Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Numerous People Thesis

… Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Numerous people come to know of Frankenstein only through films and cartoons. And many people know Frankenstein as a monster, created by a mad scientist, with bolts through its neck. According to Karen Murdarasi (par. 1), "this understanding of Frankenstein in popular culture doesn't do justice to Mary Shelley's novel of 1818."

The origin of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, according to Burton Pollin, has often been attributed to an event in 1816 in Villa Diodati, near Geneva, which is owned by Byron. In that event "ghost stories had been read aloud and everyone present agreed to write his own weird tale for the group." (Pollin 97) Frankenstein written by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley in 1818 is often described as a gothic novel which…. [read more]

Frankenstein and Romanticism Research Paper

… This piece of writing focuses more upon the methods of romanticism and the characteristics of romantic writers as people and not as abstractions.

This writer describes the lifestyle and cultural practices of romantic writers. This is another way for the reader to understand and draw out romantic themes in the novel.

With these quotations, the reader can see that romanticism reflected the world in general at the time, and it also reflected the specific group of writers and artists who called themselves romantic. Whereas other pieces offered a macrocosm of romanticism, this article offers a microcosmic view of romanticism; the focus is much narrower.

These quotes elaborate upon the characteristics of romantic writing, romantic thinking, romantics (the actual people), as well as romantic literature.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and James Term Paper

… Nevertheless, the parallels between the T-101 and the monster are more remarkable than their dissimilarities. The T-101 is a "learning computer," meaning that it is capable of acquiring knowledge beyond its initial settings. The film never suggests that emotions are ever within the machine's repertoire of learned behaviors; yet, it does experience some first-hand qualia. Namely, the T-101 feels pain. Naturally this is physical pain, but the film always makes it seem as if the T-101 is just on the cusp of feeling apparently nonphysical phenomena.

Furthermore, both the monster and the T-101 fail to fit nicely into human society; both recognize this and greet the information with the belief that they should be destroyed. The monster comes to this conclusion after suffering through his…. [read more]

Vindication of the Rights of Woman Mary Research Proposal

… ¶ … Vindication of the Rights of Woman

Mary Wollstonecraft's book a Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) was written as a response to the proposed state-supported system of public education that would only educate girls to be housewives, a proposal made by Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord, the French minister of education after the French revolution (Mellor 367). The passion with which Wollstonecraft wrote a Vindication of the Rights of Woman was derived from her personal experience of inequality as a young woman in a patriarchal society and also by the injustice she experienced in her own family growing up, an injustice experienced primarily because of her gender given that she was raised in a home where her older brother, Ned (who by law….

Metamorphosis and Frankenstein No Eve Term Paper

… When night came, I quitted my retreat, and wandered in the wood; and now, no longer restrained by the fear of discovery, I gave vent to my anguish in fearful howlings. I was like a wild beast that had broken the toils; destroying the objects that obstructed me, and ranging through the wood with a stag like swiftness. (Marry Shelly, Frankenstein)

We see the similar pragmatic attitude from the monster in Frankenstein, he realizes that people do not like his appearances and hate him so he tries to be friend with a man who is blind, considering that because he is blind and could not see his repulsive characteristic he will enjoy his personality. Abandoned by his creator and confused, he tries to integrate himself…. [read more]

Civilization Liberalism Term Paper

… The liberal idealism was rather naive if we are to look at what happened from the nineteenth century until now, just like Perry Rogers' book, "Aspects of western civilization" demonstrates it. The two volumes of his book present the evolution of mankind from numerous perspectives including the historic one, the social one, the cultural one and even the moral one. His is a speech which connects ethics with politics, religion, economy and science, aiming to explain, just as Zweig did, what happened and why it did not happen otherwise.

The main theme of the volumes is absolutism, just like the titles suggest it. Apparently, absolutism is a constant for both the old and the new world, despite the fact that so many things changed. Just…. [read more]

Lesson 1 Journal Entry #

Journal Exercise 1.3A: What makes a hero?

Beowulf is a hero who possesses strength, courage and loyalty; these are the elements that make up a hero during his time. There is a certain heroic code that must be followed in Beowulf and Beowulf follows that code perfectly. During the course of the poem, Beowulf changes as a person -- he matures, and this is a journey that is typical of heroes. Most heroes in literature don't start out as heroes. They may have the qualities lying dormant, but their journey is what turns them into a hero.

When Beowulf goes to fight Grendel, he is a strong and combative leader, but by the end he has…. [read more]

Journal Exercise 3.1A: Addressing Love and Loss

I have left someone without knowing when I would see them again. It was a relationship that was very important to me, but it was, ultimately, one that I knew was not going to work in the long run. I still loved this person. I felt so sad to know that I might not see them again, but I felt that there was no other way. They asked me to reconsider the relationships, to give it another chance -- which was the most painful part. I wanted them to see things like I did. I wanted them to be okay with what was happening, because then, in some way, I would feel better.

To leave someone…. [read more]

Role of Religion Term Paper

… He seems to be somewhat free of the strict codes of conduct designated by class and Christianity that permeated most other Victorian novels. Most significantly, the novel breaks from Victorian tradition in its almost overt paganism. To Hardy and many later modern writers, Christianity is abandoned, but the major questions surrounding spirituality remain the same.

Religion, though no longer an oppressive force violently imposing itself upon civilization, still offers solace to those seeking a substantive understanding of the infinite: "The explicit and manifest function of religion is to offer men the prospect of salvation and to provide them with appropriate guidance for its attainment." (Wilson, 27). For a time, the powerful structure of the Church violently rooted-out literary, scientific, and philosophical musings regarding spirituality that…. [read more]
