Creature and Civilization Development

Prompt: In Frankenstein, the Creature recounts, “Of what a strange nature is knowledge! It clings to the mind, when it has once seized on it, like a lichen on the rock. I wished sometimes to shake off all thought and feeling; but I learned that there was but one means to overcome the sensation of pain, and that was death — a state which I feared yet did not understand.” (Shelley, Frankenstein, 120) To what extent does the Creature’s development reflect Rousseau’s theory of the development of civilization? * Need one counterargument * Do not use outside sources in the essay. The argument should be your own and the only material used should be two books which are – Rousseau, Jean-Jacques, Discourse on Inequality (Oxford) ISBN: 9780199555420 – Shelley, Mary, Frankenstein (Oxford) ISBN: 9780199537167, eISBN: 9780191579622
