What is friendship?
Friendship expressed in Frankenstein
This quote from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein expresses how Robert Walton feels in his letter back to his sister Margaret. He is expressing how he has no friends and no one to share his achievements with when they come.
This quote expresses how they are just creatures living in a world where everyone is shown as their own person and everyone has their own traits.
This quote shows how the creature doesn't have anyone and just wants people to talk to and interact with. But instead he gets looked at as a freak and everyone runs from just the sight of him.
This quote also shows the extreme hardship that the creature is going through by not have any friendship with anyone. It also shows how badly he just wants someone to communicate with someone and how sad he gets when know one wants him.
In this quote although everything may seem fine around him really he is being killed on the inside by the lack of friendship. He is saying "the cup of life was poisoned forever" because he is so hurt that there is no fixing the pain he feels.
This quote shows how the creature is now turning from being sad that he has not friends and no one to talk to and now he is becoming mad and is going to cause as much pain to Victor as possible.
