This can only be done in part by not creating a second monster for the world to deal with. I think that the creation certainly deserves some sort of love and companion, especially some acknowledgement from his creator, other than Frankenstein running in fear. However, I do not believe that making him a "creature of the opposite sex, that is hideous as [the creature's self]” will solve his inferiority complex and feelings of abandonment from his creator and mankind (145). Maybe Frankenstein needs to work on his own personal relationship with his creation before that possibility is lost forever. Works Cited Shelley, Mary.
Once Victor is successful in his creation, everything falls apart in his life. He is to blame for this tragedy not his creation because he is the creator behind the operation and he was suppose to keep everything under control. Dr. Victor Frankenstein, on the basis of discovery for science, did not put any thought into the affect of what his experimentation could have risking everything he held dear. Critics may say that the creation made by Victor is to blame for the violence and destruction following the experiment. Victor is the responsible party.
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. Victor Frankenstein serves as an instrument of suffering of others and contributes to the tragic vision as a whole in this novel. He hurts those surrounding him by his selfish character and his own creation plots against his master due to the lack of happiness and love. The audience should learn from Frankenstein’s tragic life and character to always remain humble. We should never try to take superiority that is not granted to us because like victor we shall suffer and perish.
In his idealism, Victor is blinded, and so the creation accuses him for delivering him into a world where he could not ever be entirely received by the people who inhabit it. Not only failing to foresee his faulty idealism, nearing the end of the tale, he embarks upon a final journey, consciously choosing to pursue his creation in vengeance, while admitting he himself that it may result in his own doom. The creation of an unloved being and the quest for the elixir of life holds Victor Frankenstein more accountable for his own death than the creation himself. Delivered into the world, full grown and without a guardian to teach him the ways of the human world, the creation discovers that he is alone, but not without resource. He attempts to communicate to his creator, however, he is incapable of speech.
To the society and Victor he was but to the viewer, he was only a helpless creator who lost his way. Victor Frankenstein shows that experimenting with the work of God or nature is immoral and will only end in corruption. No one can play God. The movie shows that a person who chases notoriety for his or her own personal intentions may find the consequences of their actions to be truly demoralizing, causing him to become the monster more than his creation. His faults in his creation lead to his demise.
Few human experiences are as wretched as facing the fact that one is alone; perhaps because isolation is so easily recognized and dwelled upon when one is without friends to distract from life’s woes. Now consider isolation at its most extreme and ponder what such abject loneliness would work upon man. This is the fate of Dr. Frankenstein and the Monster in Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein. Frankenstein is the story of how one man’s experiment has the unintended consequence of making Frankenstein and his creation, the Monster, completely isolated from the rest of humanity: the creator of the unnatural monster dares not relate his tale lest due to his punishing guilt, and the hideous being himself shares neither kinship nor experience with anyone.
It was surprising how he had the intelligence to gain and apply the knowledge and skills to create life with the power of science. Frankenstein should have not done this because it is unlawful to do something only the lord could create, which is life. Life can only be given by God, he is the one who can contrive life. Frankenstein had done an experiment that he did not expect to be successful but i... ... middle of paper ... ...a result of that he couldn't save justine from death. Instead, he remained mute in order to save his own freedom.
One of the brightest symbols of Shelley’s “Frankenstein” is the creature itself. This symbol represents the depth of the personal tragedy and the inability of human beings to take responsibility for their actions. The creator, Victor Frankenstein is not a monster but should be considered one in the first place. Victor’s ambitions and ego make him create a human form of life without even thinking about the consequences. The scientist was so caught up in his emotions he never thought of the one creature that would be filled with human emotions, life and resemble a heart that can be broken similar to ours.
Victor Frankenstein is more concerned with the mortal fear of his own death than the death of his betrothed. Compared to the death of Henry, “ I gasped for breath, and throwing myself on the body…” (). This is viable evidence that Victor cared for Henry more than his fiancé. When Victor creates his creation, his fate has already been drawn for him and his loved ones. If he had never dabbled in alchemy, or science, if he had taken responsibility for his creation, if he had abided by the basic societal norms of the world, then the dead would have stayed dead, and people would not be dead
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.
