Scribe 2/8/2013

Happy Friday!

Wednesday's homework was to read chapters 3-5 in our Frankenstein books.
Those who didn't read chapters 3-5 will have to catch up on it over the weekend, as well as read chapters 10-13 and be prepared to answer the questions listed below.

Next Wednesday, the Last Lecture Part 1 is due, the childhood portion. It needs to be at least 2-3 pages, since the ending result will be a five minute memorized presentation to the class at the end of the semester.

The only homework is to catch up on reading and finish up part 1 of your last lecture!

Today, we're discussing this question: "Why won't the narrator reveal the secret of animating human flesh?"

Read 10-13: (These are questions she will be asking on Monday)

-What does Frankenstein want to do when he first meets his creation again?

-What does the creature ask Frankenstein to do initially?

-After being driven from the village, where does the creature finally settle?

-Name one thing the creature does to secretly help people in the village.

Those who haven't read chapters 3-5, these questions will need to be answered by Monday:

-Who is Frankenstein?

-Who is Elizabeth?

-Who is Clerval?

-What is created?

-Give on defining characteristic of the creation.

-What happens to Frankenstein?

-Why won't our narrator reveal the secret of animating human flesh?

**Shelley was neglected by her father.
**In the story, she writes a child dying and then her actual child dies.
**She had a nightmare about the creation from the story standing over her and staring at her, hence inspiring the story of Frankenstein.

-What is Frankenstein's responsibility? How is he responsible for his creation?
