In this essay, I will try to explore Victor Frankenstein’s characterization, in terms of his humanity considering his experiences, and his narration. My aim in trying to explore Frankenstein’s characterization is to show that although the appearance of the creature was resembled a monster; it could not be defined as monster.

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.
However, whereas Victor’s hatred for the monster and relentless will to kill it drives him to his death, Walton ultimately pulls back from his treacherous mission having learned from Victor’s example, how destructive the thirst for knowledge can be.

Victor in a way wanted to create a creature to experiment his skills and try to expand life, which in turn turned out to be a catastrophe. Victor had created a monster that created uproar in the society. Later on, that same monster that persuaded Victor to make him to make him a female companion, threatened him and his loved ones.
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!"

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.

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.
