What does director Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994), directed by Kenneth Branagh, have in common— a mutual underlying story; but their differences are what makes their tales all the more special. Edward Scissorhands is a retelling of Frankenstein, but with a slight twist. In Edward’s case instead of lacking companionship like Frankenstein’s monster, he lacks hands; and is received rather well by the surrounding community. Ironically, in both tales the characters share the same desire to be love; this ignites the question – why do humans want to be love? Are we only important as we are loved? Fortunately, Tim Burton touched basis on that intricate part of the underlying story. Although Edward Scissorhands is not a science fiction narrative in the way Frankenstein traditionally regarded it still shares the same theme and narrative elements.

The intertextuality used to connect these two stories, allow Shelley to bring out the most prominent themes of Power and suffering.

Much of the novel is based on the characters ' reputations, how they have to maintain a good public image, as they are upper class people.

Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, is one of the most important and popular novels in the Romantic genre to this day. The novel was originally controversial because it touched on many fragile subjects such as the human anatomy and the development of science. The structure of Frankenstein begins as an epistolary, narrative story told by Robert Walton to his sister in England. Walton’s letters tell us that he is exploring, searching for what lies beyond the North Pole, and he eventually connects with Frankenstein. Shelley creates the protagonist, Dr. Victor Frankenstein, who has a fascination with life and death. Gensis states; “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him.” Humans, therefore, were created as a likeness
Throughout Frankenstein, Shelley uses Victor to warn the reader of the dangers of aspiring to godliness, and the consequences one faces in the aftermath doing so, even going as far as to compare Victor to Satan, tempting the crew of Walton’s ship, in the book’s final pages. The Victor Shelley creates is very similar to the Satan created by Milton in his book, Paradise Lost, which explores the biblical tale of Adam and Eve. In Frankenstein, Victor speaks of his desire to create the Creature, saying, “I deemed it criminal to throw away in useless grief those talents that might be useful to my fellow-creatures.” (152).

Both of these Gothic novels explore pertinent themes of humanity with contrasting points of view.
Mulkay expressed that articles had written had focus on the similarity between embryo researchers and Mary Shelley 's scientific villain. Based on the articles, readers believed that the the scientists are dangerous and must have a limit over them. This connect back to my thesis is that in Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein went overboard into creating the monster as it came to life by using science and the monster threatened society. As he misused science, he went over the limit into creating another human being with dead human parts. In Brave New World, the D.H.C and other scientists are misused science for cloning and conditioning human beings as they used scientific experiment.
