Traits Actions Evidence
Ambitious Not giving up when an teacher at the university said that what he had been researching his whole life was nonsense “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the out- ward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world. “
Caring He was very distraught to hear that his mother and sister were ill and then when his mother died During her illness many arguments had been urged to persuade my mother to refrain from attending upon her. She had at rst yielded to our en- treaties, but when she heard that the life of her favourite was menaced, she could no longer control her anxiety.
Foreshadowing The author fills the text with foreshadowing comments involving Victor Frankenstein (VF) “It is even possible that the train of my ideas would never have received the fatal impulse that led to my ruin.”
Lonely He tells his sister in one of his letters that he is lonely and he wants a friend “I have no friend, Margaret: when I am glowing with the enthusiasm of success, there will be none to participate my joy; if I am assailed by disappointment, no one will endeavour to sustain me in dejection. I shall commit my thoughts to paper, it is true; but that is a poor medium for the communication of feeling.”
Curious VF is very curious he wants to be able to know the secrets of life and death, meaning he wants to be able to create life. “Curiosity, earnest research to learn the hidden laws of nature, gladness akin to rapture, as they were unfolded to me, are among the earliest sensations I can remember.”
He is driven by an strong feeling of ambition and curiosity He wants to be rich famous and he wants to able to have the power of the gods and the power to bring people back from the dead “It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the out- ward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world”
