Man vs self, Internal conflict – Frankenstein

“often did my human nature turn with loathing from my occupation whilst still urged on by an eagerness which perpetually increased, I brought my work to a conclusion.” – Victor Frankenstein

“I was tempted to plunge into the silent lake, that the water might close over me and my calamities for ever. But I was restrained when I thought of the heroic and suffering Elizabeth whom I tenderly loved and whose existence was bound up in mine.” – Victor Frankenstein struggling with reasons to live and die. Hate vs Love

Man vs Man, external conflict – Frankenstein and the Monster

“I do not know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other ” – the monster – This quote is the monster threatening Frankenstein to create him another being like him so he is not lonely, he blames Frankenstein for the misery and loneliness he has

“from that moment I declared everlasting war against the species, and more than all, against him who had formed me and sent me forth to this insupportable misery.” The monster

Beware; for Iam fearless, and therefore powerful.”
