Mary Shelley's Frankenstein revolves around two main people: the excellent but miserable scientist and his greatly misunderstood creation, a creature that was conceived with out a chance of acceptance. Though, because of Frankenstein's neglection and the creature's following bad decisions, the creation and creator are constantly in conflict with each other. However, despite having this continuous discord, the two talk about very dazzling similarities. Through the entire book, the parallelism between Victor Frankenstein's personality and that of his creation become more and more visible even as we see their distributed craving for knowledge, yearning for revenge and their gratitude of the nature around them.
After the murder of William, Clerval and Elizabeth and the unjustified execution of Justine, Frankenstein's new found for living was based exclusively on revenge. He dedicated his life to undertaking his revenge and put in all his attempts on tracking down his creation, running after him across the continent. He suffered the sensation of the bitter cold temperatures and fatigue yet somehow, through it all, Frankenstein continued to be fervently driven. This "revenge held [him] alive" and [daring] not to die and leave [his] adversary in being" (Page 178), he prolonged his pursuit through all studies and tribulations. Again, much like his creator, the creature who now becoming much more like a monster, also lived a life focused on seeking vengeance. After he was chased out the cottage by Felix, it was then that the monster's heart and soul was consumed with hate. He spent hours of his days watching and understanding how to love this family plus they were now betraying him by not trying to give him a chance. He took this betrayal and switched it into purpose, stating that he'd pleasure, in the "[destruction] of the cottage and its own inhabitants, and [would glut himself] with their shrieks and misery" ( Web page121). Frankenstein's creature experienced this same betrayal when Frankenstein refused to create a mate for him, saying that as his inventor, he owed him that one delight. Frankenstein first decided but then changed his mind and required apart the work on the partner that he previously started out. The creature noticed that the only way to make his originator understand how it thought to be truly together was to make it impossible for him to feel the love of those closest to him, even encouraging that he'd be with him on his wedding night. The monster fulfilled his internal search and murdered Frankenstein's best friend, Henry Clerval and his newlywed wife, Elizabeth. We see that through both personas determination to seek revenge can be very potent plus they have both stopped at little or nothing to understand this revenge.
Even with the maliciousness and cold-set center it requires to be that determined in obtaining revenge, both heroes have this beautiful aspect that they get very in touch with when they remain nature and are often eased by the sheer natural beauty of it. After the murder of William and execution of Justine, Frankenstein still manages to start to see the tranquility found in looking upon the glaciers of Montanvert, how it filled him with a sense of "" (Page 87). Even while Victor Frankenstein is sense the regrets of having to set-up another creature as a mate for his first, while on the Rhine River he needed a glance at the beauty of nature encompassing him, "" (Webpage138). In the same way, the creature also discovers peace in aspect during his times of mental strife. After being chased away by Felix, Agatha, and De Lacey, he's truly disheartened but nonetheless found peacefulness and beauty in ". " (Page 121). Though the monster had put in his whole life in solitude, he found a true sense of comfort in wandering around by themselves and indulging himself in the naturalness of the environment he was in. He even once defined how "" (Web page 106). Through this, we observe how truly similar both Frankenstein and the animals love for dynamics is. Not only have they enjoy admiring characteristics but both used it to escape those times when loneliness appeared to be almost damaging. This proves how genuinely human and humane the "monster" was and one can notice that both man and monster have a place in and use for mother nature.
One cannot help but notice the extreme parallelism between both of these people who spend the whole booklet at opposition with each other. Were with them through their shared desire to obtain knowledge, decided lust for revenge, and love of characteristics which each is noticeable through both personas' activities. This proves not just that both characters are extremely equally but also that Victor Frankenstein's creation is more real human than he realizes.
