There are many ways a person can be a monster. If someone does not look good they are defined as a monster, if someone kills people they are defined as a monster, and if their beliefs are different to ours we also call them a monster. Keeping all this in mind it is very hard to label someone or something a monster, but in this essay I will try to describe who is more monstrous- the creator Frankenstein or his creation the monster. Frankenstein could be called a monster because he is trying to play god.

The monster struggled to obtain love or acceptance from anyone throughout his lifetime, though it is what he craved the most. In response to this disappointment, the monster reverted to threats and brutal behavior. He named Victor as the source of his pain, as he was the creator that brought him into this world only to leave him alone to suffer. In search of his creator for revenge, the monster came across Victor’s younger brother William. After making the connection between the two, the monster first killed William then planted the evidence on Victor’s family friend, Justine; leading to the murder of two of Victor’s close ones.
Frankenstein was too swept up in the idea of bringing an inanimate object to life to realise that what he was creating a monster.

He has nothing to live for, his revenge is complete and because of this he wants forgiveness, but it is too late. My sympathies have changed throughout the novel, at first they lay with the monster as Frankenstein was neglectful to his family whilst creating the monster, then neglectful to the monster when created, and also goes on to neglect his duties to save Justine's life. However, Frankenstein's development into a more courageous character, and the monsters conscious decision to become a killer, means my final sympathies lie with Frankenstein.

Many people believe this simply due to the movies that were made about the novel. In the actual novel, the creature is a dull yellow color and is unevenly stitched together. His nails and his lips are black, and his body is disproportioned (Shelley 43). Due to his appearance and his loneliness, he eventually seeks revenge on his creator and goes on murderous rampages.

Frankenstein wanted so badly to play God but when he had finally gotten what he wanted his disrespect for others took over and made him the ultimate villain. He stole what his creation needed to survive, love, acceptance, and an authority figure. Ultimately, it is Frankenstein’s selfishness that brings down not only his own self, but that of his creation as well. Despite Frankenstein's very violent nature and the actions he took within the book people judged Frankenstein before even getting to know him which eventually made him even more mad. Frankenstein is referred to as a monster, yet throughout the novel the reader is made aware of the compassion and morality that Frankenstein has.
The monster describes the pain that he was forced to go through, alone, and enlightens the reader about his motives for his mass killings. He saw his world as a dark awful place where he was alone and pushed to lose sight of who he was. He is pushed to the limit and decides to kill those close to his creator, to feel the same pain that he endured. This is still how things work in today’s society with bullying. Someone who might be different from others is shunned from their community whether it big or small, and retaliates causing more problems for them and others involved.
