Frankenstein Theme People judge based on appearance

"I, with childish seriousness, interpreted her words literally and looked upon Elizabeth as mine-mine to protect, love, cherish" (41).

Victor expresses how he feels about Elizabeth. He feels that he should protect her. This is all because of her appearance.

"The Summer months passed while I was thus engaged, heart and soul, in one pursuit" (66).

The beauty of nature distracts Victor from his other worries

"His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was lustrous black" (69).

He didn't know the creation was going to look so ugly, so he then he runs away from the monster.

"Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created. I rushed out of the room" (70).

Victor runs from the monster because he sees him and he feels that the monster is dangerous just because he looks ugly.

"The deformity of it's aspect, more hideous than belongs to humanity, instantly informed me that it was the wretch" (93).

The monster's ugliness still scares Victor. He knows that the monster killed William because he is ugly and must be evil.
