Critical Approaches

[As a means of fostering access to broad critical approaches repeatedly encountered with Frankenstein, both the text, in regard to areas commonly cited by critics in this regard, and the commentary have been loosely keyed in terms of methodology. This linkage is not, however, intended to be in any sense definitive, nor should it be construed in a reductive manner, since most critics adopt inclusive perspectives that can touch on a number of different approaches in the same essay. Rather, these links might best be understood as providing starting-points for any particular line of investigation being undertaken by the reader. Ed.]
