Reality is not exclusively defined in actual experiences Real truth often comes from human ideas and emotions Many authors express ideas that are often very true through the use of fictional stories In fact ideas expressed in works of fiction are many times more true that ideas expressed by citing actual events Ironically this is often the case because writers of fiction are uninhibited by reality and are able to explore thoughts and feelings freely This is certainly the case in fictional novels such as Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or The Color Purple by Alice Walker In Frankenstein Shelley explores some aspects of human nature specifically human lust for power and the unfortunate way we deal with it once it is achieved Dr Frankenstein achieved the power of giving an inanimate body life This is a Godlike power He continues to play God by passing judgment on his creation The tragedy is he as well as all the other people the monster comes in contact with fails to see the good in his creation that is obviously there If Dr Frankenstein is the monsters God then the monster is literally Godforsaken Considering the situation the monster reacts in a very human way It is largely agreed in American society today that a child who is isolated from human interaction cannot be blamed for hisher actions and that neglect is one of the worst forms of abuse In the same way Frankensteins monster is not at fault for his acts of destruction but is actually the victim In fact if there is a villain in this story it would be Frankenstein for his abuse of his monster Shelley is also commenting on human prejudice especially concerning appearance She avoids tapping into any prejudice the reader might already have by creating a person the monster that no one has experienced and therefore can have no prejudice towards If the story had been about injustices
