Important Quotations Explained
saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student
of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together.
I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on
the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir
with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely
frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous
mechanism of the Creator of the world.
I request thee, Maker, from my clay
To mould me Man, did I solicit thee
From darkness to promote me?
may not be expected in a country of eternal light?
much has been done, exclaimed the soul of Frankenstein—more, far
more, will I achieve; treading in the steps already marked, I will
pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world
the deepest mysteries of creation.
the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at,
and kicked, and trampled on.

The book doesn't specify if the monster was created by one man or several or how he was brought to life. I think we can safely guess that the monster was brought to life using electricity because it has such an influence on Victor. SPOILER ALERT. I would also say that is safe to say that the monster was probably created using more than one man because later on Victor tears apart/destroys the monster's companion before he completes her creation. These are just my thoughts and if anyone has anything else they would like to add please comment

When you say the the Monster was created by more than one man, do you mean that Victor was assisted by other people; or that the contents of the Monsters body were the product of more than one person?
