This paper explores the relationship of the master Victor Frankenstein and his monster in Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" as if they were God and Adam. Written as a letter, the paper delves into the reasons behind Victor's actions, his feelings and his torment. The paper concludes that Victor failed as a father in loving the monster because he did not give his son the camaraderie he desired.

From the Paper:

"I fashioned myself as Prometheus. I took from the hand of the death and put together life; I breathed air into your lungs dear friend, I stole the fire from the Gods and gave it to you. Albeit you blame me for being selfish in this endeavor: my creation was merely a flaunting of my skill. This is true, but given the choice did you want to remain an unconscious being or did you want the light of the gods? Did you want to live in the secret of your soul? "

Sample of Sources Used:

  • Shelley, Mary. (1995). Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus. Ed. Maurice Hindle. Penguin, New York.
