Frankenstein says in his narrative, “Winter, spring, and summer passed away during my labours; but I did not watch the blossom or the expanding leaves—sights which before had yielded me supreme delight—so deeply was I engrossed in my occupation”. It is obvious that watching the blossoms would have been a much better way for Frankenstein to spend his time, but he chose instead to work on his creation—which was his own action; destiny did not control that action—he did. So thus it proves that Victor Frankenstein had free will (destiny was not in control), and he was a contradiction to the very institution he believed so firmly in. On another note, Victor’s decisions all so show that destiny, in his definition, was without foundation. The same quoted used above, demonstrates this point as well.
Victor Frankenstein and Macbeth succeeded in carrying through their desires; however they did not succeed in achieving happiness. This is evident as they gained power, became obsessed, and grew distant from friends and family. Although ambition is an amazing quality to have, there are things that may trigger a person to let their ambition turn into obsession. Victor and Macbeth both allow their ambition to become obsessive. Victor disliked death and suffering in life because he had lost his mother and it had been too big of a shock for Victor to handle.
In the novel Frankenstein, author Marry Shelley depicts character Victor Frankenstein as a scientist with a strong passion for forbidden knowledge and finding the answers to life through science. Though his intentions are good this leads him to the creation of a monster. Throughout the novel Frankenstein is constantly encountered by obstacles that test his passions for science and responsibility for his creation. For Victor it seems that the choice to abandon the monster is the easier path, rather than taking care of his creation. In the beginning of the book, right after the creation of the monster, Victor fled his home to get away from the creature, only to return and find that it had escaped.
When I mingled with families, I distinctly discerned how peculiarly fortunate was, and gratitude assisted the development of filial love” (Shelley 35). There is little from the initial description of Frankenstein’s early years that would make us think that he may turn to evil. Neither did any tragic life-changing event take place in his early years that could influence him or make him seek power. If Mary Shelley had intended to portray Frankenstein as an evil character, would she not have given him a reason to be angry with the world and lash out at it by creating a monster? In fact, Frankenstein never created his monster with the intention to harm anyone or cause destruction.
Even though Frankenstein feels that his “human nature [did] turn with loathing from [his] occupation” (55) as he is creating the being, he continues on with an “unnatural stimulus” (55).

In Frankenstein, “The Monster” is Frankenstein's creation. The creature possesses all of the qualities that humans suppress, or should suppress, as children: villainy, murderous thoughts, revenge, etc. Some people would have thought that Frankenstein wanted to replace his dead mother. Instead of doing what every other man does, marry someone like his mother, Frankenstein rejected Elizabeth, who was physically like his mother and had a history like that of his mother. Frankenstein wanted to recreate his mother, but instead he made a creature comprised of the socially repressed elements of Frankenstein (the monster) and his wish for his mother.
