(dictionary.google.com) Characters within the novel make socially prejudiced judgments towards Victor Frankenstein’s creation, resulting in the mistreatment and dehumanization of the creature. This leads to the question: was Frankenstein’s creation “born” or made a monster? We learn of the creature’s story and struggles through his first meeting with his creator, Victor Frankenstein. One main issue the creature is faced with is his immediate isolation, rejection and abandonment by his creator. He is never given a name or treated equally; he is instantly seen as being a monster and “filthy creation.” (Shelley, 41) After spending countless time creating, Frankenstein made the conscious decision to make the monster large in stature and size.
Frankenstein is repulsed by the creatures physical appearance and immediately rejects him, leaving the creature, recently created and new to the world, to fend for himself. This creature contemplates and muses like a human being, appealing to his creator Frankenstein, and even asking himself: “Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned (Shelley 85)?” The fact that the creature is commonly perceived as an inhuman ‘monster’ may be due to his evil, murderous actions. The way the story is narrated may influence the reader to believe this as well. The story is not told directly from the creatures own words, but through words of another. Like any other story when one does not experience the events himself it tends to sway towards the story tellers point of view.

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).
However, the `inarticulate sounds which broke from (it) frightened (it) into silence again'.

(2) The second quote: emphasises the irresponsible creator that Frankenstein is. Instead of guiding the creature, teaching it from right from wrong, supporting the creature, he immediately creates an enemy with his creation and enforces war and hostility upon the creature, giving it no choice but to defend itself from its creator and

The first description given of him as a living creature is: “His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath, his hair of a lustrous
I think this is the most sorrowful part in the whole story. Enormous loneness would be hard to bear for him. I don’t even want to imagine the creature’s situation. How terrible and lonely it would be to know everyone in the world always hate and curse me and there’s nobody that I can communicate
