Transcript of Frankenstein Epistolary Novel and Narrators

Epistolary Novel and the
Narrators in Frankenstein Epistolary Novel: a novel written
in the form of a series of letters By: Lucy Coles & John Kutch The primary narrator is Robert Walton, who, in his letters, quotes Victor Frankenstein’s first-person narrative at length; Victor, in turn, quotes the monster’s first-person narrative; in addition, the lesser characters Elizabeth Lavenza and Alphonse Frankenstein narrate parts of the story through their letters to Victor. This story is told through the frame story of letters written by Walton to his sister. So ultimately, it is all his point of view. But within that frame, Victor tells him his own story. Deeper still, the monster relates to Frankenstein his own experience. So ultimately we have the monster’s story as told by Victor as encapsulated by Walton’s story. So it is a story within a story within a story. List of Epistolary Novels The Perks of Being a Wallflower
