Question 1 response paper prompt:

This is a question that came up during class today, but I’m not sure we reached a satisfactory conclusion. We can all agree, I think, that Victor Frankenstein’s repeated decisions not to tell anyone about the creature he has created are, to put it mildly, unwise. In fact, many of us might think he is being not only cowardly but downright negligent: after all, he is allowing what he knows (or believes) is a murderous creature to run free, while poor Justine nobly faces the punishment for young William’s death. So my question to you is this: Why does Victor Frankenstein refuse to tell anyone about his creation? There are a great many possible answers to this question and a great many possible interpretations of his behavior in this first volume of the novel. So for your first response paper, I would like you to try your best at offering an answer to this question. Why doesn’t he tell anyone? Anyone at all! What’s his deal?

As I have said before, this response paper needs to be at least one full page, 12-point font, Times New Roman or something similar, double-spaced. And as I explained in class today, this paper is intended as a chance for you to refine and develop your thoughts about the book we’re reading, building on the discussion we had in class and on the blog. It should take the form of a clearly defined argument, with specific examples from the text to defend your position. Please make sure your name and the name of the assignment are both in the document itself (preferably at the top of the page) and in the file name.

(For example, please don’t submit a file called like “assignment.doc” — I know it’s a bit selfish on my part, but that kind of thing just makes it a lot more difficult for me to keep track of all your work, which in turn makes it more difficult for me to give you all good, comprehensive feedback. I would love it if you could name the file something more like, for example, “nick brown response #1.doc” or even “nick rp1.doc.” Really, as long as either your first or last name is in the file name, then I’m happy.)

I will send you all a link to the Dropbox folder where I would like you to submit your response papers. They are due this Wednesday night by midnight. I look forward to reading what you all have to write! Thanks again for a great class today, and I’ll see you all again next week! By the way, I’ll remind you now that next week our Zoom meeting is not on Monday, but instead on Wednesday, because next Monday is Labor Day. I’ll remind you again this weekend, but I figured I should mention it.

 

Area of the textbook for question 1:
Mary Shelley, Frankenstein. “Preface,” (PDF pp. 24-25)
“Introduction to Frankenstein, 3rd Edition,” (PDF pp. 191-195)
Volume I (PDF pp. 26-82)

Question #2 response paper prompt:
For this week, we read about Victor Frankenstein’s remorse over the deaths of his brother William and of Justine; we read the beginning of the Creature’s own account of the first few years of his life; we read Kant’s rightly famous essay “An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment?”; and we read a brief excerpt from Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.” In class, I discussed a few different ways that we could read the novel Frankenstein as referring to, contradicting, critiquing, or endorsing the Enlightenment ideals of liberty, reason, and intellectual progress that both Kant and Wollstonecraft write about. My question to you, then, is this: Does the novel Frankenstein, or at least the sections we have read so far, support or criticize the ideals of the Enlightenment that we find in Kant and Wollstonecraft? Is Mary Shelley pro-Enlightenment or anti-Enlightenment? Of course I don’t think there is an easy answer to the question, and I don’t expect you to come down firmly on one side or the other. But what I’d like you to write about is how the Enlightenment ideals we read about are presented in the novel, and whether they are portrayed in a positive or negative light. As always, I need you to use specific examples (quotes are always helpful!) from the novel, and ideally also from the two essays. The goal here is for you to take a stance: to make an interpretation about the text and defend it with arguments and evidence. I look forward to reading what you all think!

Area of the Textbook for question 2:
(1) Frankenstein, Volume II, chapter 1-6 (PDF pp. 83-112).
(2) Immanuel Kant, “An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment?”
(3) Mary Wollstonecraft, from A Vindication of the Rights of Woman

 

Question #3 response paper prompt:

In Frankenstein, Volume 2, Chapter 9, the Creature tells Victor that if he creates a companion for him, then he will agree to live in exile, far away from human civilization, and stop his destructive acts. Victor replies,

“How can you, who long for the love and sympathy of man, persevere in this exile? You will return, and again seek their kindness, and you will meet with their detestation; your evil passions will be renewed, and you will then have a companion to aid you in the task of destruction.” (103 [PDF 127])

Compare this to Satan’s soliloquy early in Book IV of Paradise Lost, where he laments,

“O had His pow’rful destiny ordained
Me some inferior angel! I had stood
Then happy: no unbounded hope had raised
Ambition.” (IV.58-61)

What is the relation between these two passages? Compare and contrast Satan’s lines with the lines Victor speaks to the Creature. What is each of them suggesting about responsibility and free will?

You may also want to consider these two passages in relation to the following lines from the Creature in Volume 2, chapter 8: “I, like the arch fiend, bore a hell within me” (95 [PDF 119]), as well as Satan’s words from Book I: “The mind is its own place and in itself / Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven” (I.254-255), and his similar lines from Book IV: “Which way shall I fly / Infinite wrath and infinite despair? / Which way I fly is Hell, myself am Hell” (IV. 73-75).

You don’t need to discuss all of these passages in your response, but I would like you to try to consider the relationship between the Creature and Satan, as well as the ideas of responsibility and free will, as reflected in these lines.

Area of the textbook for question 3:
(1) Frankenstein, Volume II, Chapters 7-9; Volume III,
(2) Chapters 1-2 (PDF pp. 112-143).
(3) Selections from John Milton, Paradise Lost.
