The humanity of Frankenstein Many people in society today are constantly being put down because of the way they present themselves. Whether it’s the way they dress, talk, or even walk society is always rejected its own kind. Now imagine a monster trying to fit into society. No matter if it was 200 years ago people are constantly being judged and treated differently because of their appearance. In Frankenstein the creature is constantly being rejected by every human that ever laid eyes on him.
In chapter thirteen of Frankenstein, the creature realizes that he was “a monster, a blot upon earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned” since there was “none like him” (Shelley 123). The result of the atrocious appearance given to him by Victor Frankenstein is that the monster is more than dejected in human society. Even his creator, Victor Frankenstein, gasps at the dreadful wretch he created, “Oh! no mortal could support the horror of that countenance” (Shelley 59). Since he was so apparently appalling to the people he stumbled upon, he was entirely repudiated from human society.
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. These mistakes of Victors, among others, are what cause the creature’s evil actions in the end.
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
May/June 2007 Question #2 Dr. Zinc – Model Answer In paragraph 1, the writer portrays Dr. Zinc as a frightening and insane man. Dr. Zinc is described as being “bizarre”, giving the impression that he is abnormal; therefore, his words are untrustworthy. His unsettling, “cadaverous” appearance frightens the audience, as they watch the zombie‐like figure perform. Not only addressing his audience in a “theatrical manner”, Dr. Zinc also exaggerates his speech by “gesticulating wildly”, like a “tree in a gale”, suggesting his insincerity and mental instability. Clearly, no one should take him seriously.
But secretly inside he hated the environment in which he lived, he hated the imperialistic government in which resided in Burma, and he hated the residents of Burma. “…I thought the greatest joy in the world would be to drive a bayonet into a Buddhist priest’s guts.” (Page 310) He felt all of this hatred for the people around him, but yet he felt as if he had to go along with everything and everyone else just to live in harmony. As Orwell was summoned to the “tiny incident” as he called it, taking care of the elephant situation, he found that the residents of the village did not know exactly what was going on with the elephant until they found out that there could possibly be a shooting, or at least some excitement. For example, he asked some of the villagers if they had seen the elephant. Some said that the elephant went to the left and some said that the elephant went to the right and some did not even know about the elephant at all.
To the “yellow faces” he is the type of man to kill an elephant, even though it goes against his wishes. He feels the full weight of their prejudice and expectations on his shoulders, forcing him to do what he doesn’t want to.

Hallie’s inherited views in the play Master Harold and The Boys by Athol Fugard cause him to destroy his friendship with his mother’s employee, Sam. Prior to their fight Hallie and Sam remember a day where Sam made Hallie a kite.
The first example of how the search for the attainment of knowledge is not worth the danger it entails is through Frankenstein’s monster. The monster, Victor's horrific creation, throughout the book had incredible potential to be benevolent and pure from the time he was born, but his fascination with human nature, language, and desire to fit in led him to his terrible demise. The first way the monster tried to attain knowledge was through his fascination with human nature. Rejected by his creator and utterly alone, the monster learned what he could of human nature by eavesdropping on a family of cottage dwellers. These people eventually found out of the monsters eavesdropping and the monster was put in danger of being killed and getting his feelings hurt.
The creature was treated badly by others which made him feel unwanted and for him to do evil things. At the beginning of the novel the creature watched the De Lacey family actions and lifestyle. He learned that even though they were poor they still love and respected one another. The creature tries to introduce himself to the family and everyone is scared of him. Safie rushes out the cottage, Agatha faints, and Felix beats on the creature until he leaves.
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
