learning goal: how might Mary Shelley’s parents have influenced the writing of Frankenstein? (recognizing echoes in content, tone and language)

Parent Writing 1 Caleb Williams (MS’s father, 1794).  What overlap (content, tone, language, etc.) do you sense between these opening pages and the part of Frankenstein you have read so far? Mark the photocopy with page numbers from Mary Shelley’s novel.

Guiding Questions for Fiction”: So far, toward what lesson does MS’s novel seem to be pointing?  While considering this question, focus your study on just one fictional element from the “Guiding Questions” sheet.  Be prepared to show how aspects of this element produce your working answer to the question.

Parent Writing 2A Vindication of the Rights of Women (MS’s mother, 1792).  What overlap (content, tone, language, etc.) do you sense between these opening pages and the part of Frankenstein you have read so far? Mark the photocopy with page numbers from Mary Shelley’s novel.
