This paper analyzes the narrative technique used by Shelley in her famous book, "Frankenstein" and explains how she uses the first-person accounts of the three narrators to effectively demonstrate the two sides of human nature by revealing their subjective points-of-view, and by showing how the events in the tale impact each speaker from his own viewpoint.

From the Paper:

"Walton is Shelley's vehicle for directing her readers through the story's plot; he is a guide that is not directly involved in the story who expresses the appropriate reactions to the tale's events and the narratives of the monster and Frankenstein. At the end of the novel, we find that Walton's life parallels issues that the other two narrators have faced, but he chooses to return to civilization rather than living a solitary, scientific, and perhaps doomed existence.
