Mary Shelleys Frankenstein has been hailed as one of the best horror stories ever The title Frankenstein is the last name of the creator of the infamous Frankensteins monster Dr Victor Frankenstein His is a story of the great pain suffered by Frankenstein and his monster and peoples misunderstanding of the poor creature All his efforts to find a companion are useless as society shuns him for his horrid figureAlthough the story is told by Dr Frankenstein through Robert Walton an arctic explorer the antagonist seems to be his monster Despite his gruesome appearance this being composed of various cadaver parts starts out as a compassionate creature longing for companionship and curious of how he came to be He desperately tries to befriend members of society but utterly fails at each attempt His appearance earns him no sympathy but loathing from his creator and townspeople alike For example after secretly living with a poor family for more than a year he decides to approach the father a blind old man The creature reasons that since the old man cannot see him he will not be repulsed by the monsters form thus providing companionship for the creature As the two talk the old man responds to the plight of the stranger However the monsters wish for friendship does not come true for the old mans children return home to find their blind father with a gigantic monster The old mans son attacks the monster but instead of killing the boy he runs away overcome by despair and anguish The creature decides to request Frankenstein make a female version of himself Frankenstein refuses at first saying that creating another might destroy mankind but the monster says to himYou are in the wrong and instead of threatening I am content to reason with you I am malicious because I am miserable Am I not shunned and hated by all mankind You my creator would tear me to pieces
