There are many different themes expressed in Mary Shellys Frankenstein They vary with each reader but basically never change These themes deal with the education that each character posses the relationships formed or not formed in the novel and the responsibility for ones own actions This novel even with the age still has ideas that can be reasoned with even todayEach character has their own educational background which in turn has a large effect to the way they react and deal with the issues that face them One example of this is Victor Frankenstein he took his education into his own hands When he went to the University of Inglostaldt he intoxicated himself with the sciences so deeply that he never imagined the morality of what he was doing He stayed so involved and focused on his experiments that he did not take into mind what could happen because of the size of the creature Victor saidAlthough I possessed the capacity of bestowing animation yet to prepare a frame for the reception of it with all its intricacies of fibres muscles and veins still remained a work of inconceivable difficulty As the minuteness of the parts formed a great hindrance to my speed I resolved contrary to my first intention to make the being of a gigantic stature that is to say about eight feet in height and proportionatelylarge 52But when he finished the science that brought him there has also scared him away On page 56 Victor tells about the creation and what it meant to him and what happened when life filled the bodyI had worked hard for nearly two years for the sole purpose of infusing life into an inanimate body For this I had deprived myself of rest and health I had desired it with an ardour that far exceeded moderation but now that I had finished the beauty of the dream vanished and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart
