Very interesting! I love how Shelley's Frankenstein has been analyzed in so many ways, and I enjoy seeing different ideas develop and grow from her amazing book. Young applies the idea of monster/creator to slaves/slaveowners in America. The big question when monster/creator is applied to any group is who is the monstor?
