From here everything changes and Frankenstein’s life goes bad because everybody he loves gets killed. The monster does this because he was neglected by his creator and got no love, so learned to be bad instead and wanted revenge because he didn’t want to be created in the first place, especially if he wasn’t going to be
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
This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance. With extensive analysis of the novel I have encountered with sufficient evidence that led me into thinking otherwise. Such evidence will be presented throughout this essay. Victor Frankenstein, we may say that actually is the incarnation of all human evilness and misdeeds while the so-called "monster” is merely a victim of Victor's mad, selfish, and egocentric state of mind. First of all, I am going to state how Victor resembles more of a monster than the creation itself.
This is because Dr. Victor Frankenstein feels the same way about the creature. Frankenstein wants nothing to do with him. He thinks the creature is an ugly monster. This makes Frankenstein so upset to the point that he decides to abandon his own creation. The creature ends up being alone and he comes up with an idea.
The monster also always runs away from him leaving some traces for Frankenstein. The reason why the monster leaves some marks would be that he didn’t want to break the relationship with Frankenstein because he was the only person who knew and proved the existence of the creature himself in the world. And also the creature thought Frankenstein as a God or father even though he really cursed the Frankenstein who made him to live in the harsh world without any help. We can see this with the tears and ejaculation of creature at the moment of death of Frankenstein. I think this is the most sorrowful part in the whole story.
From the earliest stages of the novel Frankenstein, I was pressed with one question – “Who is the real monster, Victor Frankenstein, or his horribly mutated creation?” Victor Frankenstein was driven by most selfish ambitions. He discovered the secrets of life and kept them all to himself, an act of greed. And upon finding these secrets, through a hermit lifestyle of isolation and the pursuit of knowledge, he creates what is only to be known as the monster. The monster is a hideous yet intelligent and caring creature whom self-taught himself the language around him, only in order to interact socially with people and to seek approval from his creator. Only after being treated so poorly and outcast by every human he comes in contact with is Frankenstein’s monster driven to rage and vengeance.
More of this ominous diction that Shelley uses is shown here and it provides very disturbing imagery. The creepy imagery that is used really makes one's stomach turn so they can see the gruesomeness of the monster, and the gravity of the situation that Frankenstein has put himself in. This also helps us know how he must’ve felt in that position! Obsessed with the pursuit of knowledge, Frankenstein ends up destroying his whole life. He now lives in fear that the monster will kill him.
During Shelley’s time period, females were considered to be inferior to men, but Shelley shows how men actually feared a woman’s power. For example, when Frankenstein was creating the female mate for his monster, he started thinking about the consequences of having a female version of his monster in the world. He thought that she can create a whole new race of them and that she would not listen to the male monster and do things her own way. These were horrifying to Victor and all of these were thoughts of fear. Frankenstein feared the power of the female and her capabilities.
The monster's actions proved to Victor that he was thriving for a female companion. The monster's use of emotion and logic to appeal Frankenstein's sense of responsibility creates a theme of isolation When Victor spends two years creating his monster, he becomes lost in his studies and isolates himself from society. The monster on the other hand becomes resentful because he becomes overwhelmed with rejection and isolation. Those feelings lead to anger and rage and in return he tries to make Victor feel as isolated as possible. In sum, isolation becomes the worst imaginable fate throughout the novel, which leads to violence, rage and disaster.
This is a cruel and evil thing that victor has done. The monster responds by saying, “Shall each man…find a wife for his bosom, and each beast have his mate, and be alone? I had feeling of affection, and they were requited by detestation and scorn” (110). After several more back and forth between the creature and Victor the monster threatens to destroy Victor by destroying those around him. Again this may seem like the creature is the
