Victor Frankenstein (Frankenstein) Victor Frankenstein is the protagonist of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s 1818 horror novel, Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus. A rich young scientist who strives to create life out of an inanimate object through the use of chemistry, he leaves college in order to pursue his consuming dream. His success results in the birth of a monster of sorts, a kind of demon, who repulses his creator by his ugliness. The creature, rebuffed and lonely, tries to assimilate into the world around him and begs Frankenstein to create a mate for him. Frankenstein, however, horrified with the God-like ramifications of what he has done, refuses and spends the rest of his life hunting down the creature in order to destroy it. Along the way, it is Frankenstein’s overreaching shot at divinity that results in the deaths of his brother, his wife, his best friend and his father. At the novel’s end, it is Frankenstein who is destroyed and the creature who stumbles on to a fate we can only guess at.
