Victor had no reason to put his creation though such pain he just did it through pure selfishness. Victor is the real monster because he has no respect for his creation, abandoned him, and causes him to turn on his creator. The lack of respect towards the Monster is so horrendous that Victor's creation has every reason to be furious. The disrespect starts right when the monster was created, "[a] flash of
This could cause conflict between the creator and the created as Victor is repeatedly insulting the monster. In addition, Victor rejects the Monster immediately after its creation; he calls it a 'wretch' and leaves it to fend for itself. This shows how irresponsible Victor is as he abandons his responsibilities. It is also another example of him neglecting his family, since the Monster sees him as its father. This creates conflict between the monster and Victor as the monster soon begins to hate him for abandoning him.
The book is the start of the monster’s abhorrence to man, as the monster thinks that he cannot fit in with people because he does not own any property and does not know he was born. So, the monster begins to believe that he is an outcast. I would replace this book with The Ugly Duckling. Ruins of Empires causes the monster to lose self-esteem. The Ugly Duckling is well renowned for creation of self-esteem in children.
Victor waves his fist around and threatens to attack the monster, but is able to avoid Victor with his speed. The monster claimed to be a virtuous creature, until the actions of humans made him miserable. “All men hate the wretched; how then, must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things! Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us.” (Vol. II Chapter II, Page 117).
However, the creation of the monster did not have to result in such horrific acts. Victor was mortified by his creation, and immediately rejected and abandoned it to face the world of judgmental people alone. “Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” (Shelly, 108) It is believed that this irrepressible feeling of abandonment and the continuous rejection angered the monster so intensely that he sought to soothe his revengeful soul by murdering those closest to the one whom he felt responsible for
His suffering over his rejection in society had fueled his angry making him hostile. Through this hostility, the creature plans to make Victor suffer as he does, thinking this would ultimately end his suffering. The creature kills many of Victor’s family and friends and stalks him, making him lose his sanity and become quite sick.
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...
Viktor Frankenstein, The Creature And The Main Themes In "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelly The creature that Victor Frankenstein created was horrible to all who saw it, including Victor himself. Huge,misshapen and awkward,the creature was not even concidered a human.Indeed, the creature began to fullfill the only role that humans allowed him to occupy: the role of a bloodthursty monster. Yet, what Mery Shelly's Frankenstein shows us is not so much how horrible it is to alert the natural order, but how tragically simple it is to create a monster. Victor Frankenstein created a monster not by contraverting nature, as many would believe, but by judging the creature by his outward appearance and treating him like an unworthy freak.How simple it is to hate oders, to concider them less than a human based on superficial analysys! If only Frankenstein had tried to learn what his creature need before he gave him life!
Innocence Loss Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein links vagueness and fortitude of a college student, named Victor Frankenstein, whose obsession of science drives him over the edge. Because of his thirst for knowledge, he goes too far and creates a monstrous creature, which he instantaneously rejects. This rejection plays a major role in the monster’s hatred for humans. As the story goes on, the constant dismissal of the wrench eventually turned him for a sweet, innocent creature, to a vile, insensitive abomination. Rejection is a horrible insult that can drive even the lovable of creatures to do unspeakable deeds.
Through the actions committed in the play, Victor Frankenstein becomes one of the most monstrous characters in the story. The first steps to becoming a monster take place in the very beginning of the story, and Victor complete isolates himself from society and alienates his family. Victor does this more than once in the novel, once when creating the first creature then again when attempting to create
