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.

Consequentially, a denial of these cravings results in a slow descent into an exceedingly miserable and unfulfilling existence. The demoralizing effects of alienation are a reoccurring aspect of Mary Shelley’s gothic novel Frankenstein. As exemplified by both Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, prolonged estrangement from society essentially rips the lid off Pandora’s notorious Box, prompting self-destruction and magnifying the human tendency to harbor resentments towards a society that has become foreign to them.

Or rather, stay, that I may trample you to dust! And, oh! That I could, with the extinction of your miserable existence, restore those victims whom you have so diabolically murdered!” (M. Shelly, Frankenstein, Chapter 10) Frankenstein’s reasons for creating the monster was that he was so utterly obsessed with life itself he wanted to create a being that would never die out of his mother’s memory so no one else felt his pain, So mainly the reasons for him rejecting the monster is because it was nothing he expected and especially creating it out of his mother’s memory he felt the need to reject
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.

In both Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, we are introduced to monsters of various forms and natures. These monsters ultimately expose the true nature of other main characters within the novels and ultimately, humanity in general. The authors detail the inhumane cruelty that occurs in both novels to serve as statement of human nature and a warning for mankind. Both monsters in these novels are created, which begs the question: If one creates a monster does that not make the creator monstrous as well? In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, we are introduced to Victor Frankenstein; a man obsessed with discovering the secret to creating life.
Victor’s action to run away caused William’s death and made Justine look like the killer when the evidence was planted from the blood.
