The monster feels more indeed of betrayal of Victor because what he does to him. The entire tragedy of the novel is cause because of Victor's actions and his purpose In the Novel Victor Frankenstein is a betrayal of life itself because it should be given naturally and not created by a scientist man. The monster is actually the one who is majorly betrayed, he may look like a hideous dangerous monster on the outside but, not one within himself. From the beginning of the novel, Victor betrays the monster, and this betrayal is seen on many levels throughout the novel. More importantly Victor is the reason why most of the deaths were because of his creation.
This hatred caused the monster to feel awful and run away in despair. Victor Frankenstein felt that he was justified to give up on his creation because it was ugly. This is completely unfair to the Monster because it has not done anything wrong, yet Victor Frankenstein feels he has the right to immediately turn his back on his creation. This is something that is frowned upon in society, but is sometimes the case. If this betrayal had not have happened, the Monsters nature could have been completely different.
From this moment , the new creation is idetified as a monster , and just like that will be treated during the whole story , not only by a cruel and intolerant society , but by his creator, Victor , who rejects him from the beginning. Frankenstein , for me , is the sad story of those who are shaped by hostility , who spend their lives running away from hatred and looking for something called happiness. This is the story of a ... ... middle of paper ... ...e purest creature of earth? "(p.210) The monster has fulfilled his threaten : is the answer to an indiferent Victor who could have stopped everythig from the beginnig but that now is paying the highest price : seing those he loves killed by his own creation. Victor is , with his decisions , the guilty one for every murder: he is the one who decided to create human being , but was not able to be responsible for him and he could have stopped the deaths by creating a female mate for his monster , instead , he broke a promise knowing the consequences.
The “clean slate” is shown in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley when the monster is born. Society and the bad persona wrapped around the monster creates a horrific atmosphere around his character. But, this creature could be seen as an outcast looking for his creator. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, she portrays two perspectives of how one is born, evil or with a clean mindset. Victor Frankenstein views his creation as a disgrace to society and believes that it was born evil.
Finally, Victor is the villain on the Gothic level. There he is the villain, because he and the creature are part of a greater being, and Victor's subconscious wants William and Elizabeth dead, which is why the monster kills them. Despite the fact that Victor didn't physically murder anyone, he was the villain of the novel.
Frankenstein is a novel that is defined by its distortion of humanity. Mary Shelley’s objective is to expose how horrible humans can be to each other. In her eyes the monster represented the cruelty of mankind. Not all humans in the novel were cruel, but Victor was the creator and the monster was part of him. The parable of Frankenstein is that in seeking to represent himself, he created a monster which is a depiction of how he truly feels about humanity.
In many instances the hero and the villain are very easy to tell between, but in the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley these two symbols come together to create confusion among readers. Many can argue that because Frankenstein’s creation viciously murdered so many people he is the obvious the bad guy in the story but what people must take into account is all the things in the creations life that caused him to behave as he did. He was one of the ugliest beings on earth, not knowing where he came from, and having no one love him. He did not begin to turn violent until his creator left him to go the world alone and be disowned by everyone that met him. 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.
Frankenstein can also be 'melodramatic' and may be using this to evoke sympathy for himself. In this novel, I feel sympathy for both Victor Frankenstein and the monster. I am sympathetic towards the monster as Victor Frankenstein started this whole thing by creating it, although the monster killing another that had not harmed him was unjustified. When first created the monster is treated like an inhuman wretch. Frankenstein was too swept up in the idea of bringing an inanimate object to life to realise that what he was creating a monster.
But I paused when I reflected on the story I had to tell.”(Frankenstein, Mary Shelley), showed that Victor had the knowledge that he was the reason William was dead. Frankenstein didn’t need to know about the murderer, because he was the murderer. No Hero in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein cites “He is so self-centered that his lack of interaction and love for others after his experiment has been completed, would barely qualify him as a person, if the difference between being human and being a person lies in the ability to have relationships with others.” This statement suggests to me that he... ... middle of paper ... ...in led himself down the path of destruction. He lost his friend, wife, and brother. He was loved by no one.
The confrontation between the two demonstrates Victor 's weaknesses as an individual. Although Victor is the Creature 's creator, he refers to his creation as an "abhorred monster" (Shelley 68) and is willing to "extinguish the spark which he so negligently bestowed" (Shelley 68) upon him. This demonstrates Victor 's lack of responsibility. His goal was to create life, essentially to play God. Once the monster began to murder those dearest to Victor, he failed to take responsibility for the creature 's actions.
