Frankenstein — Final Discussion (April 24, 2017)

In your discussion groups, discuss and form a consensus opinion on the following questions, using your book to compile evidence as needed. Take notes to use in our full-class discussion tomorrow:

  1. Victor Frankenstein had numerous opportunities to stop the events in the novel from happening. In your opinion, what was his “point of no return” moment? When did the events of the novel become inevitable? What makes this moment so different from the others?
  2. Ultimately, who is most responsible for the events of the novel — Victor or the Creature? Why?
  3. What modern lessons and messages does Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein contain for us today?
