Victor Frankenstein is a flawed character by alienation. Instead of embracing his family, and allowing them to embrace him in his troubles, he alienates everyone - his father, his friend, Elizabeth, and his creation. He continues to try to run away, and by doing so, he forges the path to his failure. Had he accepted parental responsibility for his creation, the creation would not have sought vengeance. William, Justin, Elizabeth -- all of these characters might have been spared their fate. However, Victor abandons his family at every turn, and suffers for it. Shelley idealizes family in the same way she does nature.
The deprived life could be interpreted as the ignorant life. The more knowledge that a person gains, the more complexity he/she also gains. The more wealth, the more responsibility; Victor is blessed with intelligence and education and wealth - and look what happens to him. After losing his mother he becomes obsessed with the idea of life. While in college a professor, sparks the idea of recreating life. Frankenstein becomes very consumed in the idea of bringing back life. “As he went on I felt as if my soul were grappling with a palpable enemy; one by one the various keys were touched which formed the mechanism of my being; chord after chord was sounded, and soon my mind was filled with one thought, one conception, one purpose.” He felt it was his purpose to go farther than any other scientist had ever gone before him. "A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. I might in process of time (although I now found it impossible) renew life where death had apparently devoted the body to corruption."
Victor felt success in cheating death would make him god like to his creations. After stitching and piecing together something he felt was great he was ready to test his theory…...

Some have informed you that in the United States are a Capitalist or market driven economy. To that end they are somewhat correct. In The United States we are a system that partially functions on a free enterprise system where a person or companies are free to run or start a business. When they do so need to be able to raise capital to run that business or enterprise. Usually the owner or set of owners have to fund the start up. This may be accomplished several different ways. They can invest their own money or they can sell parts of the interest to private investors or sometimes they can make the parts available to the public. The other part of the United States is also a mixed economy where the government can help provide funding thru small business administration, which is a government entity that will loan money to a person or small business to assist them to start or run a business. The government is broken into several different types they are as follows.

...Date To: Lead Economist Laura From: Subject: GE273 Unit 1 Report for Voter Victor The United States is known for having an economy market which people produces and consumers are the people that determine the goods and services that we as a country produce as well as the prices for the products that are made. Are economy is based on markets in which goods and services are bought and sold. This includes but is not limited to food, clothing, housing as well as every thing that is needed to live on. The buyers and sellers are the people that establish the market prices and the output of goods and services. Producers are the ones in the United States who decide the goods and services to make and sell in our country. However the consumer decides what they are willing to purchase. This has a major play in the pricing of goods. Even though a producer makes the goods and provides the services that are needed. The consumer ultimately has some control over the pricing if it is something that is not a necessity, like gasoline and oil. However things like oil, electricity, gasoline and natural resources the producers have a lot more control over the pricing. Reason beings are they are things that we need to survive and ultimately have little control over the cost. The United States government has two parts to it. There is a State level as well as a Federal level. Each level has different functions that they do for our country. Even though the State might say this is ok. The......

Comparing the Results of Victor and Hamlet’s Choices

...people who take too long to act. After Victor creates a monster a spurns it for his appearance, it kills several people close to him, including his brother, best friend and wife. Hamlet meanwhile, discovers via his father’s ghost that his father was murdered by his uncle, now king Claudius. Both promise that they will get revenge. Despite this, Hamlet constantly delays his revenge, while Victor often chooses to act on his feelings. Eventually, Hamlet acts on his revenge when he realizes he is dying nonetheless, contrasting with Victor, who dedicates his life to fulfilling his revenge after his wife’s death. Because of his late action, Hamlet is killed by his uncle, who takes action before he does, unlike Victor who eventually wears out and dies because of his own long quest for revenge. Hamlet and Victor’s fates are first determined by their decisions as to whether or not to act on their feelings of revenge. After agreeing to create a mate for his monster, Victor takes his first action of revenge on the monster when he decides to destroy the new creation, seeing its dangerous potential after the first monster’s murders. While in his laboratory putting the finishing touches on his second monster, Victor recalls that the first creation’s “unparalleled barbarity [has] desolated [Victor’s] heart and filled it forever with the bitterest remorse” and that the new monster may “delight, for its own sake, in murder and wretchedness” (Shelley 172). Victor feels that because of his......

The Moral Immoralities of Victor Frankenstein

...The Moral Immoralities of Victor Frankenstein In the novel Frankenstein, the author Mary Shelley portrays the limitations of man in his pursuit of scientific creativity. She illustrates Victor Frankenstein’s attempts and success at creating a human being in his laboratory as an immoral attempt to play the role of God. Shelley repeatedly shows the monster’s harmful effects on society and often places blame on Victor for the Monster’s detrimental actions. In order to emphasize the immorality and mistakes in Victor’s attempts to play God, Shelley constructs a recognizable parallel to the story of Genesis when God creates man and woman. In order to show her disapproval of such an endeavor, Shelley intentionally causes Victor to fail. This deviation from the parallel in Genesis demonstrates that man cannot exceed his natural limitations, or mimic the role of God. The story begins with Victor’s decision to create the Monster. Victor says that he “[s]ucceeded in discovering the cause of generation and life; nay, more, [he] became capable of bestowing animation upon lifeless matter” (Shelley 43). Immediately, a parallel is drawn to the creation of man in Genesis. This parallel continues when Victor discloses to the reader that he, “[c]ollected bones from charnel-houses and distrusted, with profane fingers, the tremendous secrets of the human frame” (Shelley 45). Shelley portrays the creation of Victor’s monster in a subtle but similar way that God created man. Her intention is......

