You have several options for this assignment:

PICK ONE of the Seven OPTIONs

Option #1: Can science go too far?

There is an ongoing battle between faith or spirituality and science that has been active even

before the time of Mary Shelley. What are some of the dilemmas she addresses that are still

important today? What are some of the ethical questions she brings up regarding the

scientific definition of life and death? What does she illustrate the power science has

to blur the line between life and death? What is the current news item that is similar to this

issue?

Hint: Develop a thesis that answers a question like this one: “How and how well does Mary

Shelley’s Frankenstein address ethical issues of science and/or faith for audiences, regardless

of when they read the novel?”

Option #2: Discovery

Both Frankenstein and Walton are trying to discover something important to them. What

parts of their real lives drive them to discovery? Does that drive still exist today? While we’ve

mapped the globe, are there still geographical places for people to explore? In science, are

people still trying to discover the meaning of life, how to save life, and how to defeat death?

What methods do they use? Are there better ways to accomplish these goals than others?

What are some of today’s motivations for discovery?

Hint: Develop a thesis that answers a question like this one: “How and how well does Mary

Shelley’s Frankenstein address human discovery as a theme?”

Option #3: World Perception and Prejudice

Reread the paragraph where the creature describes the book from which Felix teaches Safie.

It begins: “The book from which Felix instructed Safie was Volney’s Ruins of Empires…”

What are some of the perceptions and prejudices from the book that Felix teaches Safie?

How have these perceptions and prejudices changed, if they have, in today’s society? What

are some present-day situations and references that may claim a lack of prejudice or open-mindedness, but, in fact, are still very prejudiced, racist, sexist, etc.? Why do you think

these situations still happen? Can anything be done about it?

Hint: Develop a thesis that answers a question like this one: “How and how well does Mary

Shelley’s Frankenstein address human prejudice in the world throughout time?”
