The creature describes “the fatal effects of this miserable deformity” (Shelley 117) as something that prohibits him from living his life. The connotation of “fatal effects” imply that because of his looks, the creature suffered life threatening circumstances because of it. When he confronts a family he feels close to, the men attack him mercilessly and he is forced to flee. Next, the phrase “miserable deformity” used to describe himself conveys the suffering and anguish since the reason why he lives such a low quality of life is due to others. This shows importance because through the word choice of “miserable deformity,” the monster illustrates ugliness as a major disability which will then cause negative effects.
