Mary Shelley's innovative image of man-made life is taken as emerging from the confrontation of her hopes for secure love with painful events in her life with Percy Shelley. Badalamenti's Argument proposes that her novel served as a waking expression of unconscious feelings of hurt in reaction to Percy. The monster's role is here decoded as her way to consciously process the idea that parts of her relation to Percy were so hurtful as to deform it into a miscreant. It is further proposed that the losses and frustrations of her earliest years inclined her to accept Percy's violations in the hope of the secure love she longed for.
