Without easy friendship or happiness to be found, the monster succumbs to the belief that none could possibly exist. Seemingly faced with a life without happiness, the only course of action he let himself see was to make his creator feel how his life was. He tells Robert that, “He sought his own enjoyment in feelings and passions from the indulgence of which I was for ever barred, then impotent envy and bitter indignation filled me with an insatiable thirst for vengeance.” The monster was so blinded by anger and jealousy that his creator could experience love while he was denied it that he decided he must destroy the source of said…

    For example, when William Frankenstein encounters the creature, he immediately screams and cries, “Monster! Ugly wretch!...You are an ogre (Ch.16;126)!” These insults deeply hurt the creature and spark his desire to destroy all humanity, starting with murdering William. This incident reveals how when people notice the creature’s unique appearance, they immediately judge him and see him to be monstrous, just because he appears different from others. William’s rejection of the creature reveals how Mary Shelley displays the characters as unsympathetic and judgemental people who are not worthy of sympathy. Thus, children’s petrified reactions to the creature’s semblance are another way in which Mary Shelley portrays humanity in a negative…

    However, the closer Victor became to completing the creature, he is more enclosed, darker, misguided. He unconsciously proves that that it’s no longer a quest to Frankenstein anymore; it’s an obsession.
