This subsequently caused a further disintegration of the Whig party in politics between the period 1783-1815. To conclude, the Whigs lack of political success cannot be blamed on an individual issue. A series of events after the start of the 1780’s led to Whig party splits and a lack of unity. Unity within the party was essential to take office. The French revolution was a major contributor to the Whigs lack of political success as it ont only weakened the party due to loss of members but also due to the exposure internal party problems.
The most moving thing of all is the way the creation talks to the Captain about himself, he revels his life in a complex was all his misery, hurt and ambitions........

Though Shelley’s literal monster is not a hero he is made so only when compared to her ruthlessly determined man of science, the monster’s villainous father, Victor Frankenstein. Abandoned by his creator, Shelley’s creature is left to explore the world. In his endeavors he finds hostility. The creature’s quest for acceptance is rivaled only by his quest for knowledge, like his father. Trying to educate himself about the world, the creature happens upon a cottage.
The isolation from those willing to support him, the rejection from society, and the knowledge of a hazardous scientific impossibility all account for Victor Frankenstein’s fatal misconception of reality, and his ultimate downfall.

The nature of Victor’s secluded lifestyle originated within his childhood, and his overindulgence into the subject of natural philosophy. As a child, Victor spent much of his time reading because... ... middle of paper ... ...are responsible for Victor’s tragic downfall. If Mary Shelley’s characters, as a whole, were more accepting of those who are different or struggle with an abnormality, Frankenstein’s monster would not have been subjected to such tormenting desolation, which eventually drove the monster to violence.
With this pursuit of knowledge, not only did Victor isolate himself from society but also from those who loved him, such as his fiancée Elizabeth and his father. However, it is with this knowledge and ambition, that winds up destroying him and those closest to him. His project he felt would better human kind and possibly make a name for himself, which is ironic because he brought only evil to society and death to his name.

After his creation comes to life, he refuses to accept his obligation as the creator to his creation.

Sometimes a human’s thirst for fame or recognition becomes extreme: just like the case of Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein wanted to have recognition about his accomplishments as a young fellow. He venture out into the world away from his native land Geneva, and throughout this venture he discovered his fascination for the human anatomy. His idea was to create life, gather human body parts, stick them together and hope to bring it to life. Frankenstein was successful he brought the “monster” to life; however, his excitement soon vanished, he felt disgusted and disappoint with his creation.
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.
