Frankenstein wants to explore knowledge further, but his professor shares his doubts about whether Frankenstein could deliver results or not. Victor could only think about, “one thought, one conception, one purpose. So much has been done, exclaimed the soul of Frankenstein—more, far more, will I achieve; treading in the steps already marked, I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation” (33). Shelley uses visual imagery to depict Frankenstein’s future. Frankenstein claims he will “pioneer a new way,” and discover “the deepest mysteries of creation.” By this he means he will “unfold” the truth about creating life from death.
The novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley says a person is responsible for their actions if they do not weigh the possible consequences of their actions before making their final decision. Throughout the novel, Mary Shelley shows the consequences of actions that are done without proper thought beforehand. Victor Frankenstein wants to create life, he wants to be god, and his lust for this goal overtakes his common sense. Victor rushes into making his creature and then makes rash decisions which also contributes to his demise and the death of several of his close friends and family. The monster should be held responsible for his actions to a certain extent, however, his actions are influenced by Victor’s initial impetuous decisions.
Before committing to becoming a true killer, he attempts one last time to solve his desire for companionship, and seeks out Victor. When Victor eventually betrays him, the only person who would consider being nice to him, the monster finally snaps. Shelley was able to use her novel as a way to successfully point out what she saw as flaws or potential issues in the society of her time. She uses the scientific genre to provide a warning of things to come, and shows how feels common ideas about creation and morals are flawed with the monster’s interactions with humans around
Walton 's letters begin and end Shelley 's work by introducing the character of Frankenstein and also detailing the last moments of his life. While written in first-person like most of the book, his portion takes the form of letters to his sister, which lends itself to a slightly more personal style. In contrast with Frankenstein 's dramatic retelling of his life, Shelley writes Walton in a much lighter tone. Where Frankenstein 's narrative has a dark and dismal feel, Walton 's letters come across exactly as they ought to--as a man setting out on an adventure. These letters offer Shelley a platform from which to introduce the character of Victor Frankenstein.

Some whimper a tear, but can let out a little laugh, from a friend telling a joke, that gives a little glance of hope. Some spend every moment, suffering in agony trying to figure out how to get that loved one back, rather than realizing that one day they may meet again- on the other side. In volume one of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, her use of emotional diction, overwhelming imagery, and determined tone help to convey the message that Victor Frankenstein creates life, to help fill the void of his beloved mother’s death. Throughout volume one Victor Frankenstein cannot seem to shake the fact that his mother is dead. In Frankenstein’s mind, death is evil, and he is willing to do anything to defy God’s will, and fate to stop it.
The monster describes his first experience as being "endowed with perceptions and passions and then cast abroad for the scorn and horror of mankind" (Shelley 119). This is describing the monster's first awakening in which he knew nothing. Upon coming to life, the monster yearns to learn, feel, and communicate with others just like any other human would, but he was cast aside by Frankenstein to fend for himself. This use of diction
Immediately after the monster comes to life Frankenstein experiences grief and horror, causing him to abandon the monster and “[rush] out of the room” (Shelley 49). Immediately after, Frankenstein dreams that his kiss transforms Elizabeth into his dead mother (Shelley 49). Had Frankenstien never left his monster he would not have had this dream, thus Shelley foreshadows the horrific scenes to come as a result of Frankenstein's abandonment of his monster. By leaving his monster Frankenstein experiences a nightmare, foreshadowing the actual nightmare Frankenstein will live through for the rest of his life. Just a few pages later Shelley uses foreshadowing again when she has Frankenstien fall into a “nervous fever” (Shelley 53).
This further assists readers in understanding the state of mind of the creation and the reason behind his contradicting and sometimes confusing actions. Throughout the novel, Shelley references Genesis as Frankenstein creates his monster, as well as when the creation dwells on his emotions to persuade Frankenstein to help him. The creation starts off his existence by relating himself to Adam, but as he continues his cursed journey, he realizes he has become more like the fallen angel, lonely and cast away. When the creation speaks to Frankenstein for the first time, he exclaims what he has been through by telling Frankenstein, “Remember that I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed” after he was abandoned and forced to live on his own (Shelley 87). This is similar to Adam, who was created and then left to figure out life with no direction from his creator.
