Abstract: At nineteen years old, Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein, a story that would captivate audiences for years to come. Victor Frankenstein, the main character, brought a being to life by using electricity. Modem medicine, too, has tried to control and manipulate life through scientific innovation. With such advancements in medicine, ethical concerns arise, such as copying another human's DNA, and conducting stem-cell research that may cure disease, but kill art embryo. Victor Frankenstein discovered the key to life, but in the end his knowledge was nothing but a burden. Frankenstein is a commentary on how we handle power and treat others, and on the consequences of our actions. I have written a series of essays involving Frankenstein including Mary Shelley's life and how it influenced the novel, film interpretations of the novel, old and new scientific developments that relate to the novel, and the case of Terri Schindler-Schiavo.
