The writer of this paper believes that the entire story of Frankenstein provides the reader with a walk through the theory of Marxism and its foundational characteristics as well as a proposal about why Marxism did not succeed. The paper shows sections of the story of Frankenstein and compares them to the theory and beliefs of Marxism, exploring their similarities and differences.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history authors have used their works to present messages to the society that reads them. It is not always intentional, but as the story begins to unfold the similarities and differences to various political and social theories begin to present themselves. The story may take a direction that at first does not appear to be at all related to the theory in question but once the top layer is peeled off and the underpinnings are completely examined it becomes clear. One example of such literature is the story of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. This story at first glance appears to be about a man creating a monster, but when one examines the underlying and subtle messages provided throughout the book one will see the clear cut comparison of the story to the theory or Marxism."
