Frankenstein hated the monster, and everything to do with the experiment, for example “dreams that had been my food and pleasant rest for so long a space were now become a hell to me”. This tells us in a very dramatic way how much Frankenstein believes that the experiment is a ‘hell’ to him, this single word being extremely meaningful as ‘hell would have been at the time, an extremely powerful word, more so than now. This also shows us how much he hates the monster with a passion. His life has been ruined by what has happened and there is nothing left.When the monster woke up, Frankenstein instantly regretted doing the experiment.
When the monster got abandoned by the old man and also his creator, Frankenstein the monster felt rejected. At this point it is a crucial turning point in the story, because the monster got pushed over the edge by people’s prejudices – the old man was the only person who had seen the real monster, and even he discarded him. The monster became extremely evil, and ended up desiring only one thing – to destroy Frankenstein, nothing else mattered to Frankenstein except this.I think that overall Shelley made the description of the monster waking very powerful and dramatic. It includes lots of emotive words that involve the readers, and also the storyline is extremely powerful and intriguing, making sure the reader is hooked from start to finish. I believe that the messages of Frankenstein are mainly warning us against the dangers of scientific progress and also about the differences between what we ourselves see as good and evil.
Also, the story tells us how we should not be prejudiced towards anyone because of how they look, this was relevant at the time, and is still relevant today.
