Most people know Frankensteins creation They know the massive frame and the glazed eyes They know the abomination walking with his arms extended in front of him his verbal skills limited to long monotonous grunts and his thirst for blood The creature these people know as Frankensteins creation is an aberration of the true being He is an agglomeration of the best monster descriptions available conveniently using the novel Frankenstein as a story The novel was turned into a meaningless thriller because the novel is a complete contradiction of our culture as defined by Arnold What was originally a deep interpretive piece of literature was turned into a meaningless horror flick To find the true meaning of the work we must forget the popular escapist version of Frankenstein and return to the original Mary Shelleys Frankenstein challenges our ideas to the extent of being incomprehensible to a public that does not want to think and an industry that is afraid of forcing them to do so Frankenstein is totally opposed to the generally accepted views of death in modern as well as eighteenth-century culture Arnold stated that culture is a conglomeration of the best ideas theories and hypotheses available Where these thoughts concern life and death we accept that humans can and should attempt to prolong life as much as possible However it is also believed that death in and of itself is beyond mortal control As such our race and life in general widely and rightly fears death Frankenstein disposes of this notion of death Without this age-old belief many philosophically and morally challenging questions arise Should people be tampering with the barrier of life and death to begin with Would it still be necessary to prolong life if the menace of death could be nullified Could a mere mortal hope to control a being who has been to the grave and returned These are questions that most people would rather not deal with
