Frankenstein: A Reflection

I feel that Frankenstein has been a source of inspiration of its time. It has become an integral part of the society that we live in today. Frankenstein’d monster is considered to be the epitome of human loneliness and the need for us to have a connection with another person. All that the monster wants is to be loved and create his own identity. Even in failure, the monster wants to be able to forge his own identity, by requesting from his creator to create a female counterpart. Therefore, can Frankenstein be the manifestation of the culture around him. What I mean is that does it make sense that the monster will take on the persona of the environment around him.What do you think though? Please leave thoughts in comments and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

  1. Personally, I think Frankenstein’s Creature also represents the Tabula Rasa theory of development as his ideas and behaviour is shaped by his experiences as he goes from being a blank slate driven only by instinct to learning of the human ideas of love and friendship through books and observation to being driven to crime due to his rejection by society.
