In conclusion, Frankenstein abandons his creature because of its appearance. To the creature, Frankenstein is his father and when he left him, he felt neglected and abandoned.

Also, throughout Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Victor finds himself literally alone when the monster he created, murders th... ... middle of paper ... ...s! "(Shelley 128) Victor clearly informs us that all this time he spent wasting his knowledge on death and science rather than being out into the world, he was busy wasting it on hatred. On the other hand, the Monster had no say in his isolation. Victor abandoned him due to his looks and fear while the world just did it naturally.
Both internal and external consequences were the cause of being isolated from society. Frankenstein began to feel depressed after the creation of the monster and decided to isolate himself from his friends and family. Frankenstein kept his creation a secret from everyone because he was afraid of the consequences. Ironically, Frankenstein was the main problem for all of his sufferings. He thought that he could keep everyone safe if he were to not tell them about the monster, however, everyone died because he wanted to keep everyone from the truth.
Victor’s absence in his life since the monster’s childhood is what initiated is behaviors. From then on, society’s rejection as well as his own creator’s ignorance furthered the monster’s desire for vengeance. Victor abandoning him, the lack of parental figures in his life, and the lack of “family” kept it in the monster’s head that he would never be accepted. After realizing that his creator didn’t want him he attempted to find happiness and love elsewhere but was rejected from society. Everyone was mortified of his appearance and that made it impossible for him to feel normal.
The monster felt as if he was alone and that no one wanted to associate with him, and as a result, he rebelled against society in a form of revenge. “Believe me, Frankenstein, I was benevolent; my soul glowed with love and humanity; but am I not alone, miserably alone” (___?___). The author of this novel attempts to convey how society has an impact on one's emotional and mental status. By feeling rejected from society, a person feels as if they do not fit in with the world. The reason one is shunned by society or looked at differently is that they are not seen like the others, even if they have similarities from the inside like
The creature is brought down alone with his creator. Frankenstein's wished to be happy and worthy, yet it was forever imposed in his situation. The outcome of the creature was not the initial intension of Frankenstein. However, through evil deeds and wrongdoing tragedy was destined to strike. The life of Frankenstein was ill- fated from the begging of his plans to make a creation, Frankenstein lost his loved ones and never got the chance to live a life full of flourished goals and dreams.
From the monster’s point of view, we see how the monster does not understand why he is treated the way he is. He does not understand why he was created or even who his creator was: “And what was I? Of my creation and creator I was absolutely Ignorant; but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property. I was, besides, endowed with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome”(Shelley, 96). The hideous figure that the monster describes is the result of the rushed work Frankenstein did.
As the monster is abused by Victor is loses its compassion, and only seeks revenge. Victor, who never had any compassion for his monster, wants to get vengeance for the people who his monster killed. The monster has compassion at first, but the more Frankenstein tries to seek revenge on him, the less compassion he has. Frankenstein was shown compassion all his life because of his loving parents and their money so he does not have any compassion. Both the monster and Victor try to get revenge on each other, but neither succeeds.
He had to learn to survive, learn that humans will fear him, and learn how to love completely on his own. Victor refused to help him by creating a new monster for him to love. Only a child, he felt alone and desperate for compassion. Victor, afraid of the creature’s power after he created life, abandoned his son. After Victor neglected his creation, he felt terribly alone, “’I was a poor, helpless, miserable wretch; I knew, and could distinguish, nothing; but feeling pain invade me on all sides, I sat down and wept’” (Shelly 72).
