Come close to the monster The moment it was created, the monster attempted to adapt himself into human social life. So he learnt to speak and read. At one time he managed to rescue a drowning girl and tried hard to befriend kids but was driven away by all who saw him. He desired to be loved and accepted by humankind, but unfortunately was not accepted because of his horrible appearance.This feeling of abandonment forced him to seek revenge against his creator. As a matter of fact, the monster
I think he wanted to speak, but sadly nobody wanted to listen to him
victim of prejudice.
Monologue from the monster
? You do not know how much pain and unhappiness I have felt. ? Do you think I enjoyed killing people？My heart was made for love，like a man's heart．After I killed Henry Clerval，I hated myself．But I could not stop myself from more murder． ? Frankenstein would not give me a wife， but he hoped to find happiness with a wife of his own．He was not fair to me．
The beautiful sentences
You gave me a body, a mind, and feelings. Then you left me alone in the world to be feared and hated by everyone, and I know that you hate me the most of all. I truly believed you were evil.
The beautiful sentences
I am alone and miserable; man will not associate with me; but one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects. This being you must create.
Moral lesson of this story
? Everybody is born kind. ? People should not treat others by their appearance.
