This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance. With extensive analysis of the novel I have encountered with sufficient evidence that led me into thinking otherwise. Such evidence will be presented throughout this essay. Victor Frankenstein, we may say that actually is the incarnation of all human evilness and misdeeds while the so-called "monster” is merely a victim of Victor's mad, selfish, and egocentric state of mind. First of all, I am going to state how Victor resembles more of a monster than the creation itself.
Vlad was not a good ruler; he was very harsh and killed up to tens of thousands of people. For his very harsh and cruel way of killing he got the nick name Vlad the impalor, which in my opinion is not a good thing to be called and not something to be proud of at all. The author of Dracula, Bram Stoker based his novel about the blood thirsty vampire in Transylvania because that is where the real Vlad Dracula was born and also was a very popular place that many vampire tales and folklore had already been plotted there. Bram has based his character on prince Dracula mainly for seeing that he truly was an evil soul that punished those that did not share the same opinion or disobeyed his rules and laws, and the fact that back when he was alive many feared him just like how people feared the vampire count Dracula. A mythical creature famous at Halloween that is not a vampire that I also adore is a werewolf.
Frankenstein was written by Mary Shelly at tender age of nineteen. The story is about Victor Frankenstein and his creation – The Monster. The setting of the story is during the Victorian / Romantic era that was in transitioning to industrial revolution.

Monster and Beast This paper will compare the themes of the novel Frankenstein, a book written by Mary Shelley which was published anonymously in 1818 with Disney’s 1991 animated film, Beauty and the Beast, a musical by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. The novel and the film both have remarkable similarities and connection in terms of the characters, settings and symbols used. The novel starts with Victor Frankenstein’s meddling with the natural set of things including death. In Frankenstein’s intelligent but obsessive mind, he reanimates a creature only to realize his mistakes and in the end makes him miserable. In the film, the beast’s story begins with an old woman begging for shelter from the cold on a castle owned by a heartless prince.
Soumitra Sarkar ENGL 220 Section 62 Instructor: Mikael Awake Frankenstein Research Proposal 04/22/2015 Frankenstein Research Proposal - Human Nature Branching off of the third topic of the research prompt, I’m making a proposal to work on how Shelly has portrayed human nature in Frankenstein. In the novel, Dr. Frankenstein makes a monster from the best body parts and yet others reject that monster along with it’s own creator. The status quo is that humans are naturally accepting and good people. However, in every single instance, the monster in the novel is rejected. Initially the monster seeks to somehow befriend others.
Ma’Kyah Jones Faubel British Literature 1 19 March 2014 What makes a man a monster? What makes a man a monster? To most people, a monster is a creature, usually found in legends, that is often grisly and may produce fear or physical or physiological harm by its appearance and/or its actions, but in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray each story presents its own perception of the creation process pursued by different creators and yielding different creations. Victor Frankenstein is propelled by pride, scientific curiosity, and the hope of healing the human faults to build a creature out of body parts that becomes so ugly in life that no one can treat this monster with anything but fear and rage, and artist Basil Hallward and philosopher Lord Henry Wotton take under their wing the young,
Meghan Ruddlesden November 20, 2012 Essay #3 Frankenstein: The Film versus the Novel Frankenstein is a reoccurring legend that no one knows much information about. People see all of the versions of this classic “monster” today but do we truly know where the original creature came from? As a matter of fact, not many people know that the original Frankenstein was a book, not a movie or a TV show. The classic novel Frankenstein was written by Mary Shelley in 1818 which led to many interpretations and outlooks of the book. The deep meaning of this story can only be understood if the book is read from beginning to end.
She was obsessed with immortality and youth. Another trait that Stoker brought into his novel. As far as fiction goes, Dracula is by far one of the darkest most horrific tales, yet, very entertaining. To know that the character alone is based off of some of the cruelest people in world history still to this day astounds me. However, what is interesting is how vampires have gone from being hated and feared dark monsters of the night to the romanticized creatures of young girl's dreams.
So if someone is ‘playing God’ it means they have the power over life and death. In the film Blade Runner, directed by Ridely Scott and the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the ethics and consequences of having the power over life and death; ‘playing God’, are brought into question.

Roajhaan Sakaki Mrs. de Rubertis H English 12B 12 February 2014 The Feministic Frankenstein Gothic literature is meant to stimulate the body’s senses and to introduce the idea of the super natural. In Mary Shelley’s, story Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein tries to recreate life by creating a hideous monster from the remains of dead people. After being appalled by his creation, Victor abandoned his monster, and left him to survive on his own. Shelley purposely creates a world where the female roles and powers have been usurped by men, in order, to show that a world dominated by males who usurped the female roles, out of fear, would collapse and become chaotic. Shelley portrays how easily this male dominated world would collapse, to prove the importance of a female’s presence in life.
