth’s illness Mrs. Frankenstein can hardly abandon her favorite child and continues to serve to her needs. As Elizabeth recovers Mrs. Frankenstein too fall ill however, she does not recover and to the family's dismay she passes away. At the time of Mrs. Frankenstein’s death, she wished for only one thing, for Victor and Elizabeth to be wed. Mrs. Frankenstein asks for this because it would be the “INSERT QUOTE1 HERE” ( only thing to console father quote). Victor and Elizabeth’s peculiar life events can only be used to explain Victors Submerged hostility for Elizabeth. Elizabeth was Victor’s cousin, sister, playmate, mother figure for Victor’s siblings and wife.
Desolate and desperate for the affections of another, it led the creature to make irrational decisions from rage. I am not stating or arguing that the creature was innocent in the crimes he committed, or that he was not aware of what was occurring as he gripped to his victims’ throats and ceased their breathing. I am simply voicing that he is not the only being with guilt. Near the end, he no longer desired for all of society’s acceptance, but merely one person’s. His entire tale, as it is now told, could have been wholly different and avoidable if he would have received what he longed
His hatred for Victor was so intense, it fueled a mad desire for revenge. On page 102, when the monster learns that William is a Frankenstein, he says “you belong then to my enemy,” having never actually met Victor in person. He hated his creator to such a degree that he was willing to do anything to hurt him. The monster was right, however, in hating Victor because of Victor’s terrible treatment and disposition towards the monster. The first wrong that Victor committed was making the monster unbearably ugly.
