The Torn Antelope

“I could have torn him limb from limb, as the lion rends the antelope” (124).

Frankenstein’s monster is showing a connection to humanity by displaying emotions. He is not pleased with a reaction from someone, and the only way he knows to react to this is through violence. However, the Creature restrains himself temporarily and does not harm the person that has caused him anger. He realizes that he his strengths rends him capable of immense brutality, but he does not wish to be aggressive like the lion.
