He will never be able to go back and reverse his ignorant actions, however through his punishment he is able to relieve his heart of his burden of guilt. The mariner has guilt because his actions hurt those around him and if he can prevent someone else from making those same bad decisions; he is able to possibly save other people’s lives. He is able to lighten his guilt for some time and by reliving his painful story, he can truly convince people to behave differently than he. Frankenstein also feels agony in reliving his story, however the horror he speaks of, is a true warning for Robert Walton. Walton explains the pain he saw Frankenstein suffer as he writes to his sister, “Sometimes, seized with sudden agony, he could not continue his tale; at others, his voice broken, yet
To compose the feathers of a human being is not for us to have. It is horrifying, and there are reasons why we should have that power. When Victor Frankenstein created this monster, he did not know how to handle it, he did not know to tolerate it, he did not know how to teach it, he did not know how to control it.Therefore, making him the real monster. His careless mistake and ignorance caused harm to his family and other town people. Victor was glutted with breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.
Though a naturally gentle being, Frankenstein’s creation gradually transforms into a bitter and vengeful existence that murders his creator’s beloved ones. His transformation into a blood lusting and seemingly remorseless murderer is a tragic instance. However, when the story comes to an end, readers learn of the internal conflicts he goes through. As his creator finally passes away, he expresses his immense suffering to Robert Walton, who has promised Frankenstein to destroy his creation. “You hate me, but your abhorrence cannot equal that with which I regard myself… Blasted as thou wert, my agony was still superior to thine, for the bitter sting of remorse will not cease to rankle in my wounds until death shall close them forever” (Shelley 276).
However, like Adam, he feels shunned by his creator, although he strives to be good. The reader can notice how Frankenstein displays many emotions: vengeance, love, compassion, and rejection, which a monster or animal could never have the capacity to feel or recognize. The creature can identify what pain is, by observing the cottagers, “They were not entirely happy. The young man and his companion often went apart and appeared to weep. I saw no cause for their unhappiness; but I was deeply affected by it.
Victor Frankenstein him self represent the ego the pursuer of his own wishes and ends, the experimenter who uses reason even whilst feeling guilty about it. Freud defines his concept in just these terms “The ego represents what may be called reason … in contrast to the id, which contains the passions” (Freud) even though Victor preferred isolation on people he is not happy and he blames his family for being far away from him and he blames them for the calamity that happened. Thus we can say that victor Frankenstein has an evil side in his personality, and we can say that doppelganger is what runs victor life. Victor is the true monster of the story and he himself realize that, he realize his vanity and maybe he tries to warn his people by his isolation but it ended by the murder of them all. Then he tries to kill the monster after it ends by killing all his family, but the only way of killing the monster and destroying his is by his own death, as they are one person one cannot survive without the other.
Frankenstein fails to properly nurture his creation’s development. Consequently, the monster developed to show his hatred to other humans. The creature or monster was a successful experiment created by Frankenstein. Repulsed by his own owner, the monster had to fend for himself. Nature was the only thing that supported him.
The creature comes to understand that the anguish endured and the joy he was deprived of was because of his creator, Victor Frankenstein, and he seeks revenge upon him and other privileged individuals in society. During his time in Geneva, the creature captures a young boy with the intention of educating him as his own companion. When he comes to know that the boy, William Frankenstein, is a relative of his enemy, the creature grasped his throat until he lay dead. The monster becomes fixated on tormenting and destroying Victor Frankenstein, who is the cause of his misery, and states that the murder of William is just one of the many (Shelley 126-127). He then leaves the spot where the murder was committed and searches for a secluded hiding place and he finds a barn.
His quest for absolute knowledge and power will eventually end his own ruin. Frankenstein created a Creature that later resented him for his creation. The unnamed Creature believes that Frankenstein should have to pay for the damage he has done. The Creature and Frankenstein develop a contrasting relationship throughout the novel and end in somewhat compassionate relationship. Frankenstein created a Creature out of recycled parts which resulted in the creature not being highly appealing.
After bringing his creation to life Victor Frankenstein is disordered by what he has created due to his appearance and abandons the monster. He revokes the idea that he was even the creator and the monster is left with the realization from the start that Victor was disgusted by him, making it evident when Frankenstein expresses "He might have spoken, but I did not hear; one hand was stretched out, seemingly to detain me, but I escaped, and rushed downstairs" (Shelley, 59), by leaving the monster to provide nothing for him, the monster is left to continue on his own and fend for himself. The monster was brought to life with a mind of a newborn and had no understanding of the life he was just brought into. He was formed through behavioral views and experiences due to the lack of education and learning the morals of society. To society standards his physical appearance was not accepted and created a feeling of confusion within the monster causing him hateful feelings towards humans after being shown cruel
The act of losing Victor begins his true descent into insanity as his body and mind feels with hate. Victor also has a very important relationship with the monster. The monster has no relationship with Victor besides a need for revenge. When Victor created the monster, he looked on him in disgust. He abandoned his creation after looking upon the creation with horror.
