Mary Shelley

Studying Frankenstein at A Level (AS & A2)

When studying Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein at A Level (AS & A2 Level) you’ll need a thorough understanding of the themes, characters and Gothic mode of writing you’ll find used in the novel. The York Notes Frankenstein study guide gives the most comprehensive summary of each volume of the 1831 edition of the novel you’re studying at AS & A2 level. The revision guide also deconstructs each character including Victor Frankenstein, the monster and Robert Walton.

The York Notes Frankenstein revision guide goes further than other English Literature study guides to help you achieve the best possible grades. You’ll not only revise the novel itself but the contexts and critical debates surrounding Shelley’s work. Understanding Frankenstein in the context of social unrest and the scientific developments of the time, and being able to discuss different critical angles from the original reception of the novel to its Feminist readings, will help you achieve top A Level grades.

Using your study guide’s Grade Booster is the best way to target a high grade in your English Literature exams. This section of the Frankenstein study guide shows you the typical features which examiners are looking for in answers to Frankenstein questions at AS & A2 level. It will show you how to compare Frankenstein with other texts and write high quality responses, which clearly demonstrate your understanding of the novel beyond the plot, characters and key quotations.
