Frankenstein WHO : Mary Shelley. Published the novel by the age of 20. She was interested with scientific developments of her time and with their dangers as well. WHAT : Best known work of romantic fiction. The novel captures the romantic critique of enlightenment reason and early 19th century ambivalence about science. Dr. Frankenstein creates a monstrous man who has human feelings, becomes lonely, longing, and murderous self hatred causes him to wreak havoc among all. She cast the novel in characteristically romantic fashion, as a twisted creation myth, a story of individual creation gone wrong, and a study of agonizingly powerful feeling. Because of these reasons the novel became a point of reference in West. Culture. She saw the mind as a source of imagination and creativity. WHERE : In Europe, mainly written by English writers and poets. WHEN :1818 WORTH : Shelley’s work led artists and ordinary people to seek out experiences that would elicit intense emotions and spark leaps of imagination and creativity, experiences that could range from traveling to “exotic” lands to using opium. Her romantic style along with others encourages the daring to defy conventionality. B. Sadler Report: Concert of Europe WHO: The Congress of Vienna called for this concert. France, British, Austria, Prussia, and Russia formed the Quintuple alliance. WHAT: was formed as a mechanism to enforce the decisions of the congress of Vienna. Called for a “concert of Europe” to secure the peace and create permanent stability. Many of the statesmen who met at Vienna were followers of the values of the enlightenment and were skeptical of crusading. They focused on forging a different conception of authority, centered of legitimacy. What made a ruler “legitimate” was international treaties, support, and a series of guarantees. WHERE: Vienna WHEN:1815 WORTH: Concert of Europe was one of the first serious attempts in modern times to establish an international society to maintain the peace.
