Hubris (extreme arrogance) is, of course, one of Frankenstein's major themes. If it were not for Victor's tragic flaw of hubris, the book's plot would be completely different, for Victor states that his goal in creating another human is to bring glory to himself. He desperately wants to be recognized for his accomplishment. Likewise, his refusal to admit the truth to others who could actually help him subdue the Monster stems from his belief that he can handle the situation himself and his pride in his reputation with his family and friends.
