Can someone who makes a monster be a hero?
(Is Frankenstein a hero?)
When most people think of Frankenstein they think of the big scary monster with the deep set eye the big forehead and the screws in his neck. Most would be surprised to find out that Frankenstein in fact, was the scientist who made the horrifying monster. The monster was really never named through his life in the story. When most people think of Frankenstein many thing comes to mind, all the movies that have been made about the monster, the Halloween costumes of the monster, and the fright that it has sent to people. So what is scarier now that the book has been read, the monster or the scientist who created something that should have never been created? Mary Shelly named this novel, Frankenstein; the modern Prometheus because the god Prometheus had some evidence that the science of technology could somehow be a good thing. In the novel, Frankenstein, by Mary Shelly, it is quickly learned that maybe the real monster is the scientist who tried to play God in the creation of an unliving human.
To begin, Frankenstein isn’t a hero because he trying to be God, messing with the creation of life. The creation he makes is a man, with a brain from another body. He takes a live brain and places it in a different body that is life less. This sort of thing is like trying to be God, who is should be the only creator of life. Mary Shelly is giving a great example in her book, Frankenstein, of that fact that as the future approaches scientist try more and more things to keep people alive. She was right when she saw the future, if science continues to excel people could up being brought back to life with no problem. Many will see this as a great thing, not having to watch family members go out of the world, watching their lifeless body and missing them. But what about the fact that God created the world so that everyone had a time and place to die? Some of the medicine and cures for things are great to help people, but when is it to far? There needs to be a stopping point, before...
