I've recently read Mary Shelleys Frankenstein (1918 edition) and now have to write an Research Paper about anything in the book but I can't think of any good questions/topics/theses. Can anyone of you help me?
What the others have said so far is true.
One concept I came across when studying Frankenstein that I liked is viewing the text as a sort of Frankenstein's monster in itself in that it relies so heavily on literary allusion, it is almost like a work comprised of piecing together other works like the monster is pieced together. The entire thing is generally an homage to both Paradise Lost and Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It also alludes heavily to the Greek myths of Prometheus as well as Percy Shelley's Prometheus Unbound (the alternate title is, after all, The Modern Prometheus). Allusions to The Sorrows of Young Werther and Plutarch's Lives are also significant.
Oh and one entire chapter, and the beginning of the next if I remember correctly (chapters 10-11 or somwhere thereabouts) are a blatant prose retelling of Percy Shelley's poem Mont Blanc.
