the creature was forced to live in isolation from society
the creature was forced to live in isolation from society. Since nobody could with take the “breathless horror”(56) presented by the creature’s appearance, this made it impossible for the creature to have any hope in socializing with any human with eyes. The creature was not responsible for his abandonment. He was hated and rejected from the moment of his creation. The horrible image of the creature’s physical appearance physically isolated him from society. The only person who accepted the creature for what he was, was De Lacy, and he was blind. De Lacy listened to the creature’s heart-breaking story of being lonely with no friends. De Lacy comforted the upset monster by telling him that he was “really blameless”(128) and that it would be a “pleasure to be in any serviceable to a human creature.”(128) This was probably the happiest point in the creature’s life, since he did not feel isolated or lonely in the company of De Lacy. Unfortunately this relationship ended horribly when De Lacy’s family returned and Felix chased the creature away and struck him “violently with a stick.”(129) This made the creature realize that he would forever be rejected from society. “I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property. I was, besides, endowed with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome I cannot describe to you the agony that these reflections inflicted upon me.”(148) This realization of complete loneliness gave the creature a huge craving for attention. He felt that he could only get the attention of Victor by killing the ones closest to Victor.
