The name “monster” was given because of his anger filled retaliation towards Victor and his family. The monster was neglected from the second he was created and nobody ever gave him a chance to learn what life was about and help guide him. Imagine all of the wrong choices you would have made with no parents telling you what was right and what was wrong? Or people not only wanting to stay as far away from you as they can but also have another group of people that want to kill you because of your physical appearance. “Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.” (Shelley, 114) Not one person ever felt sympathy for the monster.
Everytime he saw people they would get scared of him. He was happy at first when he met new people but then got sad and angry when he saw people
When the creature was just brought to life he was confused about the surroundings around him. Victor never explained to the creature about his situation. Humans were afraid of the creature and did not want to be near him. The creature did not have a companion or any other human being that felt the same manner as him and grew each day more angry and full of revenge towards Frankenstein. Mary Shelley did have a husband but she felt that he was not a responsible companion and doing his share of the relationship.
The monster found himself lost and on his own in nature without anyone to help him, “I knew, and could distinguish, nothing;” (Shelley, 71) When someone is left with no information about themselves or how to do something they can feel helpless. This is exactly like how Frankenstein gave the monster no help on how to survive in the real world. Once you try to do something multiple times and still are not able to get it right, you begin to feel helpless and inferior to others. This can cause frustration because you feel like everyone understands what is going on around you, but you are clueless of your surroundings. Altogether the monster in Frankenstein feels betrayed by his creator, lonely while he was alone in the woods with no one around him and helpless when he was not able to understand what was going on in the world he was living in.
As his own creator had abandoned him and left him to face the reality of what society brings, he wanted to fit in and be loved and cared for but was instead was faced with ruthless attacks, and became a victim of abuse for his hideous features. Society no longer defines whom a person is by their internal traits, but instead their external features. Every minute and every second there someone out there in the world being judged for not meeting society standards and are treated as trash just like the creature had been treated and it, unfortunately, comes to a breaking point where people just act out. If physical traits were not an important factor in society would society act any differently towards the creature would it have prevented what the creature had
Bryan Stevenson never knew what could happen and he was full of fear of the possibility of jail time or death. Herbert Richardson was a mentally ill person who didn’t get the help he needed, and due to that, he killed little girl and was executed. During that time, the mentally ill lost most of its funding, and because of that, those who needed help couldn’t get it. Richardson and other mentally ill people didn’t have much money and lived in poverty. Without justice, the world would become nothing but poverty, despair and fear, and the only ones who wouldn’t be affected are the

“Somebody was fool enough to do it, but I took it off again. If calico an’t good enough for such a purpose, it isn’t good enough for anything. It’s quite as becoming to the body. He can’t look uglier than he did in that one.” Scrooge listened to this dialogue in horror.” People gather and talk (and even laugh) about how bad a person Scrooge was. The theme fits in here because, Scrooge was a grumpy, selfish person, and as a result, people don’t remember, or talk about him well after he’s dead.
Frankenstein creates the monster he neglects him. The monster has no idea of what is right and wrong so can we really be surprised that he killed someone? Although killing someone can hardly be vindicated it can be explained. The monster was rejected by everyone he met leaving him [moved right hand from left to right to show how monster’s pushed away] completely alone and isolated. [Point towards audience] Now how would that make you feel?
