Just like Victor creating the monster and the conflict they had with one another, it’s a problem we will try time and time again to find out but it’s something that was never intended to be found out. Once the monster was created the man had no idea what to do with it or how to handle the situation. God knew what he was doing and that’s why it’s his power and for no one else to lay their hands on, Victor found out the hard way. Running away is never going to solve a problem if anything it will cause more. 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.
Victor Frankenstein’s claim that there can be no ‘community’ or overall , kinship between the creature and himself basically means that he does not want any sort of relation with his creation as he considers him less of a human and more of a monster. My opinion on this is that I completely disagree with his claim. Mainly on the basis of the most obvious reason which is it’s his creation and as the maker he has a certain responsibility for the creature. Not only this but the creature craves attention just like a child from his parents, Frankenstein rejects him which throws the creature in a spiral of hatred to mankind. On the basis
First of all, I am going to state how Victor resembles more of a monster than the creation itself. Victor only thought so much of himself and what he wanted to achieve that he really did not analyze completely what he was doing or what consequences this might have had. At the same time that these actions represent his selfishness and egocentrism, it evokes his madness. Victor became so obsessed with his ability to play God that he became completely detached from all his loved ones and humanity. All of this,
In addition, he did nothing to stop the monster of striking again because he didn’t want to destroy what he had created. Dr. Frankenstein traits reveal the potential for his heinous doings. All of his actions lead to satisfying his self-center ends. Some of his traits may make him out to be a shrinking violet, however there’s more than the meets of the eyes. Mad scientist is the best way to describe Dr. Frankenstein.
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.
His inventions, along with his children, lead to the destruction of the human race. Felix’s only beliefs are in things that he is able to see, taste, touch, feel, and smell. Therefore, Felix does not believe in idealistic notions. He does not care about the feelings of others around him. Representing Felix’s nonbelief in the ideals of life, he says to his co-worker Mrs. Faust, “What is God?
The main character’s name is Victor Frankenstein and the entire novel is based on what he has done. What he did to ruin his life, how he played god and in the end caused the killings of his loved ones, everything is centered on his decisions. Every moment that lead to his demise, that is what this novel is about. Shelley’s technique is amazing. She puts a story within a story and within that story lays another story.
In each case, these monsters come from faulted creators that will not or cannot take the necessary action to see their creations through to success. These creations become monsters because they have no choice, yet if the creators are truly responsible for the beings to which they give life, does that not make them the monsters? Although some critics say that the monster Frankenstein has created in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, is the blame for the destruction and rampage that follows the experiment, it is Victor who is the guilty party. First, Frankenstein, being the scientist, should have known how to do research on the subject a lot more than he has done. He has not thought of the consequences that may result from it such as the monster going insane, how the monster reacts to people and things, and the time it will take
Shelley presents a situation where society is ignorant about the unfamiliar, different, and is also unwilling to accept and embrace the unusual. Shelley portrays the rejection of the creature by his creator, the society¬’s reaction to the wretch, and the way in which they cannot see beyond superficial. Shelley shows that by having knowledge, Walton is able to see beyond the physical appearance and ultimately better accept the monster for what he really is. The relationship
The monster clearly witnesses the human capability of compassion, as Victor shows for Elizabeth and the peasants show for each other, but their decision to not do the same for him further brings the monster to the conclusion that no matter how well he understands society, he will never be accepted as human. In a request to Victor, the monster solemnly realizes, “I am alone and miserable: man will not associate with me; but one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects. This being you must create,” (Shelly 129). In asking Victor to create a life partner, the monster dreams of finally finding someone to belong, granting him purpose in life.
