In the monster is based on different body parts

In the book Frankenstein, Mary Shelly created a creature who
has no name throughout the whole book. However, he made his marks by murdering
Frankenstein’s wife and his younger brother, which affected his image by hiding
his true nature and personality. In fact, although the monster behaves
viciously and becomes a serial killer, he is not inherently evil.

The monster, from the moment of his birth, can be seen as a
product of Victor Frankenstein. First of all, the construction of the monster
is based on different body parts that are collected by Victor Frankenstein.

Then victor brings him to life by the amount of studying and experiments.

However, later on, he was rejected by Frankenstein because of his ugly and
scary appearance. Besides, the monster is confused and disappointed that his
creator abandoned him the moment he meets the world, which proves that the
monster has strong emotional responses as a normal person does. And those
negative emotional responses were mainly caused by the unfair treatment he
suffers from his creator and the world he lives in. The monster is a lost
innocent in the world where everyone judges him on his look. He is curious
about the world at first and wanders in the woods alone trying to survive and
learn skills, then he discovers food and begins to live like normal person by
seeking shelters from the village and making fire by himself. In the end, he
adapts the living habits that are the same as others.

 The monster is not
inherently evil not only because he is a product of Frankenstein who develops
human habits, but also because of what he experiences and suffers from the
society. After the monster gets rejected by Frankenstein, he gets rejected
again by people he respects. In the village, he brings dry woods to the family
near his shelter, and he learns English from them, and as Felix sees him
talking to de Lacey, he begins to judge him by his ugly face rather than his
kind heart. All these judgments based on his appearance compellingly isolates
the monster from the society. The monster understands that he is repulsive to
humans, and he hides in the forest, away from people because he realizes he looks
ugly and scary. The benevolent nature of the monster is completely ignored by
these people, such as the admiration towards de Lacey family and he even
develops sympathy for de Lacey family which pushes him to help them
anonymously. Besides, the monster also appreciates the music and understands
the emotional within it, which ends up encouraging him to communicate with the
father of the family because he seeks companionship and wants to live like a
normal person. After being attacked by Felix, the monster experiences sadness
instead of anger, and he burns down the cottage after de Laceys move out as his
first violent act in response to their rejection. Furthermore, the monster
tries to save a drowning but gets attacked by the girl’s father who is another
rejection in the society that destroys the monster’s respect to humans.

Along with what the monster suffers from the society, the
monster’s relationship with Frankenstein makes him not inherently evil. Above
all, there is the rejection and abandonment by his “father” Frankenstein in
this one-sided relationship, but the monster discovers identity of his creator,
and he tells Frankenstein about his true rage from his terrible experience with
humans, and he asks for a female companion to live the rest of his life without
hurting anyone. The monster’s last hope is destroyed when Frankenstein breaks
his promise, which leads to the monster’s killing spree. Finally, the monster
achieved his goal to make Frankenstein as miserable as he is by killing his
loved ones which makes Frankenstein feel guilty and responsible for their
deaths.

In conclusion, the monster’s true nature and desires are
comparable to human’s nature and desires which are love and acceptance by
society, a companionship, an end to his isolation and a strong desire for a
death when he has nothing to lose because he understands he can never find
peace and get accepted in this society.
