Research Question: What text most shapes the Creature’s identity or sense of self, and how?
In Volume II of Frankenstein the Creature finds three books that contribute to his education: Milton’s Paradise Lost, Plutarch’s Lives (also sometimes called Parallel Lives), and Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther. Two other books that Shelley references are Volney’s Ruins of Empires (which unfortunately it is difficult to find quality information about), and also implicitly is one written by her mother, Wollstonecraft’s Vindication of the Rights of Woman.
Research one of the books listed above to learn more about it and to learn more about how it shapes the creature’s identity. You can read exerpts (or the whole thing, of course!) from the source you choose, they are all available for free on Gutenberg.org. Use quotations from Frankenstein to support your argument, as well as quotations and paraphrasing from your research sources (primary and secondary).
Proposal
Thesis: The text that most shapes the Creature’s identity or sense of self in Frankenstein is:
Support: 2 quotations from Frankenstein that support this thesis are: (don’t forget the page numbers!)
1.
2.
Summary of your primary source: Read about the text you chose in the Literary Reference Center database (make sure you note your source in MLA format). Then summarize the content of the source in your own words, while referencing the source either by quoting or paraphrasing. Alternatively, you may also read excerpts of the primary source (or the whole thing if you are very ambitious!).
Analysis: Based on your research and analysis of the texts, explain why you think that this source is especially important to shaping the Creature:
Annotated Bibliography
Secondary Source 1: Library Database Source
Recommendations:
Literary Reference Center database for Encyclopedia articles
JStor database for scholarly articles (you can even search for the two primary texts together, e.g. “Frankenstein and Plutarch’s Lives).
MLA Citation (if you are using a database, there will be a way to have the site generate a citation for you):
Summary of the source (what are the main things you learned from reading this source? What is the author’s point of view or argument, if there is one?):
Support: 2 quotations from your secondary source that support your thesis are: (don’t forget the page numbers!)
1.
2.
Secondary Source 2: Another database article or other academic source, for example:
Articles or websites from museums and libraries (e.g. The British Library, The Library of Congress, The British Museum, etc.)
Articles published on academic websites (.edu)
Other articles that explicitly indicate they have been peer reviewed by scholars (here is a good one, for example: https://romantic-circles.org/editions/frankenstein/V2notes/ruins)
If you are unsure about a source, please ask me about it!
MLA Citation (if you are using a database, there will be a way to have the site generate a citation for you; some academic sites will also do this. You may have to look it up, though):
