This paper expounds on masculine tropes in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein in an attempt to identify a root cause for the various oppressions at work in the novel--the oppression of women, indigenous people, and animals. In analyzing these oppressions, readers can see that they begin and are perpetuated by the novel's masculine figures, namely Victor Frankenstein. I also argue that Mary Shelley was aware of the intersectional politics she wrote into her novel, as much of her political life has been erased by the dominant, mascuine literary tradition. Thus, this analysis of Romantic masculinity is not limited to its fictional representation, but also extends to its historical real-life counterparts.

Amidst growing population and urban redevelopment, eighteenth-century cartographers turned to maps to structure the changing size and shape of cities. For example, topographical maps provided readers with details that visually enclosed and contained the increasing sprawl of a rebuilding London. Textual surveys, by such cartographers as William Stow, used narrative prose to expand the topographical view in order to show “where every Street, Lane, Court, Alley…or any other Place…is situated.” These maps and surveys flooded the market in the 1740s, the decade which also witnessed the intensifying growth of the novel.

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries “science” meant certain and systematic knowledge, so that what we now think of as humanities (for example, aesthetics or philosophy) could be sciences, while sciences such as chemistry (according to Kant) might still be arts.
