Essay on how the author of Frankenstein illustrates the sublimity of nature Victors feelings at meeting the monster and how the author portrays the monsters attitude and feelings in Volume II Chapter II Mary Shelly displays the abnormality and strangeness of the monster in several ways In her description of Victors encounter with the monster it is said that the monster advances towards Victor at a superhuman speed The word superhuman evidently suggests that the monster is unnatural abnormal and later on twisted The monsters stature is said to exceed that of a man The author illustrates how different and strange the monster is through her descriptions of his looks and thoughts The regularity and repetition of descriptions regarding the monsters looks implies that something is very odd unearthly ugliness is just one of many descriptions about the monster We could quite easily assume from the authors descriptions that the monster was an alien and was from a different planet The author shows quite clearly that Victor is afraid of the monster we are told that Victor trembled with rage and horror as he waited for the monster to approach For Victor who created the monster to be afraid of something he made himself displays a strong sense of wrongness Victor feels the monster is almost too horrible for human eyes This says that the monster is ugly but also that the monster is something humans should not see and is something that humans should not look at or have anything to do with We think of nature as green fields trees and flowers - the author visibly describes the monster to be the exact opposite of anything connected with nature Victor brands the monster Devil - he does not refer to the monster as being a devil he refers to the monster being the Devil - Satan The Devil is the exact opposite of nature - fire dungeons and evil are associated
