This parallel illustrates a very simple concept. Shelley uses this parallel to define what we have come to know as nature vs nurture. Through the DeLacey family, we come to see the innate kindness and goodness in the creature. None-the-less, without proper nurturing, the goodness and kindness are replaced by cruelty.
