How many times have people heard the saying ¨don 't judge a book by its cover¨? This common phrase teaches a meaningful lesson. Everyone, one point in their life, has judged something based on its appearance, whether they judged something from food to people. In Mary Shelley 's novel ¨Frankenstein¨ she shows how judging and neglecting someone by their appearance affects their mind in a negative way. The theme of Frankenstein teaches to not judge or alienate someone before getting to know them because it could result in a disaster.

The monster says to Victor, ¨I was wretched, helpless, and alone.¨ (Mary Shelley Chapter 15). Because of being left alone, the monster wandered around by himself to figure out how life works. He found a village of cottagers and watched them, while hiding, to understand humans. During his time observing the cottagers, he finds interest in a specific family. He tries to understand their emotions and why they have these emotions.

If Victor would not have left him alone, the monster could have experienced life in a different way. ¨...from that moment I declared everlasting war against the species, and more than all, against him who had formed me and sent me forth to this insupportable misery.¨ (Mary Shelley Chapter 16). The monster states, ¨...the feelings of revenge and hatred filled my bosom, and I did not strive to control them...When I thought of my friends, of the mild voice of De Lacey, the gentle eyes of Agatha, and the exquisite beauty of the Arabian, these thoughts vanished and a gush of tears somewhat soothed me. But again when I reflected that they had spurned and deserted me, anger returned, a rage of anger.¨ (Mary Shelley Chapter
