It is proven in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein that feelings and emotions are felt in any being; whether it be man, creature, or monster. Victor Frankenstein and his creation felt a lot of the same feelings. Only difference, one man, the other monster. Their relationship had many ups and downs. They grew to love and to hate.
When the story about Frankenstein creating a creature first began, Frankenstein was hoping for a new discovery. He was filled with "a kind of enthusiastic frenzy"(Shelley 149). Frankenstein's number one priority was to complete his creation. He loved his creation before it became to life. He was so caught up into his work he realized he had done nothing else, "For this I had deprived myself of rest and health"(Shelley 35). Frankenstein was in love with the fact that he was creating a whole new being.
Right after the monster came to life the differences between them began. Frankenstein immediately was disgusted with his creation. He states, "the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart"(Shelley 35). Victor felt like all his hard work was wasted away, though he succeeded in his initial plan. On the other hand the monster seemed happy to see his creator. "A grin wrinkled his cheeks. one hand was stretched out."(Shelley 35), showed the monster acknowledgement of his creator. He was grateful of this but instead was rejected by Frankenstein.
Further into the story it seemed the two were going to form a favorable relationship. The monster told Frankenstein about what he had been through and why he did what he did. "The anger that had died away"(Shelley 104) led to Frankenstein feeling remorse for him. As the monster continued with his story and expresses his desire for a mate Frankenstein was "moved", he "felt that there was some justice in his argument"(Shelley 105). Frankenstein agreed to make him a mate so that he can also be happy.
