In the novel, Frankenstein’s creature is not considered as a human being at all. However, I hope that you see its “human” characteristics by the way it acts and through the feelings that it expresses throughout the story. One of these characteristics is its desire for revenge because of the way it has been treated by humans.
This is my question: How do you perceive the fact that the monster kills the people that Victor likes to achieve revenge? Is it Victor’s fault because he did not show any love to his creation? Is the monster really a monster?
I believe that this part of the novel is the one that demonstrates the most the humanity of the creature because when a young human is deeply mistreated, he/she tends to react negatively just like we can see with the criminals’ case. It is quite obvious that the creature “is born” good because, for example, it gathers crops for a family living in a cottage. Unfortunately, they respond badly to its appearance and reject it. Because of all the times it gets rejected, it turns to evil. However,every human has a bad and a good side…
This is just a quick opinion, but I let you continue the debate!
