in a formal tone.
Examine the role of women in Frankenstein, meaningfully comparing and/or contrasting the function of women to the
function of the major male characters set against Mary Shelley’s personal life as the daughter of Mary Wolstonecraft in
the Romantic revolution. Be sure that you take a position–i.e., find an argument after you look at women in the novel
and Mary’s biography. Be sure you consider Mary’s mother and the influence her thinking had to have had on Mary. Does
Mary’s life demonstrate her mother’s ideas of women and their role in society? How so or how not? Is Mary a feminist? Are
the characters in her novel feminists?
