Frankenstein Essay

Victor Frankenstein determined his own fate by all of the bad choices he made. One of Victor’s mistakes was creating a monster that he really had no control over. The second mistake victor made was abandoning the monster because of fright without know what the monsters intentions were. Another critical mistake Victor made was not creating the monster a companion which then resulted in the terrible events which occurred throughout the story.
The most critical mistake that determined Victor’s fate was the creating of the monster. The thought of evening creating a human being frighten you but Victor decided to do it anyway. Also Victor never thought about what this monster might

Only if Victor would had not ran out on the monster so soon he would have known the monster was trying be friendly to him and that he had no intentions of hurting Victor in any kind of way. That one gesture is half of why the madness of the monster was taking out upon Victor’s entire family. The hate that the monster had built up towards Victor was took out on Victors family because the monster wanted to do something to hurt Victor just like Victor hurt him by leaving him alone in a new world that he knew nothing about. The monster also had to learn a lot of new things without any of the help form Frankenstein but he seem to figure out many new things on his by watching others sneaking and watching other who also were terrified on …show more content…
His fate was determined by all of the mistakes he made and his lack of thinking before doing things that could be totally life changing. Those series of mistakes eventually led to the least desired which were the death of his love ones and eventually the death of Victor Frankenstein himself. If he could have changed the first choice he made by creating the monster his life would have been changed drastically and his life might’ve been different. Also he could have avoided all of the pain and suffering by just agreeing to create the monster a companion this way the monster would no longer be lonely and have someone that he could be with that could lead him away from Victor Frankenstein. A few bad decisions really hurt Victor’s fate and they were choices he made that were not forced upon by anyone but himself. I also think that Victor could have made it up to the monster by just taking him back in teaching him things letting him know that he didn’t mean to abandon him. That is also another thing that could have prevented this whole situation from escalading to something bigger and worst. There are many other ways Victor could have avoided the trials he went through but he determined his own fate by not doing anything to make his situation and circumstance. His fate only had two ways to go the good way was staying with the monster and working things out and the

    The only thing that changed inside of the creature to become the monster; was his world view. The creature believed that if he tried hard enough he could find companionship to make his life better. The monster stopped believing that this was possible; and believed instead that he could never find happiness in the world. This shift is what caused him to start acting like an evil monster. When he let everyone else’s belief that he was what he looked like become internal, then he started acting like a monster.…

    Frankenstein did not have remorse in the creation of the monster. He only regretted that he failed in making his being perfect. Frankenstein, had he succeeded in the task of killing the monster, would most likely try again. The monster, on the other hand, realized the horrible things he had done and planned to kill himself to make up for it. He recognized the faults in his morals and decided that he was too bad of a person to be saved.…

    Victors desire for the unknown is also responsible for the creation of the monster in the first place. Society is to blame for neglecting him and not accepting him for his appearance. Society played a huge role of responsibility for the monster acts. The monster did not fit into their “norm.” Lastly the lack of companionship also led the monster to behave the way he does. The monster had no one on his side.…

    Comparing Victor to the monster, he was considered gentle and innocent character in the story while the monster was identified the heinous one. However, I am claiming that Frankenstein was a monster too because the literal definition of monster is when someone is extremely despicable to others. So, how can Victor be a monster? We can clearly point out the horrible things he had done to his creation, the monster. First, he completely neglected and abandoned the monster, and that could be one logical reason that the monster turned out to be evil.…

    Frankenstein’s monster is just another victim to society’s standards. In the end, the creature regrets all of his actions. I believe his actions were not because he was evil, but because he was lonely and had no other way to express himself. When he asked nicely for a female companion, his own creator did not want to listen to him; therefore, he has to threaten Frankenstein. Evil is not present when one is born, or in this case created, but instead it manifests out of a circumstance or people.…

    After Justine died, Dr. Frankenstein knew that he “committed deeds of mischief” (65). He also thinks that the creature “would commit some signal crime” (66). However, except for feeling despair, he does nothing to stop the creature. He seems not care about other people’s lives. Even when he meets the creature after the death of Justine, he just asks it to go way rather than trying to destroy it himself.…

    It was essentially conceived and attempted to see the individual who made him come, the person who required him and cherished him. Be that as it may when it saw the world did not see anyone who at any rate provided for him an arm to remained up. Victor Frankenstein wanted to give life to a creature, but when he managed to do it “the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled [his] heart…”.

    By keeping the creation of the monster a secret, Victor continually puts many of his family and friends at risk. By letting people know of his creation, Victor could have possibly killed the monster and ended both of their despairs forever. An example of selfish secrets is in Chapter 22 where Victor says, “I avoided explanation and maintained a continual silence concerning the wretch I had created. I had a persuasion that I should be supposed mad, and this in itself would forever have chained my tongue.” From the first glance of the monster Victor feels very disgusted and embarrassed of his creation and as a result he keeps the monster a secret. Victor blames the recurring murders on his “mad” ambition and overlooks the fact that he selfishly kept the secret from everyone.…

    He was ugly and society shunned him without getting to know him. The creation became angry after Victor travelled around the country to find him and murder him, but it is ironic that Victor is angry that his creation has committed murders, “My rage is unspeakable, when I reflect that the murderer, whom I have turned loose upon society, still exists.” (Shelley 148). If Victor was human, he wouldn’t want to kill his own creation, just like a parent should never murder their own child. Victor was upset that his creation became a murderer, but he never taught his creation to adapt to human society and cope with his looks. If Victors fulfillment would be to kill his own creation before he dies then he is far from humane, “I must pursue and destroy the being whom I gave existence; then my lot on earth will be fulfilled and I may die.” (Shelley 158).…
