Transcript of Frankenstein

The Role of Family
in Frankenstein By: John, Jared, Shawn, and Aaron Alphonse Henry
"You must
create a female for me
with whom I can live in the interchange of those sympathies necessary for my being. This you alone can do, and I demand it
of you as a right which
you must not refuse
to concede." The monster
that Victor has created
feels very out of place and
is looking for a family or a
place where he can belong. He acts evilly and maliciously
because of his lack of
friends and family. Henry is Victor's
good friend who helped Victor when he was sick to get better. He is like family to Victor during his time of sickness. "Excessive
sorrow prevents
improvement or enjoyment,
or even the discharge of
daily usefulness, without
such no man is
fit for society." Alphonse
reminds Victor throughout the novel of the importance
of family and loneliness Victor "No human
being could have passed
a happier childhood than myself.
My parents were possessed by the very spirit of kindness and indulgence. When I mingled with other families I distinctly discerned how peculiarly fortunate my lot was, and
gratitude assisted the
development of
filial love" Alphonse
facilitated Victor's decision to pursue
a career in science, which ultimately lead
to the creation of
his monster. The Monster "Other lessons were
impressed upon me even more
deeply. I heard of the difference of
sexes, and the birth and growth of children,
how the father doted on the smiles of the
infant, and the lively sallies of the older child,
how all the life and cares of the mother were
wrapped up in the precious charge, how the
mind of youth expanded and gained
knowledge, of brother, sister, and
all the various relationships which bind
one human being to another
in mutual bonds." "They were fond of
the sweet orphan. Her presence
had seemed a blessing to them, but
it would be unfair to her to keep her in
poverty and want when Providence
afforded her such powerful protection.
They consulted their village priest, and the
result was that Elizabeth Lavenza became
the inmate of my parents’ house--
my more than sister--the beautiful
and adored companion of all
my occupations and
my pleasures" Elizabeth - "I desire the
company of a man who
could sympathize with me, whose
eyes would reply to mine. You may
deem me romantic, my dear sister, but
I bitterly feel the want of a friend. I have
no one near me, gentle yet courageous, possessed of a cultivated as well as
of a capacious mind, whose tastes
are like my own, to approve
or amend my plans." "I am
malicious because
I am miserable. Am I
not shunned and hated
by all mankind?"
The monster knows that
he needs love just like everyone else to be
happy. Walton
