Quest for knowledge: After encountering a ship on an expedition to find a passage way, an ambitious Victor Frankenstein recounts his life story to Captain Walton
Quest for knowledge: Victor possesses the ability to create life. Whilst in his journey to achieve knowledge, Victor did not consider the outcomes of the situation
Fear and Abandonment: Abandoned, the creature is rejected by Victor because of his appearance. The creature becomes feared and rejected by society, thus causing him to hide to avoid further rejection. Through a peephole, the creature learns about the world, but is never truly a part of it. :(
Fear and Rejection: Vengeful, the creature makes Victor feel his pain by murdering Victor's loved ones. This left Victor all alone in the world, much like the creature.
Nature vs. Nurture: The creature's nature is a direct result of his isolation, rejection, fear, and Victor's abandonment. The creature is left to learn basic human tasks on his own, causing the beginning of his malevolence.
The creature's life could have been different. Had Victor nurtured and cared for him like a father instead of abandoning him, the creature would have been raised in a beneficial way.
