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.
His eagerness caused him to create a monster that would soon kill and destroy everything he has ever loved in life. Victor grew up a privileged boy and ironically that privilege is what has ultimately doomed him. His ignorance caused him to lack any attention to detail, his youth and spoiled upbringing had caused him to become inhumane and take for granted the purest things in life. Victors disregard for sentient life caused him to act out of fear. A type of fear that comes with stepping into the unknown, and not knowing which way to
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.
In Frankenstein, the monster lives in constant isolation. Anyone who the monster comes into contact with fears him. His own creator, Victor Frankenstein, runs aways in horror after creating the monster. The monster has nobody to interact with, so he asks Frankenstein
As the monster stood in their village, they had never seen such a monstrosity, so they reacted with fear. Prejudice towards the monster is strong in that humans create stereotypical judgments about others appearances. The monster’s appearance is one who is eight feet, and could be from a horror movie
In Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, victor and his creature share many characteristics although they are opposing forces because of their differences. Robert Walton writes a letter to his sister he writes on how the strange narrative told him about his journey of rescuing a man from an ice drift and his ship was stuck and surrounded by ice. The man he rescued was Victor Frankenstein a wealthy man whom the father was well-known victor studied science how he may bring the dead alive, he discovers a way to make a creature from the grave out of human cadavers. After the success of his project, the creature eyes open victor became very frighten by his monstrous looking creation. He ran from the lab and became ill. during the illness of victor,
We see how the Creature developed his own morality based on how society treated him, the cottagers he viewed, and the literature he viewed. In Frankenstein readers see Mary Shelley develop the concept of morality throughout the story within the characters by displaying the relationship between Victor and the Creature. Frankenstein introduces the main character, Victor Frankenstein, relatively early and we learn of his early childhood. He started as an innocent child fascinated by science, always striving to learn more and more. (Insert quote from childhood here).
.Following Victor’s description of his creation, he begins to describe the horribleness of the creature and his abhorrent emotions and feelings he must endure. Inevitably, Victor falls ill with some mysterious sickness due to his uncertainty of the creature he previously created. All of his mental suffering occurring in the month of November, the completion of fall. Further on, after William and Justine have been killed, Victor decides to leave, “It was the latter end of September that I again quitted my native country” (Shelley 166). This time of departure enables the reader to foreshadow some negative action to occur.
“I was seized by remorse and the sense of guilt, which hurried me away to hell of intense tortures such as no language can describe.” (Frankenstein 101) Frankenstein is a novel written by Mary Shelley. This quote was said by Victor Frankenstein explaining how he felt about Justine’s trial after the death of William. Once Justine’s trial ended in her death, Victor became very guilty because he knew that this all started because of his passion and ignorance that led to the creation of his dream. His guilt made him flee from his family and separate himself from society. While on his expedition he ran into his creation which made him seem more monster than human.
After these series of letters, the perspective changes to Victor’s point of view. The stranger, is learned as the name of Victor Frankenstein, who is the main character of the book. It explains his life as a child. Victor then goes off to college and studies life. Victor starts working on his new creation, and thinks he is almost done.
After creating it and completing the deal, he tears the new creation apart causing the monster to be forever alone. This also causes the monster to promise that he will be there on Victor’s wedding night. So, as the story presents, the monster’s intentions were mostly misunderstood. The monster never learned how to love or be loved. It is said that love is an equalizer for the darkest of places of the human consciousness, which includes the most monstrous; this is
The creature can be viewed sympathetically in several ways. The creature is a victim of his environment and it is not his fault he was created and abandoned by his creator due to his scary looks leaving him scared, homeless, all alone to fend for himself. “I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property”;” I was hideously deformed and loathsome” (Shelly, 107). The creature was born in a world that wasn’t accepting of him because he was judge by his scary appearance and not recognized as a person. People would be afraid and run away from him.
That body is a monster. He is ugly and big. He has an incomplete body. Victor is scary of a monster. So, he leaves and escapes from a monster.
