  6. 6. The author uses setting to convey fear in this section. We can see this in the quotation ‘it was on a dreary night of November’. The author is illustrating a sense of impending doom. The line ‘dreary night’ creates an sense of gloom and misery to the reader like in a horror film. Shelley could be making the reader feel worried for Frankenstein and what might happen as well as giving a sense of the fear that Victor felt.
  7. 7. Shelley uses pathetic fallacy to create a sense of gloom and misery. This is established immediately with ‘it was a dreary night of November’. This provides the reader with a sense of foreboding and fear. This doom is further emphasised by the fact it is November so the reader is sure of both the literal darkness as well as the metaphorical darkness that Victor is about to be immersed in. This use of the darkness and bad weather are also a characteristic of the Gothic genre, a popular genre in Shelly’s time.

  16. 16. • Mary Shelley emphasised Frankensteins emotional turmoil with strong alliterated words. We can see this at the monster’s creation: ‘With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me’. This shows he is obsessed because his emotions are too over the top. The use of the alliteration emphasises the ‘agony’ that Frankenstein is in like he is a physical pain. Mary Shelley could be suggesting that Science has gone too far as lots of bad things then go on to happen to Frankenstein, proving that he was wrong to meddle with nature in this way.
  17. 17. Mary Shelley uses a powerful description emphasised with alliteration to present Frankenstein’s tumultuous emotion; this shows his desire to create life as damaging from the start. At the moment Frankenstein is about infuse life into the creature, his excitement is described as dangerous: ‘With an anxiety that almost amounted to agony, I collected the instruments of life around me’. This quotation is made more powerful by the fact that it comes at the moment of the monster’s creation – showing that Frankenstein’s obsession is dangerous from the outset. The reference to ‘anxiety’ implies that there is reason to worry, that something could go wrong, and ‘agony’ suggests there is more emotional pain to come. This sense of impending doom is exaggerated by the alliteration of ‘anxiety that almost amounted to agony’, which sounds exclamatory and painful. Frankenstein’s obsessive behaviour is held up as a warning against mankind’s interference with (and perceived superiority to) nature. The book’s subtitle, ‘The Modern Prometheus’ highlights the danger of mankind looking to overreach himself and foreshadows Frankenstein’s ultimate downfall. This message was a key part of the Romantic ideal, a literary movement in which Shelley was a key figure and a possible warning to the scientific experimentation taking place that the time.
