The monsters revenge on Frankenstein, drives him too to be full of hatred and need for vengeance because he destroyed everything good in his life. He feels as the death of his loved ones is his fault because he is the one that created the horrid creature in the first place (Brackett). “As time passed away I became more calm; misery had her dwelling in my heart, but I no longer talked in the same incoherent manner of my own crimes; sufficient for me was the consciousness of them” (Shelley 158). The monster wanted Victor to feel the same thing as him, lonely and sadness. The monsters revenge works, Victor becomes rejected by people and has nobody but himself.
Shelley addresses this question with the character Victor Frankenstein. One of the first things Victor is at fault for is his creation of Frankenstein in the first place. The monster would constantly cry, “Cursed, cursed creator! Why did I live? Why, in that instant, did I not extinguish the spark of existence which you had so wantonly bestowed?
This much is true for Victor’s failure to take responsibility for not only teaching his creation about life but also failure to take responsibility for the actions of his creation. “Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy… you shall be my first victim” (153). Victor’s knows that he is responsible for the death of William because he abandoned his creation and made the monster learn the hard way that he would not be accepted into society. But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman.
“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels.”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe.”(Shelley 158). Victor felt this way because his creation killed his brother and put the blame on his other loved one. The other thought Victor had about suicide was, “In that hour I should die and at once satisfy and extinguish his malice.”(Shelley 158).
In the film Mary Shelley 's Frankenstein the theme of mistreatment based off physical appearance is portrayed through Frankenstein 's monster.The society is often fearful of the creature and made judgements of his actions based solely off his disturbing physical appearance, without knowing his true characteristics. Even Victor, the man who created the fearful monster eventually abandons him because he is is appalled by his creation. He believed that by creating a being made of the finest parts, the end result would be of equal quality, but when the monster awakens, Victor can see what he has created and recognises that he has done wrong. The creation of an unnatural being, by unnatural means ultimately disgusts Victor. Victor 's rejection of his creation " is based upon the fact that he had worked night and day, at the expense of his own health and family, to "birth" his "son."
Since he is artificially created and does not look like a human, his creator Victor Frankenstein is repulsed by it and shuns him. This makes the monster feel unwanted, which is a very human response. In all efforts to reach his creator, the monster fails and to illustrate his anger, he starts his revenge by taking the lives of the relatives of Victor but also the people that fear
The knowledge of the creature’s life was shrouded in darkness from the rest of Frankenstein’s family and friends as he feared rejection, imprisonment, and death. However, Frankenstein is not the only one to blame for keeping secrets; the creature too had kept secrets, and threatened Frankenstein into creating him a ‘mate’ that would also be kept in the dark. The creatures intention for keeping himself secret was to not only observe humanity and learn from them, but to keep himself safe for he knew that he was ‘monstrous’ and would be rejected immediately for his ‘devilish’ appearance. Additionally, it was the creatures own knowledge and experience of society that he had chosen to stay hidden from the Delacey family instead of facing them. After many deaths caused by the creature, the end of the novel signifies a turning point in Frankenstein as he admits to creating the being and demands that it should be hunted down for its heinous crimes.
Shelley is nuanced in acknowledging that a belief in absolute good or evil is an unrealistic moral framework of the world and in defining key points of unexpected moral reversal amongst her characters, Frankenstein can also suggest Both The creature and Victor display monstrous and humane qualities. The creature 's own killing spree is unable to be overlooked and especially his premeditated attack on Elizabeth, where he explicitly threatened to be with her "on her wedding night" illustrates that the monster also demonstrated monstrous qualities. Additionally, Shelley presents the destructive nature of her otherwise victimised creature, through the black marks that his murder imprints on the necks of Henry and Elizabeth. This symbolic manifestation of the lasting scars of unfettered industrialism perhaps evoke resentment for the monster 's lack of control and similarly suggest that Both The creature and Victor display monstrous and humane qualities. Moreover, it is Victor who appears transiently capable of consideration for the consequences of his actions who, as he aborts a secondary female creation, questions "had I right... to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations?"
10)Victor’s dismay for the monster doesn’t mean he shouldn’t take responsibility and take care of his creation. 11) Victor spent plenty of time on the creature and the monster, larger and stronger than Victor petrified Victor which caused him to enter a state of illness caused by fear. 12) A person who lacks an identity such as Victor attempted to create a life which resulted in a hurried project and a scary creature. 13) Since Victor played God in the creation of the monster the monster had the right to despise Victor. (Shelley) 14) Since Victor denies the monster social acceptance, the monster is left to self educate himself which leads to isolation issues which cause violence.
DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS The role of victor is subverting the mythical norms in Frankenstein. Usually the creator is considered superior and perfect in his qualities however, in this novelette, the creator himself is flawed he fails to own his own creation. On the complete contrast, Mary Shelley portrays the Creature to be an isolated figure that spends his life desiring a companion and friendship. The Creature is so rejected by society, so abandoned by Victor and the people he come across, that he becomes filled with hatred towards everyone, particularly for the one who placed him into this terrible state in the first place – Victor. The first abandonment occurred right after the “birth” of the Creature.
