For example, the monster was hated by all and he knew that he could never have someone that looked normal because of the way he was. He asked his creator, Victor Frankenstein if he could make him someone that was similar to his appearance and threatened him if he didn’t comply with his demand. This showed us that he was very
Frankenstein upon creation reveals “now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” This allows us to understand that victor in no way feels empathy or a sense of obligation towards it. This is unhuman like, instead of the natural mother figure nurturing her new born we see quite the opposite. Victor is consumed by an obsessive hatred of his creation, “I was possessed by maddening rage,” he explains. This is the turning point for the mentally human like creation. He quickly grows a negative view upon humanity.
He was not a monster but victim. He only killed because the world caused him to. No single living being wants to be born into the world alone and left to die alone. “If you had seen the man who thus capitulated for his safety, your surprise would have been boundless. His limbs were nearly frozen, and his body dreadfully emaciated by fatigue and suffering.
Victor grows his animosity when the monster turns out entirely different than he had hoped. Victor hoped to achieve the power to give life to beautiful beings to walk the earth. With the monster’s first breath, Victor is traumatized by what he has created and can’t believe the result of all his hard work. As the days go by, Victor starts to despise the creation he has produced. What triggers his hatred even more is the fact that the monster is responsible for Justine’s and William’s murder.
Upon hearing this, the creature believes the solution to his misery is a mate. But Victor is cruel and in the midst of creating a mate for the creature he tears her to pieces and refuses this to his progeny. The creature becomes odious. Frankenstein is heartless and chooses to keep the monster
The monster can be seen as monstrous because he is hideously ugly and rejected by society. However, he is also monstrous because he lost his innocence by killing people that were innocent to get revenge on Frankenstein. The monster kills everyone who was close to Frankenstein, including Elizabeth, the person he loved the most since childhood. This vendetta was the result of Victor breaking his promise to make a companion. Frankenstein himself also has a monstrosity to him because his ambition, secrecy, and selfishness make him isolated from society.
Humanity’s Separation from Nature The gray unhappy air surrounds civilization as the pollution of human creations and discoveries tears us further and further from our natural beginnings. Nature no longer encompasses us with sunshine and beauty, left alone we become monsters in our outlook and attempt to take control of power we were never meant to have. With the use of drugs and the constant striving for upmost power to create living from dead we have destroyed our natural roots. Natural processes slowly disappear from the world around us, in Brave New World the Director says; "Bokanovsky's Process is one of the major instruments of social stability!" (1) This is a process where people are artificially made and conditioned into certain parts of society.
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.
Such violence is really only the cause of Roy’s pain, his emotions controlling his actions conflicts with our prejudice. Frankenstein's Monster's anguish comes from the rejection he feels from society “Am I to be thought the only criminal, when all human kind sinned against me?”. Posing this Rhetorical question highlights the Irony of how the monster while innocent has been judged just as the reader has. Influenced by her father Mary Shelley's story of a monster portrays the idea that to be human goes beyond that of the body. The Monsters vulgarity and the Replicants perfection does not define them their reaction and action and the ability to think morally and ethically makes them human.
In the book, Frankenstein shows his disgust of creating a mate for the creature and he goes on to talk about all the possible consequences. “Had I right, for my own benefit, to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations?” this quote could directly apply to some of the problems of genetic modification. Frankenstein eventually comes to the conclusion that he does not have any right to create a second creature to satisfy the existing creature’s wishes as well as for sake of himself. By creating a second creature, it could possibly bring unintentional consequences to the future generations. Frankenstein felt so strongly against it that he stopped the creating and damned himself.
