Romanticism and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

profileAbdullah1418


1. How is science portrayed in Frankenstein? Consider that this book was written in the midst of vast scientific advances and the advent of the Industrial Revolution. Are we living in a similar period today? What contemporary issues seem based on Frankenstein's-monster-type fears? (Try googling "Frankenfood" for some ideas.)
2. At its heart, Frankenstein is interested in the question of nature vs. nurture: are people blank slates that are formed by experiences and environment, or are we born with certain traits—like being evil? What does the book/film seem to suggest?
3. What's the point of the frame narrative? Why do we begin and end with Robert Walton searching for the North Pole?
