After promising the creature he’d make him a female companion, Frankenstein has second thoughts and changes his mind. The monster watches in despair as the scientist destroys his happy future: “The wretch saw me destroy the creature on whose future existence he depended of happiness, and with a howl of devilish despair and revenge, withdrew” (Shelley 145). As Victor tears apart the female with “trembling passion”, the being loses everything he had to look forward to in life and he sets out a quest to ruin the happiness of his creator, as Frankenstein had done to him. After warning the scientist that he would be with him on his wedding night, the monster stays true to his promise. While the groom is looking for the creature, he gets to Elizabeth, the bride, leaving her “lifeless and inanimate”.
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
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
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
Because of the monster's cruel act of causing death, Victor faces inevitable conviction. Justine confesses she is the murderer of Victor's brother, William, when she was placed on trial. However, she is innocent and claims she is the murderer hoping to gain salvation. Not only does Justine blame herself, Victor knows she has nothing to do with the case and he feels horrible. “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.
The creature wanted revenge so on the day of victors wedding he killed his soon to be wife. This made Victor understand how the creature felt, but he did not care he wanted the same revenge on the creature and swore to find and destroy the creature. In my opinion Victor should have created a mate for Frankenstein. It was unfair to the creature to let him be alone. There were some risks for Victor if he was going to create a mate but it would be well worth
He hunts in his zoo of death, and tries to murder his wife just so he can start a war. Prince Humperdinck can be characterized as an evil genius, a sadist, and a tyrant. He is an evil genius because he creates the elaborate zoo of death and loves to show off his superior intelligence. Prince Humperdinck is a sadist because he enjoys cruelty, violence, and brutality. He kills for the pleasure of killing, with no respect for human life.
In asking Victor to create a life partner, the monster dreams of finally finding someone to belong, granting him purpose in life. When his last hope of happiness and companionship is destroyed by Victor, who again betrays the monster, are crushes his feelings of undeniable acceptance. The monster reasons, “here was none among the myriads of men that existed who would pity or assist me; and should I feel kindness towards my enemies? No: from that moment I declared everlasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him who had formed me and sent me forth to this insupportable misery” (Shelly 117). The monster’s estrangement is replaced with his utter rage and vengeance towards his creator who brought him life, yet tantalized him with the values of a society which rejects
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
The creature ends up being alone and he comes up with an idea. “I know not; despair had not yet taken possession of me; feelings were those of rage and revenge.”(p.146) The creatures idea is revenge. He wants to get revenge on his creator because of the way he was treated by Frankenstein. The creature does get his
