Victor Frankenstein the main character in Frankenstein was going through depression, bipolar, and anxiety throughout the story because things in his life were going terrible for him. Victor never had a happy moment in his life after the creation of his monster. Once the monster became angry he tried controlling Victor into creating a love for him. Victor didn’t want to because he was afraid that he would create a violent species and they would take over. After the monster found out he wasn’t doing it, the monster wanted to kill Victors loved ones and not Victor.
The monster on the other hand had known only loneliness from the second he opened his eyes. The monster learns through painful rejection that he will never find companionship because humans are unable to see past his ghastly appearance and in anger tears away one of Frankenstein’s many companions.

Victor’s actions show us that he despised his creation. What he didn’t realize was that his actions in trying to carry out his plan, were actually killing him slowly, because he was not capable of fulfilling this knowledge correctly. Towards the end of the novel, the only thing Victor cared about was getting revenge on his creation for killing his loved ones. Victor stated, “I was hurried away by fury; revenge alone endowed me with strength and composure; it molded my feeling… otherwise delirium or death would have been my portion.” The only thing keeping Victor from dying was getting revenge. It controlled him, and that’s what made him a monster.
