Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on types of literary conflicts. Having students create storyboards that show the cause and effect of different types of conflicts strengthens analytical thinking about literary concepts. Have your students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict them using the Storyboard Creator. In the storyboard, an example of each conflict should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the scene, and how it fits the particular category of conflict.

In Frankenstein, much of the conflict stems from the resentment and rejection that the monster feels from society. Chapter by chapter, Frankenstein's monster grows more hateful of his creator and turns to murder to release his anger and enact his revenge.


Examples of Literary Conflict in Frankenstein

MAN vs. MAN (MONSTER): Frankenstein vs. His Creation

As the creatures' feelings of rejection and bitterness grow towards his creator, the monster uses murder to make Frankenstein pay for what he has done.


MAN vs. NATURE: Frankenstein Creating Life

Victor bringing his creation to life violates the laws of nature. When he is asked to repeat the process, he denies the monster by destroying the monster’s bride.


MAN vs. SOCIETY: Monster vs. Society

Rejected because he is hideous, society banishes the monster and he becomes an outcast.
