In volume I, chapter III, page 32, Victor Frankenstein remarks on the excitement and enthusiasm proposed in his desire to be a creator. "Life and death appeared to me ideal bounds, which I should first break through, and pour a torrent of light into our dark world. A new species would bless me as its creator and source; many happy and excellent natures would owe their being to me. No father could claim the gratitude of his child so completely as I should deserve their's." His expression of ambition shown here is ominous of his unhealthy obsession with being a framer of his own species. It is not enough for him to perhaps go on and have biological children, thus ensuring his legacy. He would rather be like a god and create a new species so that he could be exalted and praised. On page 29 at the very beginning of volume II, chapter I, Frankenstein comments on the affliction of the human mind in connection with emotion and the condition of the soul.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
