It is very difficult to keep from sympathizing with the monster in Chapter Ten of the novel. The monster is sad, devastated, and miserable with the life he has been given, a life he never asked for, by a man who abandoned him without thought to the consequences for both of them. The fact that the monster is Victor's creation makes the reader empathize all the more. He blames Victor for his state, and with good reason. The monster wanted to be good.... it was the actions of others that brought out the violence he perpetuated. The monster had no teacher, no mentor, no example.... he was cast off like garbage with no thought to the repurcussions.
