Victor Frankenstein was very interested in natural philosophy and chemistry and
basically tried to play G-d by creating life. When he found the secret of
activating dead flesh, he created a superhuman being composed of rotted corpses.

What he did was considered unthinkable, and he was haunted by his own creation.

When the monster escaped, Frankenstein knew that he had to deal with the
consequences of what the monster might do. Frankenstein received a letter one
day which informed him of his younger brother William\'s murder, and immediately
suspected that he was responsible, for he was the creator of the hideous
monster. A friend of the family named Justine Moritz was the
"presumed" murderer, and Frankenstein was determined to prove her
innocent. Circumstantial evidence, however, led the courts to believe Justine
guilty, because found in her pocket was a photograph which had belonged to

William. Justine had been put to death, and Frankenstein had yet to find his
creation. Finally, upon their meeting, the monster confessed to his creator of
what he had been through, how he was rejected by society, and finally, how he
had come to kill William. When William had revealed his name to the monster, the
monster immediately figured that by killing the young boy, he would have revenge
on Frankenstein for giving him life. The monster did not understand the concept
of right and wrong and he especially didn\'t mean to kill anybody. His expression
of anger ended up being violent, even fatal to the victim, and it just worked
out that he killed people. As the monster\'s story continued, he demanded of

Frankenstein a female mate who he can be with until his end, and promised to
live away from society. Frankenstein, meanwhile, tried to restore the monster\'s
demented mind so he could live a normal life. Although at first Frankenstein
agreed to create a friend for the monster, he changed his mind for fear that
between the two of them, his life, as well as many others, would be in danger.

The creature wanted revenge, and so everything important in Frankenstein\'s life
ended up being destroyed, including his wife and best friend.
