It’s because Frankenstein rejects his creature that causes it to become evil. “Oh No mortal could support the horror of that countenance. A mummy again endued with animation could not be so hideous as that wretch. I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then, but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motion, it became a thing suck as even Dante could not have conceived.”(pg.49) Each time the monster killed it was a consequence of Victor’s actions.
When Frankenstein dies on the ship, Frankenstein's monster admits his remorse to Walton, saying, “I have devoted my creator, the select specimen of all that is worthy of love and admiration among men, to misery; I have pursued him even to that irremediable ruin.

This creates conflict between the monster and Victor as the monster soon begins to hate him for abandoning him. Furthermore, in chapter 16 we see conflict between the creator and the created again: “you belong to my enemy—to him I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim”. The monster’s anger towards his creator is channelled into revenge as he kills his brother. Shelley uses the language device direct address to depict this. The pronoun “you” is repeated, this makes the reader
Quote; Chorus: “And when he had put on the yoke-strap of compulsion, his spirits wind veering to an impious blast, impure, unholy, from that moment his mind changed to a temper of utter ruthlessness. For mortals are made reckless by the evil counsels of merciless infatuation, beginner of disaster. And so he steeled himself to become the sacrificer of his daughter, to aid a war fought to avenge a woman’s loss and to pay beforehand for his ships.” (218-227) This is wear the divine intervention of Gods come into play.

Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” (Shelley 108).

Essentially, this specific chapter is meant to display the contrast between the monster and his creator, and how he has evolved from living in the shadow of society. For instance, this passage affirms the magnitude to which the creature idealizes his highly regarded De Lacey family and all that is affiliated with them. Through his new found worship for them, he longs for their love, and most importantly, acceptance, as he says “[w]as I, then, a monster, a blot upon earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” (Shelley 108).
From the short story "Spanish Roulette" by Ed Vega the poet Sixto vows revenge against a local gang member who raped his sister and battles with himself to make the right choice. Although revenge may be the momentary satisfaction in times of despair, no man extracts revenge for the sake of evil, without the intent of profiting from it, and will be punished for it, regardless of reason, in this life or the next. The theme of these stories is the ability to let go of ones hate, to allow themselves the chance to heal without making the dreaded mistake of taking revenge which will ultimately destroy themselves. The message is clear through all three texts that revenge achieves nothing but gambles everything worth losing for the momentary satisfaction of vengeance. Although the three texts go about different ways, reasons, and potential gain by exacting revenge it is very clear through each story that it is never the best answer.
