Please check my answer to this question:

Consider the protagonist in the novel that you read this semester. In a response of no fewer than three paragraphs, explain how this character changes over the course of the novel. Include examples of these changes in your response.


Victor Frankenstein changed in a few of ways throughout the novel, Frankenstein. Victor changed mentally and personality wise the most.

In the beginning, Victor Frankenstein starts out acting sensibly. But, the death of his mother changed him mentally. Victor became obsessed with dead things, or things with dead-like features, and created something more than he expected. He created an intelligent yet distorted monster and he kept his creation a secret. He wasnít expecting what would happen later on.

Throughout the story, Victor increasingly feels guilty and ashamed as he realizes how helpless he is to keep his monster from destroying his life and othersí lives. As that shows, he later starts caring about all individuals. From a depressed, death obsessed personality, to a more passionate person. Victor Frankensteinís personality certainly changed. And most of all, his life changed.
