Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is clearly a novel that investigates many themes and ideas, but of those I thought it interesting to explore the effects humankind and nature had on technology and vice versa. To be more specific, I intend to show the inevitable power struggle that Shelley creates between Victor Frankenstein and his pursuit and experiment of technology and eventually the creation of the monster. Ultimately, who or what holds the power and control?

in the end though, that Frankenstein was able to realize that its only when he messes with technology, that it counter-acts by messing with him.
I find it important to say that although this paper may come across as slightly anti-scientific or as placing the blame on Victor's scientific knowledge and aspirations, in fact the problem is not with the science itself, but instead with the character of the person who makes use of it.
