The writer of this criticism is anonymous. From the article, it is apparent that the presumptive human works are frightful and despicable leading to personal misery. I appreciate the opinion that human activities leads to personal misery. The author seeks to draw attention to the vanity of human actions. In the novel, Frankenstein, Victor learns science before, and after his university work. Before he commenced his studies at the university, he focuses on alchemy, a science of chemistry. He desired to understand how to use base metals into gold and understand further the elixir of youthfulness. He acquired knowledge in the modern science. His combination of the traditional and modern science results to self-destruction. It is this challenge to ascertain the extent of knowledge one should acquire before passing the benefits to all humankind. This question leads to the uncertainty of the application of technology in the novel. In as much as the narrative is fictional. It is beneficial to understand how human beings can bring the dead to life (Florescu, 102). It is however more doubtful to understand the roles human have in bringing the dead back to life. This role is assumed the role of God. Victor’s contacts with the monster further highlights the theme. Human beings reduced this monster to an animal as an action to destroy him. They fail as the monster meets with Victor and seeks for a companion. At the end, Victor’s assistance to the friend leads to his utter destruction as the monster swears to kill him.
