Now, if we booty Frankenstein and analyze his accessory at this moment to his creation's abominable appearance, you'll acquisition that both accession aerial concerns. You see, by the time Frankenstein creates the monster, he boring begins to cast into one himself.

This is an archetype of duality/duality.

At this point in the story, Walton has spent several canicule with Frankenstein and is accomplished concern. He is alike accomplished allotment him as a beastly being, rather an absorbing creature. In his eyes it seems Frankenstein is a devious animal, gnashing his teeth, abatement at any act of affection as if he was beggared of this, as if he was craving from abridgement of benevolent beastly contact. This abundantly mirrors the monster's 'personality'. At first, he agency well, although he doesn't apperceive anything, he helps the ancestors in boxy times, and watches over them.

“My atmosphere was sometimes violent, and my passions vehement; but by some law in my temperature they were angry not appear babyish pursuits but to an acquisitive admiration to learn, and not to apprentice all things indiscriminately." Chapter2
In this adduce Frankenstein admits to a agitated temper, and this accordingly mirrors that of the monster's as he is captivated with bareness and a activity of exile.

Frankenstein shows actuality in this adduce the alpha of his isolation. This happens to altogether mirror that of his creation's. As he continues his project, he lives in his "solitary chamber", in his "cell”, adopted from the blow of society.

In the aforementioned way the monster is abashed back he sees how abject he looks and is affected to animate a activity of solitude.
In the four belletrist and 5 capacity we were aboriginal alien to the characters. We see two abandon of Frankenstein, one - Clerval's friend, Elizabeth's accessible approaching love...'normal'. The alternative ancillary is the one that arose afterwards the afterlife of his mother, the one that came out from the admiration to put an end to death, the over compulsive, over-ambitious ancillary of Frankenstein. As the adventure begins we aboriginal see Frankenstein from Walton's point of view. We see agrarian eyes, skinny, desperate, and lonely. We see a creature. And as the adventure abruptly switches to Frankenstein's point of view, there is a abrupt change. For Frankenstein is a 'human being' as he narrates, and gone is the crazed accessory in his eyes.
As Frankenstein begins, we apperceive no misery. It follows the “knowledge is sorrow" abstraction in a sense, back as we progress, and as we apprentice more, the adventure gets gloomier and we worry, but for now, the accent is added or beneath 'content'. At first, I wasn't abiding why Mary Shelley absitively to absorb a few capacity on Victor's childhood, but after on I accomplished that the afterlife of his mother was an important allotment of his psyche, forth with the accent of introducing Henry at an aboriginal date - acceptance us to become acquainted with him from the start.
I accept a big allotment of why Henry alike exists in the adventure - besides the purpose of actuality a bounded accompaniment - is to adverse him and Victor. From the additional affiliate we see that while Victor accepted his “temper was sometimes violent, and my passions vehement; but by some law in my temperature they were angry not appear babyish pursuits but to an acquisitive admiration to learn, and not to apprentice all things indiscriminately," Henry was the abrupt opposite. He was focused on the adventures, he busied himself with actions, but he was not over-ambitious, he was added level-headed. And so with this allegory relationship, we readers see acutely the dangers of Victor's behavior. He becomes affected over the borsch of activity and philosopher's stone, he capital to accession ghosts, etc. Back we see him we see amoral and too affecting for his own good.
In affiliate 4, Frankenstein mentions he hasn't been home in 2 years, instead he formed on his goals of authoritative assertive discoveries.

I knew my blackout afraid them" This addled me as awkward and emphasized his affected behavior alike further. Though Shelley didn't say, I acquainted like I could draw the cessation that he didn't aloof “not visit” he didn't address home either. He was already blame himself abroad from society, and this was aloof the beginning.
Leading into affiliate 5, Frankenstein is finishing up his activity back he assuredly snaps out of his accompaniment and realizes what he has done. He has nightmares and wakes up to acquisition his creation, his baby, animated at him.
As Frankenstein puts activity into his conception he starts to die and the monster becomes animate - able to thrive.
