The monster may have murdered the people but its ironic because Victor was trying to kill him. The monster points out that “you accuse me of murder, and yet you would, with a satisfied conscience, destroy your own creature” (Shelley 88). It’s easy to blame the monster for all of this, and it may look like that on the outside because he actually murdered the people but Victor has equal responsibility. Victor his creator abandoned him and left him alone in the world. The melancholy and lonely monster realized “ he too can create desolation” (Shelley 132) toward Victor.
Beginning with Victor abandoning the creature at birth, the series of revenge and hatred-filled events begin to occur as both attempt to find justice and retribution. The creature stole the lives of everyone beloved by Victor, and Victor stole the monster’s chance at happiness by abandoning him. As the characters continuously harm each other, their isolation increases as well as their sanity. In the end, numerous family members perish, Victor Frankenstein dies of physical exhaustion, and the creature conveys his desire to
Because of the monsters endowment to revenge, many lives were lost. But the monster was not satisfied with his wrongdoings, instead, he regrets his ambition of evil. After seeing Victor dead on the ship he cried and said, “I should have wept to die; now it is my only consolation. Polluted by crimes and torn by the bitterest remorse, where can I find rest but in death”(p 198)? Obsession was also the monsters downfall, he became a ruthless killer for the sole purpose of
The monster then decides to take the life of Victors companion. He does this for revenge as that is the one thing Victor refuses the monster. The reason for these characters deaths is in Foster's words “to put stress on other characters.”(90) These deaths cross a breaking point in Victor's mind. When Victor has nobody left in his life he makes up his mind to kill the monster in an act of violent passion. He sets out to hunt the monster, but gets sick and dies on his journey.
But there is a conflict and this is that there is no one of his kind in the world; and because of this he becomes very sad. The creature confronts Victor and asks him to make another creature similar to him but female, and Victor begins to make another creature but stops in the middle of his project. The creature finds this out and begins to terrorize Victor, the creature gets Victor's attention by killing a child and then killing Victor's best friend. When the creature killed Victor's best friend Victor had known what had to be done. The last thing that made the creature have full control over Victor was that he killed his newly wed wife.
He’s being tracked down by his scent and nowhere to escape because of that scent. Rainsford is put on a trail just like an animal is hunted like their in a maze. He’s being tracked down by his scent and nowhere to escape because of that
When telling Victor everything he experienced the creature says, “Inflamed by pain, I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind” (138); meaning that all these events he experienced mold him to be wicked and spiteful. Without human interaction, he becomes an actual monster, when he at first only craved company and longed a friend yet all he received was mistreatment and insults. When he saw Victor’s younger brother he thought “I could seize him, and educate him as a companion and friend…” (138), but sadly the boy was prejudice against his looks and insulted him, and shortly reveled he was a Frankenstein and the monster killed him out of spite. This shows the importance of social connections and just having someone to talk to and lean on. In a way, it is societies responsibility to care for the misfortune and treat them with not only respect but with kindness.
He has a hatred for Frankenstein and how he left him all alone. This would be similar to leaving a baby all alone and making it fend for himself when they do not know the basic needs to live. In addition of this Frankenstein became a threat to others because of his sheer size. The monster was traveling to find Frankenstein and once he reaches town he finds a little boy; the boy tells the monster that his brother is Frankenstein and the creature kills him out of hatred for his creator. The boy has to pay the price of death due to his brother’s wrong decisions and actions and frames Justine by putting the locket in her dress.
His hatred for Victor was so intense, it fueled a mad desire for revenge. On page 102, when the monster learns that William is a Frankenstein, he says “you belong then to my enemy,” having never actually met Victor in person. He hated his creator to such a degree that he was willing to do anything to hurt him. The monster was right, however, in hating Victor because of Victor’s terrible treatment and disposition towards the monster. The first wrong that Victor committed was making the monster unbearably ugly.
