Having been created over a long period of time, then brought to life,
the Creature has passed the nearly six years of his existence being

viscerallly painful, a creation without anesthesia. The violent negation of
his original being is a corollary to the way in which hatred replaced
love as his bond with Victor Frankenstein.
