Shelly, Frankenstein , chapter 10) Taking this quotation into account it further shows my disagreement towards Victors claim that there can’t be any community between the two. However the creature confronts Frankenstein in hope to gain his approval and tell him that he has to do his job as a creator. Off course Frankenstein rejects as he is a murderer now in his eyes and further continues to say there is no community between the two. “Begone, vile insect! Or rather, stay, that I may trample you to dust!
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
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 Is Shelly saying that human nature is bad and full of rejection and isolation? I would like to work on these questions by analyzing the moments of rejection for the monster and Victor, and seeing how these rejections in life affect their “nature” over the time-span of the novel.

When his experiment comes to life, Frankenstein gets scared, thus giving The Creature all of the power he previously held. Victor continues to avoid and run from his creation, leaving all of the power out of his hands. Furthermore, The Creature confronts Victor and demands that he listen to his story, and later demands that he be given a companion. Here we can see where the thirst for power has been transferred, leaving the original man of power in desolation. Looking at the work as a whole, we see a common idea about paying God by giving life, and the aftermath that comes with it.
He talks to Frankenstein about making him a female companion. At first Frankenstein rejects the creatures request but then decides to do it. Frankenstein creates the second creature and then destroys it . The creature then results to evil by threaten Frankenstein telling him if he doesn’t make the companion for him he will kill Elizabeth on the day of her wedding. Frankenstein doesn’t create another monster.
The monster also always runs away from him leaving some traces for Frankenstein. The reason why the monster leaves some marks would be that he didn’t want to break the relationship with Frankenstein because he was the only person who knew and proved the existence of the creature himself in the world. And also the creature thought Frankenstein as a God or father even though he really cursed the Frankenstein who made him to live in the harsh world without any help. We can see this with the tears and ejaculation of creature at the moment of death of Frankenstein. I think this is the most sorrowful part in the whole story.
This is because Dr. Victor Frankenstein feels the same way about the creature. Frankenstein wants nothing to do with him. He thinks the creature is an ugly monster. This makes Frankenstein so upset to the point that he decides to abandon his own creation. The creature ends up being alone and he comes up with an idea.
Frankenstein should have loved the creature unconditionally because the monster was like his child. After seeing the Monster, Frankenstein ran away and locked himself in his room, and hoped that when he woke up it would all be gone. This shows Frankenstein in an evil light for making the Monster feel unwanted. The monster would have been born innocent and pure. It’s the way you are brought up that affects the outcome of the person.
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.
