Lessons Highschool Students Can Learn from Frankenstein

Since school is about to begin in less than five weeks, it is high time students hit the books and begin on munching on literature that would be part of their reading list when school time comes. And one of the books in every classroom reading list is Frankenstein.

Messing with the natural order of things has serious consequences
When Victor Frankenstein created the robot and brought it to life, even not giving it a name, he unleashed an unseen force of destruction.  He created a living, breathing creature the unnatural way and then turned his back because the creature did not looked like what he envisioned.

There is evil inside each of us
Robot or human, we all have our dark side. We are all inclined to go to the dark by certain life situations which overall are confusing and disheartening.  The monster turned murderous after he experienced rejection and disgust because of its appearance.

Taking someone else’s life for revenge does not bring peace
Vengeance in the form of killing will never, ever bring complete peace.  It might bring satisfaction and a sense of justice but it will forever haunt us, no matter how wronged we felt.  Victor spent the last months and days of life just searching the monster and vowing that one of them has to die so that the string of deaths of his loved ones will end.
