The abomination then enacts his revenge by strangling the people who mean the most to Victor: his brother William, his best friend Henry Clerval, and his wife Elizabeth. Also, the wretch plots evidence for William’s murder on Justine, the family servant. Furthermore, the monster claims that, “from that moment I declared everlasting war against him who had formed me and sent me forth to this insupportable misery” (Shelley 121). The monster acts in such a way due to Victor’s refusal to create him a female monster with whom he could live and grow with. Normal society neglects the monster, so he feels as though that if a female wretch was created for him, he would become jovial and sociable, regardless of his grotesque appearance that both Victor and humanity scorn him
