Read through chapter 12 and focus on page 2 of fear article (link below).
Prompt: In 4-6 pages (plus Works Cited), use a theory of fear to explore a social or contemporary issue that involves fear and loosely connect it to Frankenstein; how large or small this connection to the novel is really is up to you. If the novel is central, there is much to explore, and if the novel is merely a minor point connected to your overall argument, that’s perfectly fine. While you are welcome to include the work of other writers, Ferudi’s ideas should be referenced; again, this doesn’t have to be central to the paper, but it should be connected to your overall argument.
