Frankenstein Analysis

Frankenstein Short Summary

The novel's main character is Viktor Frankenstein; he aims to create human beings and thus achieve the goal of immortality. With this, he is a concreate example to all the people who want immortality deep down. As a result of this and numerous experiments with this endowment, Frankenstein has achieved success and has created a huge man, 2.50 meters tall, from all the pieces he has collected from the corpses. What he has created is an anonymous freak frankenstein created by using alchemy and electricity at the end of his experiments.

When he sees what he had created, Frankenstein moves away from him, but during that time the beast recognizes his creator. But the creature has no idea why people run away from it. Starting from this situation, he starts to look for him because he wants his creator to answer this question but he is always excluded by people who do not know his character and who do not know him.

Then he finds his creator's family, observes them, and becomes envious of the love he observes. As a result, he wants a “wife” for himself; however, he cannot convince the creator of this issue. As a result of his unhappiness, his sense of revenge was strengthened. The creature kills Frankenstein's youngest brother, but the other brother, who is mistakenly convicted, is executed. Frankenstein marries Elizabeth, but her daughter-in-law cannot escape the vengeance of the creature, and so she is killed on the first night. Frankenstein then decides to destroy the beast and reaches the North Pole after him.

He was rescued by Captain Walton, an explorer, but he dies after telling his story. Walton then sees the creature crying for the death of his creator. The creature runs away, saying that he is guilty of conscience and that he will end his life. The main feature of the work, which has never lost its fame since it was published, is that it contains a reference to the myth of creation and its content. It shows the desire of man to be God and its destructive features.
