“ Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred.” (Chapter 15)
Here the monster discovers that his very own creator; Frankenstein, is disgusted by his existence, which increases the monster’s devastation towards the fact that his desire to be among society is an impossible aspiration. He feels self pity towards himself which evokes a sense of sympathy in the readers. It also gives a glimpse into the lack of compassion that Frankenstein has for his creation. Initially the monster believed that, though everyone he has encountered found him repulsive, that his own creator will nurture him. Similar to the way a murderer is only loved by their mother. It is when Victor reveres from him does the monster completely comprehend his forsaken destiny. Finally, as the monster realizes this, he is abashed and develops that the solution to his isolation is for Frankenstein to make him a creature just as ghastly. The monster describes himself as more loathed and detested than Satan due to his lack of companionship. Though it is argued that the monster posses more humanity than humans themselves since the monster’s one wish it to be accepted and loved. God made man in his own image, beautiful and alluring, whereas Frankenstein made the monster horrid and hideous. This depicts the idea that Frankenstein made the monster out of self glory and then shows how Frankenstein views himself: horrid and hideous. Humans apply their self worth into their work. For example, an individual who is content and untroubled produces bright and beautiful creations. An individual who is unsettled and disturbed fabricates horrible and dysfunctional creations. It is a part of the human condition to possess the dark desire to observe misery. When an individual is in dismay or desolation, many others find satisfaction in themselves when compared to the abhorred individual. A human’s worst fear is to be rejected from society and even if that is the case; the knowledge that their family loves them is comforting. It is when individuals discover their inherent loneliness do they take drastic measures to solve it; forcing other’s love upon them or seeking other individuals just as desolated. God or “the creator”is often blamed when an individual experiences trouble or exile, though if one is constitutionally good by nature then they are destined for acceptance. Yet, due to the surface level judgement of society,many remain loathed by humanity.
