Victor Frankenstein is
one of the characters that seen have a bigger ambition. The ambition seen in
the novel to know Victor’s ability through creates a human being. As the story
told before his obsession to science make him insane to do more than people or
scientist before him did that is why he turn his ambition becomes a bad one, to
get acknowledgment that he can do more from the experiment. According to a
journal stated “The ambition is motivational formation
and represents aspiration of a person to be a significant and a recognized
personality to others for real achievements” (Krishcenko
et all, 291)

“Such were the
professor’s words-rather let me say such the words of the fate-enounced to
destroy me. as he went on i felt as if my soul were grappling with a palpable
enemy: one by one the various keys were touched which formed the mechanism of
my being: chord after, was surrounded and soon my mind was filled with one
thought, one conception, one purpose… i will pioneer a new way, explore unknown
powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation.”
(Shelley, 37)


means there is circumstances of what he had been done to reach his will till it
become ambition. His professor does not belief in what Victor’s learn from his
believe in natural philosophy. In addition, he proves it by his willingness to
pioneer a new way, to make his own creation.

However, the ambition in Victor character can be
described as the negative one. In one of the journal stated “There are
characteristic of ambition as negative quality, reason for development of
ambition and feelings that follow it are all sorts of fears and dreads;
achievement of the goal does not bring a sense of satisfaction and joy; person
experiences persistent anxiety” (Bursukova, 8). In a quote from the novel, “It
was on a dreary night of November, that I beheld the accomplishment of my
toils. With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the
instruments of life around me …”(Shelley, 45). It shows that the negative quality
from Victor seen when he has experiences persistent the anxiety while he makes
his experiment. Furthermore, Victor’s feeling that his goal about his creature bring
no satisfaction in quote “I had desire it with an ardour that far exceeded
moderation, but now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and
breathless horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect of
the being I had created …”(Shelley, 45-46). As a result of his ambition to make
a human being and it is alive to challenges what his professor and challenge
the nature, it brings consequences not only for himself but also the others.

because he spends time to focus on making his creature. Moreover, his creature
that he made not satisfied with what he expected. He

partner who can accept his deficiency because the creature feels that he was
wasted. However,
Victor decided not to make it because he thinks the consequences will be much bigger
if he has a partner. Therefore,
