If the creations are indeed “more human, than human” what defines our humanity? The replicants are portrayed as the violent antagonist only once compared to the humans (Tyrell) do they become admirable. While the death of Tyrell confronts the audience the close up on Roy's face shows the agony he is in. He doesn’t enjoy the killing but believes that his father must pay for his sins, pay for all the pain he has cause to him and his friends. Such violence is really only the cause of Roy’s pain, his emotions controlling his actions conflicts with our prejudice.
This Creation was seen as a big scary monster that would kill you if he even laid eyes on you. Although he was some-what a normal human being, he was just not educationally advanced like we are. If you think of him as being like a caveman it is easier to understand that Frankenstein’s Creation was, well let’s just say the lights were on but nobody was home. That would be a kinder way of describing the Creation. The people where scared of him because he seemed violent, he wasn’t violent he was just afraid and didn’t understand.
So, Victor Frankenstein was guilty as he created the creature, and left him alone. Victor caused Frankenstein’s monstrous appearance and his appearance resulted in misunderstandings about the creature. The main point is that the guilty one of these misunderstandings, the creature’s appearance and his exclusion from society was Victor Frankenstein, the creator. Particularly by focusing on the given passages 15, 16, and19, I will try to show how far away Victor is from humanity. Before Frankenstein creates the creature, Frankenstein goes graveyards to collect dead body parts with an aim to accomplish his ambition.
When Jack is not accepted by all of the boys as the new leader he becomes angry and violent against those who disagree with him. The creation of Victor Frankenstein is sensitive, very intelligent, and wishes to interact with the human race. However, because he is very hideous he becomes shunned by the humans because he represents the unusual and unknown. Because he is shunned and rejected by the world the monster seeks revenge on Victor Frankenstein "Cursed, cursed creator! Why did I live?
But the event that made him turn away from the rituals and DaFheg was when the baron and his men trapped and kidnapped a family that lived on a dairy farm. The father had been slain by DaFheg, and the mother and daughter were being held in the dungeons. But after obtaining a hammer and chisel, the mother managed to chip out a hole in the cell. The daughter escaped through it, but Peter found out. The mother was killed, and Peter tracked down the little girl.
It was given life and this in itself is already a major gift from Victor, but then going ahead and asking for a partner is absolutely arrogant and unethical. “My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects. This being you must create” (133) is what the creature said to Victor. The monster speaks to Victor as if it is entitled to have a partner; with arrogance. The monster acts with extreme selfishness and from that comes unethical behaviour and actions.
What if this creature had a taste for killing? No. Victor could not finish this creation. After Victor denied the creature his only request, the creature was livid. It responded “Slave, I before reasoned with you, but you have proved yourself unworthy of my condescension.
For the overall story, this hints to all the readers that, even after being proven wrong, Victor will continue his bias. His lack in thought process is the original cause of his own pain and suffering. Before the completion of the creature, what is seen to be the evil, which is his stubbornness, in Victor causes not only causes pain
Depriving a person of his will to live is the same, if not worse than killing that person. If murder is illegal under all circumstances, then torture should be illegal. Torture is unimaginable and permanent scaring of the body and soul (Dieringer). Torture is inhumane because it severely injures human bodies to a degree that can never be fixed. Torture has tremendous negative physical effects on the human body.
I decided I was going to get revenge and I didn't think about anything in that moment, I only thought about my revenge. I fled to the Plainpalais and when my eyes saw William playing he seemed so peaceful but, they are all the same, they all think the same, they all hold some evil within their blood. Within a second I was no longer the creature that tried to love and be loved by all, I was the creature that people would fear the most! I would care for no one, as they didn't care for me. My revenge would be on Frankenstein; for my revenge is a daemon destined to kill.
