– The Autonomous Ultra Pedant

Frankenstein is legitimately one of my favorite books, but I really hate how every time it comes up people have to parrot the whole “Actually, it’s the doctor who’s the real monster” spiel. And the argument’s just left there unquestioned like that’s the full extent of the novel’s thematic depth. It kinda reminds me of how modern audiences seem to keep on conflating, “This villain has sympathetic motives” with “The villain is right, actually.”
