The article “A Feminist Critique of Science”, written by Anne Mellor, explores the rights and wrongs of unnatural science from the telescope view of a devote feminist. Mellor notes that nature cannot be controlled by science and shouldn’t ever be tried to. In Frankenstein, however, our main character Victor does not heed this advice, and decides to make life and death his personal plaything.

Victor is using nature, and life, unnaturally, and therefore is being unfair towards nature as a whole. To create a creature out of science is an insult to nature, and does not follow Mellor’s ideas whatsoever. In fact, it is the complete opposite, making Victor the antagonist of the natural course of human life and human death.
