The creature was never named, cared for, and even loved. Appearance is a major theme in the novel because that is why he was never named, Victor was disgusted by his looks and abandoned him. “Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even YOU turned from me in disgust?” (insert chapter) The creature was shocked when he first saw how wretched and hideous he was. He was watching the beautiful De Lacey family, and was horrified when he saw his appearance.
Unlike Victor Frankenstein’s birth, the creature searched for glory from a beginning of loneliness and a craving for love from the humans he wished to be. Even though he was unfamiliar with the typical childhood when he was first ‘awakened’, the monster knew he had “no money, no friends, no kind of property”, and he wished to change that (128). He wanted what everyone else got freely, and even with this unfairness, he tried desperately to earn these ‘normal’ assurances he didn’t already own—like acceptance. When the creature was furiously denied these privileges, he turned away from humanity and their prejudice and looked to his own race, demanding a similar undead wife from Frankenstein. “‘You must create a female for me with whom I can live in the interchange of those sympathies necessary for my being.
Every action the monster takes reflects back on Victor, the one who invented him and then abandoned him at birth. Victor realizes how “[he] loved [Henry] with a mixture of affection and reverence that knew no bounds, yet [he] could never persuade [himself] to confide in [Henry]” (Shelley 55). The monster Victor created is pushing him away from Henry since Victor left his creation feeling useless, just like an archetypal evil-doer would to anyone. Victor is keeping his monster a secret as well as everything he knows about “awakening the dead”. This doesn’t seem like the smartest thing to do especially when there are people who’re oblivious to the monster roaming the streets.

The story’s about the creation of the monster, most readers will think it is Victor’s creation, however the transition of Victor Frankenstein throughout the book is the prove that he is the real monster in this story. As the novel goes, the peruser understands that the genuine terrible activities are made by Viktor Frankenstein: first he rejects his own creation, at that point he basically charges to overlook what has happened, then his brother is killed by the monster and he gives a blameless young lady a chance to get hanged assuming liability for this death. Victor 's outrage towards the monster he created is by all accounts his very own irritation towards himself as he understands the time he has squandered, the friendships and relationships that he ruined just to create something that will ruin his life.

“‘Shall each man,’ cried he, ‘find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and I be alone? I had feelings of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn,’” (Shelley, 20.11). Victor denies the monster humanity because he is appalled by his features, and that’s what makes Victor the true monster. He made early judgement on who the monster was before the monster could speak because he was terrifying, and society had made him believe that if it were different it was dangerous. Even when the monster promised to leave society forever if he were only given someone to love, to feel normal, the idea that anything outside their realm of societal norms being allowed to continue existing was just too much for Victor.
He felt he had created an “ugly monster” and that he had made a mistake. The countenance of the creature immediately scared off Victor even though it was his creation. “Oh! no mortal could support the horror of that countenance.” (Shelley 48) Frankenstein even admit to his refusal of support simply because of the appearance the creature has. Not only is it Frankenstein’s fault that the creature has the appearance of a “monster”, he is also guilty of leaving the creature to its own devices without any guidance.
