Knowledge

Facts, information and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the understanding of a subject

Knowledge from Fire

"When night came again I found with pleasure that fire gave light as well as heat."(Shelly,86)


When he was near the fire he stuck his hand in it to stay warm but instead burned himself. He learns that you can use fire for good and for bad.

Knowledge from Spoken Language

"I was unable to discover any clue by which I could unravel the mystery of their reference." (Shelly,93)


When he hears the family talking he doesn't understand what they are saying. As he listens to them talk every day he starts to match words to objects and their emotions.

Knowledge from how to read

"While I improved in speech, I also learned the science of letters as it was taught to the stranger, and this opened before me a wide field for wonder and delight." (Shelly ,99)


When he hears the little boy reading a book and sounding out words he does the same. He can then later read Victor's journal.

knowledge from sympathy

"I discovered also another means through which I was enabled to assist their labours. During the night I often took his tools, the use of which I quickly discovered, and brought home firing sufficient for the consumption of several days." (Shelly, 92)


When he discovers that the family is in poverty and takes their food he tries to be nice by gathering them fire wood and crops from the field.

knowledge from how people react to him

"I remembered too well the treatment I had suffered the night before from the barbarous villagers." (Shelly, 91)


He remembers from the Geneva when he was being beat and yelled at because of how he looked.

knowledge from william

"Frankenstein! You belong then to my enemy- to him towards whom I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim." (Shelly, 122)


When William is in the woods and sees the creature he starts yelling for his father who is Victor. While doing so the creature realizes who he is and kills him.

Knowledge from William

"I am alone and miserable; man will not associate with me; but one as deformed and horrible as myself would not deny herself to me. My companion must be of the same species and have the same defects. This being you must create." (Shelly, 123)


When the monster finds out that Victor lives in Geneva he hunts him down and tells him he needs to create a friend for himself.

Modern connections

There are three types of learning styles in the world; these include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. These three styles help people discover and find new things as you grow older. They help you learn what is good or bad and what you should and should not do. Learning something is always a good thing and these techniques help demonstrate that.


A visual learner uses visual objects such as graphs, charts, and pictures to see their information. They can read body language well and have a good perception of aesthetics. They are able to memorize and recall various information. They tend to remember things that are written down and learn better while watching lectures. This is seen in the book when he learns how to read, write, and talk. He would sit back and watch the children and the parents interact and learn how to read and write themselves. The creature learns that the family is poor and cares for them by bringing them supplies.


A auditory learner retains information through hearing and speaking. They often prefer to be told how to do things and then summarizes the main points out loud to help with memorization. They tend to notice different aspects of speaking. They also often have talents in music and may concentrate better with soft music playing in the background. This is also seen in the book while the creature is learning to read and write. He also learns of how people think of him. When people see him they tend to scream and treat him poorly. Also when he finds out about Victor's family and seeks revenge.


A kinesthetic learner likes to use the hands-on approach to learn new material. They are generally good in math and science. They would rather demonstrate how to do something rather than verbally explain it. They usually prefer group work more than others. You can see this in the book when he discovers fire. He used it visually to see that he can use it for warmth and light, but when he touches it he finds out that it hurts. You are more kinesthetic when you want to find out how something feels or how to use something.


Why is knowledge important

Knowledge is power. We drive cars instead of riding horses. We live longer because of medicine. Knowledge is what makes us prevent from making the same mistake twice. Knowledge is what helps us learn better. It helps us learn more complex ideas faster. It helps us understand and solve problems. Knowledge is key to success. Without knowledge in your brain you wouldn't know how to function at a high level.
