After reading the “Letters” section of Frankenstein, why do you think that Mary Shelley started off Frankenstein the way that she did? Why did she frame her novel with the epistolary? What effect does that have on the rest of the novel? Also, why did she begin her “Letters” section in the specific setting that she did? Why is the setting of this “Letters” section of the novel important? Please write a critical response based on this question.
Your paper should be 2-3 pages long (meaning at least 2 full pages), double-spaced, with 1” margins using Times New Roman 12 point font, and it should conform to the Critical Response Papers Rubric handed out in class and also available on Blackboard. You must also use at least 4 direct quotations from the novel to support the claims that you make in your paper, cited with parenthetical references in correct MLA format “like this” (Shelley 17).
