Frankenstein

By Mary Shelley

This is an English book report on "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley

Frankenstein The story of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley is about a man who
created something that messes with nature, and nature came back to mess with him
because nature is more powerful than man. Victor Frankenstein was very
interested in natural philosophy and chemistry and basically tried to play G-d
by creating life. When he found the secret of activating dead flesh, he created
a superhuman being composed of rotted corpses. What he did was considered
unthinkable, and he was haunted by his own creation. When the monster escaped,

Frankenstein knew that he had to deal with the consequences of what the monster
might do. Frankenstein received a letter one day which informed him of his
younger brother William\'s murder, and immediately suspected that he was
responsible, for he was the creator of the hideous monster. A friend of the
family named Justine Moritz was the "presumed" murderer, and

Frankenstein was determined to prove her innocent. Circumstantial evidence,
however, led the courts to believe Justine guilty, because found in her pocket
was a photograph which had belonged to William. Justine had been put to death,
and Frankenstein had yet to find his creation. Finally, upon their meeting, the
monster confessed to his creator of what he had been through, how he was
rejected by society, and finally, how he had come to kill William. When William
had revealed his name to the monster, the monster immediately figured that by
killing the young boy, he would have revenge on Frankenstein for giving him
life. The monster did not understand the concept of right and wrong and he
especially didn\'t mean to kill anybody. His expression of anger ended up being
violent, even fatal to the victim, and it just worked out that he killed people.

As the monster\'s story continued, he demanded of Frankenstein a female mate who
he can be with until his end, and promised to live away from society.

Frankenstein, meanwhile, tried to restore the monster\'s demented mind so he
could live a normal life. Although at first Frankenstein agreed to create a
friend for the monster, he changed his mind for fear that between the two of
them, his life, as well as many others, would be in danger. The creature wanted
revenge, and so everything important in Frankenstein\'s life ended up being
destroyed, including his wife and best friend.
