Once Frankenstein destroys the other creature, because he finds himself stuck in the fear of what could happen after this new creation, the Monster comes after him and confront him. He makes sure to remind Frankenstein that he has the ability to make him more wretched than he already is, “Remember that I have power; you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you

First and foremost, the fictions teach us about the characters. In “Frankenstein” we are faced with a being created by a scientist. Both characters are shown as kind, misunderstood monsters, seeking knowledge. “The Outsider” creature sees no kindness, as the people run away from him.

The Blame Game Throughout the gothic novel, Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, blame is often thrown in two directions. Victor, who created the monster for his own superficial reasons in order to become famous and have the gratification for “conquering death”, is blamed by many. On the other hand, the monster could also be the one to blame, as it is his own destructive actions that bring grief and sorrow to many. From my point of view, there is a simple question and answer. Why did the monster feel like he needed to wreak havoc in order to get empathy and understanding for his own isolated feelings?
This quote explains the heavy resentment Victor Frankenstein held for the creature the second he had made him.

This vile reaction may also be held by members of today’s society if clones are created. To further explain, society often reacts with fear towards the unknown. In Frankenstein, not only did Victor Frankenstein despise the creature, but the villagers also reacted towards “the monster” with disgust.
