Nature is a healing power for the characters. The monster finds a healing power in nature after being rejected by the society. He feels very miserable yet his only refugee is nature as it heals his pains. Frankenstein himself gains strength from the air and the natural scenery after losing all of whom he loves at the hands of the monster. Shelley states "We passed a fortnight in these perambulations: my health and spirits had long been restored, and they gained additional strength from the salubrious air I breathed, the natural incidents of our progress, and the conversation of my friend."
In Mary Shelley's Frankenstein many symbols are represented throughout the book. One of those symbols is light. Light stands for life. Also, light functions in Frankenstein through knowledge, discovery, and enlightenment which are parts of life.The symbolization of light connects the story of Prometheus, a Greek god. Prometheus gave the human race the gift of light because of this he was punished.
He appears to take pleasure in nature, whether this be him sitting on the beach, or walking through a garden, he enjoys nature, even at his worst and when he is near death. For example, in the garden scene, Leopardi, though barely able to walk, limps through the garden, taking solace in nature, reaching down to earth and grabbing the soil, as if he is striving to hold onto something earthly. He is, despite his agony and pain in his dying days able to find peace and pleasure with the earth, with nature, something, he struggled to do with humans. In his poems, like To the Moon, he often alludes to the beauty of the moon, referring to it as “o graceful moon” or “beloved moon of mine”.In other works he refers to the flocks of birds, and how he envies them and wishes to be like them. Not having to concern himself with trivial human matters, merely he could just exist.
Throughout the novel there is no difference between someone 's outer and inner beauty, ultimately one 's physical appearance ends up influencing how others character 's perceived them. “Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay, To mould me, Man, did I solicit thee, From darkness to promote me?” (Milton, Book X, 743–745). The following quote appears in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, when Adam grieves over his fallen condition. The creature within Frankenstein, can identify his feelings and compares himself to both Satan and Adam. However, like Adam, he feels shunned by his creator, although he strives to be good.
Not only does war affect the companions of those lost, but it much more directly affects families. After the Trojan War, Odysseus shipwrecks on Kalypso's island, and lives far away from his family, without any contact. The loss of Odysseus bears a lot of weight on his loved ones. Telemachus “...inherit[s] trouble and pain…” (Homer, 9) from the loss of his father. Odysseus’ absence leaves Telemachus empty and without one of his parents needed to guide him through life.

From the survival TV shows we watch with people doing just about anything to live, to the survival games kids play like Minecraft, everyone is fascinated with survival. However, no one acknowledges what surviving as a person in this massive universe really mean. Stephen Crane’s, “The Open Boat”, address this theme.

“ Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.” -John F. Kennedy. Like JFK, Mary Shelley believes that a person’s fate is caused by a person’s actions. Fate, due to a person’s actions, are suggested all through her book Frankenstein as a theme. For example, Victor and the creature's fate could have differed depending on the decisions each of them made.

Eric is put into his dissociative state because of the death of his wife and Scout is believed to be a reincarnation of Clio. Throughout the novel, we are motivated to believe that in Eric’s mind the relationship between himself and Scout is not connected to the relationship he had with Clio. The reader’s assumptions are much different from this relationship and is finally supported at the start of chapter thirty-four where the Ludovician attacks the boat and as Eric yells out “Scout” while searching for her, his mind accepts the reality of everything “propping [him]self up against the sloping cabin, quietly, wet with sobbing tears, “Clio.”” (415).
