Have you ever wanted to find someone to love? Well, the monster wanted to find someone just like him to love. Victor Frankenstein created a monster that was nice and helped people. But, people treated him bad for doing nice things. The monster felt lonely so Victor and the monster made a promise that if he created a female creature for the monster to love that he will go live in the forest and eat nuts and berries and leave humanity alone. So, Victor went to go build a female creature, but before he made the creature come to life he destroyed it and the monster was devastated. Yes, I think that Victor made the right decision to destroy the creature.
After Frankenstein’s first creation which had taken a turn from glory, to fear and disgust to which he finally learns his lesson. Frankenstein’s monster tracks Victor down to ask him to “create a female for [him]” due to all the loneliness and suffering the monster had to endure. At first, Frankenstein shuts down the monster because he did not want another creature roaming the Earth and causing chaos. After much persuasion Frankenstein agrees to create a second monster but this time he creates it fully aware of his
Frankenstein deserves ridicule for creating a living being that he instantly neglects for the simple fact that it looks unsightly. His neglect causes the monster to roam Europe in search of guidance and friendship, neither of which does he ever receive. Nevertheless, it is difficult not to feel sorry for Frankenstein when all of his loved ones die at the hands of his creature. His reason for not creating another monster is valid: he does not want to risk the two creatures mating and creating a race of beasts to terrorize the world forever. He does not want to be responsible for the death of humanity, so his refusal to create a female monster makes sense. It is a shame he can't trust what he gave birth
Frankenstein’s and society’s rejection of the monster, however, drove him to an uneven passionate pursuit for a companion. He forced Frankenstein to create a female monster, and he provided motivation by killing Frankenstein’s loved ones and threatening to kill more of them. The monster recalls in this final scene of Shelley’s novel how his desire drove him to evil. “. . . do you think that I was then dead to agony and remorse?--He . . . suffered not more in the consummation of the deed;--oh! Not the ten-thousandth portion of the anguish that was mine during the lingering detail of its execution. A frightful selfishness hurried me on. . . .” (153) At that point in the novel, the monster has changed from good in nature to evil in nature. His own desires are more important to him than the well-being of others and he is willing to commit murder in order ensure the fulfillment of his desire.
Victor Frankenstein was a man who created a monster built with random body parts. The topic is about if did Victor made the right decision by destroying the female monster? My first reason is there is no guarantee they will work as a couple, such as he may reject her or she may reject him. Second, they may not get along.
This is when Frankenstein decides to do the right thing and not create a female monster for his creation to be with. When Victor is faced with a question on the subject, he thinks about his morals and says that the monster, “may render him the most miserable of men, but (the monster) shall never make base of him in his own eyes.” (129) This shows that Victor might actually have some heart after all, at least for himself, if not the ones he cares about. He believes that if he were to, “create another like (the monster), their joint wickedness may desolate the world.” (129) Ceding to the monster’s demands would be unethical because of two reasons: another monster to wreak havoc upon the world, and the potential for “monster babies”, which is to be feared for obvious reasons. Therefore, Victor is correct in refusing to grant the monster’s demands.
Upon further probing, there is perhaps a deeper terror rooted in Frankenstein, which subtly appears to stem his hesitancy at creating not just another monster, but specifically a female monster. Because Victor Frankenstein fears the existence of a female free of restrictions that he cannot impose, he destroys her, thus eliminating the female’s options of becoming either completely feminine through becoming a mother and mate, or totally unfeminine by opting to leave her partner and face the world alone.
Alone and eager, Victor Frankenstein desperately worked to create a different type of art. Frankenstein stepped further into the science world and did something no other human had, being so that he did have the correct mindset and objects to do so. He was on a journey to go beyond death. His motive was to push himself. What he failed to do was look further into his work and also look further into how things would work out after his experiments were successful. Maybe, just maybe, Frankenstein started an experiment that should have been left at just an idea.
Mary Shelley’s ability to create such multidimensional characters in Frankenstein proves that writing is a powerful tool that has the ability to provoke vastly different opinions amongst readers. Even though each individual reading the story is reading the exact same words, their interpretation of those words often leads to opposing views in regards to the fate of the characters. The creature, in particular, has been a popular topic of discussion when conducting a close read of the novel due to his arguable versatility as a victim and villain. The concept of the villain has evolved over the years, however its basis still rests upon the simple fact that as a character in the story, their actions are a result of malicious intentions
In the novel Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, the character Victor Frankenstein illustrates betrayal in the way he abandons his creation, with no hesitation he leaves him behind. With the feeling of abandonment ,the creature feels anger towards Victor which leads the “monster” to become a villain. Love and family are all the monster wants, but it is something that Victor could not give due to his own internal battles. As result, the monster begins to take Victor’s loved ones such as: little William and his wife Elizabeth. The monster kills
Frankenstein continues to prove his label as a monster in the novel when he makes the sudden decision to abandons his own creation solely because of his physical appearance. The very moment the monster opens his eyes, to Frankenstein, “the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out of the room” (Shelley, pg. 59). With no thought to what could happen mentally to his creation due to his abandonment, along with the lack of concern for what could happen to the people in his society letting a monster run loose with no guidance or love from it’s own creator, proves how much of a monster Frankenstein is. He leaves his creation to suffer the scrutiny of the judgemental society he lives in, explaining the root of his anger and the mental state the creature is in when he chooses to get
Victor Frankenstein worried about everyone else and playing God, rather than trying to do right, morally. Victor had to go through a lot of steps and difficulties to create the monster. After the creation of the monster, everyone including Victor abandoned him. Victor refused to create a girl creature to avoid a lot of problems, but he did not realize the hell the monster would end up causing him. Victor regrets trying to play God because his action would cause him great troubles and consequences.
Ultimately, knowing his mistakes does not change his behaviour; Frankenstein continues in a downward spiral after listening to the creature’s story, and unceremoniously deceives the creature, leading to more problems. One cannot simply blame the creature for the deaths that occur in the story because it is truly Frankenstein who is aware of consequences but succumbs to fear.
Throughout the story the Frankenstein’s monster is referred to as a true monster because of the different acts that he has committed, yet throughout the story the reader is made aware of the compassion and morality that Victor’s” creature possesses, like a real human. Victor is the true monster in this horror novel, because he possesses many of the characteristics that would define what a monster is. Victor Frankenstein created his monster due to his eagerness for alchemy and his unnatural obsession with being like God. Victor does not take into account the consequences of his actions. Victor rejects his creation the moment he lays eyes on it, and this caused the monster to perform the acts that he did. The cruel rejection is what begins the a journey that will soon enough be end of Victor. After Victor decides to go back on creating his monster a mate, he then destroys the half made creature which anger Frankenstein’s monster and this cause him wreak revenge on his creator. The monster tells Victor that he will be at his wedding night and the killing spree beings, Victor loses his father, and his friend Henry Clerval because of what Victor had done. In my opinion I believe that should have stuck to creating his monster a mate and this would have made things easier for him and
