When Shelley wrote Frankenstein, her intent wasn't to portray him as a "mad" beast. Movies created that monster, not the author. Shelley's creature is intelligent, possesses feelings, and is affected by his role as an outcast. Not belonging and not being accepted hurts him. Her creature was a model for society to look at and morally wonder how they react and treat the people around them, specifically if they're different.
