Friendship in Frankenstein in a Modern world.
"In M. Waldman I found a true friend. His gentleness was never tinged by dogmatism, and good nature that banished every idea of pedantry." (Shelley 35)
"Yet my heart overflowed with kindness and the love of virtue." (Shelley 73)
"Must I then lose this admirable thing? I have longed for a friend; I have sought for one who would sympathize with and love me." (Shelley Ch 24)
"My duties to the beings of my own species had greater claims to my attention because they included a greater proportion of happiness and misery. Urged by this view, I refused, and I did right and refusing, to create a companion for the first creature." (Shelley Ch 24)
"When I looked around I saw and heard none like me. Was I, the, a monster, a blot upon the earth from which all men fled and whom all men disowned." (Shelley 105)
"I am alone and miserable: man will not associate with me; but no one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects. This being you must create." (Shelley 129)
