This shows him taking responsibility for the monsters actions that he created.

Quotes from the book

1. "it was me, I killed those people". (ch.21) This shows responsibility because victor is taking responsibility for the actions the monster did since he created it.

2. ''shuddered to think that future ages might curse me as their pest, whose selfishness had not hesitated to buy its own peace at the price, perhaps, of the existence of the whole human race.'' This shows his responsibility by him confessing to the monster and him trying to tell the people but they don't believe him.

3. ''I apologize for leaving you at my laboratory''. (ch.23) this shows responsibility because he is apologizing for the actions he did that caused the creature pain.
