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.
Victor didn't comply with the monsters only request. So in order to get victors attention the monster mad his life miserable. He was killing victors loved ones daily and there was nothing victor could do about it. This wasn't the monsters intentions, but he couldn't live in the world where everybody was scared of him. He didn't want to give out a mean or destructive image but he just didn't know any better.
We encouraged to understand things from the creatures perspective because of the way he is just abandoned by Victor and the way in which the Delacey’s deserted him and we also sympathise with him when he is shot by the father of the young girl that he saved from drowning. We are made to understand the creature’s anger and frustration because for all the good he did for humans he only got treated badly in return. After knowing that he could not continue living with humans any longer, the creature asks victor to create him a companion, someone that he could interact with someone as hideous as him and someone that he could be happy with. In chapter 17 victor takes over telling the story. He is asked by the creature to create a companion for him.
He is disgusted of the idea that he would be bringing another horrible creature into the world which had the potential to wreak havoc and potentially procreate. The creature discovers that frankenstein has broken his promise and declares further revenge on Frankenstein. Unfortunately, breaking the promise was not in the best interest of Frankenstein because this resulted in the death of his good friend Henry Clerval as well as his wife Elizabeth Lavenza. He is now all alone, his brother is dead, his father, his best friend, and his wife as well. This really destroys Frankenstein, He now hates the creature more than ever, he has taken everything away from him, Victor dedicates his life to trying to destroying the
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.
He went from being benevolent to full of vengeance, all because of his deeprooted hatred for Victor Frankenstein. This is further evidence of Frankenstein’s narcissism, inability to take responsibility, and immaturity. Both Henry Clerval and Justine Moritz were mistreated and the victims of Victor’s own personal issues. They faced untimely deaths after being nothing but respectable and good, because of their seemingly harmless relationship with Victor Frankenstein. Not only did his selfishness drag them down, his lack of responsibility and confidence did as well.
The first example of this was when the monster is talking about the “groans of Clerval” and that they were not “music to [his] ears” (pg 229). The creature showing remorse could mean that he really regretted all the things he did. It's like when one gets really mad and does a lot of things that they eventually regret in the long run. It is like the anger takes over and they do not know what they are doing. This is most likely the same thing that happened to the creature, his rage and thirst for revenge may have provoked his killing spree.
Also, throughout Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Victor finds himself literally alone when the monster he created, murders th... ... middle of paper ... ...s! "(Shelley 128) Victor clearly informs us that all this time he spent wasting his knowledge on death and science rather than being out into the world, he was busy wasting it on hatred. On the other hand, the Monster had no say in his isolation. Victor abandoned him due to his looks and fear while the world just did it naturally.
He creates monster that is responsible for the death of his good friend and his beloved wife. Because of the horrible news of the death of Victor’s wife, Victor’s father dies. Another important character is the monster. The monster’s life is also sad. Because of his appalling appearance, humans are afraid of him, so he is forced to be alone.
The creature wanted Frankenstein to feel what he felt. This is where the revenge takes place and the creature killed everyone Frankenstein loved. The way people treated the creature just by his outwardly appearance is the way society in general views and treats people even today. Society is unjust and cruel at times to people who are less pretty, less thin, less attractive in general. The creature felt this every day of his life and lost the love of his creator and never found a suitable life partner all due to society shunning the less outwardly beautiful.
