وواجب هذا الأسبوع كان عن خالدة ماري شيلي، فرانكشتاين !
أمتع واجب واجهته حتى الآن، لقد عشت داخل اليوتيوب وأنا أبحث عن سيرة ماري والظروف التي جعلتها تكتب هذه الرواية وتطور من أحداثها!
معلومة قد تصعكم كما أدهشتني: فرانكشتاين ليس أسم الوحش، بل أسم العالم الذي صنعه، حيث أن الوحش لم يُسمى في الرواية!
هاكُم واجبي :
Marry Shelly portrayed the term of Humanity in her novel “Frankenstein”, She presents three main characters that fluctuate between savagery and urbanization. R. Walton, frankenstein, and the monster was all under the pressure of the society surrounding them, suggesting that men is good by nature, but being distance from culture and positive interaction leads to barbarous. Walton explain this saying in his letter to his sister: “I greatly need a friend who have sense enough not to despise me as romantic, and affection enough for me to endeavour to regulate my mind.”. He Bring out the main reason of Frankenstein’s and the monster’s fall in his letter; he wanted a friend who had sense enough not to “despite” him – this is what Frankenstein do to the monster, he abounded and despited him-. And he wanted a friend to ” approve or amend my plans” so he can restrain himself from being passionate about things that will eventually will ruined him.
Walton actually is a representation of both the monster and Frankenstein, he is eager to explore and devoted himself to science. But, he is in misery because of his loneliness where no friend that he can share his thoughts and worries with. Shelly combined the three main character in a way that they can relate to each other. When Walton feels ” deep grief fills him with sympathy and compassion” on the inquired Frankenstein we see clearly the differences between his case – Frankenstein” and the Monster’s, for he didn’t find a soul that sympathized him nor a place he could feel secure in, unlike Frankenstein who finds humans who overwhelmed by affections.
So Shelly’s story was mainly about a monster who rambles around us all, but it is not a monster it is the ” loneliness” that inhabits men’s heart and turns them into savage creatures that search for empathy and secureness.
