Three Romantic Authors The romantic concepts of solitude and loneliness were popular within works of the 18th century The three authors Wordsworth Shelley and Blake all write about the nature and qualities of solitude and the impact it has on an individual Shelley and the Wordsworth include the theme of companionship within their work and the importance of this quality to someone suffering from loneliness In Mary Shelleys Frankenstein the monster battles with the feeling of loneliness and solitude The monster is running around Europe alone and finds himself in Switzerland He makes a home for himself in the forest after he flees the cities and villages where he is not welcome He watches from afar the DeLacey family and witnesses this small family that exhibits love devotion and care that all families strive to achieve Shelley shows traits of a Romantic writer as she describes this pastoral family in all of their rustic charm Romantic writers often celebrate the common folk in their works the people that make their living simply while engaged in simple life The monster describes to Victor Frankenstein his trials of living in the forest He steals for food and shelter is scarce He recounts his situation and says It was dark when I awoke I felt cold also and half frightened as it were instinctively finding myself so desolate I was a poor helpless miserable wretch I knew and could distinguish nothing but feeling pain invade me on all sides I sat down and wept Shelley 84 Because the monster feels so lonesome he secretly turns to the DeLacey family for comfort and companionship He observes them from the forest for a long time careful not to make them aware of his presence He becomes quite fond of his family and for the first time feels love I felt sensations of peculiar and overpowering nature they were a mixture of pain and pleasure such as I had never before
