Don't act trollish, dear boy.


It's trolling to ask someone to prove what they're saying? Even when it is something easily provable?

Why are you spending so much effort and energy smearing me with ad hominem arguments? You've implied I'm snooty, I'm an idiot, I don't know what I'm talking about, that I haven't even read the book.

Snooty? LOL you say we should just listen to you because you claim to have spent a lifetime studying English lit and I have no real knowledge...and you're calling other people snooty?

So much effort trying to smear me, shame you didn't spend that effort just proving what you say is true.

he refers to Victor as his father, and several times refers to himself as an Adam


Yes, "an Adam", as I already said he is likened so someone who has been created, that text doesn't say and doesn't suggest his name is literally Adam.

Some of the major themes of the book are what is life? What is the monster, is he a man? A son? A creation? Just a bunch of body parts sewn together? And what is Victor? Is he a scientist? Is he god...and the creature his Adam? Is he just a monster as well?

These are the things the book is making you think about and when the monster says "I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam" he is implying that Victor is god and he his creation. The creature struggles with many identities through the book, "the creation" being just one.

Yet you didn't get any of that? The scholar of literature that you are thinks "I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam" is actually a simple declaration that Adam is his name? That's all? Why didn't he just say that then?

Actually, how about a little more context?

Quote:
I am thy creature; I ought to be thy Adam, but I am rather the fallen angel, whom they drivest from joy for no misdeed


Still claiming the above means his name is literally Adam?

Sorry this thread didn't work out for you, sorry you couldn't bully me off it, but most of all I'm sorry you just couldn't admit you're wrong.
