group 3 (Martina Schvarzstein, Nicole Aizenberg, Nicholas Damiko and Lautaro Benito)
After being rescued from near death, Victor Frankenstein tells Robert Walton the story of his growing up in a warm Swiss family and his fascination with studying how life was formed. He was an amateur scientist who created a "perfect" human from spare body parts - only to have his plan backfire when the monster turned out to be extremely ugly and frightening.After observing a family living in a small cottage, monster Frankenstein had the courage to look for an invitation before getting rejected again. He looked for revenge of the person who created him.During his trip back to Geneva, Switzerland - the monster met Frankenstein’s younger brother and killed him for revenge. After his brother’s death, Frankenstein went back to Geneva and found the monster canvassing the same woods his brother was last seen, coming to the realization the monster was responsible for this brutal act. After a short trip to the mountains, the monster caught up to Frankenstein and ordered him to create a female monster from scratch for companionship. After agreeing, he scaped to England to start and scrapped the project , citing the possibility of more confusion. Knowing his days were numbered after Henry Clerval’s murder, he married his cousin Elizabeth only to find his new wife killed by the monster later.After paying a visit to the cemetery to meet with his fallen family members, Victor realizes that his life’s goal from that point forward was to hunt down the monster and kill him. Before, Victor already determines his fate and goes ahead with his wedding day, knowing the monster would catch up to him. Now, he planned to kill the monster to save humanity from his threat. Victor followed him all over Europe and the North Pole, where he temporarily loses track of the monster through a crack in the ice where he also meets Robert Walton and his crew. Ambitious, Victor gives a lecture on how glory was his weakness and the dangers of being too ambitious, citing "tranquility" as one of life’s goals.
