While Victor’s obsession is evident through his action during his time spent working on the monster, his feelings later on in the novel show the transformation of his character from obsessive to regretful. His feeling of remorsefulness is portrayed after seeing the monster come to life. Victor’s feeling toward the monster during his first few moments of life show his change from obsessive to regretful.

Gregor Samsa’s Isolation in Frank Kafka’s The Metamorphosis All throughout Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, a constant theme of isolation shows through the main character, Gregor Samsa, who one morning spontaneously transforms into an insect. Kafka displays a motif of solitude from the beginning of the story through Gregor’s desire to stay behind in his room and not go to work or go about any of his daily responsibilities. From the realization of his transition to a vermin, Gregor’s isolation is even more evident because of rejection he receives from his family members who do not understand what happened to him. The immediate presentation of isolation in the story suggests a foreshadowing of Gregor’s further rejection and seclusion resulting in
This is weird because Walton only sees him after Victor dies even though the monster had existed the whole time but was just never seen which doesn’t make sense for the simple fact that throughout the story Victor saw the monster .

Unlike natural creation by God, followed by nurture and love, Victor was cold and evasive. Victor took no responsibility for the unnatural being he pushed forth upon the world.

Due to Victor Frankenstein evading the scene to which the monster was created the monster began seeking out Victor in return. Victor waited and thought “as it foced it way through the window-shutters, I beheld the wretch-the miserable monster whom I had created. He held up on the curtain of the bed; and his eyes if eyes they may be called were fixed on me. His jaws opened and he muttered some inarticulate sounds, while a grin wrinkled his cheeks.
