IDEAS THAT BROUGHT US FRANKENSTEIN Mary was surrounded by death her entire life She had a dream about her first child, she brought him back from the dead. After taking a summer vacation in Geneva, Switzerland with a Lord Byron, her husband Percy, John Williams, and Claire her step sister. She was raised by her father, who was quiet dismissive.
HOW THE IDEAS AFFECTED THE BOOK Because Mary Shelley new best how it felt to loose someone she loved, she lost many people in her life time. Because of Mary Shelley’s dream about her child this is probably the main reason Frankenstein was written. Most of the book was written in Geneva, Switzerland, and that is where Victor grows up Victor’s father seems very dismissive toward him, but with the younger children not so much, this is because Mary know how it feels to be dissed by her father.
