In Frankenstein, the Monster, is created by Victor Frankenstein. Victor creates the Monster and hates him, because of this the Monster only sees hate and learns to hate. Victor has moral corruption as well because he has a very mundane outlook on life and this dictates how he reacts to the Monsters plot for revenge.

After a littlun, Percival, tells everyone “the beast comes out of the seas,” (94). the boys argue about what the beast is and where it comes from.
