He went on a tour with Clerval until he felt he was ready to begin making the female monster. Victor no longer had the same intense feeling he had when making the first fiend. This time, he was making it thinking about the fact that the monster told him “Oh! my creator, make me happy; let me feel gratitude towards you for one benefit (Page 99)!” Victor could do nothing but think if he brought this “creature” to life he would have to take care of it as a father would a child, but this was not the case. I guess looks do play a big role in any society.
Why did I live? Why, in that instant, did I not extinguish the spark of existence which you had so wantonly bestowed? I know not; despair had not yet taken possession of me; my feelings were those of rage and revenge. I could with pleasure have destroyed the cottage and its inhabitants and have glutted myself with their shrieks and misery.”(138) this results in the death of Frankenstein’s sister, Elizabeth, when his creation murders her. Does violence help one find what he is looking for?
FreeWriting In the article, “FreeWriting”, Mr. Elbow states,” next time you write, notice how often you stop yourself from writing down something you were gonna write down. Or else cross out what’s been written. “Naturally” you say, “it wasn’t any good”. I can definitely relate to the view Peter Elbow takes in his article. Starting an assignment is always the hardest step for me .Like in the very beginning, when you are digging for words to tie your point together; it’s always a struggle building that creative momentum.
The Creature also wanted revenge when Dr. Frankenstein would not create a companion for him! The Creature promised Dr. Frankenstein that he would regret his decision to not make him a counterpart. Sure enough the Creature fulfilled his promise by making him suffer by killing off Dr. Frankenstein’s best friend Clerval and his wife Elizabeth. They both lived and went out of their way to satisfy there longing for revenge. Even so, they both found solitude in the nature around
Freud argues on behalf of the monster because he interprets Victor's refusal to let the monster have a companion as a part of being mildly content. Victor convinces the real monster that he's going to build this new "companion" for him yet decides not to after considering reasoned ramifications at the costs of the lives of others he loves. Freud argues, "When any situation that is desired by the pleasure principle is prolonged, it only produces a feeling of mild contentment" (Freud 25). Victor is a monster in that he let's his own family die at the hands of the monster in order to make himself not look foolish after refusing to build the monster a woman-monster and to content himself with what is just in his eyes. Victor even travels for some time with his friend Clerval, ignoring his promised task to the monster in order to avoid further suffering.
Frankenstein said by all means he would chase the creature until one of them dies, but the creature on the other hand after murdering said," I have strangled the innocent as they sleep”. Regretting murdering, the creature wept at his mistakes. Frankenstein died unfulfilled, he had not done what he had hoped to. The creature stated, "I have murdered the lovely and the helpless," feeling awful for what he did and Frankenstein said that someone else might succeed in which he failed. Frankenstein from the start wanted the creature dead and as he was dying he still didn't give up stating that another may succeed.
In the book, Frankenstein shows his disgust of creating a mate for the creature and he goes on to talk about all the possible consequences. “Had I right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations?” this quote could directly apply to some of the problems of genetic modification. Frankenstein eventually comes to the conclusion that he does not have any right to create a second creature to satisfy the existing creature’s wishes as well as for sake of himself. By creating a second creature, it could possibly bring unintentional consequences to the future generations. Frankenstein felt so strongly against it that he stopped the creating and damned himself.
Frankenstein Sean Saenz Period 1 5/21/11 ''Ignorance is bliss, and knowledge is pain.'' This statement’s truth is argued in Frankenstein. Victor decides to bring a creature to life and that is something that god is supposedly only to be able to do. Victor soon realizes what he has done is a horrible mistake. He must then deal with the consequences unable to tell anyone what has happened and who really killed his friends and family.
Frankenstein From the moment that man started walking on Earth a question has always been asked, is man inherently good or evil? Is good or evil caused by nurture or nature? Is it a self-conscience decision we make within ourselves? The question has always been asked but, never answered for the simple fact that no one knows. As Frankenstein had finished his creation he saw that what he had created was a horrible monster that he would never want to see again but, the monster was brought into this world similar as infants were, innocent and unknowing.
In this essay, I will try to explore Victor Frankenstein’s characterization, in terms of his humanity considering his experiences, and his narration. My aim in trying to explore Frankenstein’s characterization is to show that although the appearance of the creature was resembled a monster; it could not be defined as monster. It cannot be denied that the creature behaved mercilessly and he was accused of murdering even though he was good hearted. However, the creature could not present his feelings and thoughts to anyone as his appearance was monstrous. So, Victor Frankenstein was guilty as he created the creature, and left him alone.
