As a result, the monster can be described as the epitome of the fact that isolation from family and society leads to a pathway of evil and hatred. The catalyst to evil and hatred is isolation from family and society. Shelley successfully proves this in many instances with different characters. With Walton, she showed how his emotional isolation was letting his excessive ambition get the better of him, which ultimately would have resulted in evil and hatred. She evidently proved with Frankenstein that isolation leads to a terrible fate; that being his monster destroyed his family which resulting in him falling onto the roads of evil and hatred by dedicating his last days to seek revenge against the monster.
After Frankenstein creates his creature, he is so frightened and disgusted by the creature?s appearance that he abandons it. 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. The creature did not know how to take care of himself and was given no direction or leadership. He left not knowing where he would go or how he would survive.
He is neglected because of his creator. The monster says “The hateful day when I received life! I accurse my creator. Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust?” Victor is wholly at fault for his actions, image and evil. When Victor flees the creature, he becomes lonely and unhappy.
From the moment the monster is created, he is looked at as disgusting and horrific. His own creator, Victor, looked at him when he finished with “breathless horror…disgust filled [his] heart. Unable to endure the aspect of the being [he] had created” (Shelley 59). Victors runs from his own creation, leaving the newborn monster confused and alone. If having his own creator reject him wasn’t enough isolation, he is soon shunned and hated by society.
Victor’s dream suddenly turns into a nightmare when his creation is portrayed as a monster and "no mortal could support the horror of that countenance" (44). Victors first mistake that leads to his downfall is abandoning the creature without first taking responsibility for the being he had created which evident to many factors of destruction. There are quite a few key factors that contribute to the destruction of Victor’s life as well as those around him. Victor envelops his life to creating a being with no thought on what his creation could bring to the ones he loves. After the monster awakes from his death, Victor is "unable to endure the aspect of the being [he] created, [he] rushed out of ... ... middle of paper ... ...l, Victors great need for knowledge and his rage toward the monster led to the death of all he loved, the being he devoted his life to, and himself.
The monster’s plea to “not desert [him] in the hour of trail” expresses the severity of his desire [Shelley 121]. Despite his benevolence, he is again exiled from another family. By now, he is “miserable” from the “barbarity of man,” and his reflections on his experiences make him assume he is “malicious because he is miserable” [Shelly 96]. Although he is aware that society is corrupt and the reason for his horrible experiences, he still turns to society to sooth his sadness by asking Victor to create a creature of his own
From that point on the creatures’ heart becomes cold and makes sure to destroy his creator. When Victor dies the creature repents for the damage that he has done and would live with continuing pain till his death. “…My agony was still superior to thine; for the bitter sting of remorse will not cease to rankle in my wounds until death shall close them forever” (380). William Frankenstein is the younger brother and ... ... middle of paper ... ...erstood that the real monster was his ambition which led to his overall tragedy. He died miserable because of his pride; one could say he is selfish because when creating the creature he did not think of the benefit of others.
The creature is painted as an outcast, as well as a villain who wants to impede Victor’s journey. He is abandoned by Victor, who recalls “ breathless horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out of the room”(35). The monster is rejected by the very being who injected him with life, and he receives worse treatment from the unsuspecting and close minded humans of neighboring lands. The creature describes how he was harassed “until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons”(74).
The creature tells Victor, “I [was] terrified when I viewed myself in a transparent pool! At first I stared back, unable to believe that it was indeed I who was reflected in the mirror; and when I became fully convinced that I was in reality the monster that I am, I was filled with the bitterest sensations of despondence and mortification” (108). Despite their similarities, Victor and his creation differ greatly. Only after rejection does the creature turn to evil; while Victor acts out of greed. Victor’s self-centered behavior effects everyone in the novel; he hurts his family’s feelings, he lets those that he loves die, and abandons his own creation.
All of the problems that faced Victor and the misery it caused his family was all due to his choice to abandon his creation when it needed him most. His personal failures as a human being causes the deaths of his friends and family who were completely innocent. Frankenstein’s failure to make any competent decisions lead to his life of misery and constant failure. Not even Walton is innocent of this. Walton’ naiveté and grief caused him to turn his back on the creation, who wants nothing more than to have a companion, just like Walton.
