“Nothing is more painful to the human mind as great and sudden change.”
Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelley 1818 depicts the tale of Victor Frankenstein and his journey to finding a cure for death. I was able to identify the story’s antagonist by analysing the traits of passion, control and dualism within Frankensteins creation. Through dualism we were able to understand that initially the creature was a relatively ‘good’ being but developed a hatred for the human race. But the creature also had a fiery passion and drive for the wanting of a female companion which he could only acquire by controlling Victor with vengeful threats.
