This "plan" appears to be working; however the rest of the family appears, and they think he is intent on harm. This causes them to become hostile towards him, and eject him from the cottage. This causes the monster to think again about humans and their "virtues" and turns him rebellious, and hateful.
Most people are kind at heart, but society’s negative perceptions changes them. Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, portrays this concept. Frankenstein’s monster treats humans kindly - refuting the stereotype that all monsters are evil. In this novel, the monster is kind towards mankind until society criticizes him and turns him into a malicious creature. The monster that Frankenstein creates has kind-hearted morals, but because society harms him based on his hideous appearance.
Also, in a way that if a monster tries not to be a monster it will always be one. This is because monsters have traits that normal people in society don’t have. So, by being different society doesn’t accept their identity. Even when monsters try to hide their true identity, society makes them who they actually are by pushing them back to their monstrous state. In this world there are all kinds of monsters some not understanding why they are monsters so they don’t see themselves as monsters.
Felix's action caused great inner pain to the monster. He knew that his dream of living with them "happily ever after" would not happen. After that bitter moment, the monster believed that "...the human senses are insurmountable barriers to our union [with the monster]" (138) and with the De Lacey encounter still fresh in his mind along with his first encounter of humans, he declared war on the human race. The wicked being's source of hatred toward humans originates from his first experiences with humans. In a way, the monster started out with a child-like innocence that was eventually shattered by being constantly rejected by society time after time.
Although the monster is justified in showing anger towards Victor, his killings of Victor’s friends and family is overly brutal. Years of neglect by Victor, which leave the monster fatherless as he grows up, drive him into a vindictive rage, or according to the monster, an "uncontrollable passion". Instead of going after Victor directly and immediately, however, the monster acts to complete what he calls a "demoniacal design". He carries out this plan by methodically killing Victor’s friends and family. This he... ... middle of paper ... ...tradictory ways to them, the monster certainly is deserved of his title as "monster".
Also, his social individualism from the outside world caused him to have no sense of how to treat the creature. The poor treatment that the monster received is the sole reason that he was caused to act the way he did. He says to Victor, "… but if you refuse, I will glut the maw of death, until it be satisfied with the blood of your remaining friends" (Shelley 97). This is a representation of not only the capabilities that the monster had, but what an accomplishment that it was for Victor to create this beast. If the monster were treated properly, it
However, Victor did not give in to this emotional state. Anne Mellor explains Frankenstein’s denial of this, “Frankenstein’s failure to embrace his smiling creature with maternal love, his horrified rejection of his own creation, spells out the narrative consequences of solitary paternal propaganda” (Mellor 47). Our need for affection leads us to problems of insignificance. In relation to how us humans need love and support to strive in society. This makes Frankenstein’s monster portray humanistic traits.
This isolation renders the monster incapable of developing proper relationships with man, leaving the monster “miserable” (144). The monster’s virtues, left unrecognized, succumb to abhorrence for the human race. Likewise, an improper upbringing in impoverished Nelson Place cripples Pinkie. Pinkie’s parents prematurely expose him to sexual intercourse, and in order to escape this horror, Pinkie is willing “to commit any crime” and kills his parents (Greene 156). After these experiences, Pinkie loses the ability to feel emotion.
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein The characterization of Victor’s creature, the monster, in the movie although somewhat dramatically different from Mary Shelley’s portrayal in the novel Frankenstein also had its similarities. Shelley’s views of the monster were to make him seem like a human being, while the movie made the monster out to be a hideous creation. The creature’s appearance and personality are two aspects that differ between the novel and movie while his intellectual and tender sides were portrayed the same. From the novel the creature’s physical appearance is left up to each reader’s imagination. Shelley wrote: His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful.
Society doesn’t except this because your not supposed to be two different people. Trying to be two different people is monstrous because that just doesn’t happen and him to think that is okay is monstrous. Also, for him to murder people makes him a monster. By Dr. Jekyll’s friend starting to get suspicious about this situation drive Dr. Jekyll to worry then, he turns back to Mr. Hyde and thinks it’s a good idea to kill himself. So, society drove his monstrosity to kill himself, which made him to continue to be a
