“I was dependent on none and related to none. The path of my departure was free, and there was none to lament my annihilation. My person was hideous and my stature gigantic. What did this mean? Who was I? What was I? Whence did I come? What was my destination? These questions continually recurred, but I was unable to solve them.”

– Mary Shelley

Frankenstein, Chapter 15. The monster to Victor. He is unable to make any sense of his existence and he cannot find his place in the world and the link with humankind.
