Mary Shelley’s story of Victor Frankenstein’s monster remains a classic of English literature. We have produced a new four-part series that deconstructs the novel and examines the context and background, characters, themes and writing styles. Full of engaging visuals, this new teaching resource has been designed for secondary English classes.

Frankenstein and the Monster

When Victor Frankenstein created his monster he never named it, yet its complex personality and struggle for identity and acceptance provides a profound insight to the human condition. This clip examines the troubled relationship between Frankenstein and the monster, and the role of other characters in the novel, including William, Dr Clerval, Elizabeth and Captain Walton. It is an ideal resource for English literature students.
