While the groom is looking for the creature, he gets to Elizabeth, the bride, leaving her “lifeless and inanimate”. When looking upon the crime scene, Victor sees the murderer: “A grin was on the face of the monster; he seemed to jeer, as with his fiendish finder he pointed to the corpse of my wife” (Shelley 174). This evil act is directly caused by the creator’s rash decision to destroy the female and ruin his monster’s life once again. Many people agree that it is “Victor’s inability to see the monster’s own value and not his concern for the world that leads him to leave his “Adam” without a mate. This, of course, drives the monster to kill again” (Lunsford 175).
The second difference between the 1931 movie version of Frankenstein and the book version is that in the book the monster’s actions are a result of his outrage at the poor treatment and his physically revolting appearance. However in the movie the monster acts the way it does because of its poor treatment at the hands of Frankenstein’s assistant Fritz. In the movie Fritz supplies dim-wittedly supplies Frankenstein with the brain of an executed criminal to be used in his experiment. It can thus be reasoned that Frankenstein’s
The youth are raised to have the same animosity towards people who are not their kin, never being told the original source of the conflict. In the same paragraph previously referred to, Huck attempts to inquire why the conflict started and which side started it. Buck answers “I don’t know” “How do I know? It was so long ago”, simplistically; showing that most people have conformed so deep into society that they cease to speculate the ideas of their ancestors. Huck and Jim aren’t exactly what you’d consider normal friends, considering society shuns the thought of them even having a friendly conversation.
In this mission he encountered Victor Frankenstein, an extremely weak and moribund man. Victor soon explains to Walton his treacherous journey to find and exterminate his “monstrous” creation. Most people who read “Frankenstein” have the same perception of the characters involved in the novel. This perception usually has to do with Victor Frankenstein being a victim of his so-called “monster”, in other words his creation. This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance.
During the murder the Creature tells William, “Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy to him towards whom I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim” (Shelly 122). The only reason the Creature murdered William is because he is angry that he is on Earth even though no one wants him. I would rather defend the Creature if they were on trial for murder because the Creature really does not know any better and was never taught what was right and wrong. 4.
The failure to verbally communicate meant that they were unable to explain any of these issues to each other and this left them with no way to resolve these conflicts. The misunderstanding of body language was another form of poor communication which led to conflicts of violence and abuse. Both races had
The qualities the creature lacks definitely justify his rejection and give him reasons to despise his creator and all humanity. The way humans live and communicate day to day has always been similar over the centuries. The way people treat each other for the most part is acceptable but there is a wide range of unacceptable behavior humans take on, and are careless to fix. In the novel Frankenstein, the creature is created by Victor Frankenstein, a man in desperate need of a male friend. Since Victor was a social outcast he decided to create a friend but instead created a monster.
Once his work was completed and he witnessed the product of all his long hours and feeble exhaustion, he is horrified. His perfectly proportional creation, the result of a labor of love…it was hideous, an atrocity, an abomination. Unable to accept the reality of what he had done, Victor fled, from the site of his creation, from responsibility, from the unnatural being he thrust into the world. This abandonment is what ultimately leads to the destruction of all those people whom Victor once loved. The list of innocent victims is a long and discouraging one: his brother William, his beloved family servant Justine, his wife Elizabeth, his father, and his most loyal friend Henry
He takes the creatures threat of being with him on his wedding night as a direct threat to him even though the creature has killed others besides victor before. He later chases his creation to ultimately destroy him, the creature which he, by all rights, is 100% responsible for. He says in one passage, “Scoffing devil! Again do I vow vengeance; again do I devote thee, miserable fiend, to torture and death. Never will I give up my search until he or I perish…” (136).
“Anguish and despair had penetrated into the core of my heart; I bore a hell within me, which nothing could extinguish.” (Shelley 75) However, Victor cannot explain the truth because he is afraid people will think he is crazy. He is convicted knowing that the monster caused the death of his own family member and the execution of Justine. Shelley conveys that the scientific attitudes of Victor creating the monster made Victor feel
