When I was a kid this scene really upset me. Not because of what he does but more because, while the result was, of course, tragic and damning, the Monster really believed he was just playing.
The blame falls on his creator; Frankenstein created something extra-human, something that had to first learn how to be human. The Monster was not a man yet; he was something new and flawed.
He is us.
