Abstract

In my thesis, I argue that instead of depicting Victor’s artificial reproduction or the advancement of technology as problematic, Shelley portrays the underdevelopment of literature— the way literature fails to develop a capacious mindset in Walton, Victor, and the other people in her fictional society who discriminate against the Other— as dangerous. Also, by endowing the “monster” with an innately healthy and sympathetic mind and rewarding the male mother with kind-hearted offspring, Shelley exemplifies the literary value of capaciousness.
