Frankenstein's creature does not follow the stereotype of a monster that it has been traditionally thrown under. A monster is not born of innocence, and does not feel sympathise with the helpless. The array of emotions, actions, and requests that this supposed monster displays allude to his humanity flourishing within. He is an extreme of the human condition. In every person, there are horrific characteristics along side unbelievably vulnerable aspects that shape and highlight their essence, defining who they are. Someone who is a killer does not cease being human, and nor does a baby when it first born. The creature is as human as a murderer, and as innocent as an infant. As a young being, the creature was full imagination, letting his wonder …show more content…
Monsters do not typically adhere to the actions of God, rather they see themselves as their own god. The creature describes his view on religion as, “Like Adam, I was apparently united by no link to any other being in existence; but his state was far different from mine in every other respect (...) Many times I considered Satan as the fitter emblem of my condition, for often, like him, when I viewed the bliss of my protectors, the bitter gall of envy rose within me” (110). A very human characteristic, envy, leads back to the emotion of sympathy. He sympathises with the devil, as monstrous as he (the devil) may be, but also sympathises with his own condition. He applies what he has felt towards himself to Frankenstein, his creator who did not give him a chance to prove his humanity. Frankenstein was given a second chance even when he never gave his being a first chance. “Remember that I am thy creature” (81), “Everywhere I see bliss, from which I alone am irrevocably excluded. I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend. Make me happy, and I shall again be virtuous” (81-82). He honors Frankenstein as though he is his father, gives him a chance at redemption, and then ponders what his future actions will be. He wants more than to “acquire knowledge” (110); he aspires to be a member of society, functioning and growing with those he …show more content…
Firstly, the innocenceof Justine, as previously explained, was comparable with the innocence of the creature when he was first exploring the world. Secondly, when the creature encountered De Lacey, the blind man related to him, saying “I also am unfortunate; I and my family have been condemned, although innocent; judge, therefore, if I do not feel for your misfortunes” (141). Society judged and condemned De Lacey and his family, same as it did for Justine and the creature, outcasting them from their world in which they had originally thrived. Even Frankenstein thought of himself as “guiltless” (141), but having “indeed drawn down a horrible curse” (141), “as mortal as that of crime” (141). If crime is mortal, then the murders the creature commits make him spectacularly of this world, very surely human.
The sympathy towards the creature during his narration of the cottagers was carried on throughout the novel, regardless of its morality. Reason being, he acknowledges and understands what society thinks of him, a being not worthy of this world, but refuses to give up on living. The capacity in which he does so is irrelevant. He has a purpose in his life, making Frankenstein as miserable as he, and that is enough. As Frankenstein said, “revenge kept me alive” (179), and the creature responded, “I am satisfied, miserable wretch! You have determined to live, and I am satisfied” (180).
