However, the monster is even given the chance to be heard. Otherwise, his intentions might not seem so evil to everyone; instead, the monster is already judged by his appearance solely. Victor does not own up the responsibility of watching his creation and abandons it. Interestingly, the monster’s appearance is the design of Victor; he already knew how the monster was to look. Thus, the monster is isolated from human contact because his design is not of a normal human.

Victor ... ... middle of paper ... ...or was trying to make himself happy over how the monster could have felt. All the monster wanted was compassion and he would never see anyone else again but Victor did not want to make things an equal game from himself and the monster. Victor was trying to make the monster how HE wanted him to be, not how the monster wanted himself to be. Moral of the story is, changing people to try to be like what other people want them to be is wrong. Everyone was born with their own life to make their own decisions and their own regrets.
Jekyll knows that he cannot be caught because he carries out his evil thoughts through Hyde, who nobody suspects to be Jekyll as that would be seen as nonsense in that time period. However, the decision to kill himself is Jekyll’s conscience taking over and realizing that the possibility of Hyde being a member of society only makes things worse and that he is sorry for his actions and the trouble that he has
The monster is usually in the role of the bad guy. The first time a monster is described in a story we usually make up our minds about them being a monster because of their looks. They are big and ugly so we think they must be monsters. Storytellers have always used monsters to create fear and excite people but monsters also have another role, that is to label people or things we do not like. When a person is labelled a monster it is usually because they are evil and wicked.
He cannot keep his intellect in line with his emotions. The monster, outcast from society, seeks vengeance. "If I cannot inspire love, I will cause fear," says the monster to his creator.

This monster also becomes angry at his master throughout the novel and kills many people that he cared for. In the end, it is Mary Shelly’s goal to make the reader feel pity for the monster as he explains that his only reason for murder was caused by his master’s hurtful words and the cruelness of people. The monster seems to walk a path between being a man or a monster throughout the novel, which plays with the reader’s emotions. This can make it even harder for a reader to clearly determine if the monster is really a monster or human.

In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein, the protagonist, produces a monster and instead of teaching his monster the mannerisms and norms of society, he abandons him. Victor expects his monster to make it in the harsh, critical society without being taught correct demeanors because he believes that having correct mannerisms is intuitive. A common viewpoint of the book is that Frankenstein’s monster should receive the blame, because he should have had proper nature, but in reality, society nurtured him to act out. Victor isolated the monster, and other members of society followed in Victor’s example and also treated him as so; which made the creature’s actions monstrous. Frankenstein played God, causing society to view his creature as a monster and as a risk to the public, but Frankenstein did not intend to create the monster as dangerous in nature; society nurtured him to act as a beast.
