Imagine being looked at and automatically being assumed in the most negative, narcissistic way possible; this was what Frankenstein's unnamed monster faced throughout his life. In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, the monster that Dr. Frankenstein made is experiencing this exact problem, even though he did nothing to deserve that treatment. The book Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, conveys a strong message of people always relying on their own experience and ideas before objectively seeing a situation for what it really is; this can directly be seen with the saving of a girls life, the monsters interaction inside the hovel, and the ending sequences with Walton. An event that expresses the theme seen in Frankenstein is the saving of the young girl’s
The combining of two words like gothic and romance seems unnatural, but there can be love in a horrifying tale. That is why Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is an excellent example of a Gothic romance novel. Shelley mixes gothic and romance with Victor’s creature/monster who yearns for love, but without it turns to revenge. As the creature shares his travels with his creator he states, “ 'Believe me, Frankenstein, I was benevolent; my soul glowed with love and humanity; but am I not alone, miserably alone?
The novel “Frankenstein,” by Mary Shelley tells the story of a man named Victor Frankenstein, who decides to go against the laws of nature by bringing to life a being constructed with decaying body parts. Victor believes in natural philosophy and science, which leads him to the idea of creating this Creature. Although this novel can be interpreted in many ways, I believe that Mary Shelley is shining a light on the harmful and dangerous impacts that prejudice and assumptions can have on people who are considered different. Shelley may be suggesting that humanity is the true 'monster ' due to its socialized ideologies that make ambition, self-greed and rage fulfilling. Even to this day society is known to shun those who we do not see as equals.

7) Discuss how two texts studied have explored the connection between a sense of place and purpose. Our place and purpose are fundamental aspects of who we are as people. Where we fit into the world around us and the role we play in that world are often explored through texts that explore the views of the author or director. Texts sometimes show how even with a well established sense of place, our purpose can be unintentionally lost and through our interactions with society, can be altered.
As children, we imagine what we will one day become and all of the accomplishments we will achieve, but what if this opportunity were stripped from our grasps by the people we deem most important? What if the people meant to offer guidance and support were to abandon us? In “Parent-Child Tensions in Frankenstein: The Search for Communion” by Laura Claridge, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and “The Childhood Trauma” by Alice Miller, we see the significance of parental affection. Whether it is abuses or embraces that we face, they make an impact on the person that we will transform into, so in Frankenstein when Victor Frankenstein despised his masterpiece and chose to flee, it altered the creature’s entire development. Despite the importance of
Superficial Judgement Throughout history, several groups of people have been judged and discriminated based on race, ethnicity, or gender. Even today, prejudice is alive and well as many groups continue to be placed at a disadvantage in terms of opportunity or even by being massively excluded from society. Not often has total exclusion and isolationism been a problem for humans as everybody is of some use and is bearable to some extent. While the people who do the discriminating have their own narrow-minded justification for doing so, those on the other end of the issue almost never fit the horrible prejudices that the discriminators presume.
The Ancient Greeks believed the gods blessed good people with beauty. Comparably, the Romantics shared a similar notion that inner goodness would externalize into physical beauty. Mary Shelley’s Romantic novel Frankenstein explores the theme of whether outer beauty correlates with inner morality via the Creature, a sentient artificial life who is highly intelligent but grotesque. The Creature’s monstrous appearance causes others to ostracize him and transforms him from an innocent creature to a morally ambiguous antagonist, contributing to the greater theme of outer beauty and inner good.
In the film “Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein” directed by Kenneth Branagh was based on the book “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. Victor, the main protagonist, is against the adversary monster he has created. The movie as I consider should earn a “D-” for there was excessive flaws upon the based of the novel, however, few key points was correctly shown that would flow the movie.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein released in 1818 takes us through the journey of several of the most famous characters in literary and movie history from two perspectives. While Mary Shelley’s original interpretation is considered a very popular and successful literary work, it wasn’t until James Whaley’s movie interpretation that the character of Frankenstein became so famous throughout the world. The movie which was adapted from a screen play written in the 1920’s became one of the pioneering horror films due to James Whaley’s inspiration of essentialist styles originating from Germany. Both works bring different elements to the table with Shelley’s novel involving complex but interesting moral debates involving the characters and their decisions
Both the creature and Victor had similarities ; wanting to seek revenge to destroy , was selfish with life the creature thought of himself as ugly saying make him someone as ugly as he is that wouldn’t fear him.
