Even if unintentionally, Victor is to blame for the monstrous things (murders) that occur in the novel. But is Victor to blame because (1) he broke the rules of God/science/Nature and made a creature or (2) he did not care for his creature, did not take responsibility for his creation.

Take ONE of these positions and argue it in at least 300 words.
