Quick post tonight.
Finished volume one. Started volume two some time ago.
Yes, I am aware the novel dates back to the 1800’s. Either way, if you haven’t read it: here thar be spoilers, Arrr.
Victor continues to be an ass. He’s anything but a tragic hero and certainly not terribly likable. I wonder if that was Shelley’s intention in writing him. Requires more research.
The version I’m reading is the annotated and uncensored 1818 text. So, nice tidbits about certain parts of the novel and so much less heavy handed. Will mention some later.
Last time I read Frankenstein was in 7th grade. I remember really enjoying it but nothing else about it. So, I’m wondering if the creature did in fact kill Victor’s little brother as he (Victor) believes or if it was someone else. There’s really no reason for the creature to have strangled the boy. Then place the locket with the maid? I dunno. Guess I’m just really hoping for another round of “Victor, you got out wrong again, you little shit.”
I do enjoy how very vague Shelley keeps the methods to which Victor gives life the creature. Provides the reader with their own mix of theories. Will discuss further later.
That’s bout it for now. Time for me to pass out. Gnight, gang.
Anonymous asked: Isn't it kind of interesting how when a mass killer is a white male the very first thing the media does is discourage speculation and emphasize that he wasn't representative of any larger group?
Fuck our racist and cowardly media.
