This is a preview of the 5-page document
Read full text

Human beings make tools and techniques that do not work well for them. Technology fails human beings. They try to answer with technology, problems above problems. Frankenstein is a novel about oppressive forces. Dangerous pursuit of knowledge and cursed human inventions are the oppressive forces operating in the novel. Humanity or human beings are oppressed (literally and allegorically) in the novel. The oppressive force, the monster stands at the center of the action. He was rejected by the society. He starts dangerous activities because of his grotesque appearance and because of his perverted or abnormal manner of the creation.

He is out of strange chemicals and stolen body parts. Monster is the result of dark, supernatural workings and is not the pure result of collaborative scientific efforts. This dark supernatural working is another oppressive force that troubles human beings and leads them to destruction and death. Monster is the symbol of the oppressive forces in the world that are the brain child of human beings. Several of the human inventions are powerful and destructive enough to swipe out the entire humanity from the earth.

What about the invention of Atom Bomb. The inventor Albert Einstein was in the same plight as experienced by Victor Frankenstein here. What good it furnished for the betterment of the humanity. Was it ever found to be genuinely beneficial for a single individual in the world? The unwanted pursuit of knowledge has presented nothing but tears, pain, separation and absolute annihilation to the world. The origin of HIV is also suspected to be the result of some devilish pursuit of knowledge and inventions (in a laboratory).

The monster is the representative of this human knowledge thirst that works against its creator. The monster or the dangerous knowledge that Victor used to create the monster is the oppressive force that killed Victor’s brother, his wife and finally Victor. Monster was made by abnormal manner of creation. Abnormal knowledge track manufacture nothing but man eating monsters. Abnormal knowledge track is attempting to clone human beings. Abnormal knowledge track is destroying killing babies inside its mother. Abnormal creation has become the most popular field of study for scientists who represent Victor Frankenstein in the present world.

Aggressive and wrong hunt for knowledge or inventions is yet to introduce several more oppressive forces or monsters into this world. HIV has become an oppressive force that has gone much beyond the control.
