1. There was a sense of having to “talk down” almost as if though “Adam” were a child, cooing as though he were an infant. There was a sense of discomfort and Victor did not see Adam as a person, but rather as an object that needed to be eradicated.

When referring to the comment above it can be used to understand themes that can be seen throughout Bernard Rose’s film, Frankenstein. As the comment clearly states, Adam is seen copying and imitating human emotions as well as the actions done by other humans. Although the difficulties are demonstrated through the way Adam acts, Adam demonstrates having the capability to understand human interactions, Victor chooses to ignore this and neglects Adam. Which eventually leads to Adam understanding that he did not reach his creator’s expectations.
