Victor also allows Justine to die for the murder of his younger brother because he’s afraid of what people will think. “My tale was not one to announce publicly; it’s astounding horror would be looked upon as madness by the vulgar”(83). He’s more concerned with what will happen to him, someone who actually had something to do with William’s death, than to Justine, who is completely innocent. Lastly, the monster says he will leave Victor and his family alone if Victor makes him a female companion, but he can’t even do that. “I thought with a sensation of madness on my promise of creating another like to him, and trembling with passion, tore to pieces the thing on which I was engaged”(180).
Due to Victor 's selfishness, readers feel sorry for his creation. Frankenstein created the creature so he could manipulate the power of life, not to learn from the experience. He is so immersed in his studies, fascinated by the creation of life. He studies what the human body is made up of and how it falls apart. Victor completely disengages from the world when away at school after his mother dies of scarlet fever.
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
The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster. The reason for these characters deaths is in Foster's words “to put stress on other characters.”(90) These deaths cross a breaking point in Victor's mind. When Victor has nobody left in his life he makes up his mind to kill the monster in an act of violent passion. He sets out to hunt the monster, but gets sick and dies on his journey.
In the novel Frankenstein, the author Mary Shelley shows the everlasting power of nature by limiting the knowledge man can learn about it. Throughout the book there are many times when Victor yearns for nature in order to heal him from the misery and violence in his life. This misery and violence are caused by his determination to learn more about the natural world. The monster Victor creates, due to his loneliness, defies the unwritten rules of nature and exemplifies the supernatural aspect of the novel. Victor’s mood completely shifts when he is around nature and he instantly feels calmer when near it.
While he did kill Victor’s brother, this all may have been avoided if Victor did not abandon his own creation. “Nothing in human shape could have destroyed that fair child. He was the murderer! I could not doubt it. The mere presence of the idea was an irresistible proof of the fact.” (60.)
Similarities in the characters ' solitude, affinities toward nature, and pursuits of both knowledge and revenge are found throughout the course of the story. After analyzing of each of these factors, one discovers that the true monster in Frankenstein is Victor. The events that transpired were entirely Victor 's fault. If Victor did not violate nature by reanimating that which is already dead, none the terrible events would have happened. The main evidence toward Victor being the monster is in the fact that he completely abandons the creature.
In my opinion, most of this violence was kind of Victor 's fault. Victor had promised the creature a female creature to be with him, because the creature was lonely. Victor couldn 't keep his promise and hilled the female creature in front of him. The creature was furious because he killed the only thing that could 've made him happy. The creature stated, 'I go, but I will be with you on your wedding night ' '.
He just wants his father to love him. He wants someone to understand what he has felt his entire life. None of what happened is the monsters fault. He was never showed the correct way to live and not only that he was never once showed any love or kindness. No one should ever be killed for the way they look.
