A 5 page analysis of Mary Shelley's novel in terms of these two dominant literary movements of the nineteenth century.

Bibliography lists five sources.

A 5 page comparison of Victor Frankenstein himself with the Creature he made.

Mary Shelly's "Frankenstein": The Theme of Nature
A 10 page discussion of Mary Shelley’s incorporation of nature in her novel. The author of this paper contends that Shelley employs nature to contrast the characteristics of Frankenstein and his creator Victor as well as to emphasize the error of mans ways in going against nature.

Comparative Analysis of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” and Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”
A 5 page paper compares and contrasts the relationships of each literary work, God/Satan, Frankenstein/Creature, Marlow/Kurtz, in order to demonstrate how there is a progressive erosion of religious belief from “Paradise Lost,” while man searched for the meaning of life which he hoped he would find through the knowledge of science and the acquisition of material wealth, while never quite relinquishing the traditional religious myth that some knowledge is divinely forbidden. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
Shelley's 'Frankenstein' vs. Wharton's 'The Age of Innocence'
A 7 page paper in which the writer argues that while both women were expressing changing attitudes in femininity thought in their books through contrast and duality, Edith Wharton's view was made through an expansive flowing growth and Mary Shelley's was from an explosive view. The purpose of both stories was to show the need for men and women to come together in equal treatment of women during different eras. Whereas Wharton looked at the changes from the idea of growing together, Shelley's view was of killing off the old ideas. No additional sources cited.
