  2. 2.  Simple meaning of psychology: it is the science of the mind, human mind is the most complex machine on the earth. It is the source of all thought and behaviour.  Frankenstein is a novel that finds itself a victim of psychoanalytical criticism.  Victor Frankenstein had no plans to create both male & female, but request for a female companion comes as a sock to his psychological nature.
  3. 3.  Fight between „creator‟ and „creation‟ because both have different mind.  In psychological study Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung‟s theory are important.  Two types of words in the novel, it shows mentality of human being.  Monster  “free”  Victor  “cultured”  The monster not only represents a part of Frankenstein‟s fractured psyche but also serve as a symbol of Frankenstein‟s phallic desires.
  4. 4.  Freud defines human mind as three parts, Id Ego Super- ego Id Ego Super-ego
  5. 5.  Jung defines that human mind have three layers,  And it changes with situation.  conscious Sub- conscious Unconscious
  6. 6.  A Freudian analysis of Shelly‟s novel understands that the creature and creator represents the id and ego of one entity, Frankenstein‟s subconscious mind is the darkest aspects of his mind.  In Freudian reading, the novel expresses tragedy of conflicts within a individual consciousness.  Monster as dramatic representation of ego, id.  Novel is totally based on theory of mind, human nature and thought, reflects through monster‟s character. That how man feel? or what they want?
  7. 7.  At the end monster weeping over Victor. The monster tells Walton of his immense, solitude, suffering, hatred, and remorse.  At the end we feel sympathy for monster more than Victor.  „Learn from me, if not by my precepts, at least by my example, how dangerous is the acquirement of knowledge and how much happier that man is who believes his native town to be the world, than he who aspires to become greater than his nature will allow.‟ — Victor (chap.4)
