Frankenstein Final Assessment
Companionship/Friendship by Michael Murphy/Mac Mittereder
This is when Victor tells about his school friend Henry.
Victor is talking about how Henry was a good nurse that he trusted and knew he would do his best.
This is where the blind man is talking the monster and he’s telling him that it is unfortunate that the monster doesn’t have any friends but there are friends out there that are full of brotherly love and will be there for him.
To not be upset, even though that not being able to call someone your friend is unfortunate but there are still people that show compassion and will help anyone in need. This especially applies to today because there are certain relief programs that help people and there are people that are there to be friends with others so that someone is left out like the monster was.
The creature is telling Victor that he wants another person that will like him.
The monster wants someone that he can be with just like how today everyone is trying to find a person themselves. Today people want to find another person that compliments them so they can get married and the monster wants someone that he be with too.
Victor is writing to Elizabeth and is telling her how much she means to him. He explains that he doesn’t want to chase fears that aren’t there and that she is the center of his life.
Victor just found the body of Elizabeth and is explaining what he’s feeling when he sees what has happened.
This article describes the struggle of envy against friends when they're using social media. Social media allows people to dive into people's lives like never before, as people constantly update what they're doing. While social media allows continuous connection, it brings struggles to modern day friendships as well. Shelley wouldn't have been able to comment on this because computers weren't invented in the 19th century, let alone social media.
This article mentions how friendships are necessary to help you stay motivated. Having someone with similar goals as you to work towards helps you move forward. We agree, having someone with you to do something can boost your confidence and effort immensely. Shelley would probably agree, as Victor's friends and family motivated him to go to a university to pursue his studies in science.
