In the book, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, complex forms of imagery, tone-developing diction, and a variety of well-organized and composed themes are utilized to further envelop her story and engage readers.

With all the extraordinary characters and controversial details in Mary Shelley’s original 1818 edition of Frankenstein, sometimes Robert Walton and his letters are overlooked. Despite being one of the most easily ignored characters in the story, a little explication of his letters can uncover extreme and bizarre behavior.
