When Victor abandons the monster he runs away and tries to forget about his failed creation. It was extremely dangerous for Victor to flee his experiment because the monster soon becomes aggressive with hate and is curious to know why Victor left him; furthermore, the monster becomes obsessed with self-learning and knowledge. Mary Shelly explains in her novel Frankenstein the cause of Victors abandonment was the rage of the monster that he created. The monster’s reaction to his creator is “Was man, indeed, at once so powerful, yet so vicious and base? (119) The monster’s curiosity was similar to his creator’s strive for knowledge.
He defies God, just like the Greek story of Prometheus. Since the monster escaped, he cannot take it upon himself to realize that it could be potentially dangerous. He should man up and just get over it. Later on in the story when the monster destroys everything dear to him, Frankenstein learns that only God has the ability t... ... middle of paper ... ...new species will arise and terrorize humans. Since he refused, the monster becomes angry and kills the doctor’s newlywed, Elizabeth.
After creating his monster Victor runs away and hides in fear from his monster. As soon as Dr. Frankenstein leaves, his monster travels to Victor’s hometown of Geneva and murders his father’s youngest son, Victor’s brother, William. When Frankenstein's monster stumbles upon an innocent child he thinks, “‘an idea seized me that this little creature was unprejudiced, and had too short a time to have imbibed a horror of deformity. If, therefore, I could seize him and educate him as my companion and friend, I should not be so desolate in this peopled earth’” (102). This statement that the monster makes to to Robert Walton shows how he did not intend to hurt the child.
Their relationship is a tumultuous one, mainly due to the fact that Frankenstein created the Monster out of a wish to be some sort of god and be able to play with the balance of life and death. Afterwards, he comes to deeply regret his action and abandons the Monster by throwing him out into the world without any education or guidance. Because of this, throughout the book, the Monster harbors resentment towards Frankenstein and dedicates his life to make Frankenstein’s a living hell. Out of the many horrible things that the Monster did to achieve this goal, the main evil action I will be focusing on is the murder of William, Frankenstein’s younger brother and the framing of his nanny for the murder. After being continually rejected by not only his creator, but countless other humans based only on his gruesome appearance, the Monster decides to exact revenge on humankind and especially on Frankenstein for giving life to such a horrible creature as himself.
The monsters can potentially take over whatever they please, “A race of devils be propagated.” (163) Thought Frankenstein to himself. “Shall I, in cold blood, set loose upon the earth [a] demon….” (162) Argues Doctor Frankenstein with his creation. If Frankenstein does create a mate for the monster there is a chance that the monster will not keep his promise and still terrorize everyone because the monster is pure evil and can not be trusted. Another factor that has to concern with Frankenstein not creating the monster is because he is so evil and corrupted. Frankenstein first of all has a brain of a criminal and therefore doesn’t really know any other thing except to kill and be evil.
This shows how his drive for knowledge to be able to create life is damaging his health both mentally and physically. Furthermore, when the monster escapes from Victor’s laboratory it stangles Victor’s brother, William Frankenstein, to death. Victor must now bear the guilt knowing that he is responsible for the death because he created the monster and allowed it to escape. He must also keep the beast a secret from everyone else for fear the he would be held responsible for his brother’s death or they will believe he has gone insane, both of which results in Vict... ... middle of paper ... ...was in the midst of creating the female monster he decided to destroy it which ultimately led to Henry’s, Elizabeth’s, and his own death. Robert Walton also made the decision to continue through the perilous terrain in search of the North Pole and for Victor’s monster.
From this moment , the new creation is idetified as a monster , and just like that will be treated during the whole story , not only by a cruel and intolerant society , but by his creator, Victor , who rejects him from the beginning. Frankenstein , for me , is the sad story of those who are shaped by hostility , who spend their lives running away from hatred and looking for something called happiness. This is the story of a ... ... middle of paper ... ...e purest creature of earth? "(p.210) The monster has fulfilled his threaten : is the answer to an indiferent Victor who could have stopped everythig from the beginnig but that now is paying the highest price : seing those he loves killed by his own creation. Victor is , with his decisions , the guilty one for every murder: he is the one who decided to create human being , but was not able to be responsible for him and he could have stopped the deaths by creating a female mate for his monster , instead , he broke a promise knowing the consequences.
Victor could not believe what he had done and abandons the monster because he's confused. The monster tries to integrate himself into society but only to be beaten and not wanted by the people. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, because only God can create life, cause death, and judge. In the novel, Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is the real lawbreaker and monster in this story. It was surprising how he had the intelligence to gain and apply the knowledge and skills to create life with the power of science.
This paper will explain the many ways that the characters lost their innocence throughout the novel. The plot deals with the conflict that is inside Victor Frankenstein, who produces a monstrous creature. Victor is disgusted at the site of the creature he has created. "I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then, but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motion, it became a thing such as even Dante could not have conceived"(43). After Victor rejects the monster, he meets a family that brings out his sensitive side.
In Frankenstein, Mary Shelley mocks society when she makes the monster very gentle and then turns him into the monster people see him as. She also shows the themes of obsession with vengeance and the quest for knowledge when Frankenstein creates the monster then abandons him triggering revenge within the monster. Victor creates the monster with thoughts to change the world, but instead he ends up putting his loved ones in danger. He seeks revenge on the monster he creates causing further conflict. The monster is the good one in the book but even he seeks knowledge about who he is, and why he is here, but that does not end well and he relies on his destructive nature to find the answers causing both pain and grief on those around him and on himself.
