It has been questioned by people, honored by people and revered since the beginning of
time. Yet even today not one person can say what is morally right. It is a matter of
opinion. It was Dr. Victor Frankenstein's opinion that it was alright to create a
"monster". Frankenstein's creation needed a companion. Knowing that his first creation
was evil should the doctor make a second? With the knowledge at hand, to Dr. Frankenstein,
it is not at

his family in mind, the doctor begins his work on the second monster. The first monster

threatened Frankenstein and even his family. The monster angrily said to Frankenstein, "I

if powerful enough, could possibly take over Europe. Frankenstein realizes that he can

not possibly doom the world to benefit himself. "Shall I, in coold blood, set loose upon
the earth a daemon.."(pg. 162) argues Frankenstein with his creation. It is not morally

for one person to unleash such a terror on the world to benefit only himself and his
family. Frankenstein will not let any example change his mind on the point that the
