Novels That Impacted the Monster of Frankenstein
In the novel Frankenstein written by Mary Shelley, the monster is shown four different readings that shaped his outlook on human existence. The four novels are Paradise Lost by John Milton, Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe and Ruins of Empires by Constantin- Francois de Volney.
Understanding that these four novels impacted the creature in a positive manner, hopefully would change him for the better. The four books would be Carrie by Stephen King, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Dracula by Bram Stoker, and Brave New World by Kathryn Aldous Huxley. Each of these novels take a stance for power and courage in the characteristic of an individual regardless of the physical and emotional hardships they face throughout the novel. Carrie written by Stephen King is a wonderful book to connect to Frankenstein’s creation. The novel is a transition from the author’s earlier novel “Sorrows of Young Werter”. Just like Frankenstein, when Carrie was born she was rejected and outlasted by others. When Carrie finally gains confidence and realized her inner light, she fights against those who has tormented her, even her own mom. In the end of the novel Carrie dies, however when she became aware of her powers she died a fighter against those who have bullied her and devalued her of her worth as a human.
Personally I feel like Frankenstein would be able to relate to Carrie because he happened to be a monster on the outside as well, but a sweet, and loving person on the inside, who didn’t deserve the treatments he received. Carrie and Frankenstein were both able to find the light that burned so deep inside of them, and prove to the people who never believed in them. The good lies within everyone.
In the novel To kill a Mockingbird by Harper lee share a lot in common with Frankenstein by Mary Shelly.Tom Robinson and Frankenstein are being targeted because of their appearances.Frankenstein gets discriminated upon because people think he’s ugly and dangerous. Robinson in to kill a mockingbird is seen as the antagonist, and is accused of raping a caucasian women by the name of Mayell Ewell. Prejudices played a huge factor in this novel, and because Tom Robinson is an African American male he was forced into segregation just like Frankenstein was. In Frankenstein Shelley stated “He is pursued by the ignorant villagers, who think he is evil because he is ugly”, this corresponds into To Kill a Mockingbird when Lee said “ My pity does not extend as far as to her, putting a man’s life at stake.
These two quotes are related because they both tie into Robinson and Frankenstein’s life that is being risked because of their differences in society, and the people that are judging them are too bigoted to understand the impact they are causing in both Robinson’s and Frankensteins life These two novels are obviously similar however they are also quite different. One of their differences is the fact that Frankenstein has a true friend that accepts him for who he is, unlike Tom Robinson who doesn’t seem to have anyone who truly cares about him. They both died at the end of their novels, however they died different deaths. Robinson knew how he was going to die, however Frankenstein did not have the brain capacity to understand how the human lifespan worked.
