The Monster

The monster is the creation of Victor Frankenstein, assembled from old body parts and strange chemicals, animated by a mysterious spark. It takes life to eight feet high and mighty, but with the head of a newborn. Abandoned by his creator and confused, he tries to integrate into society, only escaped the universal.

Robert Walton

Letters Walton to his sister forms a frame around the main narrative, tragic story of Victor Frankenstein. Walton captains’ North Pole-bound ship trapped between the ice sheets. While waiting for the ice to melt, he and his crew take Victor, weak and emaciated from his long chase after the monster. Victor gets a little ‘, Walton tells the story of his life, and then dies. Walton regrets the death of a man with whom he felt strong and meaningful friendships are starting to form.

Walton serves as conduit through which the reader hears the story of Victor and his monster. Also plays a role that parallels Victor in many ways. Like Victor, Walton is an explorer, chasing “the land of eternal light” knowledge without a teacher. The influence of Victor on him is paradoxical: one moment he exhorts men near Walton rebels to keep the way with courage, in defiance of danger, the next day he acts like a pathetic example of the dangers of heedless scientific ambition. In its final decision to end his pursuit treacherous, serving as a foil Walton (someone whose traits or actions contrast with the increase and by another character) to Victor, or obsessive enough to risk death and almost certainly not brave enough to let his passion for the ride.
