Frankenstein

Monster

Frankenstein’s monster symbolises Adam in a dystopian world, where life is created from death; a man, not a woman, gives birth to a ‘monster’ with childlike sensibilities.

Dr. Frankenstein is incapable of having any parental attachment to what he deems to be an abomination. He rejects the Thing, which leads to the monster rebelling against his perceived father and demand payment for his suffering caused by the lack of guidance and love from his creator. The monster tries to exact his payment by destroying all the good in his father’s world. But neither unnatural parent nor monster feel they owe the other anything, instead each think the other owes them everything for the pain the other has caused them.
