Frankenstein Essay Research Paper FRANKENSTEIN In the

Frankenstein Essay, Research Paper


In the story ?Frankenstein,? written by the author Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein

decided that wanted to create

a being out of people that were already dead. He believed that he could bring people

back from the grave. Playing

with nature in such a way would make him play the role of God. With Victor Frankenstein

feeling that he had no

true friends, the only relief he had of expressing his feeling was through letters to Elizabeth.

Elizabeth was not

Victors? true sister but he loved her very dearly, making sure to always write her when

ever he had the chance. Yet,

when Victor left something strange came over him. Already being interested in subjects

such as natural philosophy

and chemistry, he fall upon the question of how to bring someone back to life. He became

very involved in this

project and worked on it for days on end. The project had to do with defying the laws of

nature. Victor believe

wholeheartedly that he could bring the dead back to life. He felt that the dead were not

ready to die and they were

just resting. Victor became so self absorbed into his project that he seem to forget all that

was important to him. He

even disengaged himself from all the people he loved in his life. People like his father,

Elizabeth, and other loved

ones. Victor began to write less and less. Yet, it was not until Elizabeth got a discouraged

letter from Victor, did his

love ones start to wary about him. Though, the letter was full of words, it gave no relief to

Elizabeth, because the

words meant nothing to her. However, they meant a lot to Victor, because he felt the

project in which he was

working on was so important to him, in his own delirious world. He felt that with bring

people back to life he would

not only better man kind, but also establish a name for himself. With this type of attitude,

he did not even take into

consideration that he might make the world a worse place. This part in the story shows the

irony. The irony being

that Victor Frankenstein feels he is doing something good for the world, but we later find

out just how bad this

creation could be. Though Elizabeth wanted to pull Victor away from his project, he was

unwilling to leave until it is

complete. After Victor found how to bring his creation to life, he also found out just how

evil his invention could be.

His creation was strong and evil. With the escape of the monster, Victor Frankenstein had

to come to realization of

what his creation might do and the consequences that Frankenstein, himself would have to

deal with. With the

murder of his brother weighing the guilt on his shoulders, Frankenstein know he had to do

something. So he went

looking for the monster. Upon their meeting each other, the monster confessed that when

he found out that William

as Victor?s brother he killed him. He then proceeded to tell him that he killed his brother

due to the fact that he was

trying to get back at his creator for bringing him to life and allowing him to be an out cast

in society. This killing

prove to Victor that the monster did not know right from wrong or how to cope with his

anger. This aggression

made Frankenstein’s creation violent. While talking with the monster, the monster

demanded from Frankenstein to

create a partner that he could be able to live with away for society. At first, agreeing to the

demand, but later

realized that if his first creation came out to be a killer so could the second one. With this

in mind Frankenstein

revoked his agreement and decided against creating another monster. Though, knowing

that this decision could be

dangerous to him and his loved ones. Yet, he had to think of what was truly best for man

kind. Bringing the dead to

life or saving the lives of the living. Another peace of irony in this story is, just like Victor

Frankenstein who had no

friends and was different from the rest of society so was the monster. Also, when

Frankenstein decided to play God

and bring the dead to life, his creation took on the same role when he decided to take

away some ones life. All in

all, both Frankenstein and his creation had some of the same behaviors and both were

going to die themselves and

be lonely meanwhile.
