The Evil Created By Frankenstein In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein animates a being made of grotesque human body parts. The hideous appearance of his creation gave the creature no chance of fitting into society or ever being accepted. Throughout the story, the monster who has a “natural tendency to kind feelings” (Bloom 100) becomes violent and aggressive after being rejected and isolated. The creature is wronged many times by his irresponsible creator who abandons him within the first seconds of his life and then refuses to provide him with a friend. These mistakes of Victors, among others, are what cause the creature’s evil actions in the end.
During Shelley’s time period, females were considered to be inferior to men, but Shelley shows how men actually feared a woman’s power. For example, when Frankenstein was creating the female mate for his monster, he started thinking about the consequences of having a female version of his monster in the world. He thought that she can create a whole new race of them and that she would not listen to the male monster and do things her own way. These were horrifying to Victor and all of these were thoughts of fear. Frankenstein feared the power of the female and her capabilities.
Or rather, stay, that I may trample you to dust! And, oh! That I could, with the extinction of your miserable existence, restore those victims whom you have so diabolically murdered!” (M. Shelly, Frankenstein, Chapter 10) Frankenstein’s reasons for creating the monster was that he was so utterly obsessed with life itself he wanted to create a being that would never die out of his mother’s memory so no one else felt his pain, So mainly the reasons for him rejecting the monster is because it was nothing he expected and especially creating it out of his mother’s memory he felt the need to reject
This is a cruel and evil thing that victor has done. The monster responds by saying, “Shall each man…find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and be alone? I had feeling of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn” (110). After several more back and forth between the creature and Victor the monster threatens to destroy Victor by destroying those around him. Again this may seem like the creature is the
Victor and the monster in Mary K. Shelly's Frankenstein are both dealing with this sort of half demon, half human internal battle, while heartache surrounds them. This twisted Gothic tale explores the relationship between creator and creation, and the universal need for love and acceptance from one's parents and society. Victor acts basically for his own interest and wants to see his name glorified by humanity. To achieve this goal, he makes extensive use of his knowledge of natural philosophy and Chemistry. He even foreshadows his own fate by saying “Natural philosophy is the genius that regulated my fate” (Shelly, 46).
The creature wanted revenge so on the day of victors wedding he killed his soon to be wife. This made Victor understand how the creature felt, but he did not care he wanted the same revenge on the creature and swore to find and destroy the creature. In my opinion Victor should have created a mate for Frankenstein. It was unfair to the creature to let him be alone. There were some risks for Victor if he was going to create a mate but it would be well worth
Mary Shelley’s work of literature, Frankenstein, conveys her negative attitudes towards scientific issues of her time. With the use of Victor Frankenstein and the monster, Shelley is able to depict that the curiosity of science leads to negative impacts in society. Frankenstein is portrayed as a man full of interest in natural philosophy. Although his eager learning and experimenting for science is unlimited, he builds a monster that causes low credibility, betrayal and conviction for Frankenstein and those surrounding him. Fame being one of Frankenstein’s prime motive for creating a superhuman portrays that he does not realize his motive will cause low credibility.
In asking Victor to create a life partner, the monster dreams of finally finding someone to belong, granting him purpose in life. When his last hope of happiness and companionship is destroyed by Victor, who again betrays the monster, are crushes his feelings of undeniable acceptance. The monster reasons, “here was none among the myriads of men that existed who would pity or assist me; and should I feel kindness towards my enemies? No: from that moment I declared everlasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him who had formed me and sent me forth to this insupportable misery” (Shelly 117). The monster’s estrangement is replaced with his utter rage and vengeance towards his creator who brought him life, yet tantalized him with the values of a society which rejects
Frankenstein was written by Mary Shelly at tender age of nineteen. The story is about Victor Frankenstein and his creation – The Monster.

From here everything changes and Frankenstein’s life goes bad because everybody he loves gets killed. The monster does this because he was neglected by his creator and got no love, so learned to be bad instead and wanted revenge because he didn’t want to be created in the first place, especially if he wasn’t going to be
