Frankenstein Final Assessment

Responsibility Michael Lepovsky

What is responsibility?

Responsibility is the idea that you will be able to be accountable for all the actions you have.

Why is responsibility important?

Responsibility is important because nobody else should have to pay for your mess. This is so obvious in this book because if Victor would have been accepting of the monster I bet not a single person would've died.

Modern connections

A very major problem with society nowadays is the amount of bullying that happens. Sometimes the bullying can go so far that the victim feels the only way to get away from it is to commit suicide. In this case the bully is responsible for costing that person their life.
Another modern connection is the amount of teen pregnancies. If kids nowadays were more responsible there wouldn't such a large amount. Japan's teen pregnancy rate is eight times lower then America's. It isn't just Japan though, Canada is two times lower then ours as well. With these statistics you can see that the majority of our population is clearly not responsible at all.

Connection to the book

In the book you can see a lot of examples of resposnsibilty. One of the most important ones is how responsible Frankenstein is for his creation. He clearly wasn't responsible enough to bring this creation to life because it ended up killing all of these important people in his life. Maybe if he wouldn't have hated the monster as soon as he created it then the ending would have been different.
My other example of responsibility is how responsible the monster is for everything he did that was wrong. You can say how terrible he was because he was killing people and whatnot but if you were hated as soon as you came to life I bet you would be doing some pretty destructive things. Not just that he was hated but also the one time he asked for help from his creator not only did he say no but he did it by literally killing the one thing the monster wanted and that was somebody for him to love.


"I had declared it with an ardour that far exceeded moderation; but now that i have finished, the beauty of the dream has vanished. Breathless horror and disgust filled my heart."
"The apartment was empty, and my bedroom was free from its ugly guest"
"I also thought of my father and surviving brother,shold I be my base besetting and leave then unexposed and unprotected to the malice of the fiend I had created?"
"I not in deed but in effect the true murderer."
"I beheld those I loved spend Bain and sorrow upon the graves of William and Justine the first hapless victims to my unhallowed arts."
"Remember I am thy creature, I ought to be thy Adam but I am thy fallen angel."
"CURSED,CURSED CREATOR! Why did I live? Why in that instant, did I not extinguish the spark of existence you had so wantonly exposed?"
