“Anguish and despair had penetrated into the core of my heart; I bore a hell within me, which nothing could extinguish.” (Shelley 75) However, Victor cannot explain the truth because he is afraid people will think he is crazy. He is convicted knowing that the monster caused the death of his own family member and the execution of Justine. Shelley conveys that the scientific attitudes of Victor creating the monster made Victor feel
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.
In this mission he encountered Victor Frankenstein, an extremely weak and moribund man. Victor soon explains to Walton his treacherous journey to find and exterminate his “monstrous” creation. Most people who read “Frankenstein” have the same perception of the characters involved in the novel. This perception usually has to do with Victor Frankenstein being a victim of his so-called “monster”, in other words his creation. This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance.
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.
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
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.
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.
Frankenstein is repulsed by the creatures physical appearance and immediately rejects him, leaving the creature, recently created and new to the world, to fend for himself. This creature contemplates and muses like a human being, appealing to his creator Frankenstein, and even asking himself: “Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned (Shelley 85)?” The fact that the creature is commonly perceived as an inhuman ‘monster’ may be due to his evil, murderous actions. The way the story is narrated may influence the reader to believe this as well. The story is not told directly from the creatures own words, but through words of another. Like any other story when one does not experience the events himself it tends to sway towards the story tellers point of view.
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
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.
