The methods of the monster’s revenge are definitely a little extreme. "Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy--to him towards whom I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim." The monster wants Victor to feel as alone as he did when he abandoned him, so he decided to kill many of his family members, such as William. Victor wanting revenge for the death of William is sort of what kills the others, so Victor feels morally responsible for the deaths of his family members.
What triggers his hatred even more is the fact that the monster is responsible for Justine’s and William’s murder. With this knowledge Victor screams in rage towards the monster “Scoffing devil! Again do I vow vengeance; again do I devote thee miserable fiend, to torture and death.” (107) Victor becomes overwhelmed by the murder and feels totally responsible for it, since it his creation that has committed these murders. "I did confess; but I confessed a lie. I confessed, that I might obtain absolution; but now that falsehood lies heavier at my heart than all my other sins.
This Creation was seen as a big scary monster that would kill you if he even laid eyes on you. Although he was some-what a normal human being, he was just not educationally advanced like we are. If you think of him as being like a caveman it is easier to understand that Frankenstein’s Creation was, well let’s just say the lights were on but nobody was home. That would be a kinder way of describing the Creation. The people where scared of him because he seemed violent, he wasn’t violent he was just afraid and didn’t understand.
You purpose to kill me. How dare you sport thus with life? Do your duty towards me, and I will do mine towards you and the rest of mankind” (86). The monster is asking Frankenstein to take a little bit of responsibility for him. This is really all the monster wants, and technically, it is Frankenstein’s duty to do so.
Later on, that same monster that persuaded Victor to make him to make him a female companion, threatened him and his loved ones. Once again, it’s too late when Victor realizes his fault at making a monster in the first place. After all the suffering that the monster had gone through, he asked Victor to make him a female companion, and Victor obeyed. In the process of making
The monster acts with extreme selfishness and from that comes unethical behaviour and actions. After not getting what he wanted, he promises to destroy Victor’s life and threatens him, by saying “I go; but remember, I shall be with you on your wedding-night" (137). The monster decides to unrightfully take revenge on Victor. The monster is so self-centred that it is incapable of acting ethical, and that its actions are solely to achieve its horrific goal. The above quote also ties in with one of the themes of the book, which is monstrosity.
So, Victor Frankenstein was guilty as he created the creature, and left him alone. Victor caused Frankenstein’s monstrous appearance and his appearance resulted in misunderstandings about the creature. The main point is that the guilty one of these misunderstandings, the creature’s appearance and his exclusion from society was Victor Frankenstein, the creator. Particularly by focusing on the given passages 15, 16, and19, I will try to show how far away Victor is from humanity. Before Frankenstein creates the creature, Frankenstein goes graveyards to collect dead body parts with an aim to accomplish his ambition.
The human emotions often represented in the Romantic Era of literature are clearly displayed in the novel Frankenstein through the monster itself. The monsters emotions are what rule him. He displays every negative human quality that each of us wishes didn't exist, such as rage, jealousy, and hatred. Chapter 20 is a prime example of this, in which we can see how he demonstrates human emotion in a negative as well as a positive aspect. “"The wretch saw me destroy the creation whose future existence he depended on happiness and with a howl of devilish despair and revenge, withdrew."
Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein had Victor Frankenstein as the creator of the monster. Through his creation you can see Victor becoming the monster “If you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes into you” (Nietzsche). After Victor Frankenstein’s monster was created he is then set upon a path of his own. The Monsters first encounters with people lead him down a path of himself becoming a monster himself. This is a cycle that is not uncommon and continues in this day and age.
The monster only wanted one thing in life and that was another he could love and call his own, just like movie, Lilo and Stitch. Stich in the movie is the monster in this book. In the movie Stich was created to be pure evil, to steal street signs, back up sewer lines and steal every ones left shoe but, he found Lilo which made him re-think what he was being and made him benevolent. This is just like the monster in the book; the monster labeled as evil for his looks. The monster, in retaliation, fills this label he is given because it is the only one he truly knows but, the monster just wanted to be loved and have a place to call home just as Stitch did in the movie.
