Frankenstein Mary Shelly

People's Judgement Based On Appearance

"His limbs were in proportion and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful!" (69 Shelly).

"but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart." (70 Shelly)

When Victor first brought the monster to life he called him beautiful, but when he looked at him again he was disgusted.

"Instantly informed me that the wretch filthy daemon to whom I given life... I became convinced that he killed my brother." (93 Shelly)

William had threatened to get his father on the monster that made the monster hurt him, he acted out of fear and anger.

"I rushed from my hiding place with extreme labour from the force of the current and saved her." (177 Shelly)

"I was suddenly interrupted... tearing the girl from my arms, he saw me draw near, aimed a gun and fired." (177 Shelly)

The monster had even saved a girl's life and that still lead him to get shot just because of what he looked like.

"The whole village roused ; some fled, some attacked me, until grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons." (132 Shelly)

People automatically hunted the monster down when he did nothing but walk into a town.

"Who can describe their horror and consternation on beholding me? Agatha fainted, and Safie, unable to attend to her friend rushed out the cottage." (170 Shelly)

He was rejected by the old blind man's family. All the monster wanted was to be loved and understood, but because of his appearance it only lead him to harm others and his death.
