There are obvious similarities between Victor and his creation; Both have been solated, and both start out with good intentions. However, Victor's ego conquer his humanity in his search for god-like powers. The creature is nothing but gentle until society rejects him and makes him an outcast on account of his deformities. The creature is more humane than his own creator because his immoral deeds are committed in response to society's corruption; while Frankenstein's evil work begins from his own selfishness. Victor Frankenstein and his monster are alike. Both are abandoned by their creators at a young age; Frankenstein is left without his mother after her death, the creature is rejected by Frankenstein. Frankenstein and the monster are also similar in that they are isolated and outcasts of society. Frankenstein is most likely an outcast when he consumes himself in work and is isolated when the creature kills those he loves, and the creature is obviously isolated as an ugly, deformed outcast of society. Therefore Victor Frankenstein seems less human than the monster; he displays this by deserting the monster, declining to visit his family for two years and be declining to save Justine.
Victor Frankenstein starts out with good intentions; he is merely seeking to gain knowledge of natural beliefs. Soon, his greed for god-like power overcomes him and he becomes consumed with the idea of creating life, "Summer months passed while I was thus engaged, heart and soul, in one pursuit" (32). The creature also starts out with kindness, he tells his creator, "Believe me, Frankenstein: I was benevolent; my soul glowed with love and humanity: but am I not alone, miserably alone?" (66). However, after society refuses to accept him based on personal appearance, the creature becomes angry. The creature has an overwhelming capacity to love as can be seen in his admiration for the peasants, "[The creature's] thoughts now became more active, and [he] longed to discover the motives and feelings of these lovely creatures.
