Frankenstein: The Importance of Procreation

Plan for thematic analysis of Procreation in Frankenstein with a comparison to The Handmaid’s Tale.

  • Creation of Life: Traditional parent and child imagery
  • Gothic Doubling: Relationships tied together through birth and death as well as suicide
  • Power: God and the Creator figure. Transgression of the moral, natural and social order in both texts
  • Power: Agency in writer as creation. Feminine subversion of the novel form
