Help with Frankenstein assignment
In this thread we will turn to a novel that has inspired movies, shows, comics, and…Halloween costumes. But, what do you actually know about Frankenstein—the character, the novel, the author, and the time in which it was created? The book, the character, and figure of Frankenstein within the story, were created at a time when creationism as such was a hot topic. Have you thought about how the creation of a “human being” (if we call Frankenstein a human being) by a scientist (that is the premise of the novel) plays into the discussion of the theory of evolution? What can we learn from studying the effect on a culture by such novel in combination of learning about the findings and theories of culture?
