Hey Alex, I did answer this before. What I found tricky is interpreting your "new, inventive, and original" part of the question. Victor wanted to create life which was new and inventive but I don't think he wanted a legacy. The Monster simply wanted to be loved. Perhaps this is original but I don't think the creature meant it that way. Shelley wrote a great gothic story that will be around for a very long time. Did she want to be remembered? Really, I don't know. Walton might have wanted to be seen as an innovative explorer/ adventurer.
