I don't see the big deal with calling the creature Frankenstein. Victor Frankenstein creates him, he identifies himself as the son of Victor, hence he is a Frankenstein. I'm not saying it's the most correct thing to call him but it's not technically incorrect. More to the point, why every time you call the creature "Frankenstein" some pretensions cunts gotta pop up and go "Actually, Frankenstein was the creator, you mean Frankenstein's Monster", like they even read the ******* book

You are in fact correct. The name of the monster is Adam, which Victor chose based upon the monster being the first. He also professed himself as the father/creator and that the monster was as to a son to him.

Hence, the name of the monster, is Adam Frankenstein, Son of Victor Frankenstein.

Oh my God, let me drop some knowledge on you. The monster never got a name! He compared himself to Adam, as in the first man, but he never had a name. He was not considered Victor Frankenstein's son in any manner, and either one would have been insulted by such a statement. Source: I have tea with the Monster every Friday. Just kidding, but I did read the book. I basically memorized every fact about it.

Facts and interpretations are fine, so let me offer one.

You are quite rude in how you deliver your ideas.

In the book the monster never actually got a name, other than like "wretch" or some horrible ****. But yeah you're right, technically he is a Frankenstein, but even Victor isn't simply "Frankenstein", he's got a family who have the last name "Frankenstein", so when someone goes "nuu the craetor was fwankisteen" they're referring to a family. Which I guess the monster falls under. Weird **** that book was, sad too.

I guess I'm a pretentious cunt too, then. I don't remember ever having to correct someone on this issue, but I could easily see myself doing that because these dumb things just bother me way more than they should. Sorry in advance if I ever piss someone off with my cuntiness

I was an English major in college so most of the people that mentioned it around me had actually read the book.

Most high-school graduates in the U.S. have read this book.

They may not have WANTED to, but a hell of a lot of people certainly HAVE read the book.

Depends on school/teacher. I had the option of Robin Crusoe, Moby Dick, or Frankenstein. The AP Literature class read a bunch of books that I don't necessarily recall, but Frankenstein wasn't on the list.

Well, no. I've read the book. I love classic horror literature. The pretense is in telling someone something about a book you haven't read, as is the case in most scenario where someone says "The creature isn't Frankenstein".

i read the novel for Mary Shelly's Frankenstein in school, and i would highly suggest it for anyone who likes classic/spoopy novels.

He is not called Prometheus but instead is referenced to him through the books subtitle "The Modern Prometheus."

I believe he calls himself Adam to show his relationship with his father to be like the one Adam has with God. It has been a while since I have read the book but it is meant to be more symbolic than literal.

In Chapter 16 of Frankenstein when The Creature is confronting Victor he says:

At length the thought of you crossed my mind. I learned from your papers that you were my father, my creator; and to whom could I apply with more fitness than to him who had given me life?

The Creature considers himself the child of Victor Frankenstein. He self-identifies as a Frankenstein, and we think that choice should be respected. That’s why calling The Creature by that name isn’t actually incorrect. He thinks he is the son of Victor Frankenstein, so it makes sense that he would take that name.

i don't call him Frankenstein's monster, i call him Frankenstein's creation because there's very little he does in the book that construes as monstrous instead of ignorant and what he does that can be considered monstrous most people are capable of.

That's just his name, like the fat biker called Tiny. If you call a fat biker "fatty", good luck.

That's cliche as ****. Something I saw recently, Frankenstein named the thing Proteus. Way classier than Adam.

no, but i think it suits the actor/character combination. i didn't like all of the religious stuff, but the story was good and he was a very good actor in it
