Transcript of Frankenstein

FRANKENSTEIN THE CREATURE APPEARANCE BIRTH AND ABANDONMENT The life in the forest "I felt light, and hunger, and thirst, and darkness; innumerable sounds rang in my ears, and on all sides various scents salute me: the only object I could distinguish was the bright moon, and I fixed my eyes on that with pleasure" (106).

The life of my father is in the greatest danger, owing to the dreadful circumstance that I have related. My wife and my sister will never recover from their horror" (140). HATRED FOR HIS CREATOR "I was besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man (...) When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?" (123). Danny Boyle's Frankenstein- THE VENGEANCE GOES ON "Slave, I before reasoned with you, but you have proved yourself unworthy of my condescension. Remember that I have power; you believe yourself miserable, but I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you. You are my creator, but I am your master- obey!" (172). VICTIMS (part 2) Elizabeth Henry Clerval A FEMALE MONSTER

"One day, when I was oppressed by cold, I found a fire which had been left by some beggars, and was overcome with delight at the warmth I experienced from it. In my joy I thrust my hand into the live embers, but quickly drew it out again with a cry of pain. How strange, I thought, that the same cause should produce such opposite effects!"(107). De Lacey
Q.17 "My thoughts become more and more active, and I longed to discover the motives and feelings of this lovely creatures: I was inquisitive to know why Felix appeared so miserable and Agatha so sad. I thought (foolish wretch!) that it might be in my power to restore happiness to these deserving people" (117). VENGEANCE FIRST VICTIMS ""Hideous monster! Let me go.

- The relation with society attempt to destroy the natural goodness of this creature.

- The creature learn not to approximate to normal people if he doesn't want to be beaten what causes him a great loneliness and frustrate his desire of companion

- His miserable life guides him to take revenge of his cruel creator who has abandoned him.
- In contrast, he love his creator as a child loves his father just because he bring him to life

- Bipolar personality caused because he's formed with different bodies and therefore different personalities (?).

- The fact that the monster can speak in that polite, literate and correct way, appears like a mistake because the monster loose all his terrifying look and make him more human.
