Victor was full of optimism and hope for the future at first, believing that his scientific achievement would improve humanity. He soon recognizes, though, that he has caused not only personal suffering but also worldwide devastation. It gives him a sense of devastation and intense guilt until the end of his days.
The story of Frankenstein is mainly told in the first person, with Robert telling it and Frankenstein himself telling the tale within the tale. Frankenstein’s narrative, on the other hand, is a fantastic flashback to his personal history and all that he has survived.
The term “epistolary” comes from the Latin word epistle, which refers to a personal document sent to another individual. The tale of Frankenstein is made up of letters between Captain Robert Walton and his sister Margaret. Epistolary novels have been extremely popular and widely read since the Enlightenment (late 18th century).
Long before the advent of modern natural science, the term “natural philosophy” referred, among other things, to anatomy. It was, in a manner, a halfway point between humanistic and natural science in today’s terms. It attempted to explain perplexing issues about humanity’s body and existence, seeking answers to some of life’s most fundamental questions: birth and death.
Victor explains to him all about the beast and how it came to be. However, he never informs him how he generated him in the first place. Victor is adamant that his secret shall perish with him so that others may not suffer as he has. It is an unholy and terrible thing, according to his current point of view, and he condemns his own scientific curiosity for leading to his discovery.
Victor is terrified and repulsed by the creature, who is a hideous and unnatural mélange of man and an inversion of a human – he’s taller and far more powerful than “ordinary” humans, but his features are deformed and disgusting. Victor understands that this was not what he wanted at all. Instead of being proud because of his success, he literally sickens with terror before gradually recovering for months.
Victor is now roaming the woods where his brother William was slain a few days ago. A bolt of lightning illuminates a huge, deformed figure, shocking Victor to realize it’s his creation and that it must have been responsible for his brother’s death.
Victor and Elizabeth are now in Justine’s jail cell to visit her. The following day, she will be executed since she acknowledged killing William, which she did not do. Victor is aware of the facts and who the actual culprit is, but he refuses to disclose them for fear of being labeled insane.
Even though there is no evidence to suggest that Justine is guilty, David and Elizabeth sympathize with her. Even Elizabeth thinks she is entirely blameless, despite the fact that there is no proof. Elizabeth said she would rather suffer the same fate as Justine than live in a world where justice was absent.
Victor is enthralled by the triumph of science over death at first. Frankenstein imagines that the Creature will be flawless when he assembles his enormous body piece by piece in Frankenstein’s Workshop. However, animation distorts lovely features. The Creature has horrible ideas and emotions that push him to murder Victor’s brother.
A brilliant young scientist decides to perform questionable research in order to bring back a corpse. The Scientist collects vital components from the dead and gives life to the Creature. The scientist is successful, but when he looks into the soulless watery eyes full of agony and hate, he is horrified.
Victor has fled, leaving the monster alone. Frankenstein locks himself in his apartment and becomes ill with a fever. His friend Henry Clerval takes care of him. The Creature must hide in the woods because he is full of optimism to become one of humanity. However, the family who lives in the forest cabin that he secretly supported during the winter rejects him due to his great sorrow and loneliness. The Creature kills Victor’s brother William while distracted by pain and isolation.
Victor learns everything when he arrives at the scene of the crime. He takes full responsibility for this murder and sinks into despair. Frankenstein finds the monster and hears his tale of isolation. The Creature threatens to exterminate all those who are dear to Victor if he does not create a female beast.
Victor and his follower pursue Frankenstein to Scotland, where they begin a new project. However, Victor quickly abandons the notion of creating a female monster because of the consequences. He discards the equipment and falls asleep in the boat. The wind whisks him to Ireland’s shores. To get back at Victor’s friend Clerval and put him behind bars, the monster kills him. Frankenstein is incarcerated, transforming from an optimistic scientist into a dejected man.
