In its preface, Frankenstein claims to be a novel that gives a flattering depiction of "domestic affection." That seems a strange claim in a novel full of murder, tragedy, and despair. But, in relevance towards the book, the despair from all the tragedy and murder fall all under the lack of connection towards society and family. In different words, the evil in Frankenstein is not Victor nor the monster. But is rather isolation.. Summing it all up, it becomes clear that Frankenstein sees isolation from family and society as the worst imaginable fate, and the cause of hatred, violence, loneliness, and revenge.
