review Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus 103 G from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness Tormented by isolation and loneliness the once innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator Frankenstein Frankenstein an instant bestseller and an important ancestor of both the horror and science fiction genres not only te. Some books teach you something new each time you revisit them I picked up the tragically wonderful Frankenstein for a fourth time this week and I was totally mesmerised by the descriptive language used to describe the natural world In all my previous readings I focused on all the classic tropes of man and monster though I never considered the importance of the serene beauty that surrounds the story The natural world dominates the background of the novel It s there like a pervading monster that lingers in the darkest reaches of the mind What struck me most about it was the fact that both Victor and his creation long for a real life a life where one is truly alive And they both ponder what this means at length reaching the same conclusion to go completely nomad They both wish to live a life free of burden and complications no money no commitments and no responsibility They just want to be totally free in the wilderness with the ultimate goal of finding happiness by looking after their most immediate and natural desires And for me this says a great deal about society not just the society in which this was written but society in general how many of us feel truly alive Original Review Let s have a party Victor Let s get together and celebrate all things Gothic and dark and wonderful Let s have it in an attic in an old house in the middle of a thunderstorm and then afterwards let s go to the graveyard with our shovels and our body bags Sounds good doesn t it Victor We could then create our own doppelg ngers from the corpses of criminals and geniuses Then we can abandon our marvellous creation to fend for itself with his childlike innocence and then wonder why it goes so horribly wrong and blows up in our faces AhhVictor you silly brilliant man On second thought we probably shouldn t have that party Because if we did it would end in blood Yes lots of blood the blood of everyone you love the blood of all your family Victor You blame the monster but you are his creator You should have taught him the ways of the world and guided his first steps The things you two could have accomplished together So I ask you this Victor who is the real monster Is it the creature that has gone on a murderous rampage or it you You are the man who played at god and was horrified at the conseuence You judged your creation by his physical appearance which was a reflection of your vain soul AhhVictor you silly brilliant man Surely you don t wonder why the monster revenged himself upon you I ought to be thy Adam but I am rather the fallen angel Indeed the real monster of this novel is Victor Frankenstein and not his monstrous creation The creature is a monster on the outside but Victor is on the inside which is a form much worse By abandoning the creature he has taught him to become what his appearance is The first human experience he receives is rejection based upon his physicality His own creator recoils in disgust from him He cannot be blamed for his actions if all he has been taught is negative emotion he will only respond in one way He is innocent and childlike but also a savage brute These are two things that should never be put together Woe to Victor Frankenstein s family There is love in me the likes of which you ve never seen There is rage in me the likes of which should never escape If I am not satisfied in the one I will indulge the other Mary Shelley raises uestions of the danger of knowledge and shows a probable conseuence of trying to play god the novel portrays nineteen century fears for the rising field of science and knowledge and uestions how far it could go Indeed in this case Victor takes on the role of a God by creating new life She also shows us what can happen to a man if he so driven by this thirst for knowledge and how it will ultimately lead to a fall Victor reminds me somewhat of Doctor Faustus The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus in this regard Faustus is a man who sold his soul to Lucifer for unlimited knowledge in the form of arcane magic Victor like Faustus has stopped at nothing to gain his goal but in the end is ultimately dissatisfied with the result Suffice to say I simply adore this book as you may have gathered from my ramblings I think this alongside Dracula are amongst the strongest representations of Gothic literature Further I have a real soft spot for epistolary means of storytelling I m not sure why perhaps it s the stronger sense of intimacy you fell with the characters as you see their words on the page rather than an impartial narrators You see inside their heads and understand their motifs and feelings My favourite uote This was then the reward of my benevolence I had saved a human being from destruction and as a recompense I now writhed under the miserable pain of a wound which shattered the flesh and bone The feelings of kindness and gentleness which I had entertained but a few moments before gave place to hellish rage and gnashing of teeth Inflamed by pain I vowed eternal hatred and vengeance to all mankind Listen to the passion to the intellect and witness such a wasted opportunity Victor you re a silly silly manYou

review Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus 103 Mary Shelley began writing Frankenstein when she was only eighteen At once a Gothic thriller a passionate romance and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science Frankenstein tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter Frankenstein assembles a human bein. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe If I cannot satisfy the one I will indulge the other From the 1994 movieThe worst thing about this novel is how distorted it has become by constant movie adaptations and misinformed ideas about the nature of Frankenstein and his monster For years like many others I thought Frankenstein was the name of that slightly green dude with the bolts in his neck Nuh uhDid Frankenstein scare me Did it have me staying awake and sleeping with the light on jumping at every slight creak in the house Was I terrified of the monster and technology and the dangers of playing God No Because the beauty of this story is that it isn t the one so many people think it is Which is almost my favourite thing about it This book is not a Halloween kind of story with Halloween kind of monsters This story is heartbreakingly sad once I falsely hoped to meet the beings who pardoning my outward form would love me for the excellent ualities which I was capable of unfolding The book offers many interesting avenues of philosophical exploration if one wishes to ponder such things For example allusions to religion and Genesis possible criticisms of using science to play God and the relationship between creator and creation All of these things interest me yes but it is the painfully human part of this book that has always so deeply affected me Because the sad thing the really sad thing is that pretty much everyone has heard of Frankenstein s monster but so many don t know how human the character is Created as a scientific experiment by an overly ambitious man he comes into a frightening and hostile world that immediately rejects him on sight Even the man who made him cannot look upon his creation without feeling horror It s that same thing that gets me in books every time things could have been so different If people had just been a little less judgmental a little less scared and a little understanding This being created from different parts of corpses seeks love and finds hatred so he instead decides to embrace it Fuelled by his own rage at the unfairness of the world he gradually turns towards evil He belongs in my own little mental category with the likes of Heathcliff and Erik aka The Phantom of the Opera Scared angry villains who were made so by their own unfortunate circumstances The kind of characters you simultaneously hate and love but most of all hope they find some kind of peaceSo call it science fiction if you want Call it horror if you must But this story is brimming with some of the most realistic and almost unbearably moving human emotion that I have ever readBlog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr
