Frankenstein-Final Assessment Jacob Soltis
"I had money with me and gained the friendship of the villagers by distributing it." (Shelley 181)
"They might even hate each other; the creature who already lived loathed his own deformity" (Shelley 144)
"Begone! I will not hear you. There can be no community between you and me; we are enemies." (Shelley 82)
"It is true that I have thought more and that my daydreams are more extended and magnificent, but they want (as the painters call it) keeping; and I greatly need a friend who would have sense enough not to despise me as romantic, and affection enough for me to endeavor to regulate my mind." (Shelley 5)
Modern connection to friendship
In the book Frankenstein, Mary Shelley writes about a scientist named Victor Frankenstein who created a creature but was immediately ashamed of his creation. There is a modern connection between the book and now. The creature tries to find companionship because Victor abandons him and wants nothing to do with him. In today's society we would just stop talking and drift apart. Maybe even have a little argument. When the family ran away from him now that would be seen as bullying. The modern connection between the book and now would be that now if a friendship would end they would drift away and maybe some bullying would be involved.
