Frankenstein Mary Shelly Analysis

418 Words1 Page
Mary Shelly speaks much about life, existence, and creation in Frankenstein. A mad scientist named Victor has a different goal in life apart from the rest. Victor’s goal is to create something similar to the human race. Much like God, Victor has created a human; only this human is more of a monster, also known as Frankenstein. Stitched together from deceased body parts, Frankenstein was far from beautiful, or even normal for that matter. His lack of good looks left him alone and cut off from the rest of society. Always pondering existence, the monster is confused why Victor created him.

One could say Frankenstein is playing the role of God, in bringing pieces of the dead back to life. Victor created Frankenstein, much like God created Adam.
