2340 words - 9 pages

The Monster's lack of childhood in Frankenstein led to complete chaosIt is believed that one's upbringing is the foundation for the type of person they become in life. If this base is erected due to the perceived ideal characteristics of a successful individual, which incorporates love, care, and nourishment, then it is common for that person to mimic these traits they were associated with. In some rare cases, regardless of these surroundings, it is possible for someone to skew out of the average and completely differ from their guardians. This was the case for Victor Frankenstein in Mary Shelley's novel, Frankenstein. He was an extremely self motivated and oriented individual despite his glorified upbringing. Opposed to being raised in the ideal family, the failure to comply with the responsibilities humans have as a creator, can initiate terrible outcomes, such as Victor's creation of the Monster and his immediate abandonment of it. Both Victor and the Monster lack the sense of human responsibility due to their egocentric personalities and constant thought of themselves, even though Victor is solely responsible for the monster's revengeful feelings, inevitably causing their lives to be undoubtedly miserable, not only for themselves, but for others who are unfortunate enough to interact with them as well.Growing up, Victor lived an idealistic childhood due to his very loving, devoted, and indulgent parents. His father Baron was a very thoughtful and moral man, highly respected by the public and Victor, and was married to Caroline, a very loyal, cheerful, and empathetic, yet tough, individual. Even with the loss of Beaufort, a friend of Victor's father, their family easily overcame the troubles by opening their household to a young and beautiful Italian girl named Elizabeth as present to Victor. Victor is shown as a rather fortunate child and has adopted his parents' extensive knowledge over the years. He initially gets interested in poetry, but over some time his attention focuses in the direction of the sciences. From this, he acquires a rather violent temper, intense passions towards his studies and a craving for knowledge. These interests immediately transform into a life controlling obsession which are the grounds of his problem.I feel exquisite pleasure in dwelling on the recollections of childhood, before misfortune had tainted my mind and changed its bright visions of extensive usefulness into gloomy and narrow reflections upon self. Besides, in drawing the picture of my early days, I also record those events which led, by insensible steps, to my after tale of misery, for when I would account to myself for the birth of that passion which afterwards ruled my destiny I find it arise. Like a mountain river, from ignoble and almost forgotten sources; but, swelling as it proceeded, it became the torrent which, in its course, has swept away all my hopes and joys (Shelley 24).Victor is acknowledging his envious childhood and then admits to his...