Frankenstien Outline

...Plot: Walton, an Arctic explorer, picks up Victor Frankenstein who is marooned on a floe. Frankenstein was a student of natural science: he stumbled on a means of sparking life into inanimate matter. His experiments grew wild; he spent leisure hours combing abattoirs, charnel houses and graveyards. From odds and ends he constructed an eight foot Creature who lacked sex appeal. The Creature learnt about humanity from three books: Goethe's The Sorrows of Werther (passion), Plutarch's Lives (morality) and Milton's Paradise Lost (religion). Unfortunately, despite this injection of culture, people still tended to run away: an Adam without an Eve, the Creature asked Frankenstein for a mate. Frankenstein gets cracking but, in a fit of conscience, aborted the experiment. The Creature went mad and murdered most of Frankenstein's family and friends. Frankenstein is in pursuit of the Creature when Walton discovers him. Frankenstein dies in a final struggle with the creature across the frozen waters. The Creature, who only wanted "happiness and affection'', wanders off hoping to perish of misery and cold. Walton is left to make sense of a story that lies outside the boundaries of interpretation. Theme: In the early version, Shelley is conducting a dialectical debate between strict materialists and their religious opponents. The 1831 revision seems a conservative reappraisal: the book is now a dire warning of the consequences that fall on Frankenstein for meddling in God's......

...In Frankenstein Mary Shelley gives a small glimpse into the mind of Victor Frankenstein. To encourage movement the gothic genre is intensely used throughout the novel. To set the mood, a gothic setting is used to give specific details of weather, sounds, and the environment. Mary Shelley also uses irrational fear to keep the tone of a gothic novel. Without the gothic tone, Frankenstein would not be as impactful of a novel. First, one use of how gothic genre sets the mood is the setting. Use of certain time periods, weather, sounds, and environments keep the gothic tone consistent throughout the novel. “As soon as I was convinced that no assistance could save any part of the habitation, I quitted the scene and sought refuge in the woods” (124) meeting with the family the monster had been observing, it burned their house down. This is important because the monster felt that its place was in the ‘dark and scary forest’, it finally thought of itself as a monster that everyone else saw it as. Another example is when Frankenstein finds out that his brother has been murdered, the use of a gothic ‘scary’ setting is apparent. "I quitted my seat and walked on, although the darkness and storm increased every minute and the thunder burst with a terrific burst with a terrific crash over my head" (59). During this journey Frankenstein is very angry at his creation who he knows is to blame. Without the thunderstorm in the background, Frankenstein’s inner thoughts would not have been as......

...Abstract Searching for purpose and meaning in life is a trend among the human race in today’s world. This has been brought by human beings changing their way of thinking and focusing their thinking to what they think matters most in their lives. This mode of thinking is known as logotherapy. It was first coined Dr. Victor Emil Frankl. Frankl is mostly known for his book, Mans search for Meaning where he uses his life as an example to show that even after losing everything dear to them, human beings can still find meaning in his life. Frankl went through four concentration camps where he lost his wife, father and mother. Even after all this suffering Frankl still managed to find meaning in his life. Frankl’s suffering can be said to be the main motivation towards the development of Logotherapy. Key terms are Logotheraphy, Viktor Frankl, psychoanalysis. Development of Logotherapy. Viktor Frankl became interested in medicine while still an adolescent. He became interested in psychology while in High School (Life and Work, n.d). Frankl attended the same school as Sigmund Freud. Frankl became interested in Freud’s thinking and philosophies. Frankl started correspondence with Freud but soon differed with Freud’s thinking that sexual impulses explain a majority of human behavior Frankl claimed that Freud’s thinking to be too dogmatic to explain human being behavior. After leaving Freud, Frankl became interested in Alfred Alder’s philosophy on individual psychology. Individual......

...Date: How could Victor Frankenstein have helped the creature he created so it could acclimate and be accepted into society? What would you do? Victor Frankenstein is a man who comes from an affluent family and is obsessed in undertaking scientific advancements. Finally, he is able to create a living creature that does not conform to the human nature. The creature hence is excluded from the society due to its nature and tries to learn the language used in communication so that it can fit in the society. However, the creature is met with violent rejection. In order for victor to diffuse this rejection, he should not refer to the creature as a lifeless thing. This is because the phrase is extremely inhuman as it could refer to anything from a chair to any form of garbage in the house. This does not help in anyways the acceptance of the creature in the society. Therefore, Victor should give the creature a human name so that the society might view the creature differently. Victor begins the exclusion of the creature by referring to the creature as ambiguous, therefore Victor should give the creature a purpose in life and not just a successful experiment. Consequently, people can view the creature differently. Another important aspect to note is when the creature is lying at Victor’s feet. This means that Victor believes that the creature is physically below him. Victor feels superior to the creature both figuratively and literally. Victor should not......
