responsible for the deaths of Henry Clerval, William, Elizabeth, and Justine, and every person that was named was close to Victor proving the creature pursued to get back at Victor for abandoning him. After losing everyone Victor cared about, he asked Robert Walton for his men to help him pursue and kill the creature. Frankenstein endeavoured the vision of his evil nightmare’s life to come to an end, but it was nearly impossible because the amount of strength the creature possessed.

Worth 5 through various types of conflicting characters. Good versus evil was exhibited by Elizabeth and Justine as the good innocent humans in the novel, and Victor’s creation was the evil creature of nightmare. Victor always felt the guilt of all the crime the creature executed until he died of natural causes at the end of the novel; leaving his creation who was devastated by his death. Throughout the novel, the reason Victor felt that way was because it was him who created the evil creature who was the cause for everyone’s death. Elizabeth and Justine were only two of the innocent victims that the creature paralyzed because of Victor’s desire and love he had towards both of them. Although Victor’s intentions wasn’t to create a nightmare, he did, and it brought upon the evil crimes to the innocence. The creature was a horrifying thing in numerous people’s visions, so he pursued to become the evil creature of nightmare they all saw him as being in the first place. Mary Shelley uses the innocence of Elizabeth and Justine to convey the evil in the creature of nightmare. In Frankenstein, the good is persistently outweighed by the evil deeds the horrifying creation of Victor Frankenstein committed time and time again.
