In the 19th century there were many people trying to discover new things about science since the scientific revolution was not much earlier than that. All of these new and bright theories and ideas people wanted to try and create their own. Some even devoted their life to it such as Frankenstein in Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus. He was convinced that he needed to learn the way of life and how it works. Frankenstein was so devoted to his sciences and the discovery of life and death itself that he wanted it to be perfect. He was consumed in his studies for so long with test after test, the more and more he did it the more obsessed he was about discovering it.
He states, “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in it highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.” He was so invested with his work that because he had spent so much time on his studies he expected it to come out beautifully. Even as a young boy Frankenstein always thought of beauty as “perfection.” It was just how he grew up. For instance when his parents adopted Elizabeth it was mainly because she was charming and attractive. As said in the text, “They consulted their village priest, and the result was that Elizabeth Lavenza became the inmate of my parents’ house–my more than sister–the beautiful and adored companion of all my occupations and my pleasures.” So all of Frankenstein’s life he’s seen beauty as perfection so when he saw the ugly monster he was horrified.
So because of this he ran from his disgusting creation in horror. Which made the monster feel like nothing because not even his own creator wanted to look at him but instead he fled. He did not even want to return to his own house because he was so frightful that the monster might still be there. “I stepped fearfully in: The apartment was empty, and my bedroom was also freed from its hideous guest.” Frankenstein didn’t give the monster a chance to do anything he just fled.
I believe that the monster not only will be upset at Frankenstein but I also think he is going to get revenge on any being who could be considered “beautiful” in this case maybe even Elizabeth. I would imagine the monster being upset at anyone Frankenstein cared for because the lack of attention and love that he didn’t give the monster. That he would go on a sort of ‘spree’ of killing or hurting people that he would think to be beautiful because he might have some jealousy towards them. In the end I believe that he monster just wants Frankenstein to feel the hurt that he did when his creator left him.
