It is Frankenstein’s responsibility to teach the monster and see it as a friend. It’s because Frankenstein rejects his creature that causes it to become evil. “Oh No mortal could support the horror of that countenance. A mummy again endued with animation could not be so hideous as that wretch. I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then, but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motion, it became a thing suck as even Dante could not have conceived.”(pg.49) Each time the monster killed it was a consequence of Victor’s actions.
Frankenstein Personal Response Why Victor Frankenstein is Responsible for his Death When one initially reads the gothic tale Frankenstein, it may seem obvious that Victor’s monster was directly responsible for the death of Victor’s loved ones. At the hands of his very own grotesque creation, Victor lost his younger brother, his friends and his newlywed wife, Elizabeth. However, upon reflection on the actions of Victor Frankenstein, I concluded that Victor himself is indisputably responsible for the deaths of the people closest to him. I found these three very distinct reasons that support my thoughts: he created the monster, he rejected and abandoned it, and he refused to make a companion for the monster in the midst of his loneliness. As a result of Victor’s pursuit of scientific knowledge and the desire to infuse life, he created a very grotesque creature that murdered his loved ones.
Once the monster knows that Victor will not make his a friend, the creation says, "'from that moment [he] declared everlasting war against the species, and more than all, against [Frankenstein] who had formed [him] and sent [him] forth to this insupportable misery'" (121). Victor could have saved his loved ones but his fear caused the death of others. The Creation reaches a point where he has had enough of Victor and says, "'You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains -- revenge, henceforth dearer than light of food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery'" (153). The Monster had done nothing to deserve what Victor has put him through, so the fact that the Creation turns on Victor was perfectly normal.
The creature then ignites a killing spree against the Frankenstein name by murdering Victor’s family and friends until he is just as alone as he is. However, much like Victor, the creature feels sorrow and guilt towards himself. After being forced away from the cottagers and realizing he will never be able to fully integrate in society, he begins to question why he was brought into this world, “ Why did I live? Why...did I not extinguish the spark of existence which you had...bestowed? (Shelly 97) The creature feels just being alive is serving an injustice to society but becomes too involved with his mission of justice against
When the monster confronts Dr. Frankenstein before his wedding, he says “You can blast my other passions, but revenge remains-revenge, henceforth dearer tan light or food! I may die, but first you, my tyrant and tormentor, shall curse the sun that gazes on your misery. (175)” Because of his creators constant scorn of him, the monster feels that all that is left inside of him is revenge and hate. Therefore, due to this lack of compassion from his creator, the monster promises to make Dr. Frankenstein’s life a nightmare, and follows through with said
In the novel Frankenstein we see Victor’s technological ambition turn into repulsion as the creation of the monster help him realize the magnitude of his mistakes. “The beauty of my dream vanished, breathless horror and disgust filled my heart”, this shows that Victor was blinded by his ambition and by giving up morality and using technology for his own selfish needs he was not able to foresee the inevitable horrid consequences. On the other hand in Blade Runner the ethical issues of science and technologies are not only portrayed through the creation of the replicants but also by the destruction of nature and its environments. During the beginning of the movie a camera shot from above shows a dark, industrialized city filled with fiery explosions while ominous music is played in the background, the image of the city and non-dijectic sounds portray and emphasise how society has lost sight of what really matters and no longer prioritize
He is trying to avoid the sense of guilt, if anything goes wrong, and the couple had children, because he is responsible for Frankenstein, because he is the creator. Victor has every reason to feel guilty and to have bad conscience, because he is the one who created Frankenstein, and therefore is responsible for the murder of his family, best friend and his wife. These feelings appear in the text: ‘For this I had deprived myself of rest and health.’ And ‘…horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect to the being I had created.’ Because he had created a monster he feels terrible, and he is afraid of him. Which you also can see in the last part of the story: ‘…My teeth chattered...
The symbolism behind the crossbow may mean he killed Jesus. Then when He goes through all the pains and anguish, he is forgiven for killing one of God's creatures. The next story that comes to expresses God in the area of new subjects is Frankenstein by Mary Shelly. This novel shows God in a very different light. Victor is shown as a God because he has created a creature outside of his own blood.
The Monster in the Lab Coat Many literary critics have long argued a question regarding Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: Who is the real monster? One can argue that, throughout the novel, it is Victor Frankenstein, the overly ambitious scientist, who is the true monster. Victor Frankenstein is depicted as a callous creator who shows no empathy to his own innocent creature. Frankenstein fails his responsibility as a creator and abandons his creation to a life full of abhorrence. The creature has infinite potential, but it is Frankenstein’s prideful nature and negligence that makes the creature become “monstrous”.
Containment has failed.” This shows that the World Health Organization (WHO) knows that the biochemist, Dr Bertrand Zobrist, leader of the Transhumanist movement and ancient art enthusiast obsessed with Dante, had released some kind of virus to infect humanity. Dr Zobrist and his movement had realised that because of modern medicine, the world couldn’t control the worlds population with disease and famine anymore, which resulted in overpopulation. His plan was to release a virus which would counteract modern medicine. Robert also finds out that his best friend in the novel, Felicity Sienna Brooks, was actually working for Dr Zobrist. “Brüder shook his head.
