“Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley. Symbols: Analysis & Overview. 60second Recap® Study Guide Video by Jenny Sawyer. http://goo.gl/d80qiv
Mary Shelley’s mother, Mary Wollstonecraft, was a pioneering feminist, so it’s not surprising that “Frankenstein” has quite a bit to say about women and society. But you won’t hear Shelley’s feminist message from the women in “Frankenstein.” No, you’ll find it in the monster himself.

Joseph Stalin says:

Mary Shelly must be rolling in her grave to see all these terrible ideas being rolled around about her book

NYRE says:

shelley’s mother died while giving birth to her, so i dont understand how she was raised in a house where “women power was everything”.

Anuka says:

WOAH WHAT. THIS IS WHAT. AAH. mindblown

Tucker Dandenault says:

Mary Shelley's mother died when she was an infant. She didn't grow up in a feminist house.

PoseidonXIII says:

You just blew my mind! I have read this book twice and never thought of that. I love Frankenstein even more now, thanks!

Zak Kizer says:

Another feminist symbol could be the subplot involving the monster's Bride. The monster orders Victor to create him a mate so he can feel as though he has a place in society. However Victor can't go through with it. Maybe Shelley meant this as a means of saying women shouldn't be used by men to gain status.

Nikki Whiting says:

i love you so much right now
