    The relationship between Frankenstein and the monster was very complicated and I think there was more than just grief or remorse at his death.

    New question:

    Was he made purely from human corpses, human + animal corpses, or from inanimate matter?

    There isn't a correct answer (the book doesn't give enough information), just wanted to see what everyone thought.

    I would guess purely from corpses, after all I'm pretty sure Victor's primary field of study was medicine and I doubt he'd have the engineering knowledge to create something small and workable to be used in the creation of the monster. Although I seem to recall being told that Mary Shelley was partly inspired by old stories of Golems who were made from inanimate matter and controlled by a holy word.

    The real question is whether or not the Monster existed in the first place.

    frakenstein's monster wasn't a monster, until frakenstein himself revolted at his own creation. If frakenstein had cared for him and loved his creation, as he should have, then things would have been different. Frakenstein's monster wasn't born evil or bad, but became what his creator already thought he was. Even so, I wouldn't say he was bad, since he gave Frakenstein what he deserved (killing his family) for abandoning his creation.

    If frakenstein had given him a name it would have shown love and compassion, which he didn't show at first. my interpretation might be wrong since its been a while since i read the book.

    But does the monster actually exist?

    The Monster would never have become a killer if it weren't for his treatment at the hands of the family in the cottage.

    that is most likely true.... but he also may have acted different if victor didn't abandon the monster.....
