This 51 slide power point highlights important passages from the Letters with an in-depth analysis of how the theme of "prometheanism" is demonstrated by Robert Walton. Some discussion of Rime of the Ancient Mariner is also included. As an accompaniment to this powerpoint, use my Promethean Traits Handouts to have students find and analyze evidence that supports Promethean Traits. After exploring the in depth passage analysis of promethean traits in the Letters, students are asked to continue looking for passages that reveal Victor Frankenstein's promethean traits. I have found that my students are much more comortable finding passages on their own and providing an analysis of them following this presentation. I usually get great thinking from them!
My other power point on the introduction of Promethean traits is an excellent resource to use first, before applying and analyzing the theme.
