Description

Mary Shelley‘s literary masterpiece Frankenstein illustrates the consequences of creativity unchecked. The reader learns in shock about how these consequences affect Frankenstein‘s mind, his friends and family, and even the monster he creates. Frankenstein seeks to be worshipped as the creator of a new species. However, once he realizes with revulsion what he had done, it is too late. The monster is gone, and the downward spiral of Frankenstein‘s existence begins. My project will examine the negative consequences of Victor Frankenstein‘s creativity. Unlike modern movie adaptations which glorify Frankenstein for his genius, Mary Shelley‘s novel depicts the horrors that follow the creation of this grotesque being.
