Victor Frankenstein had always been fascinated by nature and always wanted to conquer the unknown. Victor betrayed nature by creating the Monster. I believe he was creating the Monster to replace the lonely feeling he had about his mom dying. Which brings me to the theme of the book; I think the theme of the book is abandonment. Frankenstein feels abandoned by his mother and the Monster feels abandoned by Frankenstein.

After creating the Monster, Victor took one look at it and took off. "But I escaped and rushed downstairs. I took refuge in the courtyard belonging to the house which I inhabited; where I remained during the rest of the night..." (Pg. 59) When he returned the Monster was gone and Victor was very happy for that. Check out the rest of this essay below,
