Writelike Mary Shelley: Frankenstein's monster's lament



Let's write a variation on a passage from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Without any context, read this snippet and write down what you think is happening, and anything you notice about the structure and language.

"Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemblance. Satan had his companions, fellow devils, to admire and encourage him, but I am solitary and abhorred."
