Only bad witches are ugly. That is the famous phrase uttered by Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, after Dorothy reveals that she has never seen a beautiful witch before. Stereotypical roles of the beautiful heroine and ugly villain are so common in drama and writing, that it is unusual not to see them. In Disney movies, the villain is almost always ugly, while the hero or heroine is beautiful. In The Little Mermaid, Ariel is a very attractive young mermaid, while Ursulathe villainis an obese, coarse-voiced octopus hell-bent on stealing Ariel's gorgeous singing voice. In Cinderella, poor Cinderella is a beautiful girl even beneath all that dirt and soot.
[...] It makes little sense for Frankenstein to be against the idea of creating a companion for the monster, for his creature is only evil out of sheer loneliness and isolation.

I sympathized with the creature throughout the entire novel, even when he committed murder, simply because every murder he committed could have been preventable. The only reason it was [...]
[...] In the next lines Frankenstein makes the statement which shows the severity of his narcissism. He assumes that a female version of his creature would most likely not suit the creature's fancy simply because she would find him repulsive as well, and desire the beauty of man instead. His internal dialogue continues in the lines, also might turn with disgust from him to the superior beauty of man; she might quit him, and he be again alone” (170). Frankenstein continuously makes bold declarative statements in which he personifies the beauty of his own kind in comparison with the creature's. [...]
[...] He grows articulate and shows kindness towards Frankenstein at first. He does threaten him but only in an attempt to persuade the doctor into creating a female creature. But it is only out of sheer loneliness, isolation, and desperation that the monster resorts to murder. His creator ignores him, avoids dealing with the threats made on his loved ones' lives, all because—as he claims—he wants to do the thing. For if one monster is wicked, two would surely be doubly wicked! [...]
