Joyce Carol Oates states in her essay Frankenstein Fallen Angel, “…he (Victor) seems blind to the fact that is apparent to any reader – that he has loosed a fearful power into the world, whether it strikes his eye as aesthetically pleasing or not, and he must take responsibility for it.” Victor is unwilling to care for the creature, because he finds him dreadful, so he takes the easy way out and leaves the creature to take care of himself, which he is not capable of doing. Victor’s obsession to act superhuman blinded him while he was creating the creature because he had a desire to assemble the creature from makeshift parts so that the creature would be hideous and therefore inferior to Victor. The creature is formed as an ugly being so that it is easier for Victor to walk away from. Victor is willing to abandon his own creation because he views the creature as a, “… filthy mass that moved and talked” (136). Victor is stirred by his work, but not in a positive manner.
"(Shelly 94). The monster born from the use of other people’s limbs and organs, despise his “beautiful” master because he is born perfect. Due to this imperfection the monster is sentenced to solitude upon creation. The creature that is Grendel and Frankenstein’s Monster are more “human” than actual human beings. They were curious about their own creation, both had suffered from loneliness, and had suffered from complete isolation from the rest of civilization.Grendel and the monster only want socialization with other is that too much to
For instance, Frankenstein is now apologetic for his creation, because “ the beauty of the dream [has] vanished” Frankenstein looks a the creature with such “breathless horded disgust,” he no longer wish for creation to exist (Shelley 70). Frankenstein feel s ambulant because of his actions, he now regrets the making of his creation. Victor Frankenstein is now feared of the hideous creature he has created, no longer wants the recognition of creating this creature, this creature isn’t even socially accepted because of his appearance. As a result, Frankenstein in the real monster of the novel, because he has regrets for the created a creature without facing the fact that it would eventually have to socially interact with others. The actions of Frankenstein creating this frightening creature, created a wretched outcome, because the creature was overwhelmed with such hate that the creature had killed people whom Victor Frankenstein cared for.
One last reason why the monster does not deserve to live with the rest of society is because he does not know true justice. Victor promised the Monster he will make him a female companion just as ugly, so she will like the monster, but, Victor realized what he was
Surely, he feared that the monster’s species will populate and wipe out humanity, but on the other hand the monster wanted a mate so that he would not be alone. For example, Adam was a lonely man and needed a female. God gave him what he needed, both were happy until they were doomed. Victor plays God and the monster plays Adam. The difference is Victor did not give this creation what he desired, obviously.
Grendel in the novel is more similar than different to "the monster" in Frankenstein because Grendel in the novel is miserable, "the monster" in Frankenstein is alone, and Grendel in the novel realizes who he is or what he wants. In the beginning of the story Grendel doesn’t understand why his mother and he have to hide from the men. He has no one to talk to and feels like his mom hates him because she is always ignoring him and doesn't talk much. Grendel feels miserable as if there was no point in living. "The world is a pointless accident .
Victor Frankenstein has made a beast, a "despised fiend" (Shelley 90) who torments him all through Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. For sure, the animal confers a few loathsome acts, which drives Frankenstein to seek after him into the Arctic. However the animal does not rouse a similar dread or repugnance in the peruser; rather he earns sensitivity. While Frankenstein may can't help disagreeing, the peruser associates with the creature since he is disengaged from the world and-shockingly has a delicate heart. The creature is surely not exemplary.
Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey. His brother (the narrator) tried to kill him as he saw him an unbearable disappointment and his father had built him a mahogany coffin. For instance, “It was I who renamed him [...] Crawling backwards made him look like a Doodlebug, […] because nobody expects much from someone called Doodle.” Society’s attentiveness is predominantly towards the aspects of and in this story Doodle’s impairment seemed to have negative impacts on him that the society has caused.
The creation’s deviance leads him to have violent thoughts. Initially, the only deviant part about the creation is his looks; however, the later scene where the creation comes into contact with William tells the reader otherwise. When Victor abandons the creation, the creation becomes extremely lonely. “If, therefore, I could seize him and educate him as my companion and friend, I should not be so desolate in this peopled earth” (Shelley). The creation spots William, Victor’s brother, and he is basically kidnapping him; however, he does not understand that his deviant behavior is wrong since he has had no “parental guidance”.
There so call “father” is a villain wanting to steal the moon. The whole reason he turned to a villain anyway was because of his mother. He also gets his villainy from his mother because she was kind of mean and evil since she wasn’t impressed by anything he did and it also seemed as if she didn’t love him. From Gru being neglected and him not feeling like he was loved certainly hurt him really sad inside. Gru is certainly wanting to prove himself and he sure did except he proved how bad of a villain he is.
