Subject

Deconstruction of human identity

Description

Mary Shelley, daughter of famed English philosopher and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, wrote Frankenstein at the start of the nineteenth century as the framed narrative of an inanimate heap of body parts brought together through an unknown process to create a human-like creature through artificial means.

The seemingly inhumane quality of the creature allows Shelley to explore in his story what it means exactly to be human.
