Companionship and Friendship By Austin Malec


Companionship is an important foundation needed for a young boy or girl. Victor was very lucky when growing up. He had a very loving mother and father. He meet his wife to be when we was growing up too. After Victor created the monster he never gave him something he should have, A childhood.


1. "No human being could have passed a happier childhood than myself. My parents were possessed by the very spirit of kindness and indulgence" (Shelley 23) Victor

2. "A new species would bless me as its creator and source: many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as i should deserve theirs." (Shelley 38-39) Victor

3. "It was dark when i awoke: I felt cold also, and half frightened, as it were,instinctively, finding myself so desolate." (Shelley 84) The Creature

4. "All men hate the wretched; how, then, must I be hated, whom am miserable beyond all living things! Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us." (Shelley 81) The Creature

5. "When I looked around, I saw and heard of none like me.. Was I then a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled, and whom all men disowned?" (Shelley 101) The Creature

6. "And what was I? of my creation and creator I was absolutely ignorant, but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property." (Shelley 100) The Creature

How it all connects

1. One important foundation in life is companionship. Victor was very lucky in this way because he had a very loving mother and father,

2. Victor is talking about how he is a new god. A creator of life. He also said that no father could be as proud as him because he created it all by his self.

3. He awoke to find no one. No one to help. No one to teach him. No one to at all. He has scared from day one and it only got worse from there.

4. No one liked the creature. They were all too scared and afraid. He looked for help and guideness and no one could give it to him.

5. While being all by himself. He learned that no one was like him. No one acted or talked like him. He was different and the Creature did like it. He just wanted to fit in and have a friend. Everywhere he turned he was denied.

6. The creature knew what he had to do. He had to show his "God" how great he really was. To have no friends or loved one. The Creature had to do what Victor did to him. Make him a monster.
