    Victor Frankenstein's charge sheet

    Victor Frankenstein seems to have been very irresponsible, not just about making the monster but his in neglecting his duty of care for it afterwards, and for not informing the authorities when the murders started taking place. It is difficult to work out which was the worst.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.

    Honestly, I think the fact he started making a monster in the first place was a mistake. Creating a monster goes against the laws of God and Nature. Out of the two choices available, I think neglecting the monster was the worst choice. If he had followed through with his scientific duty and maintained observation of his subject, none of this would have happened.

    Yes, as things turned out, a very, very bad mistake. Still, quite a feat of accomplishment.
