After promising the creature he’d make him a female companion, Frankenstein has second thoughts and changes his mind. The monster watches in despair as the scientist destroys his happy future: “The wretch saw me destroy the creature on whose future existence he depended of happiness, and with a howl of devilish despair and revenge, withdrew” (Shelley 145). As Victor tears apart the female with “trembling passion”, the being loses everything he had to look forward to in life and he sets out a quest to ruin the happiness of his creator, as Frankenstein had done to him. After warning the scientist that he would be with him on his wedding night, the monster stays true to his promise. While the groom is looking for the creature, he gets to Elizabeth, the bride, leaving her “lifeless and inanimate”.
Another aspect that is interesting is the turn in behavior for the monster. Perhaps the best quote to represent this idea comes from the actualization of the monster to himself in front of Victor’s dead body “My heart was fashioned to be susceptible of love...it did not endure the violence of change without torture” showing how evil nature overcomes the good nature in human beings (Shelly, 158). Initially the monster is very amicable, however, due to continuous rejection, he seeks revenge upon all human beings. Is Shelly saying that even though even nature is good, evil eventually overcomes this good nature? Or Is Shelly saying that human nature is bad and full of rejection and isolation?
In short, he's ticked off that his maker created him to be alone and miserable, and so would Frankenstein please make him a female companion? After much persuading, Victor agrees. He drops off Henry in Scotland while he goes to an island in the Orkneys to work. But, just before he finishes, he destroys the second monster: he's afraid that the two will bring destruction to humanity rather than love each other harmlessly. The monster sees him do this and swears revenge … again.
Hassan has taken the blame for Amir their hole chidhood whilst they shot nuts at the neighbors dog and here he takes the risk of being attacked by Assef in order to get to the fallen kite for Amir. His kindness only emphasises the horror of the scene because it contrasts completely with Amir's inability to step up and protect his friend. Amir only thinks of himself and his want to please his father whilst Hassan thinks only of Amir “for you a thousand times over.” Hosseini doesn't give a detailed description of this scene. Every time it has the potential to become graffic, Amir takes his mind off of the situation. Only about a page and a half reflects the duration and the word ‘rape’ is not used.
He twisted in pain, and the bleeding sinews deep in his shoulder snapped, muscle and bone split and broke, The battle was over, Beowulf had been granted new glory.”(“Beowulf” 54, ll.370-379). Grendel was dead and Beowulf was the victor, Beowulf continued his importance as an epic hero. Now that Beowulf had killed Grendel, Grendel's mother was out to go and kill Beowulf. Beowulf did not like that and he went to go hunt and kill Grendel's mother so he would not be killed. “He drew it from its scabbard, broke the chain on its hilt, and then, savage, now angry and desperate, lifted it high over his head and struck with all the strength he had left, caught her in the neck and cut it through, broke bones and all.
One of the many flaws that Victor displays throughout the novel is revealed when he fails to express love and compassion towards the monster; instead, he demonstrates ignorance and recklessness as a creator the moment he abandons his creation. When he gazes upon the completion of his creation, “breathless horror and disgust fill[s] [his] heart… [and he is] [u]nable to endure the aspect of the being [he] create[s]” (Shelley 67). The frightening appearance of the monster blinds Victor, rendering him unable to feel pity towards his creation and he rejects the creature instead. Even when Victor discovers that the monster is highly intelligent and inhabits real, human sentiments, he still regards it with the utmost malevolence and hatred. Victor
Harry's conviction led him to a life of remorse and disgrace, and both men felt nothing but repulsion and repentance after coming to realization with what they have done. Victor truly believed that in bringing the Creature to life, he was indeed bettering the world, as Harry assumed that through guiding Dexter into becoming a murderous vigilante he was aiding mankind. Ironically both men were utterly mistaken; all Victor's Creature truly accomplished was murdering his loved ones in anger, and terrifying the world with his appalling appearance. Dexter on the other hand might've helped mankind, but who's to say it was his right to kill all those people? One might argue "The Justice System does that exact act every day."
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.
However, the family rejects him based on outward appearance, before giving the monster a chance to speak. The monster also saves a girl from drowning, only to be attacked by a man who thought that he was attempting to hurt the girl, not save her. Upon realizing social interaction with humans will prove almost impossible, the monster beckons Victor to create for him a female companion. However, Victor breaks his promise to the monster, and he vows to seek revenge. All of these events coupled with the abandonment by his creator drive the monster to madness and rage against the human population, who he learns will never accept him due to his grotesque outward
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).
