Frankenstein/Defending the Monster
A 4 page essay that argues that Mary Shelley's portrayal of the Monster in her novel Frankenstein, indicts Dr. Victor Frankenstein rather than misbegotten creature that he brings into the world. In Shelley's novel, it is clear that the monster is an innocent, a "child" who has been deprived not only of his birth right, which is the love of his "parent," Dr. Frankenstein, but also of being able to have any place within human society and all because of his appearance, not because of his character. An examination of Shelley's text makes it clear that it is human society and, specifically Dr. Frankenstein, who is at fault and not the poor monster who did not ask to be created.

Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein': Characterization Development Of Protagonist Victor Frankenstein
5 pages in length. Mary Shelley' Frankenstein utilizes several components in developing the characterization of protagonist Victor Frankenstein, which becomes quite clear when one examines character description, character behavior, other character's thoughts about him, as well as what he thinks about himself. In this precedence-setting novel, Shelley’s novel is more than it
appears on the surface; clearly, when one looks at the dark undertones and truly begins to feel what Victor was doing and feeling throughout the story, one might wonder whether Shelly's purpose was to portray Victor as more a representative of death
rather than life. Within the first chapter, the reader finds Victor possessively obsessed with his adopted sister Elizabeth, who, he claims, was 'my more than sister, since till death she was to be mine only.' This early indication sets up the reader for the further understanding of his obsessive nature, ultimately leading to the conclusion his character development. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Shelley's Frankenstein/Dangers of Scientific Progress
A 6 page essay that examines Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The writer argues Shelley's novel seems to speak directly to the modern reader and offer explicit warning against scientific discovery unregulated by restrictions of morality or responsibility. Victor Frankenstein, Shelley's brilliant protagonist/scientist, suffers a tragic downfall worthy of the ancient Greek tragedians. Shelley's text suggests that this occurs due to two failings. First of all Frankenstein, like the ancient Greek tragic heroes, is guilty of hubris, that is, excessive pride, of "attempting to be like God" (Madigan 48), but also, he initially does not take responsibility for his actions. Furthermore, in his hubris, Frankenstein exhibits two characteristics that he himself castigates, "cowardice and carelessness," which he exhibits in the manner in which he deals with his creation (Shelley 37).
