Romantic period writer and author, Mary Shelley, depicts two characters in her soft science fiction novel, Frankenstein, that is exquisitely similar to those who “would find delight in solitude” as quoted by Aristotle in his Politics. In Shelley’s Frankenstein, the parallel of Aristotle’s two presented personas consists as Victor Frankenstein as a god and his horrific creation, the Monster, as a wild beast. Unambiguously, Victor is indeed the god of the Monster because he created him, consequently bringing the Monster into existence. The Monster too is merely a wild beast from the perception that he appears to be a frightening and violent creature.

While some readers may sympathize him because he, like a child being left by their parent, was abandoned by his creator, some may also despise him for killing William, a mere child. Of course, either of these opinion could be proven true based on the evidence that may be found in the book, however, no what stance is taken, it does not change the fact that the creature is indeed human. .Humans make mistakes, feel, and need to cared for, just like the creature, despite his appearance.
